Over at Gadgets and Gear
they're offering a uniquely shaped bottle opener. The 4 1/2" x 2 1/4" brushed stainless steel tool is designed to look like a double-edge safety razor blade. It's cool looking but what popped into my head was this; how do you think the TSA would react to this in a traveler's bag? The agency's list of prohibited items
specifically indicates such a blade as forbidden in carry-on luggage.
But it's not a real razor blade you say. Surely the men and women in the police costumes
can recognize that. Don't be so sure. These are the same people who detained a teenager because she had a gun-shaped pattern sewn on her purse
When traveling I'll stick with my trusty, and obvious, Blue & Gray
keychain bottle opener.

I have full faith in the TSA to do the wrong thing. Hey, it's some kind of trust.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I wonder if their ineptness is just a ruse to lure us into a false sense of complacency.Delete
