Lifehacker has this nifty article about opening snack bags with two coins that function as impromptu scissors. http://lifehacker.com/5978632/open-stubborn-snack-bags-with-two-coins That's not the interesting part. The interesting part is that as soon as the ensuing discussion turns to "doesn't everyone have a pocket knife?", TSA-bashing sets in. Almost immediately. I added my bit of fuel to the fire (for the record, I meant it - they do all deserve bone cancer and a lingering, undignified death) but the fire was burning before I got there. "An excuse for some overpaid, illiterate TSA (expletive deleted) to treat you like a mass murderer." Travel was never mentioned in the article, and yet people jumped at the opportunity to give TSA a well-deserved trashing (again, TSA and all its employees always deserve every last piece of criticism and degradation they receive - there are no exceptions, though I'd say Pissy is front-and-center). TSA has become a household name when it comes to the hatred of the people.
