I was stopped by TSA in LAX airport on my way to Burning Man because my backpack looked suspicious.
TSA: "Before I search your bag, is there anything sharp or dangerous inside?"
Erika: "No, just a couple lightsabers. But don't worry, they are only training tools an are not fully functionally. They are not capable of instantly cauterization. "
TSA: "OK, so I am looking for two lightsabers... Wow, haha, I thought you were kidding!"
Erika: "Nope, I really am just a geek."
Upong further inspection and another x-ray just to be safe, TSA returned my lightsabers and rendered them harmless.
He had a huge smile on his face when I left, so I like to think I made his day.
