    I was catching an inter-island flight last week and someone had a pound of butter confiscated.
    Who needs a pound of butter on a 25 min. flight?

    If it were the 5 hrs to California, ok then, sure.
    That's a little less than a stick an hour, perfectly reasonable.
    But c'mon folks, for interisland that is just a bit excessive.

    Ok I have to ask was it some like artisan butter or are butter prices significantly different from one island to another? Why the hell would someone have a lb of butter with them?

    All of our dairy is atrociously priced, around $7 for a gal of milk, butter is around $5 /lb. unless you get it on sale.
    The outer islands are a little more expensive, but this flight was coming TO Honolulu and it was the regular store branded salted butter.

    On a related note, my co-worker was trying to take 1.5 lbs of poi on an earlier flight and they nixed him.
    He got out of line and sucked down the whole bag at least...

    Perhaps more importantly, who decides that these nunchucks also need to be carried in a way so as to be in plain view? Are you trying to deter someone or are you just a massive tool? Probably the former. You get a lot of menacing types in bookstores.

    Has anyone else seen **** like this? Like, useless weapons in places you'd never need them?
    Christ, I've been amazed by this Thread. Our bookshops have....books.

    For info, I was in WATERSTONE's in Camden High Street, London, and added another 5 (including Liston and Ali by Bob Mee - oh joy).

    BTW, I once had a set of nuns around my Neck and a 5th Dan TradJJ/3rd Dan Judo closed them around my Jugular/Carotid. I've never made THAT mistake since.

    The photos of knives amazed me so much I thought it was a Glasgow shop windown.

    Should have choked him out with them.

    I've never seen that personally, I'd probably fall over laughing if I ever did. I always thought it was funny that people would wear their belts outside of their training area, I see that a lot.

    In my local ninja weapon store I saw a guy with a book around the back of his neck. I figured it was because that area of town gets a bit academic at 4 in the afternoon.
