    Maybe they were afraid the transformer was going to transform from his shirt into a massive deadly weapon. :scratchchin:

    Seems to be a case of officers with a hard wired brain. If it makes them happy, change the t-shirt :rolleyes:

    The only issue I had so far was a lighter I had in my pocket. I had to light it to prove that it's no bomb :D

    Possible body-odour related and they didn't like to say?

    I don't know if it's an urban legend, or actually happened... but I heard about a guy who knew the pilot, and greeted him upon entering the plane. The flight was delayed and his was arrested. The pilot's name? Jack.

    Hmm... apparently it's true, but it was a co-pilot.

    Some TV exec was traveling and when asked "nature of visit" at customs.

    He answered "I'm here to shoot a pilot". Bad choice of words

    Maybe the security team had just finished watching Who Framed Roger Rabbit?.

    They let you through with a lighter? When I used to smoke I had to leave my lighter in my checked luggage, they wouldn't allow them in the passenger area at all. I remember seeing a bucket at the security check that was filled with confiscated lighters.

    How does taking away my rights to live free buy spreading a culture of fear and mistrust protect me again?

    They were a bit careless, that's right. I could even keep my belt and my shoes.

    I guess you can make a fortune by selling stuffed, stamped envelopes and parcels of all sizes on an airport (and I guess somebody already filled that market niche), so people can send things back home which aren't allowed to be taken into a plane.

    Re: Gun T-shirt 'was a security risk'

    Back in 2003 when I was looking at colleges I used to keep a swiss army knife in my backpack for still unknown reasons. I used to meet my dad at the airport and then we'd take some cheap jetblue flight to Rochester or Pittsburgh or somewhere. After 7 or 8 flights with my school bag they finally asked me to place it on the x-ray belt with the back facing down and only then were they able to find my swiss army knife. Did they confiscate it or ask me to put it in my checked baggage? Nope, they handed me an envelope and pointed me to the post office drop box thingy in the airport and told me to mail it to myself.

    edit: thanks krischan for ruining my story :crazyeyes:

    The first version of my posting involved a Swiss army knife as well, so be grateful that I left that out :p

    The censors made all the human characters in that show and even more absurdly G.I. Joe use lasers as a substitute for real guns. Apparently now even they're not acceptable.

    Seaspray was ****ing annoying too.

    I heard one lady wasn't allowed to take her knitting needles on board because they were afraid she would knit an Afghan.
