Okay now if that was Cobra Commander or Destro I could understand. tongue.gif

These airport security procedures are getting overly ridiculous.

this isnt the first time its happened, and i doubt itll be the last.... people are stupid.... especially those that think you can hijack a plane with a (VERY) mini plastic gun...

oh that is great!
fifty of us board a plane at once with tiny plastic weapons!
- or do a flash mob in a mall or somewhere-
all of a sudden a group is in position, all armed with joe rifles!

Actually guys the logioc of confiscating replica weapons is very clear to me .


there was this show i once watched and what hte terrorists did was take real toxic acid and shimple waterguns and passed them through securty and then filled them up on the plain and hijacked the plain

needless to say the good guy spetsnaz agent on board took out all four :D


but still it shows that what terrorists wil eventually do is use improvised methods to get by securty

who knows a vile of this stuff inside a Gi joe?

that stuff is not very noticeable by a metal detector.

now sure the first time i read this story i laughed (it was a long time ago)

but more and more i can see that these safetly precautions are not meant to be a hindrance but are based on safety and attempts to stop all sorts of different things a terrorist could potentially do.

What if there was a legitamate reason (some sort of detonator placed insid ethe oll and triggered by the joes gun)
they wouldnt really make it public that they knew


sometimes things may seem funny but the truth is thee are serious repurcussions if they are not handled that way.
