So much for Airport Security, eh?

Lateral Thinker forwarded this one to me and I thought it would be of general interest.

Two people suspected of stealing up to 1000 pieces of luggage from baggage claim carousels at a US airport have been arrested by police who found piles of the stolen bags strewn throughout their home.

There were so many suitcases that Phoenix police could only give a rough estimate of their number...


Go here for the 'rest of the story'...

Ha! Sometimes I seriously wonder about those carousels, I always stand right next to where it comes out.

I haven't flown in anything bigger then a 2 seater, so I haven't a clue about it "in person" but I have heard and seen enough illustrations to wonder about it.
 
The bags come out along a conveyer belt for you to collect.

Yeah, seen it on the movies a few times....but never up close and personal :-)
 
 Nothing to it really, you haven't missed too much.

Indeed.   The 2 seater though, that was interesting taking off and landing (it was hard to concentrate when I was in the air looking at the countryside, as my ears hurt so much).    :-)
 I had that once, I was 13 but god it hurt!!!

Yeah, being in my 40's at the time, I was able to think about how to equalize the pressure a bit.  :-)    It didn't remove the pain altogether, but it did to somme degree.
 My first experience of beef jerky ever, t'was sweet happiness to have something to chew on.

I'll be on more this week, I'm at mum's place, sorry for being offline for most of this week.

No need to apologize :-)  We all do whatever we can, when we can
