This whole banning of small knives and such was stupid from the get-go. The only reason the 911 hijackers were able to get away with using box-cutters was because up until then being hijacked rarely meant anything but an inconvenience, albeit a very scary one. Which is why most people had the "let them have what they want and no one gets hurt" mentality. Hell, once the people on the last flight found out what fate was in store for them they took the terrorists out - but of course by then it was too late.

Anyway, my point is that I can't see the threat of anything, including maybe a gun, that would keep a whole plane full of people (who believe they'll die if they do nothing) from taking action - especially before the hijacker has a chance to get into the cockpit. Nailclippers? Pocket knives? Puhleeez.

I guess of all my uncles, I liked Uncle Caveman the best. We called him Uncle Caveman because he lived in a cave, and because sometimes he'd eat one of us. Later on, we found out he was a bear.
