I Do hate emptying my pockets at airport security checks, people get to see all my mangly reciepts, old cigarette butts and bits of string. Why not just hand them the whole pocket? maybe some zip on zip off arrangement.

Don't they have these checks in some schools now? Could be the latest teen fashion.

Life swapping parties http://www.google.c...rights=&safe=images

       This could be extended as 'detachable lives'.   

       You swap pockets with someone else, keys, cards, handkerchieves, folded-up pieces of paper and all.   

       You spend an agreed period of time seeing what it's like to live in their house, drive their car, spend against their credit limit and call their phone list to make excuses for their appointments.   

       It would be a bit like identity theft, but mutual, and friendlier... if you like that sort of friend.   

       See also 'life-swapping parties'... I suppose.

       this would make pickpocketing a much much easier activity.
