  • Gas..phwoar
  • My wife.
  • i have gotten a hunting knife through security. i got it for my birthday when i went to yellow stone. my parents said, pick something out for your birthday and to their surprise i picked out this knife. i have taken it with me from spain and back a couple of times..
  • a razor blade.
  • A hair sheers. What the heck! I didn't even know it was there until I reached my destination... but scary that it made it through and my 2 year old couldn't bring his water! (that was a few months post 9/11)
  • A swiss utility army knife. I forgot that I had it on me for work.
  • A rifle bullet!!! In November of 2006 he passed through O'Hare and Ft Lauderdale airports. After we arrived at our fishing cabin and were unpacking, I heard a "ut-oh" come from the other room. Apparently in the crease of his backpack a 22 cal bullet had hid since he occasionally uses a rifle for work. It really gives you peace of mind knowing our technology picks up all this stuff.
  • Within two months after 9/11 I had to fly through Boston-Logan airport. I completely forgot that I kept a small Swiss Army knife on my keychain. I placed it in little plastic bowl with a couple other items and it went right through. On a later flight, my carry-on was searched and I was told my nail clippers had to be confiscated. I was surprised; how does one clip somebody to death? However, the female TSA agent let me keep the 3-inch pointed metal nail file sitting next to the clippers in my manicure set.
  • Myself! Other than that, a Hideaway knife in my wallet.
  • I had a really small firecracker in my coat pocket.
  • I don't fly too much, unless I'm fishing
  • I haven't taken anything dangerous, but I always get pulled up for something...like the load of metal that turned out to be 5kg of toy cars (boy did they laugh), a balloon pump that they thought might be a bomb, (that got a laugh too), small bottles of cough medicine (a donation they thought might have been drugs)...yes I work with orphanages in Bali.
  • My mother-in-law. I wish they had confiscated her.
  • a teriibly dangerous pair of nailclippers
  • Only afterwards did i realize that this was a very stupid thing to do,but years back i was getting ready to leave by plane and i had a big can of protien powder for weight-lifing.the can was so bulky that i emptied out the powder into a large clear baggie ,so that it would take up less space.i threw the bag into my suitcase and went through airport customs not thinking anything of it.it was only days later that i fully realized that if they had seen that they would have been sure it was herion or some other drug.
  • I was in a BIG rush to get to the plane (like the plane was leaving in 15 minutes and I was just getting to security...long story) and quickly patted my pockets to make sure I didn't have anything 'dangerous'. I missed my small (2 inch long) swiss army knife with a recently sharpened blade. I managed to get it through the x-ray...
  • a soccer ball from my brother, tweezers from my mom, lip gloss from me but i had some more hidden in my purse which i wonder how come they didnt see...but the funny thing is that once when i was coming back from my country they stopped me and asked me to get everything out of my purse, i had a writing pen in there which was a gift from my friend from a medical skool. just bcaz it was heavy, they thought there was something in it, first they didnt know how to write on it so they asked me to show them, i did. then they broke it apart to see the inside. i was like wat the hell is going on man, everyone was staring at me, it was so uncomfortable, anyway they told me that i can take it and go on but i asked them to fix the pen for me first then i will go bcaz they broke it...i still have that pen and when ever i see it it makes me laugh!!!
  • I've gotten myself aboard a plane numerous times. That could be dangerous in certain situations lol.
  • My mother got through with a large bag of [metal] nail supplies. Scissors, clips, razors, metal files, all that you can imagine...they didn't even notice.
  • Back when I used to chop pills I would carry razors in my wallet. When I went to the airport I forgot they were in there and I got through all of my stops miami included and they are jerks. I had 2 of them, still in the cardboard casing under my ID. I didnt even realize till I got something to cut and pulled out my wallet and realized that I had brought them through security.
  • Manicure scissors. And yet they took my SHAMPOO.
  • a giant pair of scissors, a can opener, and a sewing kit! that was right after they'd had me take me shoes of and everything!!!
  • Me. You just have to take my word for it. a book of matches and one of those credit card thin tool kits (tweezers, knife, and nailfile all in one nice package). I was more suprised that they didn't confiscate my perfume atomizer.
  • You really don't want to know....it was actually an accident and I didn't find out until later when I saw what had passed. :P
  • A lighter and a can of deodorant, in my hand luggage. Yes I could have hijacked the plane with my flame thrower and taken everyone some place more exotic. :D
  • A cap gun and spare caps. (with gunpowder) They saw it and told me to put it in my carry-on. Since 9-11, I doubt that would happen again anytime soon.
  • My ego.
  • assuming you're talking post-9/11 a "cia letter-opener"
  • Lets see, K-bar, M-16A1,M1911 ,45cal., Alice Pack, all in one sitting. Although it was a military flight.
  • I flew with my family to move to Bogor, Indonesia, in 1995. Since this was a move, we took everything we owned with us. When I got to the security desk I did what they said... took all the keys and coins out of my pockets (why I had the coins, I have no idea)... So, I went through the metal detector and the machine went crazy. They went over me with one of those wands... And when they put it over my backside, the alarm went of very loudly... I took the wallet out of my pocket... which was all i remembered that I had back there. Trying again, the alarms still went off. The officer decided to let me go, seeing that I wasn't really creating any real hazard. When I sat down, at the gate to wait for the plane I still had my wallet in my hands. I sat down and my backside was terribly uncomfortable. Reaching into my pocket, I pulled out six AA batteries. I then remembered, while we had been packing that day I went to Montgomery Ward's to buy some batteries for the Walkman stereo that each member of the family had. I was too busy to put them in the trash, so I put them in my hip pocket...
  • my sharp tongue and bitting wit.
  • A dagger, some illegal fireworks, and a 4" knife (all at the same time) >.> That was pre 9/11 though.
  • I'm pretty hip to the rules, so I never even BRING anything with me that doesn't pass inspection... but we had an interesting time at Chicago O'Hare airport trying to convince about 30 different security employees that my husband's nebulizer wasn't an explosive device. This was AFTER we took it from Miami to Puerto Rico, to Bonaire, and back through PR and MIA. Chicago was the ONLY airport that thought a plastic box with a billion tubes inside and several dials looked funny.
  • I flew to Hawaii in December with two Bic lighters and a pair of small scissors in my purse. I didn't even notice I had those items with me until mid-flight but I found it disturbing that they, particularly the lighters, were not confiscated. Especially since Security thoroughly inspected my purse and took away my lipstick. I mean, I could have set fire to the flight attendant.
  • 2 knives 1 wwek aftr sept 11 out of ny 2 texas then 1 knife from tampa to ny... 4inch long blades didnt realize they were in my backpack which was "throughly checked" and was my carry on. good job idiots
  • I recently went backpacking and a guy with me is majoring in electrical engineering. He packed all kinds of lead acid batteries and jumper cables and circuit boards on his carry on to charge his phone, ipod, etc. He actually took a solar panel backpacking for 8 days.
  • a chain saw and folding table.
  • Lighters and a swiss army knife keychain.
  • heroin - 10 lbs from philipines, pre 911 Drugs kill mutha fuka I feel so much quilt for my drug sales
  • My Xbox 360. I was worried it would cause problems when I brought it through. And they did check it, but otherwise I got through without a problem.
  • Whatever you do, don't take contact lens solution! http://drphil.com/slideshows/slideshow/4635/ She was not a threat. She wasnt doing anything illegal. She definitely didnt deserve a beatdown. Ralph Nader said the cop who gave her the concussion looks like a frustrated wrestler, looking to beat anyone up. If they had beaten her like that in a back alley they would be doing 15 years in jail. http://drphil.com/shows/video/
