    Visit a prison museum, Prisoners make shanks and weapons from everyday items including toothbrushes. Who knew a toothbrush with the head removed could be made into a mini spear?

    I just noticed my phone did one of those autocorrrect things again. I was saying a toothbrush can EVEN be a weapon, but my phone decided to correct it to NEVER. Oh well.

    I've flown a few times with the County Comm Embassy pen in stainless steel. The only questions I got were why I had a F.A.K.

    TSA will not allow you to carry the needles in the aircraft cabin.

    Actually according to the TSA website both are specifically listed as being legal to carry-on, which is why I stated it. It surprised my as well. Therefore, if they didn't allow them, they would be violating their own stated policy, which wouldn't surprise me but I would be sure to point it out.

    Just have some yarn and something something small started so it looks like you are working on something.
