    Most of these are totally uncalled for.
    Not to mention it really eats up time.
    Time that could have been spent with
    family or doing more productive things.

    Uncalled for? Isn't that the point of OT?

    Eats of time? Again, isn't that the point of OT?

    If reading these post takes way time you hink you should be spending with family or doing productive things, my advice is stop reading these post and spend more time with family and do more productive things.

    "A friend of mine sent me this about his TSA experience. He, unlike most of us, was coming back into the country from Afghanistan on a military charter."

    As the Chalk Leader for my flight home from Afghanistan, I witnessed the following:
    When we were on our way back from Afghanistan, we flew out of Baghram Air Field. We went through customs at BAF, full body scanners (no groping), had all of our bags searched, the whole nine yards.
    Our first stop was Shannon, Ireland to refuel. After that, we had to stop at Indianapolis, Indiana to drop off about 100 folks from the Indiana National Guard. Thats where the stupid started.
    First, everyone was forced to get off the planeeven though the plane wasnt refueling again. All 330 people got off that plane, rather than let the 100 people from the ING get off. We were filed from the plane to a holding area. No vending machines, no means of escape. Only a male/female latrine.
    Its probably important to mention that we were ALL carrying weapons. Everyone was carrying an M4 Carbine (rifle) and some, like me, were also carrying an M9 pistol. Oh, and our gunners had M-240B machine guns. Of course, the weapons werent loaded. And we had been cleared of all ammo well before we even got to customs at Baghram, then AGAIN at customs.
    The TSA personnel at the airport seriously considered making us unload all of the baggage from the SECURE cargo hold to have it reinspected. Keep in mind, this cargo had been unpacked, inspected piece by piece by U.S. Customs officials, resealed and had bomb-sniffing dogs give it a one-hour run through. After two hours of sitting in this holding area, the TSA decided not to reinspect our Cargojust to inspect us again: Soldiers on the way home from war, who had already been inspected, reinspected and kept in a SECURE holding area for 2 hours. Ok, whatever. So we lined up to go through security AGAIN.
    This is probably another good time to remind you all that all of us were carrying actual assault rifles, and some of us were also carrying pistols.
    So were in line, going through one at a time. One of our Soldiers had his Gerber multi-tool. TSA confiscated it. Kind of ridiculous, but it gets better. A few minutes later, a guy empties his pockets and has a pair of nail clippers. Nail clippers. TSA informs the Soldier that theyre going to confiscate his nail clippers. The conversation went something like this:

    TSA Guy: You cant take those on the plane.
    Soldier: What? Ive had them since we left country.

    TSA Guy: Youre not suppose to have them.
    Soldier: Why?

    TSA Guy: They can be used as a weapon.
    Soldier: [touches **** stock of the rifle] But this actually is a weapon. And Im allowed to take it on.

    TSA Guy: Yeah but you cant use it to take over the plane. You dont have bullets.
    Soldier: And I can take over the plane with nail clippers?

    TSA Guy: [awkward silence]
    Me: Dude, just give him your damn nail clippers so we can get the f**k out of here. Ill buy you a new set.
    Soldier: [hands nail clippers to TSA guy, makes it through security]

    This might be a good time to remind everyone that approximately 233 people re-boarded that plane with assault rifles, pistols, and machine gunsbut nothing that could have been used as a weapon.

    Wow that's ridiculous. I'd much rather be stabbed by nail clippers than hit by a rifle ****
    Too bad they didn't revolt - that'd be awesome, those TSA guys wouldve crapped themselves.

    You know, the thought of all this intrusive behavior makes me want to have a nice omelette for breakfast, a great Mexican buffet for lunch, and Chinese with lots of broccoli and cabbage, go horseback riding for about two hours in the hot sun, then book a flight and YouTube the results.

    This, would be awesome.

    Just make sure to object to the Xrays.

    And carry something questionably innocent where the sun does not shine.

    I already have various metallic objects in fun places, and I've been know to clear an open flight deck in 25 knots of wind without even trying.
