It never ceases to amaze me how lax airport and 'airport style' security is when I'm travelling. My needles are in my hand luggage, yet every single time without fail over the past 15 years I have never been challenged when they go through the x-ray scanner thingy. Not even when travelling to and within USA. My girlfriend finds it completely unbelievable that they'll make be take off my belt/shoes etc etc but my needles pass through without comment! Do other people have the same experience or have I just been fortunate? Do some of you out there get hassle at airports/security at venues etc?
