Airplanes and Weapons

If I put a blade inside my laptop computer, how likely is it the TSA would find it?

Of course, there are also many sharp objects inside my computer.

Of course, I could also just explode my laptop's battery by short-circuiting it.

Does anyone here believe for a second that our prohibitions on scissors and tweezers are anything more than symbolic in the first place? I know many people "out there" believe it, but that's only because they are a lot less creative than the terrorists are.

And that's especially alarming coming from our elected officials, because frankly, it doesn't take much creativity to come up with ways to terrorize an airplane, even if you don't have a pair of scissors.
