Vopnaleit į komufaržegum į Leifsstöš

Kom fyrir fįeinum dögum śr stuttri Bandarķkjareisu, ķ fyrsta sinn ķ fjögur įr sem ég fer vestur um haf. ŽVķ var žaš aš ég kynntist žvķ nś ķ fyrsta skipti aš eftir aš Amerķkufaržegar ganga frį borši žurfa žeir aš fara ķ gegnum vopnaleit, į undan vegabréfaskošuninni. Mįlmleitarhliš, skönnun į öllum handfarangri, af meš föt, hald lagt į vatnsflöskur, meš tilheyrandi bišröšum, töfum og leišindum.

Hvers slags dómadags vitleysa er žetta? Ég var frekar śrillur eftir flugiš, gat ekkert sofiš enda lķtiš hęgt aš halla sętum ķ nżju fķnu flugvélunum. Žegar ég var bešinn um aš taka af mér belti spurši ég starfsmanninn kurteislega hvernig stęši į žessu. "Viš höfum nś gert žetta ķ mörg įr", svaraši hann, en bętti svo viš: "Ę, žaš veršur blöndun į faržegum og eitthvaš svona rugl". (Man žetta ekki alveg nįkvęmlega, en žetta var svona efnislega žaš sem hann sagši.)

Blöndun į hvaša faržegum?  Žaš eru ENGIR faržegar į žessu svęši flugstöšvarinnar sem ekki hafa žegar fariš ķ gegnum vopnaleit einu sinni hiš minnsta.

Af hverju žarf fólk aš žola svona vita tilgangslausa vitleysu? Ef meiningin er aš skapa atvinnu er nęr aš borga öryggisvöršunum fyrir aš gera eitthvaš gagnlegt, eša jafnvel bara fyrir aš lesa góšar bękur og drekka kaffi, en ekki fyrir aš gera beinlķnis ógagn.

Kannski žetta sé framtķšin?

Žoli ekki žetta hliš. "Welcome to Schengen".

Žaš er svo margt vitlaust viš žetta öryggisfargan allt ķ flugstöšvum. Žaš eru hirtir brśsar af vökva, sama hvaša vökva, vegna žess aš žeir geta veriš sprengifimir. Hvaš er svo gert viš žį? Žeim er kastaš ķ tunnu fulla af öšrum brśsum sem gętu veriš fullir af einhverju sprengifimu efni. Žaš hefur enginn įhyggjur af žvķ.

Flug kallar nś upp mynd ķ hugskoti mķnu af blįum latexhönskum.

Ekki minnast ógrįtandi į vökvabanniš, žaš er önnur vitleysan, algjörlega tilgangslaus og eingöngu til ama. Eykur ekki öryggi fyrir fimmaur. Reglunni var komiš į hér um įriš žegar hópur hryšjuverkamanna ķ London sem nįšist hafši gert įętlanir um aš bśa til sprengjur umborš ķ faržegaflugvélum. Mįliš er aš žessar įętlanir žeirra voru ķ stuttu mįli langt ķ frį framkvęmanlegar. Um žetta mį lesa vķša į netinu. Bendi t.d. į žessa grein:Mass Murder in the Skies: was the Plot Feasible?

Žetta segir einn bloggari:

The "binary liquid explosives" scare of two years ago was a classic scam, employed by an administration intent on demonizing a section of society, while simultaneously scaring the public by broadcasting bogus threats and falsehoods via a complicit media. Any qualified chemist must have had an attack of hysterics at the idea of someone manufacturing triacetone triperoxide (TATP) while on a commercial plane!

 Og annar skżrir betur:

The two types of liquids proposed for use in the London plot are TATP & HMTD. Anyone with college level chemistry knowledge know this is a moronic method. Can’t be done easily. See below:

The explosive is easily made from three colourless liquids- hydrogen peroxide, which is common in antiseptic solutions, acetone, which is commonly used as a paint thinner and nail polish remover, and sulfuric acid, which is available from many sources as a battery electrolyte and drain cleaner.

But let’s be a little bit more critical here. You have to keep all of these three liquids separate from each other until you want to make TATP. You have to use highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide, which is not nice stuff at all- after all, it maimed and killed thousands of people during the Second World War, when the Nazis used it as oxidizer for their A-4 engines. It also gasses off oxygen constantly and reacts aggressively with plastics of all kinds, which makes carrying it anywhere a challenge. You have to use hydrogen peroxide at least a hundred times more concentrated than that which is used as a hair bleach. Oh, and peroxides are already banned in air travel. You have to mix the acetone with the hydrogen peroxide during the reaction, which is actually the hard part. Acetone plus hydrogen peroxide is actually a hypergolic reaction at room temperature. You have to keep the stuff cold to stop it reacting and producing water, carbon dioxide and heat. Oh, and the reaction when you add the sulfuric acid is strongly exothermic.

Then you need to filter and dry the product, and probably use a blasting cap to detonate it. Interestingly, one mole of explosive will produce three moles of cold gas; this means that for a couple of litres of reagent, the most gas that can possibly be produced is just over 75 litres. I can’t see that producing significant overpressure in a modern widebody jet of volume many hundreds of thousands of litres.

Can we please use some SCIENCE, before we make policy!?!?!

Žetta meš blöndunina žżšir ķ raun aš Evrópusambandiš telur aš öryggisgęsla į bandarķskum flugvöllum er žaš léleg aš žaš sé ekki į žaš hęttandi aš hleypa fólki žašan inn į Schengen-svęšiš įn žess aš gera sitt eigiš tékk.

Enda vita žaš allir sem hafa feršast til USA aš öryggistékkiš žar er mannaš meš starfsfólki sem er of heimskt til aš vinna į McDonalds ...
