Friend Im'ed me links to these pictures taken supposedly at Cleveland Hopkins Intl.

I've never been outside security there, anyone see these?

Yes I know the site is collegehumor.com but the pictures appear to be legit, and you can see what seems to be a metal detector.  Silly

At the bottom of 156140, what's up with the cards? Must be metallic or something.

that's a very good exhibition display, IMHO. Not all people can read - you know visual education is VERY important.

Yeah but how many boneheads would stand there for 15 minutes and scan the case to make sure the knife they have isn't listed?  Smile

The cards have sharp edges like a knife at least from the ones I have seen.

There's a chainsaw on display at ATL too .... and although I can't remember what airport it is, there's one with a gas powered weed-whacker in the display case.

What on earth could you possibly ever need that for on an airplane?

ATL's display has other gems such as road flares, roach bombs, fireworks, spray paint, etc ...

ATL has the weed-whacker also, and a bottle of propane, a gasoline can and a barbecue grill... along with a can of WD-40.

The ATL case is well-known, thanks in part to Jeff Foxworthy's mention of it in one of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour movies. There's even a gas powered blower in the display there.

The thing is that nearly 4 years since 9/11, folks are still trying to bring prohibited items through security or in their checked bags. Have these people been living in a cave or under a rock since before 9/11/01? It also helps to further the notion I have about folks packing their brains in their luggage when they go on a trip.

The last time I flew out of ATL was April 2004, and I got pulled aside and had my carryon inspected because of the rolls of coins I had in my bag (I was going to Las Vegas). I can understand being pulled aside, as a roll of coins are of a similar size to shotgun shells and some small fireworks. It didn't bug me too much, as it only delayed me 5 minutes while the TSA guy searched my bag (A piece of advice for everyone who travels with a carryon, get some of those mesh or clear plastic packing containers, as it makes it easier for them to inspect your bag without wrecking everything.) plus I still had over 2 hours until my flight was leaving.

What is WD-40? Oil?

WD-40 is a common spray-on lubricant. It's an aerosol (compressed gas) and a fire hazard.

Also, don't pack steel-toed boots in your checked luggage. That was the only thing in my bag that could have been mis-interpreted as anything last time I flew, and it was hand-searched both ways.

If I thought anything would be done about it, I'd complain mercilessly about how the TSA guys treated my best suit when they rifled through my bag. I understand the need for safety, but there's no reason to destroy my nice clothing!

WD-40 is petroleum based as well as being an aerosol. So, exploding flammable can...

Those pictures are not CLE. There isn't a TCBY Treats at any of the security checkpoints. Take a look at the left side of the first picture. Also look at the floor tile. It doesn't match any of the floor coverings that CLE has recently installed in the airport.

doesnt look like TCBY is AT the security checkpoint on the picture, and yes, TCBY treats is at CLE and from the looks of it, it is at upper terminal, which is precisely where the security checkpoints for all terminals are (not too far away at least), so im gonna say it is at CLE.

one of the pics has a reflection of the dude taking a pic.
