The TSA’s fun side

Their instagram account is the best part of the whole service. Chainsaws and what not. Its also crazy how many people forget they bring their gun to the airport because “its become an extension of them.” Their phones must be jealous, or they don’t have smart phones. But!

A history of the concentration camp
