Ah yes. How I fondly recall the good old days traveling with my cattle prod.

[Fixed] Sitting in the the hotel room on a cornflake waiting for the van to come

I got hauled into the TSA office for carrying a torch lighter. I think I was put on the "keep an eye on this guy" list.

My dad has a knee replacement. Clearing security is a real treat for him. The way they treat him, you'd think he's the only guy in the world running around with an artificial joint. TSA is a joke. Personally, I'd be happy to sacrifice some of my post-9/11 "safety" for a bit more convenience. Ah the old days when it took 15 seconds to get through security. Seriously, does anyone honestly not think that the days of hijacking an airplane with a box cutter are long gone?

Yeah, but just imagine the damage you could do with a snow globe.

Really?  Knitting needles are a-okay?  I wouldn't have thought that.  Guess that means crochet hooks would probably be okay, too?  I don't plan on flying somewhere anytime soon, but that's good to know.  However, I wouldn't be able to bring my knife to cut the yarn, so that could be a bit of a problem.  I suppose a cigar cutter could snip the thread fine, but I'd rather do without than have one of those things with me.  Guess I'd just have to start a pattern that doesn't call for multiple colors or is a mile-a-minute pattern.  Or maybe just bring a few books...

You can bring a small pair of scissors with the rounded ends, I think they are used for cutting babies fingernails.  My wife crochets and brings them with her.

Apparently a Fondue set is a no-no here.

I got pulled up for having one I received as a gift. The tools made me post it to myself!!

Seems hot cheese is considered a dangerous weapon.
