[Attendee]

What do you do?

[Aajonus]

If you want to get beyond that, you take quite a few little small three ounce bottles. You can have six or seven of them as long as they fit into a one-quart ziplock bag. So, three ounces of milk.

[Attendee]

Can I put two eggs in each?

[Aajonus]

You can do that. Yeah.

[Attendee #2]

What if you wanna bring food for your trip? Like some ceviche or some butter, and now they're getting some stricter and not even letting you take. They confiscated my ceviche last time, six months before that they didn't.

[Aajonus]

Well, if it's wet and liquid, they're gonna take it. Anything that's like at all, wet.

[Attendee #2]

Anything that's like at all wet, yogurt.

[Attendee]

So, you can't bring milk?

[Aajonus]

You can take milk in a three ounce container, many three ounce containers.

[Attendee]

Check the cooler?

[Aajonus]

No, cuz the radiation is very heavy in those machines.

[Attendee]

So, is there any way around it? Letter? Doctor?

[Aajonus]

Yes. You can have a doctor's letter. I take a whole half a gallon every time I go.

But I've got a doctor's letter.

[Attendee #2]

He told me, I don't care if you have a doctor's, this is as much as you can eat on the plane. That's it. That's what he said.

[Aajonus]

Well, I tell them I eat two quarts on the plane. I'll say I'm diabetic, I was diagnosed as diabetic. That's what my doctor's letter said. It doesn't say I still have diabetes. It says I was diagnosed as diabetic. So, he asked to eat every hour.

[Attendee #2]

They let you bring in larger containers?

[Aajonus]

I'll take two of these and I'll take two of these.

I have my bag and I take it out and hand my doctor's letter.

[Attendee #2]

Did they x-ray did it?

[Aajonus]

Most of the time they don't.

[Attendee]

Do you take your green drink and your meat?

[Aajonus]

I usually have my green drink in the morning.

[Attendee]

Do you take your eggs whole and the egg shells?

[Aajonus]

They say are these hard boiled? And I say they're as hard as I want them.

[Attendee]

What if they weren't hardboiled, what would they care?

[Aajonus]

Cause it's liquid. I know they're stupid. They are really ridiculous.

[Attendee #2]

Have you had good success? I mean, most of the time?

[Aajonus]

When I leave Los Angeles I would say 75% of the time they don't scan my food. They never take my food away from me. They don't wanna be responsible for a diabetic incident. There's no way they want be responsible for a diabetic.

[Attendee]

I should use mine to my advantage to get a note for my doctor that I'm diabetic.

[Attendee #2]

But you're not a diabetic?

[Aajonus]

No, no, no. My doctor said I was diagnosed as diabetic.

[Attendee]

I could say the same thing?

[Aajonus]

Right. Were you taking insulin at some time? Were you diabetic? Were you diagnosed as diabetic? Okay. I was, I took insulin from 15.5 to 20.

No, I'm not anymore.

[Attendee #3]

So, what about people who have never been diabetic? Is there another solution?

[Aajonus]

Little small bottles. That's it.

[Attendee]

When I was there last time, I've got real problems. So, I bring a note from the doctor. He said no way. He said, I don't care what you bring, you're not taking it.

[Aajonus]

These are lackies. You get supervisor.

[Attendee]

I've had to change airports and I have what I need and I've had it all taken from me. And I've asked for supervisors and I've said, I'm diabetic.

[Aajonus]

You have to take a letter.

[Attendee]

I can try to, but I'm afraid after all this happening, I'm afraid that, that the letter won't mean anything.

[Aajonus]

It works for everybody I know that takes a letter.

[Attendee]

Let's just say that we can't take anything on the plane.

Any suggestions to help us get through a long plane way?

[Aajonus]

You can take your three ounce bottles.

As long as what you have fits in a ziploc quart bottle, you can take as many as you want.

[Attendee]

You can't have it done x-ray though?

[Aajonus]

No, they'll have to have an x-ray, but when you put it through the x-ray, you let everything go through, everything behind it. You wait until your food has gone through. You hold up the line.

[Attendee]

What do you mean?

[Aajonus]

Because if they've got a bag in front that they're going to sit and look at for two minutes and decide whether they're going to inspect it and your food's right behind it, that's gonna get bombarded.

So you let that pass through. And if he's sitting and waiting, you know that that's the last one. Then you put your food on there when he starts it up again, your food's gonna go through and they'll just pass through cause there won't be any metal.

[Attendee]

I always thought I was nuts for doing that.

[Aajonus]

No, that's what I do. And then after I know that he's okayed it nothing goes on that. My next luggage doesn't go on that belt until I know he's okayed it and it's passing through and the belt's moving. Yeah, but there's metal on the control. One important thing.

[Attendee]

I put it in my big suitcase that I checked and put it in coolers and packed it well, and randomly they choose maybe every fourth one to unzip, and look at, which mine has been that, and they've even found all my grapes. I've checked a lot of food and gotten it through. It's just on the plane.

[Aajonus]

Then you've got high, high radiation.

[Attendee]

It's higher there than it is in the?

[Aajonus]

Oh, it's extremely high.

[Attendee]

I have a Cola that I make and I can check it in as luggage, and I tell 'em it says food. I don't want you x-ray we can open it up and inspect it now, if you let it go, but you have to do that when you come into the airport at the front,

[Aajonus]

Yes. You have to do that, and you have to do that at the desk, at the desk. That's what I do when I go to China, when I'm taking 30 pounds of butter and all kinds of other things with me.

[Attendee]

You take a cooler. Is that what you said?

[Aajonus]

Yeah, I take a cooler.

And then I go to the desk and I say, I need you to hand check this, and pass it through.

[Attendee]

So, the radiation's not in the plane where the luggage department is?

[Aajonus]

No, it's the, x-ray, big huge machine they have. I mean, it puts out like 50 x-rays worth in one shot as your luggage passes through.

So, if you've got any food in that, it's highly radioactively charge, your mineral's in it.

[Attendee]

I'm a part of a small team. Main team comes in from Tokyo. We treat mostly physicians who have less than eight or nine days to live. They've already had chemo. They've had radiation, they've had surgery that really need to be carried in, and so I have to go through this with this young lady every time I go through the airport and I do ask for the supervisor.

If he hassles me, I take heavy weight, a little foil and wrap it into exactly what you say, clear the dead, let him run through and it seems to work each time. And I mean, it may hassle them, but what seems to do the most is when the line backs up. They don't like the pressure from the line. So they usually say, okay, let's go.

[Aajonus]

Well, it depends upon, some personalities and some people can get it through easily. Always ask for a supervisor. Cause the lackies are told and these are lackies. They have no brains. If you have a brain, you're not in TSA. Seems to be a rule. So, you have to get a supervisor to get any, but most of 'em will tell you no, unless you have a letter.

So, your safe way is just little three ounce bottles if you want to take your liquid. They're just gonna think it's shampoo.

[Attendee]

Are they plastic or not plastic though? Some are glass.

[Aajonus]

Glass is nice if you can get glass.

[Attendee]

But there is metal on top.

[Aajonus]

That's fine.

[Attendee]

Is plastic alright?

[Aajonus]

Well it's okay for a short trip.

Well, it doesn't show up as something alarming.
