On the return trip home from Thanksgiving, the TSA decided to confiscate a micro tool kit used most often to disassemble laptops;it was no great loss, but it had made several trips across the country before it did not, they changed the script. The real screw up was on my part, take off was at 6:00AM, boarding at 5:40AM. I had risen at 3:30AM to make it to the airport with time too spare. After standing in line for ~40min I get up to the unload you pockets,shoes and belt off, and laptop in the bin. As I slid my hand into my left pant pocket I felt the cool surface of my trusty Buck 110, did I mention my Grandfather gave me the knife 30 years ago. FUCK!!! is what I am thinking. No way will it get through, but what the hell. I laid it down in between my shoes. I thought that perhaps I might get lucky and the TSA agent might miss it... It happens right? Well to say the least it did not work. Now at this point it is 5:25AM, the plane boards in 00:15 minutes. It would be physically impossible to navigate security again and make the flight. So I had to toss a knife I never intended to carry with me and I gave a damn about the knife. The solution is simple, http://wh.gov/DDz , and there is zero chance of getting rid of the TSA or HSA, so maybe we can force them to adapt the theater to us plebes a little bit.
