Going through airport security two to three times a week has caused me to lessen my appreciation for the TSA. From The Atlantic: I'm going to start carrying my PLO, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah flags through airport security. I could probably borrow them from Obama.
“The whole system is designed to catch stupid terrorists,” Schneier told me. A smart terrorist, he says, won’t try to bring a knife aboard a plane, as I had been doing; he’ll make his own, in the airplane bathroom. Schneier told me the recipe: “Get some steel epoxy glue at a hardware store. It comes in two tubes, one with steel dust and then a hardener. You make the mold by folding a piece of cardboard in two, and then you mix the two tubes together. You can use a metal spoon for the handle. It hardens in 15 minutes.”
