USB Time Bomb Alarm Clock – items not to pack in your aircraft carry on…Part VIII


You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to realize that airport staff are still a little jumpy about things at most locations around the world. The ‘will-they, won’t-they’ ritual at most security checks as you debate whether to proactively whip off your shoes, tie, belt, hat and braces is just one example of the confusion all this theater involves. There’s definitely things you don’t want to do in the line though, including making a joke about that lump of C-4 stuck behind your left ear.

Another thing we would suggest you avoid is packing this lovely looking USB Time Bomb Alarm Clock into your carry-on baggage. We’re not sure why, perhaps it’s the color scheme which worries our sensibilities. Or the lumpy shape? Or perhaps the fact that security staff nowadays have ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE OF HUMOR whatsoever.

Whatever the reason, we’d counsel you to leave the thing at home, or failing that dismantle it…remembering of course to cut the blue wire first. Priced at $30.00.
