So, I'm taking a flight tomorrow morning and I decide to check out the TSA's list of things that one cannot take in one's carryon luggage.
Which inspired the following brief IM conversation:
mrsveteran: I am pissed that I cannot take my tear gas and ice axe on the plane with me.
mrsveteran: Also, my meat cleaver.
mrsveteran: WTF am I going to do without my meat cleaver?
sushirob: those cruel bastards
mrsveteran: WTF? And no cricket bats or hockey sticks???
mrsveteran: NO SPEAR GUNS???
mrsveteran: What is this, Communist Russia??
sushirob: what if you come against sharks with frickin' lasers on their head?
mrsveteran: No shit.
mrsveteran: Not even a measly chainsaw, for fuck's sake.
Yup, sorry, that's all I've got. Been ill, then my Dad was ill, then me again, and between doctors and work and hospitals and what-have-you, I have not had time to blog Teh Funnay(tm).
Or even Teh Not-So-Funnay(tm).
But I'll be back, dammit! I will!
We now return you to your regularly scheduled friends list, already in progress.
Apparently a Bat'leth is ok though, since it's neither a sword nor a knife.

Hm... still lots of potential, though. I think you could get creative with a cigar cutter and nail clippers. Corkscrew! Ooh, Transformers are ok! And damn, a 7" screwdriver. I wonder how they feel about a rapid badger.

What, they won't let you take Jesus on either? A full-sized one would be tough. Maybe instead, bring a mini bodybuilder: http://tinyurl.com/2q2c7a

not yet communist russia
it's not communist russia just yet, but that mccain has a way with words. maybe mccain will get elected and wont even need an inauguration, just a regulation WWF tagteam slap, and the train rolls on. what is it about some people, that five years isnt enuff time to beat some sense into them? no, but that's not really the issue. please understand that the TSA has to draw the line somewhere when it comes to potentially threatening objects. these objects could severely frighten william shatner ever since that one really dreadful flight. please be sympathetic. the man deserves his tranquility. one time when i took him cruising for asian chicks in the badlands of mount meru, he got goosed by a stray yo-yo and nearly caused a wicked domino effect knitting-needle startling eyeball pop fiasco among these nice finnish grandmothers whose quilting wasnt really anywhere near finnished, ironically. but we convinced wolf blitzer that the implementation of phillipine weapons wasnt necessarily a good modus for establishing introductions. naturally, we didnt even bother exploring his magic pants grab bag and he was probbly up to something anyway. but you'll know we've arrived there when you see some of this crap going on:
Q: what's a thousand feet long and eats potatoes?
A: russians lined up to buy meat
see, so it's not yet commu-
