Sure It Did, Right

Spray Tan Sets Off TSA Sensors

Agents Forced To Give Glamor Model Special Private Attention

Uh huh, yeah right. As if 25,000 people a day don’t go through airport security wearing spray tans. It’s just that very few of them look like this:

The next time you fly, you can be sure airport security has you protected from spray tans, based on one model’s tale.

Fitness model Laura Prestin, who hails from Canada, has been featured in magazines like American Curves and Muscle Magazine. She has been a fitness trainer for celebrities and Playboy models.

Prestin says her trip to Cancun ran into some roadblocks when a machine used by airport security to screen travelers showed a “big, red flashing 88%”which caused her to be pulled aside by security guards.

Prestin said the guards brought her “into some room” and began “rummaging through my bag” while also questioning her if she could “think of any chemical that would be so potent or leave such an impact on the screening?”

Initially, she said no, unable to come up with a plausible answer for the government agents.

After thinking about the various cosmetics and hair care products she carried with her, Prestin remembered that she had received a spray tan the night before.

After explaining the tan to the security agents, Prestin said, “they burst out laughing, patting me on the back and putting all my stuff back together.”

Hey, I went through a similar ordeal because my bag had a damp bar of Dial soap in a bag inside. Perhaps TSA’s specialized detectors really aren’t all that specialized after all, and just react to high levels of esters (aromatic substances)? Hmm, I wonder if wearing too much perfume will get you “randomly selected” for “special attention”? Or maybe all it takes is a tight body and a hefty set of bolt-ons ... perhaps the screeners’ own pheremones set the thing off?

This could be her sending a threatening message to TSA. Better investigate right away!

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
