Augmented Breasts Will Require Additional Inspection at Airports
TravelGearBlog ^ | September 27th, 2006 | TravelGearBlog

Posted on 09/27/2006 10:34:09 PM PDT by Westlander

The TSA’s changes to the complete liquid ban may require persons with augmented breasts (or other body parts) to comply with further inspections at security checkpoints.

Excerpts from the TSA bulletin effective Sept 26, 2006:

In addition to the above changes, the following guidance is provided to ensure the health and welfare of certain air travelers the following items are permitted…

Items used to augment the body for medical or cosmetic reasons such as mastectomy products, prosthetic breasts, bras or shells containing gels, saline solution, or other liquids; and items exceed 3 ounces or are not contained in a one-quart, zip-top plastic bag, you MUST declare to one of our Security Officers at the checkpoint for further inspection.

Since I absolutely detest "augmented" breasts, this may have a positive untintended consequence for me...

My "augmented" breast replaces one removed by surgery. I hope they pop it. It's more trouble than it's worth...

Dunno about explosive there Mime, but they certainly pass as dangerous in the wrong hands.

Yes, but just imagine if somebody used "augmented breasts to hide something. It would give new meaning to the phrase "that girl really has some killer T*ts"

Sweet smiling, tap-dancing mother of all things decent and holy -- and it took some effort to make it through that exclamation with neither profanity nor blasphemy -- if those things aren't explosives, they're still torture devices. No human spine could carry those without immense discomfort. Any "doctor" who would implant such a thing should be at Gitmo.

This really isn't all that funny. I don't think they are as concerned with surgical implants as they are with artifical enhancements, like gel filled push-up bras.

In the last scare there was talk about baby bottles containing explosive liquid, so it's not that far a stretch that they would put an explosive gel in a female terrorist's bra. The bra could be easily removed and the gel used once the female is in the plane.

Go down to the lingerie department and feel some of those push up bras, they hold a mighty lot of gel and it could be easily removed and replaced with whatever gel they needed for their purposes.

It's no stretch at all (pun intended) for me to imagine that one could find a bent volunteer willing to have explosive implants surgically inserted. Why not? If you were already willing to die, would you care where the explosion came from?

What, we're supposed to not laugh at something so clearly risible? This is a hoot.

Of course somebody can sneak gel onto a plane. Hell, they can do it easier that fake boobs, with a gel-filled baggie shoved up their butthole -- more room, harder to detect, and if they're going to blow it up it hardly matters which part of the body explodes first, does it?

So what's next, body cavity searches on every passenger?

Since there's no constitutional right to fly as a passenger on an airplane, why don't we all just forget flying and go back to trains and buses? /sarc

Me, I prefer to laugh about it. I'm flying cross country this Saturday -- I NEED to laugh tonight.

I think it all goes to prove that you will NEVER be safe on a commercial airline. You cannot think or expect that the government, the airlines or the poor working joes who scan people and luggage day in and day out, can prevent or protect you from a terrorist action on a plane.

If we can think of a scenario, you can very well bet that it's already in consideration by the terrorists and they have things up their sleeves that normal people haven't even considered yet. I'm a frequent flier so it's not a very comforting thought for me, but it's reality.

You are 100% correct.

It is foolish to think that the government, or the police, or anybody else, can somehow make life safe. Life is challenge and danger, in addition to beauty and calm.

It cracks me up when NASA talks about "making sure the Space Shuttle is safe." SAFE?!?!? HAH!! Right, strap yourself into a tin-can mounted on a pair of huge firecrackers with a tank of hydrogen, blasted to Mach-10, and shot into space... "SAFE"?!?!? What a joke. Astronauts get my vote for guts, every time.

Personally, I like high, fast rollercoasters, I ride a motorcycle, and I hang over the edge of every tall place I stand. I take it for granted that the airplane I'm riding in Saturday might go down, blow up, or whatever. My family's with me, no less. But like you say, it's reality, and staying home in bed with the covers pulled over one's head is no way to live.
