Wow, this story (click) about a 60-year old guy who threatened to remove someone’s eyeballs in a dispute over an airplane arm rest is rather scary, to say the least.
Another version here (click). What I find fascinating — reporters who failed to ask take note — is that nowhere does the story mention that this guy took a 3.5 inch Gerber knife THROUGH SECURITY which is supposed to be so darn good at finding, well, knives.
Maybe since 9-11 they’re cracking down on case cutters, but Gerber (actually a brand name, I believe. Did anyone check?) knives are OK?
Admission: They DID find my 2-inch swiss army knife and made me mail it home. Still, let’s sharpen up that x-ray machine guys.
