Hmmm....is there anything that could be kept in a 3 oz flask which could actually kill everyone on a plane if it were released?
 
2006-11-19 09:33:12 AM
Agree... this isn't new. They stole my hair gel!

Then once you get in the airport, everything they confiscated is for sale in their shops.

I call it conspiracy!

NineInchNader: I'm surprised no one's used ceramic knives yet. Seems like it'd be easy to get those past security - it's almost as if the parties responsible for 9/11 have accomplished what they needed to accomplish and aren't even trying anymore

Heck, I'd think you wouldn't even have to work that hard. Just rip off the tray table in front of you and improvise a shiv out of the busted up plastic or one of the aluminum supports.

Had a guy next to me complain up and down that he wanted his large toothpaste to go with him and that he "didn't appreciate" it being taken away. Yeah I'm sure the TSA worker gives a crap. He kept on repeating that "didn't appreciate line"

I hate when people say the "I don't appreciate" line. It sounds so prissy and pretentious.

If you fly, you have demontrated you willingness to surrender your rights.
It's that simple.
I the vast majority of sheep said, hey, enough of this herd mentality, I'm an individual and I have rights, and refuse to fly, then it would have an impact. But sheep don't do that.
You vote with your money.
You spend money on demonstrating your willingness to give up your rights.
Anyone who flys and takes exception with that may meet me outside and discuss it. I'll be the one with the shears.

Didn't we try that once only to have the government bail the airlines out with our tax dollars? Spend it willingly or not, it's going to the airlines.

Can we start having a serious conversation about a nationwide high-speed rail system? The most you can do to a train is make it stop or derail - it's pretty much a given that it's not going to go anywhere the tracks don't go.
 
2006-11-19 09:43:36 AM
2 months ago, they didn't stop me when I boarded the plane with $12000 in cash, a digital camera that didn't work, and a cell phone.

The really interesting stuff was in my checked bags though, which did not have the typical inspection flier when I got off.

Good work morons.
 
2006-11-19 09:45:15 AM
Don' give the airlines a penny. Fark 'em if they can't run their lemonaid stand like an independent business.
No bail out for you!
Car companies, too.
No more free rides.

After we won the war on disco, and the balding of America due to the death of hair bands. Hair care products sales are at a new low. The terrorist have infatuated the the beauty industry to fund the war on Christmas. The more we take, the more we make school of thought to raise funds has to stop! Please write Santa to stop this crazy thing...

And the terrorists have won. Very sad what this country has done to itself.
 
2006-11-19 09:49:42 AM
thejoyofpi: The threat of your funny circus compound doesn't seem to deter people who intend on going down with the plane. Someone could just pepper-bag-spray their plane into another several buildings and that'd be that. Your security is silly. If you want to be 'safe' in the air, just start securing passengers to seats - wrist and ankle style. Call it BondageAir, charge extra.

What they need to do is put people in cryo-sleep like in The Fifth Element or Alien. There'd be no security issues, they could stack you up like a Japanese apartment building so they'd make more money on tickets, no food service, no carry on baggage, no mind numbing boredom. Just conk you out, you wake up in Australia.

hehe...I love when people say "they stole my shampoo!" or "they took away my water!"

I'm not taking away any of yer shiat. You are voluntarily leaving it at the checkpoint.

In fact, I have to dispose of your shiat because you didn't take the 30 seconds to learn what security policies were.

You can travel domestically with an unlimited amt of cash.

You can also carry your cell phone and your broken camera as these do not pose any security threat.

Every trip to dispose of somebody's prohibited crap means more delay for the people who took the time to know the policies and do it correctly.

I've got spray on mosequto repellant.
I hope they let me take it, its real swampy inland of Mumbai lots of mozzies and maleria.

So you're a security guy. You don't see anything pointless or out right ridiculous about the security measures regarding liquids? I know you're just doing your job but you can have an opinion too.

meekychuppet: I am pretty sure that soon we'll have to be nekkid to fly.

I'm not sure how I feel about that. For some reason, even when I fly to LA, there's rarely anyone I want to see naked. No, I think the bad would outweigh the good there.

every time I post on a TSA thread, I get treated like I wrote these policies.

I have had positive interaction with 99.9 % of the passengers that come thru my airport.

I don't bust balls because that keeps people there longer and defeats what we both want, to get you out of my ckpt.

==================================
I actually looked at security policies before leaving. They had changed while I was traveling. How is this my fault? And yes, they are stealing it, otherwise they wouldn't sale the same bottles of water, drinks, and other liquids that were just taken.
 
2006-11-19 10:16:14 AM
I wholeheartedly DO NOT agree with current restrictions regarding liquids and gels particularly of the type that fit into people's pants pockets anyway, but I'll abide by the policy until they change it.

I should also point out I had no checked bags to put the items in, as I was traveling light as not to get my stuff lost.

No tonguedepressor, every new stupid security theatre rule that the wankers in the TSA come up with is what causes the delays.

These aren't policies, they're regulations thought up by shiny pant bureaucrats who have to be seen to be doing something, anything that appears to be making airline travel "safer".

Take the stupidity of the boarding pass vs ID check. It's still possible to enter the gate area on one ID and travel on another.

1. Print out and change boarding pass to match fake ID
2. Enter gate area with fake boarding pass and fake ID
3. Enter aircraft with real boarding pass and real ID

The simple solution? Move the security check to the gate and combine the ID check with the boarding check. This is what is done in intelligent places like Singapore. It has two effects:

1. There isn't the stupid restriction on people going to the gate to see people off/welcome them when they arrive
2. Only the people with a real boarding pass and matching ID get on the flight.

The only reason it's not done is that the airlines baulked at paying for the extra X-ray/guard facilities. Yet the US government continues to waste money and personnel on stupid confused badly thought out and executed so-called "policies".

What those security policies are is stupid.
Voluntary? Like either you give this up or you walk from New York to LA? That kind of voluntary?
If you are serious; DIAF if you are trolling; good job, you pulled off the brain dead security guard perfectly.

Mugato:Do these farking nimrods actually think this is helping in any way? 9/11 happened because of BOX CUTTERS.

Um... no. Boxcutters are inconsequential really. If you could sneak a box cutter on an airplane today (probably not hard to do), try sticking a boxcutter in somebody's face and watch what happens when 50 passengers go medieval on your ass.

Prior to 9/11, airline pilots were instructed to meekly comply with hijackers. The terrorists could have been holding a crayon and the outcome would have likely been the same. The passengers weren't terribly worried because nobody had hijacked a plane and deliberately crashed it. The military wasn't looking or able to react quickly to hijacked planes within the US interior.

9/11 was a paradigm shift that raised everybody's awareness and that's why the skies are (somewhat) safer today. All the rest of this TSA crap is just useless window dressing.
 
2006-11-19 10:20:11 AM
GuruSarx, you have the option to go back to your airline and check whatever it was that you couldn't bring in.

Or you could bring it out to your car, leave it with friend or family that's not flying, or mail it to yourself.
Thus the "not stealing it" remark.

I dont have any.
This is a returning trip.
All my stuff is already there, I didnt bring anything back last time.

tonguedepressor: I have had positive interaction with 99.9 % of the passengers that come thru my airport.

Because passengers are too scared to have anything but a positive interaction because it will result in

a) hassle
b) missing your flight because of extended hassle
c) a visit to a backroom
d) all of the above.

Now go find me someone (not working for the government) who thinks the TSA is worth a damn, go on, scoot.

Do they not put the stuff in a big trash bin with wheels that you could train a dog to haul away?
 
2006-11-19 10:22:26 AM
In the old days, when the terrorists were content to blow up airliners using a time-bomb, the way to speed your way through security was to not have checked baggage. Checked baggage would go through additional layers of scrutiny - in some countries, you had to identify your luggage on the tarmac before it was put in the hold.

Now, it looks like the smart thing to do is to put everything in checked luggage, and board with just your boarding pass and maybe a book (if that's still allowed...just don't bring the anarchist cookbook). Carry-ons are more hassle than they're worth.
