When I have to fly on a plane, I go through TSA with trepidation. Perhaps I should lighten up as I've found at least 58 things you can totally take on a Missouri plane without being busted and cuffed by an agent.

I am not making up this list. This comes directly from the United States Transportation Administration. The government doesn't leave you guessing if you have to travel to St. Louis Lambert International Airport. You can see everything the allow (and some they don't) through their TSA checkpoints:

Here are a few things that are on the no-no list that surprised me. Magic 8-Ball? Don't try it. You are not allowed to predict the future with a black 8-ball in the air. Also note that you can take a bowling ball, but NOT bowling pins. Forget trying to pick up a spare in the aisle with that bowling ball you can legally carry.

You also cannot bring your canoe with you as a carry-on no matter how hard you want to try. You also are barred from packing cooking spray with you to make that airline food easier to deal with. (*frown face*) No cutting boards as a carry-on either. Bummer.

It's a good idea to check the TSA screening website for details as to what's legit and what's not. Just know if you're carrying a Harry Potter want, I will be giving you a very hard time.
