know, a 65 year old natural born citizen of the country is probably faking a pacemaker owner's card thing and planting explosives all over her body
to trash a plane
I suppose if you wanted to take control of a flight with nailclippers, find an obsessive-compulsive crew, go into the cockpit, and clip your
fingernails and leave them laying around. While the crew is crawling on the floor looking for nail particles, take the flight controls!
LMAO. It probably might work! Hijacking my nail pairings!
You think electronics will give you problems going through security, try going through a metal detector with 9 piericings. The bells go off, I was
pulled aside, and had to point to the various metal protrusions all over my body, plus, the odd look from security, who passed the wand over my tits
and crotch expecting to find piericing in those places, plus having to take off my shoes, then my socks, then remove my toe rings......I didnt know
silver will set off metal detectors! I remeber pre 9/11 the metal detectors didnt even go off for my body Jewlery, let alone silver, yet I guess they
have more sensitive ones.... good thing I dont have fillings! I hated the stupid looks from people as I have to lift my shirt and show them that I do
indeed have a belly ring, and no, I do not have gential or nipples rings, stop putting the wand there, its giving me the willies!
Of course, nothign was as bad as the 4 hours I spent in UK customs getting interrogated for my reasons for coming to the country. The only things I
took along were my passport, clothing and basic toiletries (minus nail clippers and other metal objects) and a box of prophylactics. I figured this
would pretty much state my reasons for comming (to visit my boyfriend) but obviously not.
