Oh wow, not again, those dang terrorists again trying every possible way to bring explosives on the plane. A shoe, a nail polish bottle, trying to use nail clippers as a stabbing weapon, etc.
Did anybody watch any drug cartel related movies? There are only about a hundred thousand of them set for every decade.
So the idea of MULES smuggling drugs INSIDE their bodily CAVITIES must be a big news to everybody.
Sure, we're all supposed to believe that a MacGyver style liquid mix of peroxide, acetone and other house hold chemicals will produce an explosion larger then a couple of pounds of Semtex stuffed up the rear end of some shahid.
So what's next? Industry wide cavity searches?
"Excuse me mam, you're looking rather suspicious with that head dress you got there, I'm required to examine your vaginal cavity for possible explosives..."
"Sir, yes you in a turban, please come here immediately, assume the position right by this machine, bend over and submit to an anal exploration executed with this mission specific probe by Ratheon industries."
Liquids, Ipods, please.

What about having everyone that flies trussed up in one of those hannibal lechter suits. Then we could be attached to trollies (headphones included) that get inserted straight into the plane .They could have food, liquid and waste tubes built in. The food and liquid comes from a secure central server and the the waste tubes are blast proof. There, problem solved. [/pithyness]

Fahrenheit 911 showed where they actually were allowing people to take matches and a lighter on board the planes at one time, I wonder if they still do this?

Obviously the solution is to inject everyone BA Baraccus style once they check in. Welcome to Coma Airlines.

The shoe bomber was American if I recall correctly so I don't think they are just allowing certain people to have certain things, I think it would apply to all.
Supposedly now, an explosive can be made with some kind of aluminum that you just cut to the shape of the shoe. It goes undetected by the xray machine. So now, they will be analyzing the inside of the shoe more closely.

Well, they may as well have fun on the job.
BTW, who gets to keep all the stuff the airport removes from people??? Airport personnel??? Just curious....
I know when i worked at Delta and Eastern airlines, they kept stuff for a certain amount of time and if unclaimed, lost and found would have a day when you could go in and get what you wanted. hm........ I'm not talking suitcases, i'm talking items found at the terminals.
