Airport security, my keychain

When I was 14 I found a brass cow tag while walking through a pasture owned by a friend of my grand parents.

It had the number 42 on it.

I have carried it with me ever since.

Every so often it sets off a security scanner at an airport. A security person will open my bag, take a look at it, and waive me through. At most this happens every two years.

No one though has ever taken the keys and rerun them, by themselves, though the x-ray machine.

That changed this morning when the Swedish security guard just had to run the keys through the security device by themselves.

Just my keys in a plastic bin going through the x-ray machine. Brass cow tag and all.

It is brass, how is it ever going to be a threat?

In other news, the war on moisturizor is being enforced in Europe now.

Is this a sign that Europe is about to one up the US and start the war on brass cow tags? Is this just a response to the war on glitter?

Or could it just be because we make them take their shoes off when they visit the US?

Looking at the styles popular in Europe right now it must be a real pain for most of them to do it

Maybe they just fear a waive of Cows with Guns!
