Some clown tried to sneak a knife onto a plane inside a gaming laptop

On Friday, November 11th, 2022, someone tried to sneak a double-bladed knife onto an airplane hidden inside a gaming laptop. The incident took place at Richmond International Airport in Richmond, Virginia, and was foiled by officers of the United States Transportation Security Administration—more commonly known as the TSA.

The laptop, which our colleagues at Tom’s Hardware (opens in new tab) note was neither “a Razer Blade or an MSI Sword,” looks to have been a Gigabyte Aorus notebook with entirely–too-dusty uncleaned fans. If you’re going to open up a laptop to hide a knife in it, why not at least give it a little spritz of compressed air while you’re in there?
