    Permits to breed. Required. NOW!

  2. Flying out of Albuquerque International this past August, I noticed a ruckus as I was putting my recently x-rayed shoes back on after going through TSA screening. There was a family, a woman (the mom, I presume), a teenage boy (probably 16) and a younger girl being escorted to a table for a police officer to do a “bag check” on the boy’s carry on.

    As I was organizing myself and half-watching the show, I noticed the officer pull something out of the boy’s bag: A gun! How delightful! It was a small, completely black gun, looked like the size of a Walther PPK. The kid freaks out. Says he forgot it was in there and its a fake gun, an airsoft gun. The officer looks it over and agreed that yes, its a fake, its a fake (he repeated this several times to concerned TSA screeners, and presumably so everyone else could hear).

    At that point, we had to scurry away to our gate, so I never got to find out what happened to the trio. The stupidity of some people is astonishing… and boy howdy this family didn’t seem like the sharpest tools in the shed, to which my girlfriend replied that she overheard that they were French.

    Understood, from now on I will only fly with authentic hand grenades…

    If the TSA were to end the “war against liquids,” maybe they’d find that kind of shit.
