Airport Scanners Can See Through Everything – Except Paper

Like many people out there, you may have to travel via airplane this holiday season. But while you’re packing gifts into your metal, bulletproof Samsonite luggage set, you better make sure that they remain unwrapped.

That’s right. You see, while the super-sensitive, able-to-penetrate-Kevlar (and your underwear) rays can see through just about anything, they apparently can’t see through wrapping paper.

If you have wrapped gifts, be prepared for the TSA to not only rip the presents apart, but you as well.

Sure, I’d rather be safe than sorry when it comes to flying, but really? Wrapping paper? So you’re telling me I have to pack wrapping paper, tape and scissors? Isn’t that like the TSA advising you to pack a weapon? Sounds like fun.

Happy flying, everyone!
