Caption: "Just like that"

Commenting on a website of airline cutlery, top blogger Cory Doctorow said, "you could probably turn one of these into a shiv if you wanted". Yes indeed, and then stab the air crew with it, break into the cockpit, kill the pilots, and fly the plane into a building. Wouldn't that be fun? Why does Doctorow think this is a remotely sane comment to make?

Security through obscurity doesn't really work that well. What if terrorists thought of the same thing independantly and no-one had told the airlines that this was possible?

On an unrelated note, I've always thought disrupting traffic on the M1 to M4 junctions with the M25 would be a good way to piss off lots of people.

For a minute there, I thought you were proposing "the M25" as a means of disrupting traffic coming from the M1 and M4. Though I believe it's been quite successful at that.
