I think with the density they will show up on the walk through X-ray machines.
I have more questions than answers

Good point. Though carefully knapped obsidian might be capable of refracting x-rays, if one knew a shitload more about material science and optics than I do...

Perhaps a knife made of bone (preferably pig, for the muslim terrorists...) concealed along a pant seam so it's density was masked by the femur? A matching set, so both femurs show similar density?

The last time I was on a commercial flight, I could still smoke on the plane.

If you are on united and you see a terrorist, just tell the hostess that they are sitting in your pre purchased seat and that facker will be strong armed and frog marched out of there, post haste.

That was some bullshit wasn't it? I am amazed you heard about it in OZ. I can say this...if I would have been there, I would have defended that poor guy. Would have been a nice pay day for me as well 8-)

United simply wanted 4 passengers to step off so they could get 4 of their employees on the flight. If I remember correctly, the planes first stop after take off was within 300 miles(don't remember what airport) so they could have rented their employees a car and they could have drove it. Might have taken a little longer and it would definitely have been less expensive. I heard that poor Dr. got a few million bucks for his trouble. No one should EVER be treated that way. I hope United goes the way of the dinosaur for that stunt.

It was foul. I've seen people who attack cops treated better.
