    Geoffrey, Ken,
    
    The idea of carrying a published description is of course a brilliant one.

    But how do you convince them that this is not a bomb if it looks
    like a bomb, and has wires (even if you check the batteries in the
    check in luggage separately), and
    a ticking mechanism inside:-)
    
    Besides that, they are not only interested in bombs.
    (Once I had nail clippers seized; little scisors, 2 inches long blades).
    And even a nautical sextant makes a perfect weapon: you can easily
    crush someone's scull using it, I mean a sextant with a bronze frame, not
    a plascic one:-)
    
    Alex.
