I went to NY for a week with my family in 1998. As I was just starting my engineering degree I took the opportunity to get a HP 48G calculator which at the time was much cheaper in the US.

I remember having to explain in broken english to the security guard (pre-TSA) that this was a working calculator and that it could do math. RPN here didn't help at all, but eventually she let me go.

This happened shortly after Swissair 111.
