1009 - The TSA is a bunch of idiots...

...but then I repeat myself.

I took a folding multitool from Wal-Mart and cut off the knife blade with a Dremel. Now, it's got nail clippers, scissors, a couple of screwdrivers, tweezers, and a nail file. You and I would think it's not a knife any more, right?

The TSA thinks it is.

Dumbasses.

Since my tiny nail-scissors are not carry-on legal, I see their position as being consistent.

Granted, it's consistently stupid, but it's also predictable.

Actually, your nail scissors may be carryon legal, now. They need to be less than 4 inches long, but according to the web site, can be metal or plastic, with blunt or pointed ends.

Those people are paid to be robots, not to exercise any judgement.

The weapon-detection algorithms on those droids appear to be buggy.

Just be glad that you aren't this kid: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=476369&in_page_id=1770

Because that seven-year-old kid is definitely really an adult terrorist in disguise who was too foolish to use a fake identity to get back into the USA.
