Yup, New Insane Rules

Gizmodo has a leak of the new rules, and if it is real, they are complete bull. I am not allowed to know where I am?  The captain can’t even point out “those of you on the left will can look out and see a great view of Mount Rainier!”.  Inflight wifi and live tv and even those overpriced in seat phones all not allowed…  Etc.

Idiots. This does ZERO to enhance security, and just makes is a pain in the ass to legitimate travelers.

Are they ever going to stop being assclowns about this stuff?

You saw our unofficial advice guide to fly after the crotchbomb. Here’s are the TSA’s official security rules, as of Christmas. Read on, because it has all the hairy details:


1. During flight, the aircraft operator must ensure that the following procedures are followed:
1. Passengers must remain in seats beginning 1 hour prior to arrival at destination.
2. Passenger access to carry-on baggage is prohibited beginning 1 hour prior to arrival at destination.
3. Disable aircraft-integrated passenger communications systems and services (phone, internet access services, live television programming, global positioning systems) prior to boarding and during all phases of flight.
4. While over U.S. airspace, flight crew may not make any announcement to passengers concerning flight path or position over cities or landmarks.
5. Passengers may not have any blankets, pillows, or personal belongings on the lap beginning 1 hour prior to arrival at destination.
