So there is an Instagram account that is run by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration), and on a regular basis they upload photos of some of the items they confiscate and the items they find will leave you speechless. You name it, they have seen it, including items such as Batman throwing knives, novelty alarm clocks that look like bombs, and plenty of weapons such as knives, blades, samurai swords and grenades.

All of these items were found in peoples hand luggage that they carry onto the planes themselves...

1. Smoke grenades should be ok, right?
