Airport Security (again!)

So they go through all this rigmarole about bagging up your liquids, queing forever, taking off your shoes, blah blah blah....but I was allowed to walk through yesterday with 100 needles and 5 syringes full of what is effectively poison (insulin) which I had to pick up in Ireland for someone. It wasn't detected nor has it been any of the times said person has travelled in the past 5 years.
The whole thing is such a joke. If someone wants to wreck the place, they will.

It may well be exempt, but that doesnt take away from its usefulness in hi-jacking a plane!

Certainly, a big dripping syringe that contains AIDS, a lá the druggies prefered weapon when robbing, would definitely make you think twice.

I was threatened with a bloodfilled sringe once. I told the ****head that if he tried it he wouldn't get out alive. Never saw a guy run as fast.

What I can't understand at all, is that it is possible to purchase items made of glass after security checks.
What If someone decides to hijack a plane armed with shards of glass?

You are not allowed more than a 100mm bottle of it.

Well I was allowed the 500ml.

Oh and btw I mentioned the syringe in the context of a passenger on a plane using it to hijack a plane. Threatening an air stewardess and the like.
