When did it become a half-hour show?

And yes, good stuff.

It's not, it's 15 minutes for a complete episode now, rather than the two shorts airing together with a bit of filler.

It was late, I was tired, but I could swear it was on for a whole 1/2 hour. Maybe I went to the bathroom and didn't realize it had changed when I returned.

Let's get a hundred people to strap fake bombs to themselves and stand in line at an airport to screw with TSA agents.

(I know, not so funny, but it did sound funny at the time I thought it up.)

They probably wouldn't find them. The TSA search test failure rate is around 70%.

I think I mentioned it before but I had a friend who received a free, high end butcher's knife as a free gift with some kitchen stuff she bought while we were all in Vancouver. She accidentally packed it in her carry on and it made it right through the x-ray machines. She discovered it looking for gum while we waited to board.

Maybe we need a new thread. What's the funniest thing you 'accidentally' smuggled through airport security?

A handful of .308 rifle cartridges, maybe 18 months ago. It was an accident - I discovered them in my jacket pocket while unpacking in the hotel.

Then again, before 9-11 I never had trouble carrying the Leatherman tool (with 3 or 4 blades) through airport security as long as I took it out of my pocket before going through the metal detector.

But they got the pruning shears!

One of my caregivers just told me on the weekend that she had the same thing happen to her recently, although it was a dagger style knife or something (being around females so often, I've developed a filter that makes it difficult for me to recollect what they've said). The clinical term that I coined is "solipsism bypass". I'm currently writing a self help book for anyone that's interested in learning how to create their own filter.

No need for a long book on how to do that.
