TSA Security Gaps make for good Security Theater

Submitted by admin on Tue, 12/21/2010 - 23:33

Long before pat downs and body scanners I would laugh at the TSA's protocols and say its was merely there to make grandparents feel safe. Today they call that Security Theater. According to wikipedia, "Security theater" is a term that describes security countermeasures intended to provide the feeling of improved security while doing little or nothing to actually improve security. Honestly we all live with and accept risk in our everyday lives.

So despite the fact that the TSA fails to stop loaded guns from being carried onboard a plane they insist on the need to spend billions of dollars on naked body scanners.


Oshkosh Defense to Deliver 40 more M-ATVs to SOCOM

Submitted by admin on Tue, 12/21/2010 - 02:16

You just have to love the new All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) that are replacing the HMMWV. Oshkosh already has a $1 Billion contract to produce 2,244 of their M-ATVs. While obviously looking more badass was part of the DoD's original request, these trucks are designed to be more survivable against IEDs and other threats common to the current battlefield.

I guess you can file this under "it could have been worst". This is a Penal Battalion based in Mulino village near Kirov Oblast, Russia. Its not a prison but think of this as the worst post among all the bad assignments Russia can choose from.

Tactical "rip away" panties for women

Submitted by admin on Mon, 12/13/2010 - 00:51

Typically I would say, "why didn't I think of that" but well quite honestly like most men (Note: I celebrate 13 years of marriage next month) I already did. I just failed to make it into a tactical application. All jokes aside this does make perfect sense, unless you "go commando" no one wants to get caught with their boxers err panties down. The product is called Pant Ease (sounds like panties).

Spike TV brings guns to beginners

Submitted by admin on Sun, 12/12/2010 - 03:45

Spike TV has a series of gun related shows that just started up. Some of these are targeted towards the "never shot a gun" crowd but even that makes sense as the primary audience of Spike TV is likely a 16 to mid 20s male that is not currently watching the Outdoors channel.

Check out the links below to watch full videos of previous shows:
