I was just at the TSA website reviewing the items that are now prohibited on board commercial flights. 

I know you will all be dismayed to learn that you can no longer carry on your cattle prods.

I welcome this development. I have long been a vocal advocate for nude air-travel. :D

Well, they just might stop the following happening if that's what it comes to.

Last week when I flew to Liverpool for my clinic appointment, I grabbed my lightweight rain jacket on my way out the door and stuffed it into my bag. (Just in case... English weather and all that) I had gone over the contents of my bag twice to make sure I had my travel documents and no hand cream or nail clippers.

On the way BACK HOME... I was stopped when my bag went through the X-ray machine. The woman wanted to look inside my bag and said I had a pair of scissors in there. And I was like "nuh-uh" and she was like "uh-huh" and I was like "nuh-uh" and she was like "uh-huh" and I was like "no way man, no scissors on me!" and she was like "just open the damn bag already...."

So out come a couple books and some bargain fairy lights and the latest edition of Positive Nation magazine and my new supply of codeine, sumatriptan and acyclovir... and my jacket down at the bottom of the bag. As soon as I saw my jacket, my heart sank. Yep, I had scissors all right, my five inch, pointy, and sharp as hell gardening scissors that I use to dead-head flowers and the last time I dead-headed my flowers, I was wearing the jacket.

Er... oops!

Damn, I liked those scissors! But what gets me is that they were in my bag on the way out too but they weren't spotted in the X-ray machine here on the Rock. Oh dear!

Matty, I hope you don't advocate nude train-travel too. Put it this way, you better be wearing clothes when you meet me at the central station!!! :P

Nude travel could be fun..as long as I'm not sitting down in the aisle seat when the guy who has been allocated the seat next to me stretches up to put his bags in the overhead luggage compartment... ;).

Melia...I now have visions of Matty doing a Happy Dance buck naked in Central station... :D

Hugs

Doll,

I do many things in the buff. As a matter of fact I'm always nekkid when I'm reading or posting here in the AIDSMEDS forums. I'm in the raw right now. I often wonder what the WW's would do if they knew the answers they get are being delivered by a naked 6'4" HIV infected homosexual Australian.

That said, I'm always clothed on CityRail Stations. Believe me, going nude at Central is a mistake you only make once.

;D

They'd beat a hasty retreat to the Body and start asking about internet viruses. :P

Just sayin....
