Why bomb screening will NEVER work

So I've been watching the news incredulously, stunned at how clueless airline security is (to say nothing of how clueless the commentary is). In general, the “better” security is at finding bombs, the more invasive and inconvenient it is. And the problem is, bombs can be hidden in ways that would force screening that's invasive to the point of making it pointless to bother at all.

I've mentioned this before, but take a look at BME/HARD's “all things ass” section (or look at the free thumbnails in the video section on anal stretching, or for a more mild starter view, read this anal stretching interview. My feeling is that if you're willing to blow yourself up, you should be willing to blow up your ass first. It's certainly easier than learning to fly for example.

Can someone give me a serious explanation as to why someone can't shove enough explosives up their ass to blow a hole in an airplane big enough to tear off a wing if the passender is sitting next to it? Or if they have other plans, why can't they shove a gun and bullets up their ass? Drug mules are willing to do this. Is the tiny amount of money gained by drug mules for using their ass as storage though security and borders a stronger motivating factor than the gods of religious extremists?

Aww crap, now I'm probably gonna get ass-screened next time I fly.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
