You can throw Denorex at the flight crew and incapacitate them, works better than mace. But well, we're dealing with the Dept. of Homeland Insecurity.Nope, never had a problem. Also never had a problem with my Palm. I've never been asked to turn either of them on and have always been waved right through. A scanner or Palm would sure look suspicious to me with all the circuits and wires if I was look at the x-ray but I guess not. Don't take more than one ounce of anything liquid though - they catch that and make you toss it out. That hair shampoo is really dangerous stuff. Dumb!
Explosives in the bowling ball? Have they been watching too many Looney Tunes episodes? Or perhaps the 1960s era Batman movie?I've flown with a scanner on my carry-on several times. Never had a question about it. Even when they said my friend had "explosives" in his bowling balls a couple of weeks ago. I have always listened in airports too and never had anyone question (with earbuds or headphones but the scanner is in the open on my hip).
