book him, dano

The BAA have issued what appears to be a white list of stuff thats allowed on aircraft. And books aren’t included. I’ve always wondered about the possibility of hijacking a plane using only heavy hardbacks and paper cuts. Alternatively
What the hell is a terrorist going to do with a book? Threaten to read some really bad prose unless the crew fly into a building?

    Apparently, you can still buy books after security and take them on the plane. Of course, that probably means you’ll have to read something by Cecila Ahern or Dan Brown.

    Actually, I’ve been waiting for the media to tell us but what is happening all the stuff that people can’t bring on as hand luggage. I mean are the airlines sellotaping names to mobile and throwing them all in a black plastic bin liner in the hold?

    And of course, it is the lack of attention paid to more than one book that is in part causing all the problems.

    I went back out through security and gave a random guy who was still in the queue my swiss army knife to check in. I recommend this approach if you forget something. Or else you can stuff it up your anus and sneak around the security guards using stealth technologies.
