Middle finger

I have to travel for work a lot. My defiance is small, but defiance none the less. Some of you might recall the prisoner photos of US sailors from the USS Pueblo during the Korean War era. The communist took photos of the captives - supposedly being treated well. But the sailors where shown with their middle fingers our for the world to see. Of course the Korean culture at the time didn't understand.

When I am forced to go through the back scatter machine, I raise my arms but extend my middle fingers.
