Comment: I get systematically checked (Score 1) 1160

by s0l3d4d (#16043536) Attached to: You Have Been 'Randomly' Selected?
for a variety of reasons:
* I don't look 'typical' for what the passport says
* I don't or usually don't live in the country that has issued the passport
* The passport for the country is issued in another country than what the passport is for
* I am not American but the tickets I use are often paid with an American credit card. When the (return) flights from Europe to USA were paid with an American credit card, that is an instant check - even when paid by spouse.
* If I was traveling to more interesting continents than just Europe and North America, I bet I would meet the rubber glove .. plane foods makes me sick, so when flying intercontinental and not eating or drinking, that is usually depending on the country, a higher risk for search.

Ya'll hear about the geometer who went to the beach to catch some rays and became a tangent ?
