I wonder if they'd notice a large bottle of marmite with a detonator in it - a mobile phone battery would set off the detonator with no trouble.

I know somebody who caused a panic because they had two large slabs of marzipan in their bag.

When they x-rayed my guitar case, they got upset about: my curly guitar lead, the internal pickup lead which looked like a big fishook, and the electronic tuner.

I missed this thread over the summer because I was away camping for a month...

Once, flying from Logan to Florida (yes, THAT Logan airport), I had a four-inch Bowie knife in my carry-on. Two security guys had a pissing contest over what to do, I stayed mum. One w asnted to confiscate it, one just wanted to wrap it in duct tape and put it at the bottom of my bag and tape my bag shut. The tape won in the end. I could not even bring a book of matches through Logan security recently. They have spent a lot of money recently on international flag banners and new video monitors that unspool endless advice at the security checkpoint ("please remove your shows, please place laptops in the grey bins only"), which is ignored by everyone and ends up saving no time. At least they have finally gotten rid of   the jack-booted thugs with machine guns patrolling the place after 9-11.

re:   henna; I am curious; was this confisacted by customs   officials in the US? Because I got some in England that nearly was too. I got it at an open air market, it was wrapped in clear plastic, as opposed to the sealed packages one gets at the body Shop or Lush. One official thought it was some odd plant substance, but the other understood what henna was once I explained and said it was all right.

I just wish there wasn't a law against bringing back English bacon...but no meat or dairy products are allowed.

What a friend we have in cheeses
Chedder munster and Guryere
But what a hassle tis to carry
past security at US Air.

O what peace we often forfeit
O what needless pain we bear
All because we carried cheeses
on board a flight of US Air.

We were fondled and then X-rayed
Because of troubles in the air
The screener had trememdous courage
to plunge their hands in underwear.

Did we seem a fiend unfairhful
who would bomb without a care
Jesus is our cheese a weakness
in security at US Air.


Are we weak from ol bin Laden
cumbered with a load of care.
The guards ran to seek some refuge
from tin wrapped cheese we had to share.


Do the guards despise, forsake you?
at air ports everywhere
They are armed and may likely shoot you
if they find some cheese in there.


By the time this made the papers
the head line was in gross error.
Capture, praise and endless worship
for the guards at US Air.

I'd have thought that it'd be quite possible to make a blend of Semtex and cheese that would still be explosive, but would still have all the appearance of cheese...

The thing to remember though, is never ever make any kind of jokey remarks about any of the explosive potential contents of your baggage when you are going through custioms or security. People have been faced with really hefty jail sentences for that kind of thing.

It might be worse. Someone once ordered live lobsters for a British Army officers mess' in Northern Ireland. The delivery driver went to the kitchen door. Nobody answered when he knocked, so he left the parcel on the doorstep, with a note. Meanwhile, the angry lobsters were clicking their claws as they tried to get out and back to see. The first cook to see the parcel heard the clicking, and didn't care to read the note; he just alerted the entire camp that there was an IRA bomb by the officers' mess.

So, a Wheelbarrow [a remote-controlled tracked vehicle, which holds lots of tools for bomb disposal at a safe distance] was deployed; it "disrupted" the parcel with a "controlled explosion". Translation; the unfortunate crustaceans were instantly reduced to sandwich spread.

About 8 years ago our clogging team went to France (from the UK to put it in perspective) and on our way back stocked up the boot (trunk) of the car with garlic and local soft cheeses and other irrelevant souvenirs - to say nothing of sweaty socks and grubby costumes.

OK so far, but this is a very very hot weekend, a long car journey and a long ferry trip...

Guess who got stopped for a check at the customs on entry? Except that the officer who asked to see in the back of the car lifted the lid about 2 inches - and shut it again in a hurry! No further checks for contraband (not that there was any) but I have to say the cheese nearly made its own way home!

LadyJean.......Ever since my bypass in '97 I have been tripping metal detectors (sternum stapled together). Then the addition of a St. Jude's mitral valve added a bit more metal inside with the bonus of the fact that under the right conditions you can hear the thing make a ticking noise as it opens and closes. Although the metal detectors are generally tripped, so far no one has noticed my chest is also ticking. With these days of suicide bombers I do get a bit nervous so I carry my St. Jude's registration card and a letter from my Doctor.

And to be completely pedantic.......It's "Cincinnati" and you are far from alone in the doubling of letters mistake. Also the airport is in Erlanger, not Florence (as if it matters a ratshit).

On our first trip to the states (pre 9/11) we had all manner of foodstuffs in the luggage. I was a little worried when I saw the list of restricted items (including cheese!) some of which were in the cases.

The very very nice man at Atlanta said 'English eh? First trip to the US?'

'Yes' replies I.

'Anything to declare?' he asks. Before I can reply he grins 'Just say tea and biscuits. It's what everyone brings.'

'OK', I say. 'tea and biscuits.'

I can't see why finding a terrorist who can look like a paunchy businessman would be a particular problem.

If you aren't rational within the area what yiou are trying to do, you couldn't be very effective as a terrorist. Alright, what you are doing might be raving lunacy, but that's another matter. The same applies on a much larger scale for the people who operate nuclear missile systems, they're engaged in something conpletely insane, but they have to be rational while they are doing it.

All this is reason why I will not fly...

I use a motorized wheelchair, and I just know, with its battery and wires and motor, that it would be taken apart and inspected by personel who don't know the first thing about wheelchairs.   If / when they can't put it together again, I lose all my independence until I can get it fixed or replaced -- wouldn't even be able to go from side of the room to the other without help...

I have greater fear of the secrurity people than I do of the terrorists, frankly.

Which is why I've decided that all my traveling will be over Earth's surface from now on -- at least, that way, I have a reasonable expectation of having my chair in my posession for the whole journey.

... So, do cruise ships still go across the oceans, or are they just for trips along coasts, to the tropical islands?

My cousin lives in Burlington, Kentucky. When I visit, I fly to the Cincinnatti airport, which is just up the road, in Florence Kentucky. (Cinncinnatti is in Ohio, as some mudders may not know.) Since 9/11 my chief problem has been the 9 screws that hold my left arm together. (I had a collision with a basement floor some years ago.) I beep metal detectors. I check my luggage, with my knitting inside, at the gate. Until now, all they've done is asked if I've had it out of my sight, or if anyone gave me anything to carry onto the plane.
Now, they x ray the thing, and inspect my cheese.
I don't beep metal detectors anymore, though.
Those cheese puns smelled worse than limburger. I appreciated them greatly. "Pack your bags Caerphilly!"

ummmm...I suppose it would be handy to find someone like that willing to do the 'job'...but it is hardly likely. And 'rational terrorist' is rather a category error, if I may say so,(though I see your point).

"...everyone flying on airlines or charter planes should have to hand in everything they've got..." etc...sure, then the terrorists will shrug and blow up a train or a bus (and probably on a bridge or in a tunnel). I suspect they are just as happy to be making us spend these hundreds of millions of $$$ searching ladies for knitting needles while they plan an attack on a power plant or reservoir.

You could combine a cheese with a pretty good biological weapon, if you had the mind to.

"...some little old lady and a paunchy businessman..." That is exactly the way any rational terrorist would be likely to dress, surely, instead of "swarthy young men with accents"?

I've suggested that everyone flying on airlines or charter planes should have to hand in everything they've got, and everything they are wearing. Then travel wearing overalls or pyjamas issueed on the spot by the airline, and piuck up their stuff at the other end. If one result was to cut down the number of people who found it necessary to travel, all the better.

Yes, a colleague & I were returning home from a conference a few months ago, and had already had the return trip from hell--flight cancelled, terrible weather, had to drive 2 hours to another airport unless we wanted to sat another day (we didn't!), blah, blah, blah.
SO---after finally arriving at our hotel (for which we were vexed enough to make the airline give us a voucher)at 12.30am, and a 3am wake-up call, we were the "randomly selected" passengers given the privilege of having our undergarments scanned, luggage (again--dirty laundry!) rifled through, gifts for our kids inspected, fee inspected, et al. At which point we were so exhausted that we just started laughing hysterically because things had gone so badly already that we really weren't even surprised...we just wondered what might be next!

A lady I know was waiting to board a plane and as she is a quilter, had a small sewing case with her containing 2 or 3 needles, thread, etc. It was going to be confiscated. She then pointed out men who were waiting to board the same plane who had sharp pointed pins on their belt buckles and asked that the belts be confiscated if her sewing case was; also a lady wearing a brooch pinned to her lapel. After some hasty mumbling among themselves the guards waved her on - WITH her sewing case.

To protect it he'd wrapped it in his dirty laundry.... bearing in mind, this was the going home journey..... and the case had been sitting in the sun for a long time....

The zips were unfastened, the lid flipped open. The guard took a step backwards muttering words that you'll never find in any Spanish or French dictionary and waved him through without further charge.

A friend of mine was doing some computer contract work in the Netherlands. A (British) friend of his who was already over there, asked him to bring some confectionary she was very fond of but could not obtain in the Netherlands, with him; namely, Cadbury's Cream Eggs.

He also put his Walkman in the case.

So, as he goes through the X-ray machines at the ferry terminal in the Hoek van Holland (sp), his suitcase contains a small box with circuitry, and 12 oval opaque objects, about the size of small hand-grenades (Cream Eggs are wrapped in foil).

It was all sorted out in the end, though he had to eat one of the Eggs to prove it was innocuous. This apparently revolted the Dutch customs guys, even though they are supposed to remain unmoved at what people- and drug-mugglers can do.
