    The Patriot Act was promoted as good and necessary.

    I wouldn't be suprised if P&G had an influence...just saying.

    I always have a bag to check-in anyway. I fly maybe once a year or every 2 years, only for vacation. That being said, I always take a disposable.

    I knew a guy that would mail himself a package to the hotel he was staying at.
    Things he couldn't take on the plane.
    He would just ask if there was a package for him at the front desk.
    I don't know ow if that would work nowadays.

    I did this when I flew to NC pre-pandemic to visit friends for a weekend. My blades were waiting for me upon arrival.

    I don’t understand the rationale. An empty safety razor is bad, but ski poles, tennis rackets, golf clubs and massive carryons are good. I’ve seen all allowed on planes.

    Neither do I. It's like at work in the mid-90s when we first got access to the web. After a short time, our CIO forbid access until further notice. It was easier just to do that rather than figure out a bunch of rules, exceptions, etc.

    My guess is that workers didn't know what the heck those safety razors were, so rather than train them, they just forbid them. They really should just forbid all razors, even carts and disposables. That will be next.

    Aren't boxer's hands considered lethal weapons? So what do they do, handcuff them?

    I'll stay home if TSA ever restricts crayons. (Mine aren't massive, but I always roll with the 64-pack because of the built-in sharpener.) What's a guy supposed to do in the sky for hours on end, anyway?

    Several years ago I flew somewhere and had a single blade in my checked bag and my trusty fat handled pre-war Tech in my dopp kit in my carry on. No one batted an eye when I flew out of Colorado Springs. However, flying back, the screener noticed the razor and sent my carry on for inspection. The TSA inspector was a wet shaver and he said, "Cool Tech! Pre -war? Blade in it?" I responded, "I think so. I can take the blade out and toss it." "How many shaves on it?" he asked. I told him maybe 3. He said, "Okay, have a great trip but that blade still has a few more shaves in it," winked and said wished me a good flight.
