On the one hand, all common sense has been expunged from airport security. On the other hand, he should have known that all common sense has been expunged from airport security and not used the word "bomb" in any context.

Depends on how you treat the air port security drones and what air port.

A few years back, one of my co-workers (company head driller) was flying to Calgary to look at a drill the company was thinking of buying.  He got caught at the air port with a knife.  The knife was missed on x-ray, but it was found because it tripped off the explosives sniffers.  This was a knife that I borrowed now and then to cut sticks of dynamite in half to make primers.

And to make matters funnier; he was a convicted felon.

He was out of security in 15 minutes after that.

Why?  He didn't try to bullshiat them.  He kept his answers to "yes sir" and "no sir" as much as possible.  And he had the phone number of the home office with him.

Petty inspectors/cops/whatever will go MUCH harder on you if they think you're disrespecting them or challenging their authority.  Doesn't matter if they're a Wal-Mart reject mall cop or air port security; they have JUST enough power to fark with your day and they will do so if you piss them off.  So swallow your farking pride and be polite and respectful to them, because they can mess with you a lot easier and more deeply then you can EVER do to them and they can get away with it.

Idiot. Trying to be clever and farmed himself over. While I have little belief in the standard airport security theater, joking about bombs in the queue is stupid as hell. That can and should get a response from the drones.

Bomb references at airports haven't been allowed since long before the TSA. Although the TSA should have known better, at least this guy wasn't making a stupid joke about a bomb, he was referring to his actual sandwich. But common sense went out the window years ago.

It wasn't a joke. He wasn't talking to security. He was talking to his friend about a farking sandwich and he called it by its name. Unfortunately Barney Fife overheard him. Once again we cower in fear because there's a one in a trillion chance of terrorism. Instead we have to put up with a one in one chance that some thick-skulled, mouth-breathing idiot is going to make us walk around in sock feet while trying to hold our pants up because we have to take off our belts. The full body scanners also give us the exciting choice of whether to be irradiated or groped. Yeah America!

We are better than this.

It's not even that. It's the suburban twat housewife on her first commuter flight to the big city who over hears the stupid sandwich comment and reports it, and this security guy has to explain to his boss why he didn't do anything, meanwhile the whole terminal is shut down and searched. Security theater is a joke but anyone this stupid deserves multiple UFIA.

And if idiots didn't antagonize the system, it would be a non-issue. People do this shiat on purpose all the time because they think it will be funny. Then the whole system responds as designed and people get pissed.

CSB time - some idiot who went to my college sent his gf a package and wrote 'bomb' on it because he thought it was funny. No one was amused when the FBI showed up.
 
2013-04-18 03:01:18 AM
I believe I've been to the place in question (Sal, Chris, and someone something's) and even had that sandwich.  It was pretty good, but I wouldn't miss a five hour flight because of it.

I once got a package in the mail (post-9/11, obviously post-Unabomber) that was literally vibrating and making weird noises.  It turned out to be a bizarre animatronic stuffed animal from someone I know who has a severe mental disorder, which still freaked me out.  I don't know how it got past USPS security.

All right, serious question.

Has anyone ever been joking about a bomb in the airport and subsequently found to have an actual bomb? Ever?

It's only a joke if they don't actually have a bomb.

If I'm ever called for jury duty, and the case is one where somebody murdered a TSA agent, I'm voting 'not guilty.'
 
2013-04-18 03:58:04 AM
I had a girlfriend tell a TSA agent to "Be careful, it might explode" in reference to her overstuffed backpack which was being searched. I think seeing me face palm was the only thing that kept her out of trouble.

I think I say this every time this comes up: It has been a federal crime to make jokes about bombs on planes since oh, about 1972. This is not new, and it has never ever been funny.
 
2013-04-18 04:15:45 AM
Also from TFA:
"In more serious news, the TSA appears to be better at preventing sandwiches from boarding planes than real bombs. As part of a training routine, an undercover TSA training agent stuffed a mock bomb in his pants and tried to board a plane. He passed through all security checkpoints with no problem.
"He did have a simulated IED in his pants. They did not find it," an agent said".


It's nice to be safe..!

they stopped the sandwich but missed the fake bomb from the training agent.

I feel oh-so safe right now..
 
2013-04-18 04:36:08 AM
airport security would be vastly improved if they fired half the TSA agents and didn't hire replacements. Just cut the work stock in half. Boom. Only have time to look at actual cases, and not enough free time for this kind of bullshiat.
 
2013-04-18 05:39:07 AM
I would call this contrived, but there was barely any effort put into it.

Wait, what?  Are you under the impression there's some sort of UPS security force screening/shaking/inspecting all your packages....?
 
2013-04-18 05:55:36 AM
Well, I do feel secure now that if a terrorist actually says to his friend "I want to bring the bomb aboard the flight" right next to a TSA guy, they might have the mental aptitude to catch THAT bomb...
 
2013-04-18 05:55:38 AM
Went on a training trip to Chicago with a Filipino engineer.  On the way back she bought a wiffle ball and bat for her kid at the airport.  We were sitting on the plane at O'Hare and she said, "I hope a terrorist gets on here I'll hit him over the heat with my bat!"  She kept nervously saying this over and over and I was hoping they would cuff her and stuff her, but her being female probably was the only thing that kept her on the plane. She was probably the smartest person I ever met, but she had zero common sense.
