Here's a Question...

WHY ARE AIRPORT security screening machines not calibrated the same way? Is Nice safer than Geneva? I ask this because when I walk through the airport screening machine each week in Nice I can wear my watch without getting 'buzzed," but when I go through the machine on my way home in Geneva my watch sets of the alarm.

What's the deal with that?

Another tid-bit I'd like to mention about my air travel is that Easy Jet is now serving Starbuck's coffee on some of their flights. That may be the best thing that has happened in in-flight comfort since smoking was banned on all flights. If the cup of coffee didn't cost 2.50 EUR it would be even better.

I bet you wouldn't buzz in Marseille either.

leave it to the Swiss to calibrate more precisely...

Same with the shoes. In some you need to remove. Other's, leave them on. That's not so much the machine as the level of security. Personally, with three kids, I'll risk it and choose to leave them on.
