  • »It takes the lotion out of the hand luggage or else it gets the hose again!«
    • I think the modern security theatre at the airports is ridiculous. I'm glad I've read enough about its ridiculousness on the web so that I can pass through it with a smile inside, while my exterior does all the motions asked of me. It's like a little dance, a bit like bees do, but this one is called "we'd like to show we care about security" rather than "where's the funky nectar?".

      Oh, and if I have to be without my hand lotion for an hour while we're in the sky, it's really no big deal. But to even imply that it might pose a serious security threat by being a liquid bomb, that's taking leave of what we usually refer to as sanity. Either it's not a liquid bomb, or we should seriously consider moving away from it slowly, instead of debating whether I have to check in my hand luggage.

      Maybe I just showed my deep ignorance of liquid bombs. Maybe it doesn't go off until you twist the lid or something. I guess I'll learn that when the next action film features a plane terrorist with a tube of hand lotion.
