Shadowknight: hitlersbrain: I had to give up a pair of nail scissors in my carry on a few years ago. Then I got on the plane and ordered a coffee. They gave me a 5 inch, hard plastic stirring stick with a end sharp enough that I could easily have stabbed someone to death with it./ Too much, Too late.My sister is a flight attendant, and said that a fully uniformed and credentialed pilot of her's couldn't get onto the plane because he had a metal butter knife in his bag that he actually got from the first class galley on the previous plane. The idea that he could take down the plane without the aid of that butter knife, namely by simply pushing the stick forward and closing his eyes, or that there were literally dozens more of them waiting on the very plane he was about to go fly completely eluded the TSA agent. My sister has a ton of stories about the stupid TSA issues, and I myself just seem to have bad luck with them. Meanwhile, while I live in Europe and travel regularly, I have never gotten more than a "can I take a look into your bag? Then you, move along."/my fellow countrymen have become a nation of bed wetters
highendmighty: And how many more 9/11's have there been since the ban?OK then.
