FREAKY FLIER: A naturalized US citizen of Chinese descent was discovered by LAX authorities to have some rather odd items in his suitcase, including a smoke grenade as well as “three leather-coated billy clubs, a collapsible baton, a full-face respirator, various knives, a hatchet, body bags, a biohazard suit, handcuffs, leg irons, and a device to repel dogs.”
Oh, and he was also wearing a bullet proof vest and flame retardant pants under his trench coat.
Wouldn’t want to sit next to that guy.
Oh, and in a wonderful example of 21st century technology, I am presently at 39,000 feet, en route from Miami to D.C., blogging via WiFi on a 737. Awesometown.
