College Student Demonstrates Best Way To Avoid A Pat-Down: Wear Only A Speedo

When Steven Slater instructed holiday airport travelers to “dress appropriately,” he suggested dressing up with “an elegant wardrobe paired with good manners.” But that won’t do much for you if you’re going through a TSA line. The appropriate wardrobe for this adventure? Speedos.

The bloggers Jon and Eric tell the story of college student Jimmy:

Why the speedo? With the way TSA screening is going it only seems like the next logical requirement for getting on an airplane. Soon TSA will be having us strip down to make the screening process more efficient, but not if we take a stand. In this sense Jimmy was merely obliging the TSA, but he was also exposing the ridiculousness of their policies. With the full-body scanners and TSA agents putting their hands down our pants, let’s be honest, a speedo is pretty modest. Jimmy reviewed Utah State Law, Salt Lake City International Airport rules and regulations, and TSA policies and regulations as he prepared to execute his protest. If you’ve read up on the law you’ll be surprised at the power you have when opposed by authorities.

      I don’t want to be groped and I don’t want to be irradiated and have my nude picture taken.(Not by the TSA anyway.) I would much rather have a strip search. No touching, no pictures, no radiation. I’m flying in a couple of weeks, maybe I’ll take the speedo approach myself.

      I flew yesterday out of DC. No body scan and no patdown. I fly regularly, and I’ve only had to use a body scanner once (I couple months ago) and I’ve never been patted down. You people are paranoid and ridiculous. If a plane got blown up you would complain that TSA isn’t doing enough to protect us, and now you are saying they do too much. If you have such a problem with the security procedures, don’t fly– those of us frequently on planes don’t care to have you anyway.

      And do I really need to point out the ridiculousness that someone who is hysterically upset that a professional in a private room will see the “contour of their body” from an anonymous scanning image is MORE comfortable stripping down to a speedo in front of the entire security line?? Absurd.

      I’m sure the TSA officials who were just trying to do their jobs for the good of all fliers were really impressed by this spoiled, ugly twat’s little protest. Anyone who saw this, or who watched this video, probably just tried not to throw up.

      A “professional”? Here’s an example of what these “professionals” are like: http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/05/06/1617423/miami-airport-screener-beats-co.html . High school kids have been known to show more maturity than these characters.

      Next, we’ll have someone trying the same stunt but replacing the speedo with a thong just to show the level of absurdity.

      @ChicagoJimmy: The radiation from flying is 500 times the radiation from the machine. To refuse the scanner and then get on an airplane is just irrational and stupid.

      What’s irrational and stupid is using backscatter x-ray machines for this purpose at all. The millimeter-wave imaging machines provide essentially the same image quality with no risk of cancer. The millimeter-wave machines cost between $100,000 and $120,000
      ( http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/10/11/travel/main3356425.shtml ). The backscatter x-ray machines cost is comparable but possibly a bit higher (ones installed at JFK airport near NYC cost $150,000 according to http://www.longislandpress.com/2010/10/22/x-ray-scanners-debut-at-nyc-area-airports/ ).

      According to http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/27/business/27road.html the T.S.A. wanted to get price reductions by encouraging “competition”. So, basically they are trying to save a few bucks (a fraction of the cost of the scanners) by increasing the public’s risk of cancer, the cost of which is born by someone else.

      @Philosophe: Means yet another white kid is running around seeing how far he can push authority without any repercussion.

      But I’m sure you already knew what it meant because it’s plain English. You just didn’t like the phrase, regardless of how true it is.

      This isn’t even a Speedo. Speedos are V-shaped, not square-shaped. This is more like a lycra, square-shaped bathing suit for men.

      Maybe someone will walk through airport security wearing one of these units and nothing else:

      With this one, they wouldn’t even need to use a metal detector:

      @PIP… what is he supposed to be all tan and shit for the video? Tans are over rated….. the fact that he did this is good enough. Some people are overly superficial on looks.
