Hey, don't fret it.  Pretty soon you may be able to carry a gun to deter
the security folks from confiscating your nail file to prevent you from
hijacking the plane that you already control.

The picture ID is nothing. When I go to work my picture ID is checked.
my bags are rummaged through, pockets emptied, shoes checked, and I am 
wanded. If they find a "weapon," like nose hair scissors, or a file on
nail clippers, it is confiscated. Then I am allowed to proceed to OPS
my ID is checked again against a computer photo before I can receive any

paperwork. Then...before I can leave OPS I must be escorted to the
(so I don't pick up a weapon on the way..I guess). While onboard the
before the doors are closed my ID is checked AGAIN! Just in case I was 
kidnapped between the door of the airplane and my seat. 
After all of that I am then magically found worthy and trusted with a
million pound airplane.
