OK, joke, but in all seriousness, it wouldn't surprise me if they were. Discussing getting semtex on a plane might attract some attention. Or am I paranoid? eek

while on my last trip to america, about half way through the plane journey i open up my bag to get out a deck of cards and realise i've brought a big ass packet of flash paper and an igniter with me. i was somewhat worried i'd got this on the plane.

What're you looking at?
I assume you're being rhetorical?
What're you callin' me!?

as long at you pack it in small containers under 100ml and carry it in a clear plastic bag then you should have no trouble bringing it on a plane wink or put it in a Yoyo, no-one had any problems with mine when I flew 3 weeks ago it COULD have been an explosive with a long fuse wink

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

1.Semtex is a taurine-containing energy drink manufactured in the Czech Republic.

2.DJ Semtex is also a BBC hip-hop disc jockey and producer from the UK.

3.Semtex is a general-purpose plastic explosive.





1. I would assume so

2. No. I would imagen it would be very messy. Also opens you up to torture/murder charges.

3. Do you even need an answer to this?!

Spanner... good point lady!!

Semtex is sooooo late 80s, early 90s.

Radioactive material is where it's at nowadays.

What kinda gets me is 'general purpose plastic explosive'.

As far as i know, plastic explosive only has one purpose - blowing stuff up. Or can you use it for other purposes, like a doorstop?

Just before we went to the airport to fly home from Kenya, I bought a life sized silicone rubber frog, that lights up when you squash it, and I put it in my top pocket.

There were some government officials flying on our plane, so as well as being held up for an hour waiting for them to turn up, we had to go through something like 7 metal detectors and X-Ray machines. I'd have to remove my shoes and belt each time. I was nervous that one of the armed guards would be worried at me having a hand at the waistband of my trousers, after just setting the metal detectors off, and tell me to put my hands up. This would have been most embarrasing, as my trousers had a rather large waistband, and I usually go commando.

After finding out at the first metal detector that the frog set them off, I'd take it out of my pocket, and put it in the tray.

This provided great amusement and took the edge off being annoyed by the delay and excessive security, as Kenyans appear to be terrified of frogs.

As soon as anyone saw it they'd shriek, and jump backwards, then cautiously approach it and give it a poke, at which point they'd shriek and jump again, as it feels so wierd and lights up. One of the security staff was chasing the others round with it at one point.

I dread to think of the chaos that I could have caused with this and the cabin crew biggrin

You aren't thinking or really existing unless you're willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgment of your existence.
