Sometimes, that line is the airport security line… and all too often, that mistake is chugging down bottles of booze you can ’ t get through a checkpoint.

“People are getting frustrated with airport security and the frustration is leading to people making jokes,” says Sage-Passant. Another taped a pocketknife into the hollowed-out plastic handle of an electric toothbrush. Such craftiness can lead to fines and even arrest.

One of the traits that supposedly sets humans apart from less intelligent animals is our ability to pass down knowledge across generations. For instance, the SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch isn’t the work of one man—despite how much Elon Musk seems to take credit for it: Instead, these feats are accomplished from the collective knowledge passed down from all of human history dating back to the Apollo Program, the Wright brothers, and even the caveman who invented the wheel (probably one of Elon Musk’s early relatives). And yet, equally as impressive as our capacity for learning is unwavering inclination towards stupidity. No matter how many times others make a mistake, a new generation will inevitably line up to make the same blunder. Sometimes, that line is the airport security line… and all too often, that mistake is chugging down bottles of booze you can’t get through a checkpoint.

Qatar Airways to comply with TSA's tougher cargo screening

  Qatar Airways to comply with TSA's tougher cargo screening Qatar Airways said on Wednesday it is in talks with the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to comply with their request for their cargo to undergo enhanced screening. The TSA announced on Monday it would require six Middle East airlines, including Qatar Airways, to toughen cargo security at their hub airports in the region."Qatar Airways is aware of the new Air Cargo Advance Screening requirements and is liaising with TSA and ... U.S. regulators to ensure regulatory compliance," an airline spokeswoman said in an email.

Can you sleep in an airport if you just arrived and don' t have a flight the next day? Is it safe, and is it even allowed? Many travel guides advise packing a knife of some sort, but how can I get it past airport security ?

Almost daily, however, we're regaled with a story of passengers not interested in an airline' s alcohol investment, who prefer chugging their own If you buy alcohol and must leave the "airside" part of the terminal, venturing back through security for a connection, all that Dom Perignon will go to the TSA.

Last Thursday, a 67-year-old German man attempting to fly to Bangkok was stopped by security at Frankfurt Airport when officials found two bottles of wine in his carryon luggage. According to Germany’s The Local, the pricey wines were intended as a gift for his hosts in Thailand. Apparently not content with the mistake of forgetting the 100-milliliter limit on liquids rule we’ve all come to know, the man decided to fall into another common trap: Purporting that these wines were too precious to go to waste, he chugged them both down instead of throwing them away. (How chugging fine wine is somehow not letting it go to waste is a philosophical question left for a non-travel day.)

As anyone who’s ever shotgunned two bottles of wine can attest to, the man quickly became inebriated—and problematically so: He was so drunk, the airline wouldn’t let him board the plane, at which point the intoxicated traveler opened a locked door via an emergency button and nearly stumbled onto the runway. Sadly, this decision caused his expensive wine to potentially become that much more costly: His unauthorized entry is an offense that can come with a fine of up to €10,000.

When the police arrived, as might be expected, the man was reportedly uncooperative, but three hours later, officials were still a bit sympathetic to the now-more-sober senior, suggesting he try to save some money by taking public transit home instead of paying for a €150 cab ride. Loosely translated from the German, he replied, “I’ve blown so much money today, the cost of the taxi doesn’t even matter.” And thus, we have the moral we should all remember: Don’t let a bad day ruin your sense of humor. Also, yeah, don’t chug your airport line booze either.
