Weekend Trip to Seoul

Arrived in Seoul earlier this evening. The security situation at Beijing Capital Airport was ridiculous, I’ve never seen it this bad. I had to take every cable out of my bag and send it through in a separate bin. I have to assume something happened recently or was prevented from happening.

Airport security isn’t what I’d describe as humane. It’s hard to feel dignified when the security personnel is running his hands up your inner thighs and across your ballsack in front of a bunch of strangers. Maybe that’s the point. A little reminder that you’re not in charge and you never were and nobody is going to tell you why you’re doing this, if there even is a reason, but it doesn’t matter because even if there’s no reason, you still have to submit yourself to this theater.
