Since it came up
You too can be the proud owner of 25 pounds of seized silver-tone pocket knives..

I guess that answers that question...

UPDATE: They've got darts and bicycle tools too!

No, that would be these.

*giggle* I can't believe there are actually things for sale with that phrase as part of the sales-pitch!

Holy crap that's a healthy fish!

Did I just hear part of your mind snap?

the emergency glass has been broken, and my brain is oozing out my ears in an orderly fashion according to the preconceived evacuation plan.

Giggling like a overmedicated monkey. Or an undermedicated me. Whichever.

I'm not any of this ranks with the whole "ghost in a jar" thing, but I am laughing.

... and that can't be all bad, right?

I guess I owe you for two more jokes
  1. The fish food auction referenced above features the following sentence in its description: I have used maybe a couple of pinches from it before my fish died.
  2. And googling the ghost in a jar thing took me to the Toast in a Jar page, and subsequently the Dropping Toast experiment.</ul>

1) That's what makes it brilliant!

2) I loves me the dropping toast experiment.

I hate how my company blocks eBay from my viewing eyes.

Just let me know if you want to buy a 50 lb. lot of assorted nail clippers. I'll hook you up.
cosmicserpent From: cosmicserpent Date: May 4th, 2005 05:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
I need 100 lb. lot of nose hair trimmers STAT.
komos From: komos Date: May 4th, 2005 05:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm not sure nose hair trimmers are on the list of prohibited items. Best I can do are scissors, and you can choose between all steel or with plastic handles in fashion colors!

i was just going to say to hell with the knives, I want the nail clippers!

I wish I could think of something less appealing right now, but I'm having trouble.

The hilarity would be worth the price of shipping.

The illogical nature of it all is just... um...

Let me get this straight - these items have been confiscated because they are potentially extraordinarily dangerous in the hands of Joe Public, right?

So why, in the name of little green sour apples, are they releasing these dangerous items back into the hands of the public, in bulk format?

According to my local state laws (non-USA), you have to show proof of age 18+ to purchase a knife over the counter.

Actually, 50 pounds of sharp things being shoved into the post would annoy the post office people.

They were seized at airport checkpoints. In most states, such things are considered Perfectly SafeTM in the hands of the ordinary citizen. Unless you're gay or French Muslim, in either case you'd probably be placed on an FBI watch list as a potential subversive. After all, you might arm an elite cadre of like-minded with Japanese hair shears and seek undermine All That Is Good And RightTM with radical coiffurage.

Ok, I gotta stop. ^_^

*Wonders how it possible to remove any more hair from a human head in order to make a flat top look even more radical* :p

Why on earth are bicycle tools verboten?

Do you have any idea how much of an Airbus you can disassemble with a basic set of hex wrenches?

Well do you??
wisdom_seeker From: wisdom_seeker Date: May 5th, 2005 08:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well... no... but, come on, wouldn't somebody else on the plane notice if you started removing bolts? After all, they noticed the shoe bomber...

That's because he was using fire...
