And easily optimized by starting with a guess at the person's age - are
they 20, or 45, or 70?  Take 5 years either side, and you're down to 3,650
or so guesses.

I was thinking more along the lines of hanging around just outside 
security or immigration with my long range antenna and laptop carefully 
concealed in my roll-on.

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before somebody exposes the 
embarrassment of this 'nifty technology' by publishing a list of 
everybody that visited the airport on a given day.

Why dumpster-dive when you can sip coffee at the airport?
