I just love going on a plane. They search you for all kinds of weapons. But they never get the truly dangerous stuff like No. 2 pencils, pens, toothbrushes etc. etc. After all, in prison they turn toothbrushes, razors, all kinds of stuff into weapons. And now this Article in the Washington Post says that the scientists are working on a new way to solve the problem. Wonderful. Next thing we’ll have to buy this new stuff just so we can fly. Pfui!
Moral of the story: anything can be a weapon if you are determined to use it as one. Even a bar of soap in a sock or a tie or a handful of quarters. I could go on but why bother?
