Touched by the TSA

With National Opt-Out Day around the corner, check-in service Loopt is planning to reward travellers who opt out of body scans in favour of getting their junk touched by the TSA by giving out ten... iPod touches.

National Opt-Out Day is coming, and to celebrate, checkin service Loopt is planning to reward those travelers who opt out of body scans in favor of full-body pat-downs. The prize? An ?iPod touches.? (Nice one, Loopt.)

According to the Loopt blog, the checkin service has 10 iPod touches up for the taking, which will be awarded on November 24 ? a.k.a. The Day Before Thanksgiving, a.k.a. A Super Busy Travel Day, a.k.a. National Opt-Out Day.

All one has to do to snag a touch is check in at an airport via Loopt (on any handset), write a bit about being patted down, and push your checkin to Twitter with the hashtag #touchedbyTSA.
