    you can't be too careful, that said, this is a daily occurence at LAX, there's bomb scares every single day there, just don't hear it about it every single day and of course they're usually all nothing - its just a high - alert airport with good reason imo

    Not only do I NOT find Tefillin threatening, I appreciate their non-stick properties.

    yeah but its just like, there's no room for aberration when it comes to commercial air travel now-a-days. you just have to be a robot basically going from one point to another to another and follow orders as they're given - as unnatural for humans as that can be, otherwise you can face the consequences

    I mean i've said time in time again, yeah im treated like crap sometimes at the airports, but i just take it, whatever they say you got to do it these days. its not worth getting arrested over and ruining my whole trip at the very least

    In light of the heightened levels of security, it may serve these men to let the staff know they will be praying in advance.

    ^ yeah, I have a phobia of flying, i even have nightmares about it often and I'm always afraid to do the sign of the cross thingy that I do out of superstition all the time, I do when no one's looking and real quick like but it comforts me a little. still, I dont want to scare anyone or anyone to get the wrong idea.

    back in the day it was fine to do that on that plane i'm guessing cuz when my grandma would go from new york back to puerto rico (it can be a rough ride) all these older puerto rican ladies would do their hail Marys over and over again or when it would get rough right there before landing.

    Why would anyone get the wrong idea from you crossing yourself? I always used to do it before takeoff and after landing when I was little and I see people do it all the time in flights.

    I gotta say, I live near an Orthodox Jewish community--I see orthodox men dressed in their traditional garb and yarmulkes walking on the weekends all the time. But I've never seen these tefillin boxes. I think it's a just a small detail that many people might understandably miss and never know about if they don't bother to find out. I don't think it's about people being woefully ignorant, just never been exposed to it is all.

    But I do hate the way airport security just overreacts at every little thing. I'm panic-prone to some things too, but I still don't see the value of freaking out on a plane.

    I can see these things are popular outside the orthodox jewish community, too.

    If I saw those outfits on a plane, I'd get nervous.

    its just the times we live in! I'm paranoid to do or say anything out of the "norm", I don't want to scare anyone or being attention to myself. and people associate doing prayers to terrorists cuz they do they shit apparantly before they go apeshit and take down a plane, sons of bitches! no god is gonna take your ass to heaven fyi
