    You dont have to be a psychologist to figure out that the TSA has no clue. It is rather sad when the suits decide that they will misapply behavioral data to prediction heuristics, and then the companies implement programming code, that, smart ( but untrained in stats, and analysis) programmers turn into algorithms.

    I swear, if brains were gas, some of these people wouldn't have enough to drive a flea-mobile around the inside of a Cheerio.
