Money says TSA agents were involved in helping pull off the heist. In other news, if you are a terrorist and want open access to an airport, apparently all it takes is giving the TSA goons an iPad Mini or two.

Each one has a serial number and is logged with Apple in the shipping process. These will sell, and the SN will ping at Apple HQ when the iPads are turned on and activated. Eventually, they'll have enough activated to start tracing back where all these folks got their iPads, and after following those threads they'll eventually find the guys selling them.

And if the guys selling them are not the guys who stole them, the sellers will most certainly sing when pressure is put on them, and the thieves will be caught.

This was a stupid crime. Never steal something that call call home and say "Hi Dad, it's me. I'm in JAIL."

Eh, something tells me the Lucchese family might have had something to do with this. And if so, it's doubtful that anyone directly involved will be caught, let alone prosecuted.

Jument: Actually you can. I flew to NYC recently and for kicks put a quarter-full standard tube of toothpaste in my liquids Ziploc. I even put the Ziploc in the tray with my shoes. No problem. I think they may have started to realize that the whole liquid business is absolutely farktarded.


Ziplocs for flying? I only fly 2-3 times a year but have never actually used ziploc bags for my liquids and they have never given me an issue.

Depends on the airport, time of day, position of the moon, etc,
Sometimes you'll get by with liquids still in your bag, no one seems to notice or care, other times, they'll argue with you that your ziploc looks bigger than a quart, or your individual container is larger than 3 ounces (contrary to the packaging).
Lately they've calmed down a bit, they need an overhaul. Even the guy who created the TSA thinks that they've gone too far,
