    How do you go about profiling something when you don't know what that something looks like? Example. 10 black guys can be profiled if you're looking for a black guy. How do you profile 'a Muslim'? What racial traits do you look for? A turban? A beard? Your passports don't state your religion. Do you profile entire 'Muslim countries'? Okay then how does the system work with planes coming in full of people from a Muslim country? Yeah. No. Profiling Muslims? Pretty f'n stupid.

    Search everybody who gets on a plane. Make them walk through metal detectors. Even that one grandma in 2002.
    It's even better to know that you don't have a better idea.

    BTW, you do realize that this dude went through a metal detector, right?

    Really? Yes. I'm pretty sure searching everybody who gets on a plane is a lot better than looking for turbans and beards.

    BTW, you do realize that this dude went through a metal detector, right?
    If only you realized you didn't know how to read :

    Search everybody who gets on a plane.
    People who go through metal detectors aren't always searched or even the majority of times.

    I say we should profile Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buhdists, Hindus, Pastafarians, Athiests, and any other religious (or lack of "religious") group I forgot to mention.

    Captain. I like you and know you dude. So I know you can't be serious. But in case you are, what does a Muslim look like?

    This is a Muslim :

    - Yeah no - searching everybody who gets on a plane? According to our resident expert in airplane security, that wouldn't be a better idea.

    Well, maybe the cute little girls can pass. The others, bend 'em over and strip search 'em. They look like trouble to me.
