I can't believe this thread got so far without referring to "National Opt-Out Day". Let's just say I'm glad I'm not flying next week, or for that matter for several months:

If I was a suicide bomber and wanted to blow up a plane, I would swallow the explosives. I suspect you could get quite a bit more down than up, if you take my meaning. I'm not an explosives expert, but I think you need a detonator with the explosives, and I can't imagine anything short of a full body x-ray that would detect it inside your stomach.

I thought the whole purpose of the increased air travel security was to stop a plane from being taken over and used as a weapon, not to keep it from getting blown up. Isn't that why they take your nail clippers, so you can't threaten to clip the pilot's nails if he doesn't crash into a building? That option isn't even available anymore with the hardened hatches. It seems they (gov't) have lost track of the mission, sort of like when MADD stopped fighting drunk driving and started fighting drinking in general.
