(Anonymous): reminds me of a true story.


A TSA goon had turned on a butane-powered soldering iron to full power, and then put it back in the passenger's carry-on bag. It ignited the bag, then she accused the passenger of trying to bring "fire" on the plane. The original story was much longer and more entertaining.

That was Treetop of AR15.com prior to 9/11, TSA didn't exist.

(Anonymous): bringing fire on a plane...

then why the heck can you purchase a lighter at the magazine kiosk in front of your gate after going through security and having your zippo confiscated??? WTF is up with that? No you can't bring one through here... but you can buy one down the corridor on the left.

Custom didn't allowed my mom to keep souvenir - little botttle of oil (mineral oil from oil derrick). This souvenir was bought in the shop right near the custom. I say - they are selling these souvenirs themselves and then seizing them. Good business. :)
One my friend had to drink a full bottle of vodka in the airport. He had 2 bottles and they sad he can not keep them. So he said "Call 911", opened the bottle and drank it. They said "crazy russian" and allowed to keep second bottle after he started to open it :)

Lesson: You can carry all the liquids you want, so long as they are carried in your stomach. We better hope they never catch on to their irror-- they may resort to confiscating the contents of passengers' stomachs. -- Lyle

The catch is that I am selective about my clients. If I work with a person, consider that a compliment.

My commercial rates are $1400-1600 per day or $2,400 per weekend...though I discount for people with whom I particularly like to work.

totally understandable. Time is the one resource we can never recoup.

I do people photography for pleasure. Money helps though -- I have to pay for the time spent on RKBA work somehow.
