Suitcase-cam

Peekaboo, Mr. TSA!

Ever unpack your bags when you get home after a trip and find one of those “courtesy” notices that some unidentified TSA agent has inspected the contents of your bag for “security” purposes? It's more than a bit creepy and unsettling to think that some faceless security officer has been poking through your undies without your knowledge, all in the name of supposedly preventing terrorism.

A carefully concealed video camera in your suitcase, set to automatically start recording as soon as the case is opened, would at least you know what, exactly, it is that they're doing with your stuff back there, and who, exactly, is doing it.

       Well, there you go giving away my /next/ idea. I was going to post it, but I decided that three TSA related ideas at once was excessive…

       I've never found them. Either my luggage is above suspicion, or they just don't bother to leave notes.

       //We're talking about the TSA here, not Skilcraft.//   

       The main difference being that Skilcraft employs the /physically/ disabled.   

       I keed, I keed. The truth is I have no[thing but] respect for the [brave] men and women of the [] TSA.

       Actually, [Max]'s luggage may not legally be unpacked by anyone without a permit to handle weapons-grade plutonium.
