No, I didn’t get groped

I see that most people think I would have been, but it didn’t happen. I went through a metal detector, so perhaps they didn’t find the MYSTERIOUS YELLOW BAND that appears on my tuchas in the See-You-Naked Machine.

I’m a lucky boy.

    I haven’t been on a plane in *decades* – how long has it been since 1990? – wow, all the fun ‘n’ games I’m missing!

      Also 2 for 2. If you keep your nose clean, you’ll never ever be groped again.

      If you send books to me with return postage envelopes, I’ll draw cats in them (one per customer).

    Are you doing TSA-Pre these days, PCC[e]?

    I don’t vote but your comment about your yellow band reminded of another famous yellow band.

    It is sedimentary sandstone rock on the Lhotse face, “the first rock a climber touches on the route up to Everest.”

    Its groping is done by crampons with the climbers using “about 100 meters of rope to traverse it.” Climbers welcome the groping; the yellow band remains silent.

      Yes, Ive seen it as I’ve hiked to Everest twice. Sadly, I have only 35 mm slides but this photo shows it well:

    OT, boss, but Fats Domino has gone pining for the fjords; no longer seeking his thrill on Blueberry Hill.

      Only Little Richard and the Killer left. God, I feel old.

    I doubted you would. It is more likely to happen on international flights and not domestic flights.

    New TSA rules go into effect tomorrow, Thursday, so who knows what will be after that.

      Oh Jeez…Will I not be able to board a plane wearing my Medieval armor?

        Curiously, medieval armor is not on the TSA list of prohibited items. Nothing between Medications and Metal Detectors.
        Body Armor is permitted, although I don’t think they are classed the same.
        Give it a go and see what happens. 🙂

    I flew from Midway to Vegas September 15th and I didn’t have to take off my shoes. That was a banner travel day for em.

      I try to fly JetBlue as much as I can and they have me on TSA Precheck, so short line, no shoe removal, no laptop exposure. I have a pacemaker/ Defibrillator so I have to go thru body scanner with raised hands, but that goes quickly.

      It was a summer thing. They never call when you get back to the city.

    For some reason nobody is organising a march against groping at airports.

    I’m never going to shift my warehouseful of ass hats at this rate.

    Don’t take it personally, but AI machine-learning have memorized your tuchas. If, however, the yellow band disappears, expect the probes to begin in earnest.
