STUPID TSA BANNING LIGHTERS
    #4057632 - 04/15/05 04:43 AM (12 years, 16 days ago)

so the US Blunderment banned lighters on airline flights...

they based this off of that retard who tried to light the C4 in his shoe (um helllooooo C4 doesn't light one must use a blasting cap{lighting it just causes it to burn}.

sure i know that there are MANY non-smokers and some will say "blah blah blah, I'm a non-smoker and you shouldn't too" :smoker:  please stay away from that this is about rights and economics.

here they state that they cause a problem, the only problem a lighter has cause on a flight is someone smoking, then they arrest the asshat and move on.  one isn't even allowed to check the lighter in their baggage... WTF.

but matches... still OK go figure...

your thoughts? :cuss:

Their reasoning is simple. The government gets more taxes from matches than from lighters.

they did not ban lighters you can still carry non clear lighters on board matches are banned

lighters where you can not see the fluid are ok to take.

well what the fuck difference does the color of a lighter, or whether you can see the fluid in it or not have to airline security?

Will someone please explain this one to me, I guess I'm just not smart enough to understand this .

Those clear ones, you can jack the butane regulator way up, and make a huge fire, or let it all out at once to make a huge butane fireball.


While it sucks, I mean, matches just don't have the explosive potential that a compressed flammable gas does.

maybe the US government should just quit fucking around - arrest everyone and put ankle braclets on them to prevent leaving their houses. Then everyone will be safe.

i dont see a problem with this as they let you carrie like 10 packs of matches and i am sure that there will be a million people selling lighters at the airports that you land at they have to make it look like the 911 comission is doing something

Who knows? I've often wondered about that too. But then again, I'm probably on their "no-fly" list anyway, due to a little disagreement between myself and the Government some years ago, so the point is pretty moot for me....

:bitch: :crymeariver:
It's not really a big deal, lighters are cheap and abundant.
If it prevents any type of lighter related incident it is well worth it.
Stupid TSA?  They are trying to prevent possibly deadly incident/accidents.
You don't need a lighter on the plane anyways dammit.
If you can't handle such a small thing as not being able to fly with your Bic You have bigger problems.

The voice of reason, ladies and gentlemen.

Who the fuck needs a lighter on an airplane? It costs 1.25. LEave it at home and get a new one where you're going.

thats true peoples safty comes before bringing lighters on the plane.

there are rules that dont makes sence and as a pilot i can say it stright.

i actually bypass security because i am armed in the cockpit so these rules do not really apply to me. what is stupid is i have a gun in the plane but if if they found a clear lighter on me i would be arrested.

anyway it is stupid that you can take cigar clips but not fingernail clippers(with file) the file on those things is way less dangerous then cigar clips.

anyway there are stupid rules but peoples safty comes first.
