Should I be worried about the baggage retrieval system they've got at Heathrow?

That depends, were you intending on flying into Heathrow with hold baggage? If not, then your concerns seem moot.

Only if you use Terminal 5 but they don't so much tend to lose it as accumulate it in a big pile gathering dust

Access to the area where you the baggage machine is location can be gained through the door marked "No Entry!" with the biohazard signs on it, after that it's your first left, second right, down two flights of stairs and enter the room marked "Danger! Radiation!" but not the one that has the actual radiation warning symbol on IT!!!  That one has a tiger behind it.

I hate checking through bags and only do it as a last resort. We had caught a whole bunch of fish, froze it, and packed it for our flight home. We verified with TSA beforehand and they said as long as it was frozen we could carry it on. We get there, local TSA agents and supervisor were farktards and wouldn't let us carry through. We had one bag checked, so we had to pay for second one and put the fish in with our carry on.

Terrible flights all day. Delays every single stop. No cancelled flights though so we get home, wait at baggage claim, and of course our bags aren't there. We check with the completely rude and uncaring reps at the counter. No our bags weren't there, yes they would come in on the next flight, be back in an hour, yada. Go back an hour later and the flight was delayed 45 min. (even though I called 5 min. before leaving the house and everything was on schedule). Flight comes in, no bags. I tell them again we NEED the carry on bag at least because of the perishable items. They told me it would be on the next flight which would be noon the next day. I asked if there was any other flight coming in and they said no.

The next day I get a call at 6 a.m. saying to come get our bags. I told the agent before said the next flight came in at noon and the agent said "Well that is true ma'am, but your bags arrived on the 10 p.m flight" THE FLIGHT I WAS THERE FOR! I've never been so pissed off at the general farktardedness of the airport system in my life. From TSA to gate agent they were all complete arseholes.

Luckily it was below freezing and they left the bags in the warehouse, so all the fish was still frozen solid. The ONLY good thing to happen on that flight.

I can't remember exactly where it was, but somewhere in Heathrow T1, in the low numbered gates area, is a door marked "DANGER OF DEATH." No symbols, no explanation, just death.

Luggage manipulation is going automated. Throwers will be a thing of the past soon enough.

So not only are they going to charge me for checking in, carrying on, eating, drinking, bringing luggage they're going to make me buy a smart phone and service?

Not as long as the 737 is the backbone of a lot of airlines, I don't know the reason but those baggage holders don't fit so all luggage must be put in by hand.
