Here's one of the fun parts.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">I waited in total silence for about 10 minutes as he kept searching and searching, until I finally asked him, "What are you looking for?"<br><br><br><br>
"Contraband," he said without looking up at me.<br><br>
"Such as?"<br><br>
"Child pornography, hate propaganda."<br><br>
"Child porn I can understand, that's illegal. But hate propaganda is protected speech."<br><br>
Now he looked up. "What country do you think you're in?"<br><br>
"Oh, it's illegal in Canada?"<br><br>
"I honestly don't know. But that doesn't matter. I get to decide what goes in this country. Do you have a problem with that?"<br><br>
I paused for a long time while I thought about what I should say to this. "Yes."<br><br>
"Yes, you do have a problem?"<br><br>
"Yes, I do. If it's illegal in Canada I'll understand, but saying 'I don't want it in my country' isn't good enough when you're a government official."<br><br><br><br>
Now he was pissed. "Don't fool around with me. I'm sure you want this to end as much as I do. So I will ask you questions, and you will answer. Do you understand?"<br><br><br><br>
Another long pause while I thought. "Yes, I do."</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
And I thought that the US was paranoid!

haha, that's a good story <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I would have been very embarrassed if it was me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> But it would probably be worth it to have such an adventure to tell.

Wow, the first one was funny, and quite understandable, but the second is awful. They are basically discriminating against the arabic language.<br><br>
Not good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:">

<a href="http://stallman.org/tsa-complaint.html" target="_blank">http://stallman.org/tsa-complaint.html</a> This is another airport security blunder that I find amusing. This one is written by <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Stallman" target="_blank">RMS</a>.
