Anger Management

Anger Management


We recently blogged on stuff you should be afraid of, like breast milk and toothpaste. Now, apparently, you should be afraid of people that look determined or angry (click image above to expand).

Let's say you've had a fight with your spouse in advance of a business trip - hey, it happens. So you get to the airport and suddenly you're pulled over, bundled into a room, and given the full rectal. Sure, you weren't going to blow up an airliner, but why not be on the safe side?

Taking a page from Israeli airport security, the transportation agency has been experimenting with this new squad, whose members do not look for bombs, guns or knives. Instead, the assignment is to find anyone with evil intent.

Doesn't that give you a warm feeling? Let's strip search the woman who just had a fight with her boyfriend - who cares about the guy with the bomb who looks cheerful because he's going to get his 72 virgins in a few minutes? As a member of the Reality Based Community, don't you want them to find the bomb or the knife instead of the middle manager who just got canned by his boss?

And if you're pissed off because you were bumped off the last flight? You'll never on that plane.
