Every once in a while it’s fun to take a step back from the whole TSA security discussion and take a look at how far we’ve come as a society in the past ten years. We really to have our entire bodies patted down to fly on an airplane? The bamboo sandals that I had to take off at the checkpoint are really a security threat? Venti caramel macchiatos are actual beverages that can be purchased at Starbucks? What a world that we live in.
As far as we at Gadling Labs can tell, that disbelief is what’s behind the site thedailypatdown, a collection of awkward TSA patdown photos and where the only blogged text on the entire site so far is “Your Daily Dose of Security Theater”. Each day, another picture of some poor soul being searched by an equally uncomfortable security officer is posted to the tumblr blog, and so far they have a pretty slick collection. Check them out here.
