    This is so weird I couldn't believe it when I read it. First thing I thought of was Richard Reid and his exploding shoes. But when the security guys pulled on the piece of wire, his butt didn't explode, so I guess that's not it.

  4. Well at least those folks who aren't exactly the brightest people in the world working airport security are doing their jobs.

    Its a given that terrorist like to do bad things to civilian aircraft. Whether thats bombing them, hijacking them, or flying them into buildings. The terrorist of 911 were able to pull of that entire operation for just a little over $250,000 total from start to finish.
