Angry Bright Ideas from DHS

Washington Times - Politics, Breaking News, US and World News - "Want some torture with your peanuts?" by Aviation Security

This bracelet would:

• take the place of an airline boarding pass

• contain personal information about the traveler

• be able to monitor the whereabouts of each passenger and his/her luggage

• shock the wearer on command, completely immobilizing him/her for several minutes

The Electronic ID Bracelet, as it’s referred to as, would be worn by every traveler “until they disembark the flight at their destination.” Yes, you read that correctly. Every airline passenger would be tracked by a government-funded GPS, containing personal, private and confidential information, and that it would shock the customer worse than an electronic dog collar if he/she got out of line?

This has got to make the day for Multipurpose and Bottomeline1.

I've already got my pager looking frequency scanner, and if those Nazi's try to stick me between two fat people again, the rest of the passengers and I are going to see some fat people pulling massive hip-hop shapes and some serious on the ground wriggling all flight long.
