The 2 Stoners who made this movie had a reason for their paranoia for once.
"It said undercover investigators posing as passengers were able to smuggle weapons or other dangerous items through security every second time they tried to do so."
'Real terrorists wouldn't get a second try.
No, they'll send 6 terrorists an 3 will get through.
And remember, the security inspectors are not allowed to actually _hide_ the stuff, they must place a gun or a handgrenade -as is- in the luggage.
They cannot disassemble the gun and hide it in a bunch of jewely or use especially crafted zipguns that look like something else or any other method that a terrorist would use.
After all, the personnel only ever sees handguns in the luggage when the security inspectors do a test.
This is not America where every second grandma has a gun in their purse that they can forget to take out.

"Some listeners think that vinyl reproduces sound better than digital,"

I guess the Spanish king sponsors this effort?
"I mean, who would even notice."
The hackers will ruin the weather and make it rain all the time, obviously.
They'll stop only after the payment of a ransom.
So it's the fight between:
A. Nervous governments caught short on some cold winter's night with much too much wind so that powerlines are flying over the country but high energy prices.
B. Nervous governments are resisting, afraid of being caught short on some cold winter's night with little wind and very low energy prices.
I prefer the latter.
"...how can a publicly traded company possibly justify such investments to stockholders?"
Why? It's not as if they would buy a naval airbase, they're just renting one.
Stephen Hawking told us there is no god, not even a particle.
