I made my own. With four months of isolation and boredom, I've actually gone through multiple iterations with multiple styles and patterns. What I've found most comfortable is a modified version of...

From a protective standpoint, a face shield in addition to a cloth mask will offer the wearer some additional protection against infection, by covering the eyes. So if it's a little weird looking,...

I think there's more to it than that. They could simply spin it, as so many politicians and bureaucrats do, by saying that the threat has passed, and it's now safe to lift the LGA restrictions. But...

The science behind the plot is also pretty complex and sensitive. Multi-part liquid explosives aren't something you can easily mix up in an aircraft lav like two-part epoxy mix. From what I've been...

The answer is the same as virtually everything else TSA does: "Because we said so. Now shut up and sit down."

Hyperbole aside, the logical justification is that the Covid-19 pandemic presents a...

I have no idea what the actual infection rate is, I simply chose ten as an example to show how the infection could spread at a geometric rate without precaution. Ten is an easy number to multiply by....

Given that 1,171 TSA employees tested positive, the number could be in the tens of thousands. If all 1,171 were screeners, and each infected ten people during the course of a work shift, that's...

I never have any issues with my chargers and power blocks. I think it may be because I have then stacked neatly in my bag's compartments. They're typically all stacked together in one compartment,...

The video is very illuminating, not only in regards to the type of touching performed, but in regards to its actual purpose. It's obviously nothing but retaliatory and punitive.

I think what catocony meant was that when TSA was established in late 2001, it did not hire many of the experienced screeners who had been working prior to 9/11, it hired an entirely new workforce of...
