Airline itineraries always warn people to get to the airport at least two hours in advance. That's because going through the security check can take over an hour, especially if they randomly select you for an additional screening. Some have missed their flight due to annoying, usually unnecessary searches. Here are some examples of some of the funniest and strangest encounters with airport security.

4 - Weekend With Curt
This silly story occurred inside a Liverpool airport located in the United Kingdom. Two women arrived at the terminal pushing an older gentleman in a wheelchair, who they told many staff members was simply sleeping. Well, as it later turned out, the man in the wheelchair was named Curt Jarant and he had actually died several days prior to arriving inside the crowded airport.
When attempting to push Curt's body through the x-ray machine, his sunglasses fell off and security officers became suspicious of the two women. The women were Curt's widow and his stepdaughter, who were attempting to save a few bucks on costly reparation fees which accompany flying a deceased person. How they thought they could get through check-in, security and then to his seat without anyone being the wiser is anyone's guess.
3 - Rude Awakening
When the plane lands, there’s usually a mad rush of people trying to get off first, everyone lines the aisles and pushes and shoves, but for a few sleeping passengers, this wasn’t the case. In fact, a few travellers over the years have found themselves so tired, they didn’t wake up until well after the entire flight crew was long gone.
In 2010, a man named Kris Lines fell asleep on a flight from Calgary to Vancouver and didn’t wake up until around two hours after the plane had been emptied. He woke up to a ground crew performing routine maintenance on the aircraft. Both parties found themselves severely startled by the surprise meeting.
Later that same year, another passenger named Ginger McGuire fell into a deep sleep while on a one-hour flight from Dulles Virginia to Philadelphia, only to wake up three hours after the plane had landed to find herself locked inside the now abandoned aircraft. Several hours later, the terrified traveller was rescued by a cleaning crew.
But the real silliness of this situation was when the cleaning crew arrived, they asked her, “Don’t you have a cell phone?” When she said she did, the crew said, “Well, lady, why didn’t you bother calling for help? We could have rescued you hours ago.”
2 - Naked Revenge
By now it's been established that getting through airport security can be a real pain, most travelers will bite their tongues and take the abuse, but, over the years, there have been a few disgruntled passengers who have taken a stand and decided to make things more difficult for TSA officers.
One such airport security vigilante was a man passing through Portland International Airport named John Brennan. After getting frustrated at the slow process, John reached his breaking point and decided to strip down to his birthday suite to awaiting security guards.
The TSA officer was not amused, or grateful for the attempt to make his job easier, instead he became infuriated and ordered John to put back on his clothes immediately! When John refused, he was arrested for indecent exposure. And now for the best part, when John showed up to court he protested his conviction and 1,000 dollar fine, and the judge took his side and threw the case out. Seems like this judge had his own problems with TSA and was able to get revenge for himself and for John Brennan.
1 - Dangerous Piercings
In 2008, a woman attempting to board a flight from Lubbock to Dallas in Texas, went through the security gate to encounter a TSA agent with a hand-held detector, which began to beep as it grazed her chest.
The 37-year old woman named Mandi Hamlin tried to explain they she had nipple rings, but apparently, that explanation wasn't good enough for the female Transportation Security Administration agent who immediately called over her male colleagues. The passenger was informed that she would need to remove her body piercings before being allowed to board her flight. In tears and in front of a gaping public, Mandi attempted to remove her piercings.
Mandi has since reported that the male security agents were laughing at her during the entire embarrassing spectacle. The frustrated patron was so upset, she demanded a civil rights investigation into the matter. The last time we checked, nipple piercings weren’t dangerous weapons.
I don't wanna educate any idiots but... come one now, why do you need a weapon on your vacation???

I haven't been on an airplane since 1981, and I have no intention of ever getting on another one again. I would rather just take a car, and go across country to visit relatives. It just doesn't make any sense to me to have to get somewhere 2 hours before your flight, and then still take the risk of missing it because of incompetence. A perfect example of that is the distance between Phoenix and San Diego. It takes roughly 5 hours from the time you start until the time you get to San Diego. By that time I could get in my car and drive it as fast, and enjoy the drive while I'm at it.

I had a similar experience to the prosthetic boob
ive got a what should be non magnetic plate and screws in my head detector went off and I informed security of the implants it wasn't good enough they wanted to see it I said ok then book an OR and have them cut my head open again to prove it and jokingly said have them shave the lump off while they got me open . and I was denied acess for 4 hours before the supervisor showed up and said it was ok because he could feel the edge of the plate and now security at that airport knows me by name and im waved through what takes hours for most takes me 5 minutes tops being crippled gets me to the front of the line being a frequent flyer the only time im patted down is when the detector spikes higher like when I wear a brace that containes metal and even now if it spikes they ask if im wearing my brace I say yes they say ok and im on my way.

From the reports that I've read they were lucky to find that gun. According to reports people testing the system have been able to get many banned items thru TSA checkpoints including guns. I think the number I read was 30,000 banned items that havd made it thru. Sound like the TSA as a huge waste of money.
