How to Fly Through Airport Security

Travel. Is there any bigger pain in the ass?

At the end of this week I'll be winging my way to New York city via Virgin America to catch the beginning of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, and although I love the Big Apple and all the wonders held therein, I truly loathe the flying process. You've got the lines, the long waits for overpriced, under par food, flight delays, crying kids, uncomfortable accommodations, yadda yadda yadda. But of all these inconveniences which are now a reality of the miracle that is modern day transport, security checks are the only part that aren't a total crapshoot. At the security line, we all have a nugget of control.

So, in honor of pending travel plans everywhere, I offer a few fool proof ways to get through airport security faster, happier and almost unmolested.
