Last week some Nigerian fucker tried to blow up a plane in Detroit.
He didn't get the explosion he was looking for the first time around and instead only lit his pants on fire.
Now, this guy decided for some reason that it was best to blow up the plane not from the bathroom but from like row 15, seat A - thus drawing the attention of his fellow passengers who jumped on him and stopped him from getting a do-over.
This is now, including the shoe bomber, the second gie that tried to blow himself up with explosive chemicals they smuggled onto airplanes.
Had either succeeded, people would be going nuts but since they didn't we're all take a very blase' attitude toward this shit.
I'd put this in the 'shit we need to deal with right away category' and the thing is we have a way to deal with it.
Full Body Scan machines are essentially an x-ray through your clothes that can detect things like, oh-I-don't-know, explosive being smuggled onto a plane in order to kill everyone on board.
Yet, it seems these haven't been deployed in all airports because they are, one - too expensive and, two - too invasive.
First, I will respond to those who complain that it would be too expensive. We are spending trillions of dollars to invade foreign countries to kill mad people and build democracies all in the name of stopping Islamic terrorists from blowing up planes. This would be maybe a couple hundred million dollars. Sounds pretty cost effective to me.
Second, to you, the ACLU and privacy worriers who are concerned about full body scans cramping their style. Fucking blow me. Stop bitching. You know what I'd consider invasive? Being blown to pieces landing at Liberty International Airport.
Yeah, so someone you will never know will see you naked but they'll also see the explosive that terrorist is going to use to kill you.
I'm OK with that trade.
