Fake boarding pass generator.

Further proof that airport security is a joke. Like we needed more.

I like the suggested name on that page!

Well, hey. Way to undermine what's left, I guess.

So anyway, what was that screed you posted to Pasha earlier? I got the feeling there was more to it than his snarky comment you replied to. :-)

I dunno, I just felt like running the online complaint letter generator instead of actually trying to address his pompous indie-rock-pete wanking directly. I wanted to respond somehow, but I got better things to do with my time, you know?

Ah, OK. :-)

I wonder how many lists visiting that page put me on...

Apparently I need to leave work early tomorrow in order to catch my flight from Boston to Palmer Station in Antarctica.

or just lock the cabin door, and give everyone a box cutter as they board the plane...

re: real name vs. fake name

If you want to travel anonymously, you need a ticket, so you buy it under your fake name. Last I checked, TSA doesn't actually record your name when you passed through security, so yours would be on record for all of 30 seconds.

I have access to both a bag-tag and boarding pass generator, as well as access to sufficient info to make accurate fakes.

good thing I'm not a terrorist..... or am i?

The FBI raided the guy's house and took his computers...


If I ever notice another security hole at the airport, I guess I'll just keep it to myself.

Nice. Rather than fix their own goddamn loophole they harrass someone for pointing it out.

Seems like spite, not any legitimate search.
