You want to get rid of the TSA?
It's that simple. No, don't tell me you have to. You don't. You get enough people together and you all refuse to fly until the TSA is dismantled, and you know what'll happen? The airlines will get things changed in a hurry and the TSA will evaporate in a puff of invalid logic. It's that simple!
"Oh but it isn't and I have no choice and I need to fly and-"...
I can't agree with this more.
You can be guaranteed that if *we* all stopped flying to protest the TSA, the TSA would go away because the airlines would scream 'bloody murder'. You can also be guaranteed that this will never (absolutely never) happen, because people in this day & age put their (mostly petty -- a dying family member is not petty) needs before something as important and fundamental as this.
Wouldn't it be a good start if we all could pick a day (or a week, etc.) that no one booked a plane ticket in the name of TSA protest? It would send a message, at least, but wouldn't completely stop the craziness of what is happening today. When can we have a "no fly day"?
I always LOVED that car, and yes, I'm old enough for it to be the definitive Batmobile.
I'd love to pull a Bat-turn on I-10 one day.........again, but in that car rather than my own.
It's the definitive Batmobile to me also. I was old enough to still enjoy the (first rounds of) re-runs, and see it in an "antique" auto museum close to the area I grew up. I remember making a point of touching it, to see if it was a real car. Ah, the good old days.
... and still coding
I'm 48, and wish I had another 24 years to do all of the things I want to do coding-wise alone. I haven't learned it all yet, and still want to know how everything works.
It's a great lifestyle after all this time. I own my own firm, work from my home office, get out to the boat on Fridays and work from there if needed (during summer), and make my own time to work on my own terms.
Coding at 48 is great!
Still aghast that this could be coming from someone in such an influential position.
The kicker is that this could actually happen. After what's gone on over the last 11 years, not much surprises me anymore.
