WebPulse: Screening, sweating and The Situation

The online chatter-battle over how much bod one should share with airport security screeners continues as Thanksgiving travel begins. If you're curious which airports have body scanning technology, find that here. When we're traveling, we'll be loading up on headache soothing apps and a few drinks. (Starbucks is giving away certain menu items until November 21.)

Ooh, yeah ... that makes us sing Kanye's catchy old "Workout," ditty ("All them mocha lattes/ya gotta do Pilates") ... Pause for little WebPulse dance. Ok ... Where were we? Oh, yeah, getting fat. There's no doubt you'll hear someone lamenting that they need to get in the (high-concept) gym after stuffing themselves with turkey. Beat 'em all to it and get on that treadmill and sweat for a few. Rest assured that no one expects you to be Tom Cruise. Look, America's most beloved Scientologist is sitting on the world's tallest building! You will never be as physically able as Tom Cruise, and in that you should find peace.

We're not sure how to transition to discussing a weird ad about safe sex featuring Bristol Palin and The Situation. There are so many cheap jokes to be had here. We don't know where to start, so we'll leave it to you. Just watch.

    There is a real easy solution to the problem of full body searches. If you have a bomb you need to hide, don't take the plane. I don't want a bomb carrier who protests the scan on the plane with me. I would much prefer an impersonal scan to being patted down.

    I have been frequent business traveller long before September 2011.

    The ado brewing over body scans is far out of proportion.
    If one has nothing to hide, one has nothing to be concerned about.
    One can always drive, take the bus, train, or walk. If you want to fly then suck it up.
    I recently experienced a body scan in Detroit. It was painless and efficient.
    Do you really think that TSA folks are turned on by one among a thousand negative body images?
    If you can't accept simple safe measures, then travel by a different mode.

    Suppose a woman with small breasts puts on a larger bra and conceals two explosive devices, one on top of each breast in the bra. She makes it through the metal screening, then, she refuses the scan. The pat-down won't include touching the front of her breasts as it stands now. So, will she get onboard a plane and blow herself and the pane to bits? Has anyone considered that possible scenario?

    I suggest that Homeland Security Require business travellers and VIP's have a TSA boarding card that their company stands behind their employees not to be carring illegal weapons so boarding those paying passengers could go faster leaving more time for TSA to monitor other passengers on Planes, Trains and subways. Also I think its time we start monitoring radiation levels of trucks and cars on our Interstates.

    I DON'T THINK IT IS CNN'S JOB TO TRY AND PROVOKE THE CROWD TO RIOT WHICH IS WHAT I SAW AT 5 PM ON CNN. YOU ARE TO REPORT AND NOT GET MAD BECAUSE YOUR RATINGS ARE BEING EFFECTED. ANDERSON IS MORE UPSET THAN THE PROTESTERS AND A REPORTER SHOULD NOT GET UPSET OVER RESULTS THAT CHANGE. I HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE UPSET THAT HE DID NOT STEP DOWN BUT CNN DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT AS YOU ARE TO ONLY REPORT THE NEWS AND NOT TRY TO MAKE THE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!
