Sai, who is seeking an injunction against the TSA's new mandatory full-body screening test (but only for people they don't like), flew out of SEA-TAC on Dec 31 and was told that the full-body scanner was mandatory.
He refused to go through the scanner and he was refused boarding, his bags removed from the belt and returned to him. He demanded to see the TSA Transport Security Manager, who overruled the Supervisory Transportation Security Officer and said Sai could travel after a pat-down. However, the TSM demanded that Sai explain the medical nature of his liquids, which he is not required to discuss with the TSA. After more wrangling, his liquids were screened and he was allowed to fly.
Sai captured most of this on video, and he will be submitting it with an affadavit to the First Circuit, where his ongoing, pro se actions against the TSA are underway.

Mozak is a game where you score points for participating in the mass-scale, crowdsourced mapping of dendrites in scanned brains of humans, rodents, and other organisms.
Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
