vudukungfu: lennavan: I'm pretty sure flying isn't in the constitution.

neither was email or testing.
Or regular mail.
Or telephones.


Wait, are you against the US Postal Service Inspection Service?

lennavan: vudukungfu: lennavan: I'm not afraid of box cutters.

Apparently, if you aren't afraid, you're un-American.

I think you missed the point of my comment.  I'm not afraid of box cutters, yet they were used in 9/11.  Just because you're not afraid of something or can't imagine a way for it to be used in a dangerous manner doesn't mean it's not possible.

People seem to think flying is some inherent right.  It's not, it's a privilege.  No one is forcing you to fly, you can drive yourself or take a boat or something.


You seem to think the TSA does not claim the authority to "enhance security" for these and all other forms of transportation. They're generally not DOING it, but only because of the constraints of their budget.

Flail

/If gun nuts can get pedantic about weapon identification, so can I.


The problem of course is, that unlike guns which have real names and numbers assigned to them by their makers, ancient weapons had colloquial names and non-standard manufacture, so all designations and rigid nomenclature are strictly after the fact, and often crude translations from other languages because an item looked like something English already had a word for.

A gladius looks nothing like a Katana or an Epee, but in English they are all correctly called "swords"

Similarly these can all be correctly called flails:

and these all count as maces , just to name a few:

vudukungfu: It's like being Jewish and being forced to pass under the Arch of Titus.


You don't have to be Jewish to know that guy's a douche.

I'll tell you what, if the TSA stops to check my bag next time I walk to work, I will admit you were right and apologize.

mbillips:Fark you, Huffpo troll. Those agents are there to keep planes from being hijacked. Not a single one of those confiscated items was taken from a would be hijacker, and no one would have ever known those items were on the plane if they hadn't been found.

Citation needed.  How do you know none of the guns or other weapons were taken from people intending to hijack the plane (or kill the guy snoring next to them, or whatever)?

I'm not afraid of a killer's tools, only their will to kill.  A killer doesn't need that stuff to take a life.  This is why the TSA is useless; they're focused on solving the wrong problem.
