and those cushion things used for hunting
all fit snuggly in a backpack and coat pocket without fatigue
as for the weapon thing, i say dont be packing, you could be searched and kicked out of line if security has learned a few things from past events ( Like we all have). I say just form a crowd before you walk out so youll be protected in numbers, and keep a baseball bat in yer car.
and coffee lovers, I recommend holding off unless you are priveleged to bathroom breaks without spot in line lost, Coffee passes through much quicker than normal liquids.
