Items confiscated at the airport by the NTSA are being sold on eBay.

I saw nail clippers in there...the small ones.

They are confiscating nailclippers?

WTF, as opposed to what...an ink pen which is more of a weapon than
nail clippers.

Shhh, the NTSA might see this message and start confiscating everyone's Cross and Montblanc pens.

Hey!! I had an exact same swiss card thing there in the pic! I carry one of those everywhere I go (theyre so handy!) But in a recent trip the airport security guards took it away from me
They should really return these things to their owners!!!

I can understand them confinscating the knives and pointy things, but, what's up with the purple sombreo???

It's loud, and distracting, it might keep the pilots from doing their job ya know, cause they'd all want to try it on, then dance around it.




Olelay!

I wish they would have just banned shoebombs instead, and not lighters... I'm a smoker.

I declared a large knife at the check-in of a Canadian airport and the knife was bagged and sealed. When I arrived in Victoria, B.C. I claimed my knife at the baggage claim office right after my bag came down the chute. No problem..... This stuff can be checked, and we'll all be a bit safer when we fly.

Yeah, but at the current price, it's better to go ahead and carry 50 pounds of finger nail clippers and distract them from the dreaded "Purple Sombrero de muerte"!

I leave all my pointy/flashy/stinky/boomy things at home if I have to fly.

Hence..I don't fly since they started this fiasco. Any terrorist worth his salt can kill you with his thumbs a lot easier than if he tried to use a pair of tweezers or toe nail clippers.

For some reason, when I was younger, I tried to bring a pair of broken handcuffs home with me from a trip. They confiscated them....broken handcuffs...I mean what the hell am I going to do with a pair of broken handcuffs? Oh well, security served as my personal janitor that day.


Which gives me an idea. I am going to start putting my trash in their bins.

On my very first trip to Spain, during my teens, I brought back a 10" Replica Nazi Dagger. no questions.

And in response to the original question "Where do all the lighters go?"

If it wasn't the NTSA, it was probably my mate Rod, who has a habit of pocketing them wherever he goes.

In what category do you put the sombreo?

I lost two of 'em on my recent vacation.

What can ya do. I feel bad for anyone who had a colibri. Well, maybe in that case you could mail it to yourself or something.

I intend to open a stand right outside the baggage claim area in Arrivals to sell lighters. The sight of some of these heavily addicted smokers coming off 8 hour flights without a lighter is simply screaming "please profit off me."

All's fair in NYC. They sell Ice Cream at the US Open for $7 when it's real hot.

I remember a joke from Jay Leno on nail clippers...During one of those elevated alerts (orange?, magenta?)

The hijacker walks up to the cockpit with a nail clipper in hand and says " Fly the plane to Damascus, else I will cut off your NAILS"

oooo...scary
