I just gave the guy the death stare the entire time and ask him how my penis felt to him. He had the grace to be embarrassed about the whole thing.
See, something like that is just so useless. More than your idea of how useless the security is.
So you gave the guy who's just doing a job so he can support his family a death stare, and made a comment about your penis to him. Wow, that showed him.
Maybe he wasn't so embarrassed as thinking "How original, that's only the 15th time today someone said something like that."
I'm not going to argue with you cy. You say you can't imagine a child being used to carry explosives. I can imagine it.
I don't fly more than a couple of times a year, so I'm honestly not up as to how much good it does, so I don't have an opinion on that.
I do know though that none of the precautions being taken would embarrass me, and I'd just be cooperative so I could get to my plane as quickly as possible.
I'm just not that memorable a person physcially to cause a stir with security, or cause anyone to talk about me later on. If they did, who cares? It seems narcissictic to me that someone would think the people working there care what you look like, or are getting something out of patting you down.
I do know that in the years I have flown, I've heard my share of people at the airport complaining about whatever measures where being taken at that particular time. Complaining to whoever is standing near them, which unfortunately is sometimes me.
I wouldn't care if I had to fly every 2 weeks, it's just not a big deal.
