Protruding shower taps at elbow height: somehow builders always manage to get this right, no matter how tall you are.

When getting on an international flight, how many times is it really necessary to search both me and all my luggage?

Surely once would suffice?

I guess it's not THAT bad but when you've flown a couple of times in a short period, it reaaalllly gets to you.

Some people just have a "search me' face Boogie. Try walking through with a backback....you're royal game!

my S/O has long blonde hair, wears converse, black t-shirts with skulls and stuff on.... and had a backpack.  it just screams "i have drugs in my anus!"

Hmm.. Since I and your S/O don't look exactly the opposite, I should endeavor to burn my black t-shirts with skulls on it. And yes I usually tote a backpack.

BUT, the one time I was allowed to run through security because of a flight fuckup, I was wearing a t-shirt that had a controversial slogan on it with crosshairs. I was even taken up on it by an angry American who took offense to the shirt, and who sat accross from me on the bus-ride. Somehow though, border security didn't mind.

if americans are so touchy-feely and emotional, i shall, if i ever travel over the oceans, endeavour to wear every controversial t-short i own.  just to pick a fight with a yank.  old danny has a t-shirt with a praying mantid crossing its arms, in lucid green, and very pointedly saying 'atheist'.  either people over here are too polite to say anything, or too oblivious.  i would LOVE to have some bible slinger give me lip.  im combatative that way.  love a good sparring.  had to sit through a wonderfull bluecheese and weed infused pasta last nite, listenting to one bird wax lyrically how 'die Here' gave her peace, and how she is forgiving her dad 'in die naam van Jesus'.  i was too stoned to argue the point.

I'd love to tour China with a "Free Tibet": written in Chinese on a red background.

Atheists that do not try to consistently apply skepticism in all areas of life.

Closet theists who call themselves atheist because they are pissed off at religion, not because of skepticism.

People who argue with you with a prior intent to make you offend them, or take offense to something, so that they can try and claim a moral high ground. (Not gonna look at anyone in particular)

The surprising benefits of lemon!

I remain perplexed!
================================
Institute of Health Sciences, 819 N. L.L.C. Charles Street Baltimore , MD 1201.
This is the latest in medicine, effective for cancer!
Read carefully & you be the judge.
Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.
Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations? As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.
The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that: It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas ... The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.
