Things that cause confusion in airport security

Just a quick update today.  It’s been a whirlwind few days with a lot of travel, a lot of eating, a lot of time with family and friends, and zero workouts.

I learned a few entertaining things while traveling.  I’ve taken four flights over the past ten days or so, and here are some items that cause confusion going through security.

  • Gingerbread cookie mix (dry) – Flags as a biological agent
  • Reversible belt – Could be used to conceal a weapon (though I’m not sure how)
  • Tiny jewelry box – Scanner can’t see into it
  • Screw shaped hairpins – hair shouldn’t need screws to stay put (they haven’t seen my hair

I also watched a woman try to carry a tiny dog though in a baby carrier strapped to her chest, and a guy who didn’t understand why his giant cup of coffee was dangerous (Given this guy’s mood, I think not letting him have the coffee was more dangerous, but rules are rules.)
