    Why doesn’t anybody make a mechanical pencil put of brass cases? I’d be all over that. I like using mechanical pencils and normal ones are too lightweight (brass is the perfect weight).

      Try suggesting them… they might do it.

      BTW, this is great to get your bag searched in the airport.

        I don’t think they’d notice the pens. The razor and the “vape” nonsense, maybe.

          My wife got stopped in the airport checks for a pen that vaguely looked like a bullet. Personally I got the security screening guys puzzled by carrying a BaliYo pen in my laptop bag.
          However in both cases no real issues and solved fairly quickly.

            When I was on the way to Iraq, in a plane full of Marines, in uniform (and with weapons on the plane), we stopped in Baltimore. I went out to smoke a cigarette and call my girlfriend. Going back through airport security, the guy gave me a real hard time over the carbon pick in my cleaning gear that I had in my cargo pocket. I was in uniform, with military ID, and 400-odd other guys dressed just like me. He finally let me on with my cleaning gear after I explained that I had an (obscenity redacted) M16 under my (obscenity redacted) seat on the plane, and I was going to fight the very people he was trying to keep off the planes in the first place.

            So yeah, never underestimate the stupidity and pettiness of the TSA. You’re completely right.

            And now you have an entertaining story to tell, thanks to that very stupidity. 🙂
