I'm offended, but I'll take me a peek anyways
Aren't our American cousins so very quaint some times.
I'll give the Government a DoS
...at the ballot box.
Google operate on 3 principles
If you live in China, Iran or Australia you;
Go to the bottom of the page and click on: "free speech mode is off."
This, of course, does nothing.
Smokers stink and then they die
Find yourselves another planet, OK.

"Passengers must not be selected on the basis of personal characteristics (i.e. on a basis that may constitute discrimination such as gender, age, race or ethnic origin)"
.... isn't that EXACTLY what the security guys SHOULD be doing?
They should be targeting, not randomly selecting.

Link it to FailBook and Twatter and there you have it.
6x4s available on board
The airport could print & sell the images to passengers after they board.
A sort of holiday memento.
Like the photos they take as you board a cruise ship...

Stewardess 2: "No, that's more like 5C"
