Snakes on a Plane! 25 Scary Things Found By Airport Security Checks

Courtesy of the T.S.A.

The next time you’re complaining about having to take your shoes off at the security checkpoint… at the airport, refer back to this list and you will understand why. Here is just some of the crazy stuff people have tried to take on-board commercial airlines in the United States.

The Transportation Security Administration actually has a website that keeps track of some of the most dangerous and unusual things your fellow passengers wanted to bring on planes.  Keep in mind, this is all after security was stepped up in the wake of 9/11.

It would appear some people  either didn’t get the word about increased security, or they are just plain dumb! These people are the reason we all need to be patted-down, swabbed, searched and x-rayed.

Here is today’s Top 25:

Yes, snakes on a plane. Someone tried to bring dead, venomous snakes with them.

Saw blades tucked in an i Pad.

A gassed-up chainsaw.

Thousands of loaded guns.

A grenade being passed as a paperweight.

Grenades being passed as just grenades.

Weed inside a jar of peanut butter.

Flasks filled with black powder.


A stun gun.

IED explosives.

An IED, shaped like a watch.

An old fashioned powder horn.

A chastity belt.

Samurai swords.

Almost 200 live fish.

A knife mounted to a walker.

Throwing stars.

A replica of historical artillery.

Replica mines.

A VCR containing 23 smart phones, individually wrapped in tin foil.
