TSA destroys first RepRap child

Remember the RepRap, the first 3d printer to be able to replicate most of its parts? TSA incompetence destroyed its first child.

Since I just got back from a trip that involved a reasonable amount of flying, including watching some seriously Laurel and Hardy antics at the Detroit TSA screening machine, bags all dropped and bounced, I think it's a testament to the failure of our government that these bozos have anything to do with air travel.

Of course DTW (Detroit airport) always makes me wonder that we don't have airplanes falling out of the sky: People have bought tickets, you know how many people will show up, how hard is it to staff appropriately?

And Mark Hershberger had his camera and BlueTooth headset stolen by the TSA, which goes back to the first rule of flying: If it's important or valuable, it's carry-on.
