Things I Don't Believe

I'm at the airport right now, waiting for my flight to Seattle (via Denver).

The TSA decided that everyone was going through the millimeter wave machine today. I was driven to opt out based on the TSA agent telling everyone that the waves bounce off our clothes. Really, could that possibly be true? If the waves stay on the outside of everyone's clothes, how could this machine be any better than just looking at people and the outsides of their clothes?

Fortunately the government is not good enough with databases to keep track of the fact that I frequently do whatever is within my rights to slow down the line at security, such as having my allergy pills visually screened. Not to mention that my summer job has sent me traveling with large amounts of cash and several cell phones in my carry-on bag.

Unfortunately, I am not rich enough to fly Net Jets.
