97. You're right that they shouldn't chance it. But what would normally be done after
alarm went off and they were told the pacifier had metal...if they would take the pacifier and have them walk through again
They were wasting a lot of time by not doing that first.

Their choices are sometimes surprising. Before the liquid fear changed things my son decided to take a case of local beer home to CA. I mocked him, told him no way could he take glass bottles in carry on luggage. Not possible. Bottles were too easily a weapon. He just smiled and said he isn't a terrorist, they won't care. The naivety of youth!

They didn't care...and he had 3 flights on the way home. They all saw it and he just told them they miss the brand. They didn't inspect the bottles to see if there were Molotov cocktails among them.
This was repeated every Christmas until they limited liquids on board (he never tried after that) and he never had a problem. He's charming but that is just strange.
