I thought the officers at the airport were going to shoot us on sight! It took us 45 minutes to get through the detectors, and the people in line hated us, hahaha. Not our proudest moment.


hahaha this made me laugh though

bwahahahahaha! 45 minutes did you guys miss your plane????

i always get 'randomly' chosen for drug and explosive testing so much so the last time i flew i got my aunties and cousin tested along with me, the best one thought is when my boyfriend and i flew to melbourne for the iron maiden concert and the whole flight was big hairy metal guys in maiden shirts and you could see the security wankers shitting themselves because they couldnt check us all and we had security all around our gate and the federal cops were there too so basically any other flight could have smuggled anything through because they were so preoccupied with us lol

Hilarious! No, we didn't miss our plane but we did end up having to ship our stuff ahead of us... It was so maddening at the time, but I love telling that story to any of my friends with questions about flying, hahaha...

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune—I myself am good fortune;
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Strong and content, I travel the open road.

It makes no sense to argue with crazy people cause crazy people don't have to make sense.

I was on an extra list on my flight to the US. Having negotated all the regular security I was called for yet another check and pat down at the gate. It's becoming harder and harder to fly to the US these days with the ESTA and all the additional red tape.

Nah its surgical steel. The detectors dont pick up on a lot of my jewelry either.

but i always gotta wear discreet jewelry when i fly cause its only to see my grandma and she think only satanic tribalmen have piercings all over their faces :lol:
well once i wore those fleshy colored silicon plugs and since my ears were an inch in diameter theyre still pretty damn obvious. they pulled me outta the line and had me take them out while some lady poked at them with latex gloves.

coulda been the ear bomber...

I went to melbourne with one of my mates recently we were explosive tested (again it happens every time) my bag was x rayed twice and they went through it and my mate has a fake bullet as a neck lace and he had it confiscated just incase he decided to throw it at someone. Like he could trow at the velocity for it to puncture someones skin *rolls eyes*

I was coming from Texas with a friend of mine and they confiscated this sandwich I had in my pocket. I'm vegan and they didn't have anything for me to eat on the plane, so I brought it from home. So I was hungry for the whole trip but they let my friend keep a wicked looking glass nail file in his pocket.



Also, I have been tested for explosives every time I've been to an aiport for the past five years.

I don't know if anyone mentioned it or not, but, hair extensions are a'ok. the clips dont set off the detectors. Word to the wise from my girlfriend.

dont have any weird shaped rings on ... i had a ring IN MY BAG and IN A BOX in the shape of small sewing scissors, which did not even open........ and they made me dig around for it and then this guy just walked away with it. i had to chase him up and actually ask for it back and he said i can have it back but i have to mail it to my house the arsehole.... he said i could wear it and jab some one with it. seriously? its tiny. i could do more damage with a fucking pen or a cross necklace,

im sure if it wasnt in the shape of scissors, and was a cross or a fucking kitten with a long tail it would have been ok. i think he must have been stupid cause i said you could jab anyone with any type of ring but the dick just shrugged and walked off. $7 later and its in the fucking post and i had to go through the detector about 3 times dealing with this prick! ugh! ok rant over i know its his job but fuck they werent even pointy......
