You all remember (who could forget?) the outcome of "shoe bomber" Richard Reed's attempt to blow up his sneakers. Well, our latest failed bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, had his bomb materials hidden in his underwear. Yes. His underwear.
Granted, naked air travel might be more comfortable — but there still wouldn't be enough leg space for anybody who wasn't a midget or a double amputee. More immediately, though, the airlines now have an excuse to stop providing blankets.
Personally speaking, my air travel hasn't been curtailed by terrorists — the fucking airlines managed it all on their own.
