Who Brings Snakes on A Plane?
Okay, so this snake didn't actually board the plane in a master criminal's well-planned attempt to assassinate a witness (yep, that is the actual premise of the movie "Snakes on a Plane"). Although it was stopped by TSA before boarding any kind of passenger aircraft, that doesn't mean it didn't frighten anyone.
Employees of the TSA are persons in their own right, and like the majority of people, they view snakes as menacing, writhing creatures that have the potential to cause harm and fear other people. After discovering this, it was obvious that assistance was required, and the proprietor was immediately confronted with significant challenges.
At first appearance, you could get the impression that this burrito is the same as any other that you could purchase at your neighborhood Taco Bell, but boy, would you be in for a surprise! This person attempted to sneak past security while pretending to eat a burrito that contained illegal drugs. The burrito was laced with illicit drugs.
It wasn't the worst effort at smuggling drugs that we've ever heard, and it was clearly an inventive strategy, but there's no way a trained canine and its nose can miss something like that. As soon as he was apprehended, the unlawful tortilla was taken away from him, ensuring that it would never have the opportunity to be stuffed with flavorful cheese and devoured by anyone.
Forgot About Technology
In this day and age, you would think that the majority of people would be aware of the potential of modern technology, but shockingly, there are still individuals who are unaware of these capabilities. It's possible that it's not even that they don't understand it; rather they just believe that they are more intelligent and can outwit a computer screen or scanner.
Imagine having such a high degree of ego that you actually feel you can get through TSA with a handgun or other objects hidden under your clothes. Now multiply that amount of ego by a thousand. Yes, these people do exist, and in a way, we find ourselves envious of the unshakeable faith they have in themselves and the extraordinary intelligence they possess because of it.
Riding With Ancestors
A human skull was found concealed inside an antiquated piece of pottery in this piece of luggage. The traveler was either trying to smuggle an artifact into another nation or rebury an ancestor, depending on the situation. It appears that we are dealing with an inferior Indiana Jones over here.
However, it was discovered after a thorough inquiry that he had no idea how it had gotten there and that it had actually been sealed inside an ancient clay pot he had bought from a vendor. Although the TSA's jurisdiction is now restricted to airports, we are confident that some agents were dispatched to ask the shopkeeper about how the hell a skull ended up in one of his pots.
Take One With You
Flights can be long depending on where you are leaving from. Anyone who has traveled by plane to Australia or New Zealand from the United States or Europe will tell you that the flight takes up nearly the entire day. Therefore, it stands to reason that aircraft meals may not be sufficient to satisfy a person's appetite while in flight.
Without a doubt, we comprehend the motivation behind someone's decision to pack a pizza and bring it on a flight. The fact that the pizza had to be scanned and checked for hazardous materials is the only amusing aspect of this. After the tortilla incident, though, you never know.
In point of fact, the rectum is the very last place on the human body where it is still possible to conceal objects from TSA agents. Even though it seems revolting and uncomfortable, a surprising number of people have really attempted to carry out this activity. You might be astonished to find that.
We shudder at the thought of how uncomfortable someone must be when waiting in line and trying to appear normal while moving around. Imagine going through all of that just to be searched and caught in the act, meaning your efforts were for nothing. Not only would you appear extremely foolish, but you might also face lengthy prison time.
This guy believed that no one would ever consider a little bow and arrow set to be a potentially lethal weapon. Well, guys, it should go without saying that anything sharp and potentially dangerous should not board a plane. Evidently not obvious enough because every day someone tries to smuggle something past the TSA's constant surveillance.
To be fair to them, it's possible that all they were planning was a hunting trip or a rendezvous with Robin Hood and his colleagues once they reached their destination. They were not permitted to board the flight, therefore it is likely that neither we nor they will ever know the reason why.
Okay, so she doesn't really have dirty underwear; that was just a crude joke intended to get a cheap chuckle. However, this woman was trying to get a quantity of illegal substances past security by concealing them within her underwear. She ought to have tried the method we discussed before assuming that this would work, though.
Or, she could have completely sidestepped the situation, to save herself a significant amount of jail time for a brighter future. We are aware that she is currently sitting somewhere and pondering the activities that she could be engaged in if she were at home rather than being confined in a jail.
Special Kind of Fish
This was an effort at a hot new take on the cult classic picture, similar to the film "Snakes on a Plane" that we previously mentioned, but this time with a shark as the main character. How exactly would a shark cause chaos among passengers and provide us with a good suspense movie? We have no notion because, surprisingly, this sequel wasn't as carefully prepared as the original.
Despite this, someone made a determined effort to board a plane while carrying a shark in a sealed container. We are not entirely certain which rules are being broken here; it is possible that you could bring this onto a plane, but there will be a significant amount of documentation and approval needed beforehand.
Medieval Fighting Aid
Just so everyone who reads this knows, just because something is antique and cool-looking doesn't mean it isn't a dangerous weapon. Why on earth would you think you could get away with taking a metal claw hand directly from medieval Europe onto a plane?
Regardless of his favorite fictional characters, Freddy Krueger or Cat Woman, he's in serious trouble. We must admit that it's quite an intriguing piece of equipment, and we would prefer not to have to engage in combat with someone who was holding one of these things.
Too Much to Swallow
In case you missed the pun in the heading, we are discussing the situation in which a physician instructs a patient to "open wide and take their medicine." In this specific circumstance, it is wholly wrong to do so, and doing so is not the course of action that is recommended.
It was noted that the woman was in severe agony when she passed through TSA, so we simply hope that in any event the small jar of medications was safely removed. If we didn't mention it earlier, they are taught to look at facial expressions, thus persons with foreign items inside of them typically make suspicious faces.
Who Does This?
This person attempted to bring on board the aircraft not only a bag containing eels, which is both revolting and disturbing, but also more than a hundred different fish and a variety of insects as well. As a direct result of this, we are working toward the goal of purchasing a little aquarium for our own usage.
We'll never know for sure, but once the TSA seized every animal, it was delivered to the appropriate wildlife officials who made sure it was cared for and that it had a new home with a suitable owner. Preferably someone who would never attempt to illegally board an aircraft with them inside water-filled plastic bags.
Bullets On Parade
This one is a little misunderstood, I suppose. Shot glasses styled like bullets were attempted to be brought on board by a passenger. Since they aren't actually live ammunition, what is the issue, you must be asking yourself. The problem arises, though, if the projectile is joined to the bullet.
It is still regarded as hazardous and a replica, so you must pack it in your checked luggage instead of bringing it on board with you. Ultimately, you can still bring it onboard with you; you just need to refrain from shooting with your pals while flying.
No Body Searches
As was previously indicated, the advent of x-ray scanning screens replaced the need for actual body searches. Before all of that, however, there were instances where individuals would remove parts of their clothing in full view of strangers and TSA personnel in addition to other passengers.
If that wasn't awkward and unsettling enough, a security officer now needs to search you from head to toe, which is a complete invasion of privacy. We are therefore happy that screens have become more commonplace, and that the TSA is continually working to increase our level of satisfaction.
Teddy Vader Smuggler
What at first glance appeared to be a simple small teddy bear disguised as Darth Vader from the Star Wars movie series was in fact concealing a sinister secret. This teddy bear was a member of the dark side, just like the Sith and other movie villains that had terrible motives.
A knife that had been inserted and repaired was inside the toy. Therefore, if you believed that a teddy bear was the furthest thing that could possibly do you damage, reconsider since criminals are incredibly resourceful and will go to lengths that we would never consider.
How Did You Fit?
Unfortunately, smuggling people into other nations against their will is very widespread and has been thoroughly documented. However, every once in a while we come into situations that are so poorly conceived that they cause our minds to spin. For instance, as you can see in this picture, a mother actually tried to sneak a child onto a plane by concealing them in her luggage and boarding the plane.
Even if she had been successful in getting through the TSA screening and boarding the airline, it is incomprehensible how she could have believed that the child could have lived for a number of hours in such a state. Although we can not understand the reasoning behind this situation, we are relieved that the infant was rescued from the luggage and will live to see another day.
We are happy to learn that cannabis has been decriminalized and made legal in most Western nations. However, even if that were to be gradually true, it would still be regarded as a narcotic, and bringing it onboard a plane requires the appropriate documentation and authorization.
There was no defense for what this individual attempted to do because this discovery was made long before new regulations were implemented. Not only was it only the marijuana, but it was also neatly packed with a knife in the same location. It almost seems as though he wanted to be discovered and imprisoned.
Must’ve Snuck Inside
Just wait until you hear about the cat before you think back to that sad guy who was discovered inside a suitcase. The TSA found a live cat hidden inside a piece of luggage. Even while moving with pets or animals is not against the law, doing so can come with additional costs and paperwork that this person may have attempted to avoid.
No matter what your reasons are, an animal of that size will be easily captured and put to death, and you will be responsible for dealing with the consequences, which may involve the abuse of animals. That cat had to have been relieved to finally be out of such a horrible environment.
Keep Your Cool
How could we not be concerned about someone who thought to put a live mortar onboard a plane? Of course we're going to worry about it! For those of you who don't know exactly what this is, it's basically a little bomb that's sprayed out of a tube and explodes when it hits something.
To put it another way, this man tried to hide a bomb that was very huge, and what's even more concerning about this is that he was going through the airport with it. If you have trust concerns after reading this list, we apologize in advance.
Outdated But Dangerous
Young people reading this may not understand what I'm talking about but trust me when I say that the Gameboy was popular back in the day. It was a battery-operated portable gaming system that allowed you to play all of your favorite classic games, like Zelda and Pokémon.
Even though some people might find that amusing, this has nothing to do with it. In reality, it's an improvised explosive device, or IED, that resembles a Gameboy almost exactly but in no way duplicates the enjoyment. Thankfully, it was seized, and the TSA's useful scanning equipment saved the day.
Enchilada From Hell
Why do people feel the need to smuggle illegal substances and goods into our favorite Mexican dishes? We're not sure what this craze is all about, but it looks like criminals prefer spicy wraps. Maybe they believe that when their smuggling operation is through, they can enjoy a wonderful supper as a reward for a job well done.
No of the motivation, trying to conceal anything in food is a fruitless endeavor, and if you need more proof of this, we will do all in our power to persuade you otherwise. At least we are aware that dishonest individuals are capable of preparing food.
Toys Not Guns
When did they begin manufacturing the toy bombs? In spite of the fact that we are appreciative of the innovation and creativity of toy producers who are still able to compete with video games, we have been familiar with a wide variety of toys over the course of our lives. But what about a toy bomb?
It appears that someone believed that because it was only a toy, it could board the aircraft. When the bomb squad and police were brought in to look into the situation after the TSA made this discovery, that wasn't the case. Despite the fact that it turned out to be a complete hoax, fines and penalties were nonetheless made for wasting everyone's time with a false alarm.
When you can celebrate the Fourth of July in the sky, why wait to do so with your friends and family? Perhaps this guy believed that loud explosion noises in a compressed tube full of people was what the forefathers would have preferred. No matter how big or how complex, explosions of any type are not permitted on airplanes.
Try to put off the excitement of the holiday celebrations until you get to your location, despite the fact that most people look forward to the holidays and they may be very exciting. We warrant that firecrackers are stocked in at least one location of every retail establishment in the United States.
Showing Too Much
The TSA later abandoned body searches in favor of scanning technology since it was able to observe everything without needing to make personal contact. The only issue that arose as a result of this implementation was the TSA's ability to observe everything that occurred beneath a person's clothing.
Passengers were outraged by this utter lack of privacy since they felt very uneasy about a stranger seeing them virtually naked on screen. Changes were made to make the security experience secure but less intrusive after their complaints were heard. We hope they'll keep making adjustments so the line moves more quickly in the future.
Since its inception, 3-D printed technology has advanced significantly. People believed it would never catch on and that we should look at alternative production methods in the future. However, it appears that there are almost no limitations now.
The 3-D printer can build anything you desire, but one person decided to create a gun rather than something useful and beneficial to all of humanity. We are amazed that they were able to code and develop something independently; if they wanted to test it out, go ahead, just not in an airport.
Any chance that this passenger was Carrot Top? You know, the well-known comic who embellished his comedy routine with all kinds of absurd and large props? No? Just perform a fast Google search to find out who we're referring to.
However, in this instance, it might have been a supporter of his work who believed it was OK to take a set of enormous scissors in his carry-on luggage. We don't know how they fit inside, and we don't know why he had them in the first place. But ultimately, who are we to evaluate the comedy genre?
Weird Drinking Taste
Of course no one put a real horse inside a bottle; otherwise, you can only imagine how big the bottle was. Given that the seahorses in question are endangered, the fact that they were discovered deceased makes this situation even more tragic.
Even if you don't have a dead one, having an endangered species or creature in your possession creates suspicions in the eyes of the law. How did this person get hold of them in the first place, and why were they placed in a bottle? We wish the cops had figured it out to prevent a repeat.
Artifacts Belong in A Museum
The only places we've heard of pirates are on ships and in our imaginations whenever we read about Blackbeard and his crew. This would-be sailor apparently missed the memo that cannons, especially really antique ones like this, have no business being on aircraft.
A small gun like this would make it difficult to take an aircraft, albeit it is unclear where and who it would be fired at. It's terribly bad that it has been seized because it was likely an antiquated artifact that a collector was bringing home. Oh how the tables have turned—so much for the pirates robbing you blind.
We're major fans of the 2000s action flick "Ninja Assassin." We like the action-packed battle scenes and all the mystical prowess that the carefully trained ninjas exhibit. Their ninja claws, one of several tools in their arsenal, allowed them to scale buildings more quickly and reach higher elevations.
Unknown to us, this person may have thought they would ascend the roof of the aircraft. A ninja, in our opinion, would have been prepared for the TSA, but their old Japanese weaponry were confiscated. I think that finally, airport security is just too good.
Not So Concealed Carry
On airplanes, replicas are not prohibited. Even if we genuinely adore this belt buckle, the sad reality must be said. Therefore, to this individual, you and your totally cool belt will not pass the TSA. We applaud your daring decision in attire and hope that it won't deter you from experimenting in the future.
But perhaps the safest course of action in airports is to maintain as much normalcy and conservatism as you can. The TSA probably likely instructed him to turn around and try again later because he must have been standing in line with his belt completely exposed.
Straight Outta Comics
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the classic Batman television series starring Adam West, you would see huge words appear during the combat sequences with 'Pow' or 'Bang. This was done to show the brutality that occurred whenever Batman defeated a bad guy without frightening the kids.
We must accept that this was a shrewd decision by the director and a significant part of pop cultural history. Unfortunately, this does not imply that you can carry around Batman's working gear in everyday life. Batarangs are seen as a weapon since they are sharp ninja stars rather than enjoyable toys.
One Phone to Rule Them All
Nowadays, cell phones are ubiquitous and permanently fastened to everyone's hip. We lose hours of our lives interacting with others, playing games, or even reading the news while staring at their devices. So why not further improve your phone and turn it into a fully functional tool?
It would appear that someone has already accomplished this by turning their phone into a Swiss Army knife. We must accept that this is not a bad idea; nonetheless, it is absolutely impractical for travel. We hope the TSA simply requested him to take the case off before boarding the plane if they were feeling kind.
Obsession With Bombs
Is this supposed to be a lighthearted practical joke that goes around the office? Take a number implies that you will pull the trigger and blow up. We're totally at a loss with this one, so I think our sense of comedy is from another generation.
However, bringing a horrible joke like a hand grenade onto a plane is not going to result in raucous laughter. On the contrary, it can be a catastrophe for which the police and bomb squad will severely penalize you. It appears that the joke's punchline blew up in his face.
Stolen Pirate Memorabilia
Okay, we can now say with certainty that people travel to far-off places in order to acquire some pirate artifacts. Was there a trend surrounding this that we missed earlier? Have the prices of ancient firearms and cannonballs recently skyrocketed?
Although we wouldn't mind starting a little collection of them and they do look quite great, there must be a more efficient way to move everything without needing to sneak it. The TSA backroom just doesn't feel the same, but I suppose owners of antique pirate-themed goods must fulfill their own private fantasies.
It's simply a faulty computer, nothing to see here, don't worry, sir. Guess again because a loaded firearm is hidden beneath all that clay and tape. They hadn't given much thought to just how they planned to get past security and board the plane.
We have to agree, though, that the motherboard and the bold colors they choose together did make for some interesting new-age art. But now isn't the moment for a lecture in art history; it's important to ensure the security of innocent bystanders, and it's clear that the smuggler had nefarious motives.
The TSA has never been a fan of reptilians. They are now practically arch foes, especially in light of the prior discussion of "Snakes on a Plane." But this time, the passenger in question reasoned that if some snakes were thrown in with the turtles, no one would notice.
False, everyone saw it right away and without even trying. At the end of the day, snakes will simply never board that aircraft. People should put the movie in the past and take note of their blunders after seeing how poorly it did at the box office.
