14 Unbelievable Items That The TSA Has Confiscated From Plane Passengers

Always remember that idiots not only walk among us, they fly over us as well. The TSA knows this, they also know that the real question you have to ask is; were any of these people an actual threat? Were they intent on causing harm, or were they just incredibly dumb, intent on brining some cool-looking item from a foreign country back home to show off to their friends and family.

It's all a matter of perspective, but probably a good rule of thumb to adhere to if you are ever thinking of bringing something back home from your travels is that normal people should be able to figure out that carrying 81 pounds of marijuana or a mortar round onto a plane will get you into trouble, very serious trouble, even if you look cool.

Here are a list of 14 incredible items that really don't belong anywhere near a commercial aircraft:
