Are you calling security theater and keeping the larger set of sheep from panicking and not flying impractical? We could fake it, but as you well know, any "fake" theater would be found out and backfire. Gotta make it look good. Anywho, all that radiation should be good for something, I probably need to tag the post with "and we welcome our new spidey-sensing overlords!"

Yes, but if the difference is more than an order of magnitude, and I suspect it may well be, then arguing that you are avoiding flying because of the radiation of the security checkpoint is just plain silly. Better to start some low altitude zeppelin service, remembering to use helium.

OK, so all you need is an identical twin gullible enough to drink water given to him by you during a trip you bought for him in NYC.... then you go and assassinate the president after having given your twin Washington DC water to drink while you guzzle NYC water at the scene of the crime. Do a quick getaway and finger your twin. The jury will convict in a new york minute.

You know, a working fission reactor has been done already... I think it's called the "sun". I believe the process goes something like this: 1) Place order for at least 2.0E30 Kg of Hydrogen 2) Wait for UPS/Fedex to deliver to your house 3) Wait for gravity to pull all of this Hydrogen together ..... 4) Profit!

You were lucky.

We used to dream of paper plates.

Why, when I was a young man, our competitor would buy us out and the european union would step in and block the sale, causing mass layoffs and gutting the company beforehand.

I like work; it fascinates me; I can sit and look at it for hours.
