fanbladesaresharp: Harry Freakstorm: If you really want some fun, set off a flour bomb in a garbage can in the mall. Then walk up in a haz-mat suit with clicking Geiger counter and say "Jebus! These people are screwed!"

And what is your unnoticed exit plan for these shenannigans? You aren't getting far. Even on Halloween.

You think to far ahead. Where is the fun in that?

ArthGuinness: Pocket Ninja: Also remember that, no matter how long it's been since you've seen him and how surprised you are to discover that he's sitting just a few rows behind you, you should never stand up on an airplane mid-flight and yell hi to your buddy Jack.

I am *so* going to buy a plane ticket for a friend named Jack, just so I can do this. Anybody have advice on what to yell before I get tased?

well, there's always the classic "don't taze me, bro"..

So, if he had just handed the lunchbox to the guard and said, "This isn't mine. I just found it." the guard would have been unconcerned? The fact that the guy cracked a joke made the guard paranoid that there was really a bomb in the lunchbox? Was this guard Frank Burns by any chance?

eddyatwork: Things like this are why if I saw an unattended briefcase I'd just keep my mouth shut and walk away.

Same here. I don't want to be the messenger, especially since the TSA is security theater.

One thing that cracks me up every time I see it is that list of questions you're supposed to ask someone phoning in a bomb threat, such as:

* When is the bomb going to explode?
* What does it look like?
* Where is the bomb located?
* What kind of device is it?

Like some wacko threatening to blow up the airport is really going to give sensible answers to these questions.

You forgot

* What is your name ?
