Ahead of his time....

Come on, it's only going to be another few years before we all have to strip down to be able to board a plane. This guy was just conforming to a future screening regimen.....

The Chasers pulled roughly the same stunt a few years back...

But they didn't get arrested, because the had their own video crew following them. As a matter fact, the did it with bathing trunks on and the security guard said they ought to take those off as well !

TSA

All this guy has to do is go though the courts in the US and wait.

It's the old chicken and egg defence, what will come first his court case or the TSA demanding all passengers stripe naked to be searched.

My moneys on the TSA.

Oh and if you wondering I have no interest in going to America while they have one of the biggest terror organisations in the world the TSA. Simple test what terrorise you more Al-Queda or the TSA?

Stripe Naked

Scott, if you look like a zebra with your clothes off it is probably better to keep that to yourself.

"...wearing nothing but glasses and a fine beard."

And where was he wearing the beard?

At least someone paid enough attention to make sure the beard looked good...

No one is holding a gun to his head

He isn't being forced to fly. He can walk, take a bus, cab, train or row boat with out being checked for security.

I wonder what job he has?

hmmm,

"He's never really under any stress. He works for a computer company in California. He does something with the Internet"

Not stressful? that counts out most Tech jobs, does something with the Internet, Comfortable with nudity?

Only one thing it could be!

He reviews Porn for a living!

Lucky bastard!

Good to weed out these nutcakes before they get on a plane

Soon they'll be parking a truck with white coat lads at each airport for potential passengers or pilots needing some R&R at the padded cell hotel.

Maybe they should creat a new seating system for people like this

Have them sit in a specific seat and when the plane reaches 20,000 meters, eject them.
