  •   tcolla @pazzalee yeah, I don't know anything except for what people complain about on here... Seems like they put time, effort, and cash into something for nothing... Of course security is paramount... But if you're not a security risk (which I know I'm not or they wouldn't let me [sometimes] check a gun & ammo at the counter when I fly) and you pay extra for the same security headache, err I'd ask for my money back and a little extra for my time : ) ...--- aahhh UPDATE -- as I'm just reading a more recent comment, I have to apologize- I think I'm confusing the global entry precheck with the Tsa domestic precheck.... The customs precheck seems to guarantee "entitlement" for your cash... My bad... That's the check I meant to reference... It costs almost as much as a passport and Tsa doesn't seem to be doing a good job at distinguishing the difference... 10h

  •   mengquist These things are stupid expensive, super safe and inert!!!!! TSA is stupid for not allowing it! There is NO explosive in an airbag! Do your homework TSA!!!!! 2d
  •   z3german @mengquist airbags are incredibly dangerous if not handled properly. If they deploy accidentally they can easily break fingers. In mechanic classes they have a whole section on safely handling airbags. It's not about the explosive, it's about the force they can achieve in a tenth of a second 2d

tsa #TSAGoodCatch - This inert grenade was discovered in a carry-on bag at the #Indianapolis (#IND) International Airport. TSA officers don’t know items such as these are inert until explosives detection professionals, along with law enforcement, remove the item from the X-ray tunnel and resolve the alarm. This most likely will cause a closure of our checkpoint and lead to missed and delayed flights. Grenades, inert or otherwise, are prohibited from both carry-on and checked bags. 3d

  •   elmalditoperro Murica comments @diana_dm 6d
  •   temmers_88 For everyone who says "we are in America speak English!" How do you think tourists and there money get to your lovely towns and state? They fly in and out like you do when you travel over seas. It's not like I learn Mandarin when I go to visit China or Dutch when I go to the Netherlands. It's a way to make travel easier for those that need it and leave them with a positive view before they return home. 5d

He was sexy. ;) btw psa: i'm catholic and catholic women can wear religious headcoverings too and the tsa can't make us take them off. I was given a partial strip search in ELM for refusing to uncover my head. Love love bilingual pros! I speak french! <333 4d

  •   stevefeinstein Is it legal to transport aboard an aircraft or not? How would one most responsibly inform the TSA snd airline that they want to? 6d
  •   yrouel86 There should be a mail service attached to the checkpoints so people could at least have the option to mail their legal items instead of losing them, for a price obvously I had few items rejected (not as dramatic as this one) but fortunately I could give them to my parents 2d
  •   yrouel86 BTW what's the fate of the seized legal items, auction perhaps? 2d
  •   fcadcock C4 can be tested easily. Cut off a slice and try to burn it. It will NOT explode even if you shoot it, so it's a safe test. 2d
