Anyone who's ever traveled in the U.S. has encountered the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Their officials are the ones running security at all of the nation's airports, among other ports of travel. While few things are more painful than having to wait in the long security line, you do have to admit that without them, air travel would be a heckuva lot more dangerous.

Every year the TSA does a roundup on their blog of all the things that they prevented from going onto planes during the last 12 months. The things people try to sneak onto aircraft are not only dangerous, a lot of them are downright absurd…
