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.

I've always wondered what would happen if a box was mailed marked 'CONTAINS ANTHRAX', and all that was in the box was a CD by the band of that name.

It has probably been done, but I'm not stupid enough to try it as an experiment, even if it hasn't.

and write on a box of clothes, "contains CHILD PORNOGRAPHY"

my scenario had a factual label describing the totally legal contents of the a box, making it ironic, so like WTF is the deal with your proposal?

What is it going to take for people to wake up and realize that kind of fear and suspicion is exactly what Osama wanted?

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.

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.

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.
