First off, thanks to all of you (both) who keep reading. My temptation to quit blogging was not a cry for attention... just crying.
I will work on some beer posts. I have 4 beer available in the house, so drop me line and come by (maybe during the holidays is best)
So.... we all know the controversy about the new full body scanners at most US airports. I, for one, don't get caught up in the controversy. I find it very odd that we have willingly surrendered many liberties for all sorts of "public good" and airport scanners are the things that push people over the edge? Really?
Personally I think it gets legs because certain groups scream and cry about them, and the lemmings follow.
Me... yawn.... give me something real to worry about.
Anyway, I started noticing I was always stopped after going through these. The person TSA agent proceeds to a minimal "pat down" focused on my left leg. Hmmm, whatever.
But I kept happening. More specifically, my left knee. In fact, I turn around and see it on the little screen. It happens with different pants, different scanners, etc. Always the same knee.
So Tuesday I go through and jokingly say "let me guess, left knee?". Sure enough, left knee.
TSA dude says "Do you have any pins or screws? any surgery". No
But wait. Could my 30 plus years of running, some with 2000 miles plus years have an effect? Could it be scar tissue from running? Could it be a lingering effect of the infamous Sawtooth bee attack? (same knee, and I still have numbness there)
So any of you orthopods (Nic?) or geeky tech scanner experts want to try and theorize?
So how is that for a post?
