I figured it was only a matter of time. She's better dressed than I was expecting though.

Heh. Although technically, there are still... places... one could hide dangerous items, even when wearing a bikini. (Heck, I have hair down to my behind - do it up in a bun and I could hide all sorts of blades, mini-radio-devices, vials of poison etc in it.) So I call "paranoia fail" on the part of the airline security. :p


If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

It was paranoia fail as soon as they let people get on planes. A determined, well-trained person would be able to cause the same amount of havoc without the stuff they don't want on board as with it. (e.g. nail clipper file)

But the scanners and pat downs target the areas she covered with her bikini...unless she was wearing a thong bikini, shouldn't she have still gotten the pat down?
