My StoryBox had a tougher time getting passed the TSA at the Buffalo airport. They were extremely curious, though I did learn it was a mistake to refer to it as a "PIrate Box" which raised their curiosity to code yellow.

Actually it was not a huge hassle. On my last 3 trips, it went through unquestioned. On my flight out, they got stuck on a small metal pen that supposedly looked bullet like. Before that, it was my harmonica which set them off.

The fear is consistent if the methods are not.

I thought for future trips I would print out the PirateBox wiki page. All I need to say, "It is an artistic provocation, man. I am making art, damnit!"

But now it is perched happily in the US Airways club. It wants a beer.

(Note, given the contrast with the bright light out the window, this was a multiple exposure shot merged in Photomatix Pro as an HDR image).
