Re: Stupidity

Back in 2000 I was a frequent traveller to NY so enrolled with their hand geometry biometric system (INSPASS) so I could skip the immigration control queues. It worked very reliably for me, however the woman from the NY Port Authority who enrolled me had huge problems getting it to verify her identity. She told me that due to her role the system was configured to require a much more stringent level of verification and her ability to access the system reliably varied with time of month as her hands routinely swelled.
