Remember...

They see you when you;re sleeping...

They know when you're awake...

They will confiscate your cookies...

And anything else they want to take.

Merry Christmas from the TSA!



Peace

They took my friend's jar of peanut butter once...

"Sir, you can't take any liquids over 4oz"

"It's not a liquid! It's food! It goes with my bread that's in there too!"

"I'm sorry sir, it's we can't allow you to take a liquid in this size..."

"It's NOT a liquid! Technically it's an emulsification of oil and solids!"

Needless to say he didn't keep his organic peanut butter, and we were almost late for our flight.

This is one of the reasons why I have never flown on a plane and never plan too! I would never want myself, my fiancé, or my twin daughters to be molested by TSa or whomever. Not to mention my fear of mechanical, or human errors along with threat of a real terrorist... I would rather just drive to wherever I'm going! And so far no I have no intent on going over sees so my philosophy works great and me or my family have never been molested! Merry Christmas

Good thing I don't fly anymore as I would be labeled a WMD. I used to eat a big bowl of KimChi prior to flying. The first couple of hours were consumed with SBD's and the next by frequent, yet noisy and smelly trips to the Lou.

TMI?

The things I do to myself to keep myself being amused. Just being "That Guy!"

Sorry sir you cannot bring your leatherman multi tool on board , if you require any sharp metal objects during flight they will be supplied with the meal and the inflight entertainment includes reruns of macgyver. What about my cigarette lighter and lithium ion powered laptop?

No problem sir .

You can bring a small jar of foot balm. But when they ask you what is in the container I highly recommend calling it something else.

They tried to take my friend's peanut butter once. She had the little "to go" packs from Jiff. They went on the same bit about how it was too much of a liquid, and she pretty much said BS, these are 3 oz each. It was really funny because she's a really small, quiet person. Magically, she got it through. Good thing, too, because the food on our 15 hour flight wasn't that amazing.

I used to be really against the TSA pat-downs, but then I went to Asia, and I was pretty much groped before all of my flights. On my way back home, while passing through Dubai, I kept setting off the metal detector. So they send me to the private pat-down room, and the lady pretty much put her hand down my bra, in between my breasts. Now the TSA doesn't seem so bad. That doesn't make it right, but I guess I just have a different perspective now that I've seen what security in other parts of the world is like.

Sorry I'm not up on the issues of flying except the groping pat downs...
but can you carry pre-made P&J sandwiches? I hate all these bloody rules
some of it is to make you buy their crappy food & water to say the least
while on board just to squeeze every penny out of people.

I haven't flown since 2007...sucks when you need to go from one coast
to the other as driving due to time is no option.

Wonder how they handle people with a service dog? Do they get groped more
or less often? Guess I better look into that....

Cheers

I recently flew, when driving to the airport I was honestly afraid I would be on the no fly list for some posts I've made on various websites. In the end they went through my suitcase, threw out several things, then put me through 2 pat downs. Since I wasn't taken aside into a back room I have to assume this was just perfectly normal behavior.

Then I saw the special TSA Pre line that's a brand new program. The existence of which proves there's no point at all to their patdowns since anyone wanting to do serious harm will simply pay the $85 and go through the no scan line.
