Go security

So they insist on searching laptops heavily at airports, but the Shuttle computer I'm taking on a carry-on went through without a problem.

But I then realized why. It's the whole density thing. Laptops have batteries which look like explosives, and my real computer didn't. (which is also why you get extra searching if you bring peanut butter as a carry-on... it shows up as a plastic explosive.) Interestingly, my case with the LCD got searched a bunch, and she was asking "Is there a battery in here?". But she did a really half-ass check and just kinda looked in, not searching any misc pockets.

I probably got off easy today because I have the cute zebra girl with me (dina). What terrorist would blow up his cute zebra girl?
