Security theatre rules; we had a discussion about whether my hair chopsticks count as a dangerous weapons during which I wasn't allowed to retrieve my passport - which you now have to put with your coat rather than keeping in your hand. I indicated that I wasn't going back to check a bag, demanded an envelope to post them home - and suddenly the rules had changed answer they were allowed. I got waved past the show scanner and went to boggle at the Philips Swarovski in-ear headphones which have huge shiny crystals on. I've been waiting for electronic jewellery for years but it's still borderline ugly.
