Lily Sussman’s MacBook Got Shot 3 Times, But The Hard Drive Survived

Lily Sussman is a U.S. citizen that went vacationing in Israel to visit family and check out the attractions. When she arrived at the airport in Israel, there was no way that she would have expected to have her MacBook get shot three times.

Sussman was pulled aside from airport security and they read through her journal and looked through some of the pictures on her digital camera. One of the pictures in her digital camera was of graffiti. Some of the graffiti included the word “f**k” next to a Jewish star of David. After seeing that image, airport security took her things and left Sussman alone.

Shortly afterwards, an announcement at the airport was made: “do not to be alarmed by gunshots because the Israeli security needs to blow up suspicious passenger luggage.” Instead of blowing up Sussman’s luggage, they shot her MacBook three times and gave it back to Sussman.

Sussman panicked because she was worried about the files on her computer. Fortunately for her, the hard drive survived! What this proves is that a MacBook can get shot and survive, but they cannot stand the wrath of rapper and actor Ice-T.
