    I can't wait for the day we just sit on a plane in our underwear and our luggage is on another plane.

    Better yet.... Just go with the birthday suit. You thought sitting next to certain people NOW was uncomfortable...

    The last time I flew was in 1998. I had to prove my cell phone and pager both worked, way back then.

    Interesting. Never heard of it or even considered it really.

    Everyday the world seems to get a little bit crazier and people get just a bit more paranoid. It's really sad we live in such a world where people see these devices as potential weapons....

    "will not allow cellphones or other electronic devices on U.S.-bound planes at some overseas airports if the devices are not charged up"

    Just a guess, but it could be that those certain airports don't have scanners to use on carry on items. I've also been asked to turn on a laptop at LAX before flying to Houston.

    I've had them check my camera and laptop before during one of the pat downs AKA groping session. He took my camera out and asked me to turn it on, then the same with my laptop as he swabbed it for explosives. I almost told him I never keep my laptop near my explosives but I was already late for my plane and didn't want to sit around for a couple of hours.

    Flew to San Antonio a few months ago. Laptops have to be removed but tablets/iPods/etc don't. That rule doesn't make sense to me. Also why do some airports make us take our shoes off while others don't care? Too many inconsistencies between TSA across the nation.

    I thought they got rid of the shoe rule a few months ago, but as you mentioned, the rules are so inconsistent across the nation who knows.
