The fact that they used the real thing seems pretty stupid, but this test in general is exactly the kind of thing governments need to be doing much more often, and on all fronts. It's not like anyone is harmed, except the innocent passenger who loses a day or two of his time at most. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:28, 6 January 2010 (UTC)


You use inert simulations, not the actual fucking thing! --Patrick M (TUFKAAP) (talk) 14:28, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

In addition to that, please read the article carefully;
