One of the most entertaining Instagram accounts out there is maintained by Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which keeps a log of all the contraband it confiscates from passengers. They catch a lot of guns, ammunition, and knives, plus a whole bunch more.

In 2015, TSA officers screened 708,316,339 million passengers (over 1.9 million per day), which is almost 41 million more than in 2014. TSA also screened 1.6 billion carry-on bags, 432 million checked bags, and 12.9 million airport employees! 

Here are some of the more interesting things they—fortunately—found.
