I don’t think it’s possible for me to stopped MORE often when travelling (and I’m South African, but living in Britain) so I probably don’t need one either! ;-)

Where did you find it, Aaron?

Yes Aaron, do tell, where do we get one?

Feel like getting arrested? Handing these out at the airport would probably do it. Not that there’s anything actually illegal about doing so, afaict. but IANAL, so proceed at your own risk. Maybe someone should talk Gilmore into trying it.

If you click on the button, you’ll find out more.

You can buy an older version from Emi and Armand might sell you this one.

If it makes anyone feel any better, I work for an airline and I have to go through the same crap as everyone else. Everyone that has a name that’s on the terrorist watch list. Gone are the days when I can just go to the airport and walk up to a gate and get on a plane to fly somewhere at the spur of the moment on my day off. I know thanks to corporate security of the airline that I work for, I happen to have a name that is on the watch list, so I have to be cleared by them every time I want to travel. It is a comfort knowing that Ozzie and Harriet’s (no I’m not old enough to remember them, just a curse of my name) son David and I share a name that puts us under extra scrutiny when we travel.

How soon they forget! Even if you can’t find the button anywhere, all you have to do is carry around a copy of the Old Farmer’s Almanac. :-)
