  •  Had a TSA agent teach me some packing tricks (1+ / 0-)

    I once asked how he'd get all that stuff back into a bag if it was packed to the gills and didn't want to go back in.

    Two tricks:
    1) use the expansion zipper -- open it, put the stuff in, and then close it
    2) when folding your clothes, try to minimize the number of folds and keep the folds toward the outside edges of the bag.  Folds use up a lot of thickness and make it harder to get stuff in the bag.

    'Bout the only use I ever had for TSA, though.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

      clothes instead of folding them. It seems to work, I was able to fit a weeks worth of clothes in a carry on suitcase.

      I thought they only stole stuff.  The TSA is the most ridiculous and criminal branch of the federal government.

      Nothing but a bunch of ignorant, stealin' mooches in uniform.

      Security theater is right.
