checked luggage im afraid, along with any type of scissors, sharp pointed objects etc
this from the virgin site
Toy or replica guns (plastic or metal)
Knives with blades (of any length)
Billiard, snooker, pool cues
Cigarette lighters including butane, absorbed-fuel (Zippo-type), electric/battery-powered and novelty lighters (for passengers travelling to and from all Caribbean destinations and India)

Yeah cos loads of people have been killed wif Disney pins stabbing them......
I take syringes in the cabin with me every trip. :unsure: Not traveling internationally though. At least not yet. And I would keep them with me then, too though. :unsure:
Don't forget about the shampoo, and other personal items that are liquid. We'd not want you to clean someone to death either. Anything over 3 ounces (some airports allow 3.4) must be in checked baggage.

Clean someone to death! :lol::lol::lol:
Tradesmans tools? OMG! He's coming at me with a paintbrush!
Well, you know shampoo in the eye can be a deadly weapon. Or a good face full of hairspray can knock a terrorist right out. But if you really want to do damage pouf your powder at them from the container. A cloud of white dust will send them right into a fainting spell! :yes:
Not only the paint brushes, but those rollers too! :lipwobble:
Yet knitting needles are not forbidden in cabins. Yep. I understand that. :rolleyes:

how would one pack a catapult on their carry on?
Sir? What is that?
Oh its my catapult....
LOL! I always interpreted that prohibition to mean that sling shots were not allowed? :unsure: Not positive if that is the real case, but it was the only thing my mind could conjure up that made the least bit of sense.
Seth does have a little catapult with his castle set though. Wonder if that would be disallowed in the cabin? :lol:

Well my pins, shampoo and catapult are safely packed in my suitcase. Some things are self explanatory but others seem odd.

Is that a catapult in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
I kill myself!
