This reminds me of a conversation I had with 2 of my co-workers yesterday morning. One of them is leaving for China on Thursday morning and we were discussing what he's going to do on the 14 hour flight. I had said that my only concern for a flight that long is that I had enough knitting/crocheting and Tom Clancy novels to get me through. They had said that knitting needles weren't allowed, and I had gone through the whole thing about how they were... yadda yadda yadda. Then I said the line about "if any terrorist wanted my needles to use as a weapon, he'd have to get them away from me first, and there's no way that's gonna happen!!!"
