Teknowaffle: Well to be fair, the whole liquid rule came about because of the brits in August 2006.
highendmighty: And how many more 9/11's have there been since the ban?OK then.
Mega Steve: You're next, pork chops!
buckler: I have a rock you may wish to buy.

LessO2: In fairness, the liquid lunacy started in 2006.The knee-jerk reaction to that was to ban ALL liquid...even beverages purchased airside and given on airplanes. Then, capitalism reared its ugly head and then all of those for-profit liquids were suddenly deemed safe.Fact of the matter is, TSA does have equipment to test liquids, but the process of testing is slow and arcane. The reason we have to remove our laptops and shoes is because we as passengers have to continually adapt to the TSA's shortcomings in screening people.But the TSA has changed their uniforms four times in 10 years, which shows where their real priorities are.
CruJones: I fly a lot. I now just bring a bottle that I fill at a water fountain past security, instead of buying a $6 Sprite. (no caffeine, I sleep on flights). Some airports have special bottle filling stations./just bring three of those little small applesauce containers under 3oz//applesauce?
highendmighty: buckler: highendmighty: And how many more 9/11's have there been since the ban?OK then.I have a rock you may wish to buy.Thank you for allowing me to desire to buy a rock. Although I have never heard your phrase and I have no idea what you're talking about.

QueenMamaBee: /CSBI inadvertently brought applesauce on the plane home from Myrtle Beach. Didn't realize I still had some squeeze applesauce of my son's until on we were in the air. On the other hand, the TSA flipped out because I had "large canister shaped items" in my camera bag. Hmm, could they be lenses perhaps? Nah, better yank me out of line for the Spanish Inquisition because I have large canisters and am darker than a cafe latte.//end CSB

It was a small squeeze pack, probably under 3oz.Still packed some extremely dangerous camera lenses.
hitlersbrain: I had to give up a pair of nail scissors in my carry on a few years ago. Then I got on the plane and ordered a coffee. They gave me a 5 inch, hard plastic stirring stick with a end sharp enough that I could easily have stabbed someone to death with it./ Too much, Too late.
Cantankerous Gnome: highendmighty: And how many more 9/11's have there been since the ban?OK then.Wouldn't that be 1 every year?
Krieghund: I don't know where subby got the idea that the post 9-11 (or post 2006) increased security measures were supposed to be temporary./yes, it's security theater.//but it makes enough grandmas feel safe enough to fly that the airline industry hasn't gone bankrupt///yes it only catches morons////but you'd have to be a moron to blow up a plane you're on.
Shadowknight: [H]e idea that he could take down the plane without the aid of that butter knife, namely by simply pushing the stick forward and closing his eyes, or that there were literally dozens more of them waiting on the very plane he was about to go fly completely eluded the TSA agent.
Altair: No applesauce? Think of the children!
whidbey: We really need to quit cleaning up the Bush administration's mess and dissolve the TSA.The only reason they have power is because Bush farked up and didn't read ignored the intel that the biggest attack on US soil since Pearl Harbor was imminent.
