Funny story time! I was going through airport security and after the usual feel-up by security, I saw my bag had set off the alert system and was about to be torn apart.
I wondered what might had set it off. Maybe the bag of malic acid? I think I heard something about taking chargers out but was in a hurry and had other things on my mind so I forgot to play along with whatever new form of security theatre they were engaging in.
So I get to the counter and the guy asks “Do you have any Yu-Gi-Oh! cards?”
I say yeah and note I have a box in the back pocket. He says he knows. Okay. I mention after he pulls it out that I have a small tin in there, too, and he’s already pulling it out. I guess those machines are good at detecting the presence of children’s card games.
He ends up going through the whole collection and swabbing them and testing the swabs. I guess my deck must suck because they let me go and really the only explanation I can think of is they’re worried terrorists are now harnessing the power of the shadow realm.
