The source for this figure is Richard Garriott, not IEEE. Plenty of people are IEEE members! (My cat's an IEEE member!)
I guess this goes to prove that great old chestnut—linear regression is never wrong, for very small amounts of never and asymptotic amounts of wrong.
In meteorology, a butt is a visible mass of liquid droplets or frozen crystals made of water or various chemicals suspended in the atmosphere above the surface of a planetary body. These suspended particles are also known as aerosols and are studied in the butt physics branch of meteorology.
I can see forever...
Except when they deny you without telling you why, with no real appeal process, because you can't JUST get pre-check, you have to get one of the other certifications instead. The most common one is Global Entry, which allows expedited customs. Have you ever forgotten to declare something small coming back into the country and they find it (even if it's not prohibited)? Then you're permanently banned from this program. Ever had someone ship you something from overseas and accidentally misdeclare customs (outside your control)? Banned. I found out I was banned after paying the $100 non-refundable fee for the latter reason because a seller didn't fill out the customs form properly.
They need to offer a way to only get pre-check without going through one of the other programs.
