The terrorists have won.

Dimensio: Coco LaFemme: super_grass: Coco LaFemme: If this isn't the ultimate symbol of how the terrorist have well and truly defeated us, then.....I don't know what else would be.  Maybe mandatory cavity searches before boarding any form of transportation.  They didn't want to just scare us, they wanted to completely alter our way of life, and they succeeded.  So fark them for doing it, and fark us for letting them get away with it.  Rather than pulling up our pants and getting on with life, we've become a country of scared pussies, flinching every time a car backfires somewhere, letting strangers grope us at the airport, and allowing the federal government to run rough-shod over our liberties because they deem it necessary.

So an entire terminal getting evacuated over a tube of farking toothpaste makes perfect goddamn sense in this new America.

Your point would be what?  I can't stand Ron Paul and think he's a farking lunatic.  That doesn't mean anything I said was factually incorrect.

You are attempting to reason with a known psychopath.

Thanks for the heads-up.  He must be new.

Latinwolf: As long as you don't have duct tape wrapped around something that shouldn't have it in the first place, you'll be fine.

If you can't use duct tape, how else will you keep your sock from falling off?

mr_fulano: Another argument for naked flights. Combine this with weighing people to determine the ticket price, and you will have the start of Beautiful Naked People Airlines (BNPA).

cmb53208: What a sad bunch of chickenshiats we've become

No kidding.  Big, chest-beating USA is terrified of toothpaste.  Even Canada is giggling.

TSA stands for Toothpaste, Shaving Cream and Aftershave--they were just doing their job. I mean really how can you say you don't feel much safer knosing they are on the job?

staplermofo: Guys, it was tube of toothpaste with duct tape wrapped around it.
Nothing can escape duct tape, not even explosives.
Woah, wait a minute, what if sprayed the explosion with WD-40?  OH GOD, what have I done?  Nothing is safe now.

What happens when duct tape comes into contact with WD-40? Perhaps the combination of the two will create a singularity that births the next Chuck Norris.

something something Home of the Brave something...

I was going to go with Obama's pronouncement that "Americans will never allow themselves to be terrorized," but the hypocrisy of our sacred cow of a national anthem was a little better.  We are a nation of bedwetters, after all.

With something named Arm & Hammer toothpaste, you are asking for trouble.

They never have this problem at Gatwick or Heathrow.

aiiee: I'm sure if they had put you in charge things would have been very different..

Yes. Yes, they would have.
