Not anymore! As for airport security - I would rather have ten retired out of shape cops then 30 twenty-something weight lifters watching the airport. Its security, not defense. There's a difference.
I don't believe I said they were retired law enforcement, If they had been that, this thread would have never been posted. And I was 40 when I did this dumpster toss, 53 now and still can, although I have never lifted weights. I work instead. Need some wood split?
BTW sorry to hear about your shoulder man, hope it gets better.

Did you know that there's a vein on your neck that, if cut, will drain all your blood in minutes? All it takes is for a guy to sneak up from behind and hold a guy at knife-point with a box-cutter. I don't know about you, but those things are damn sharp.
If what the passengers on flight 93 were being truthful, the terrorists did kill someone with their "harmless" box-cutters.
Seriously people. It's still a knife. I mean, honestly, they could have held up the plane with freaking compasses or pens if they really wanted to. Anything sharp can kill.

Umm remove your seat back cushion and rush the one or two guys with a boxcutter. This isn't 3rd grade. Most peoples balls have dropped by this time.
Not saying that this would be an easy decision, but seriously? Box cutters? There are like 10:1 passengers to hijackers. Someone take a knee out or whatever.
