I'm sure if they had put you in charge things would have been very different..

Seriously?   I mean, I'd understand if it was Heathrow or Gatwick, but c'mon JFK! You folks know what toothpaste looks like.

While the airport no doubt bristles with security, people can tend to get a little jumpy if they've had a brush with death.  No doubt, though, that mistaking toothpaste for something more dangerous is likely to leave them a little totally crestfallen.   It may result them in losing their coveted security plaque.

Look, I'm just worried about plaque buildup in certain areas. Lighten up, people.

I blame fluoride.

Guys, it was tube of toothpaste with duct tape wrapped around it.
Nothing can escape duct tape, not even explosives.
Woah, wait a minute, what if sprayed the explosion with WD-40?  OH GOD, what have I done?  Nothing is safe now.

It's because the Cavity Creeps were about to board a flight.

You have been reported to the Department of Homeland Security.  Have a nice day!

I will be going on a business related trip that involves air travel next week.  Will I be allowed to bring anything other than the clothes on my back?

Don't joke, that stuff can be dangerous.

Pretty soon the only way we'll be able to get on a flight is naked but with a sock on our cocks.

Sure. but make sure you put the nice stuff on the top in your suitcase, that way they don't have to dig around too much to swipe it.

ENJOY YOUR NEW ROUND OF FEAR!


Let's face it, we're going to get regular installments of fear until we give up everything that makes America great. The Bush administration figured out that a significant percentage of the population would give up lots of freedom in return for manufactured security, and the Obama administration's continuing to run with that. If you're afraid, you're malleable. You'll cheer on the revocation of what we used to call "inalienable rights" from American citizens. You'll wave at the nice policemen in their new military gear and heavy weapons, even as they point them at you, because you'll feel safer. You'll clap as your politicians ignore you and instead give the best government money can buy to the rich people that paid for the election of those politicians, because that's the new American Dream.

Another argument for naked flights. Combine this with weighing people to determine the ticket price, and you will have the start of Beautiful Naked People Airlines (BNPA).

Clothing is no longer allowed as it can be used to conceal dangerous  cosmetics and personal hygiene items.

A brush with disaster.
 
2013-04-22 01:14:52 PM
Last time I came in on an international flight through Charlotte, TSA opened my checked bag and squeezed out all my toothpaste, and left one of "we've been here" cards.  That was the only thing they touched.
 
2013-04-22 01:15:25 PM
In related news, now is your chance to comment on the TSA scanning technology.

It's at www.regulations.gov - case code TSA-2013-0004 - good luck, citizens.

If this isn't the ultimate symbol of how the terrorist have well and truly defeated us, then.....I don't know what else would be.  Maybe mandatory cavity searches before boarding any form of transportation.  They didn't want to just scare us, they wanted to completely alter our way of life, and they succeeded.  So fark them for doing it, and fark us for letting them get away with it.  Rather than pulling up our pants and getting on with life, we've become a country of scared pussies, flinching every time a car backfires somewhere, letting strangers grope us at the airport, and allowing the federal government to run rough-shod over our liberties because they deem it necessary.

So an entire terminal getting evacuated over a tube of farking toothpaste makes perfect goddamn sense in this new America.

As long as you don't have duct tape wrapped around something that shouldn't have it in the first place, you'll be fine.

This.

CSB time.

In 2002 I worked for a hotel in NYC.

One day, a security guy walked up on a piece of pipe, covered with duct tape on one end, and with end caps on it.

Kinda looked like a pipe bomb.  So, they called the bomb squad, evacuated part of the hotel, and they sent in the bomb robot.  They x-rayed the pipe, it was filled with nuts and bolts.  So they removed it, and blew it up somewhere, it was inert.

3 days later, one of the engineering guys fessed up, that it was his "Hammer" he had made.  Apparently, the regular hammers were "too heavy" for him, so he took a length of pipe, filled it with nuts and bolts for weight, capped it, and put duct tape on it as a grip.
