Adam Savage: TSA Scanners Missed My 12" Long Weapon

Adam Savage of Mythbusters carries around a bunch of weird crap, so he’s always careful to check his laptop bag and person to make sure he’s not going to have any of his valuable nonsense confiscated by the TSA. Except one day last May…

The video is posted below but, long story short, he forgot to remove two 12″ long razor blades from his stuff. The TSA inspected the bag and put him through the body scanner, but somehow neglected to find the blades in his bag.

His reaction? “What the f*ck, TSA? You’re going to look at my junk, but miss this? My tiny junk is offended.”
