1. Reminds me of when I used to travel with two laptops.
I'd often have to give client demonstrations of my company's server software, which required me to network two computers together. For about two years, I had to travel around the world with two laptops. At just about every airport, I'd be made to endure long waits, elaborate searches, endless questioning, and veiled threats. Because, presumbaly, terrorists need two computers to hatch their diabolical schemes. And law-abiding citizens could never, ever, have the need to carry two computers. Oh no.

And now the lackwits at the TSA haven't heard about SSD drives. Never mind that Dell, Lenovo, Apple and others have been putting them in computers since late last year. Never mind that the drive in the MacBook Air is the same as in every iPod that's been manufactured during the past three years. No, they don't understand it, and what they don't understand must be bad. It's the Incredible Hulk school of security.

I feel so safe.
