Carrying a pocket knife may be a good thing ... unless you're absent-minded and do a lot of air travel. Then it's a very bad idea, especially if you can't raise enough cash to make bail.

When I am forced to fly commercial airlines -- once or twice a year -- I put my pocket knife in my checked luggage.

Too complicated for you?

You're always hearing about people getting busted for accidentally bringing weapons to airports. I don't know how it could happen either, but somehow it does. Maybe people who fly all the time, for example business travelers, can get forgetful.

Assuming that you do not live in airports, why even bring up the issue? Why go for the worst-case scenario?

Did you remember to wear your hiking helmet?
