    In the wake of the foiled terrorist plot.

    Anyone see anything wrong with the sign on the right?

    Doesn't that mean NO "no liquids" - ie no banning liquids?

    Where's the double negative? The "No" is in the other paper.

    What you don't see are the airport police manuvering into an assault position behind that girl with the bottled water.

    This just reaffirms why I DON'T fly. Before 9-11, I was treated by airport security like the Chief Terrorist simply because I carry a "fancy" phone and sometimes a PDA.

    Before 9-11, my Mom and I drove to Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix to pickup my sister-in-law so she could be present for a hearing at the Maricopa County Courthouse for my oldest brother. She, my MOTHER, had a SWITCHBLADE KNIFE in her purse, in clear view, as she placed her purse on that x-ray machine's conveyor belt. She went right through security, and proceeded down the terminal, proceeding to carry on a conversation with me.

    Well, there I WAS, stuck at the terminal showing the security guards that, yes, my cellphone (which at the time took a minute or so) was real and turned on. I also had to do the same with my PDA, which only took a few seconds. I also had to empty my pockets and had to do everything short (mind you, before 9-11) of taking off my shoes. By the time I caught up to my Mother, she was halfway through her conversation.

    I should note that TSA employees have gravel for brains. All they know is that the government gave them the authority to search people and that they can decide who does and doesn't enter the boarding area of the airport.

    ...and that's IT. I've yet to meet a TSA employee who is not a fucking idiot.

    That would work. They send everyone into a changing area. You strip down and put on a long hospital-type gown while you put your clothes into a carry-on bag. You enter the plane, buckle in, and as the plane starts to take off, they fill the cabin with sleeping gas. So, while the plane is flying, all passengers are out cold. When you land, they fill the cabin with oxygen or something and everyone wakes up. You leave the plane, go into another changing area, put on your clothes and go about your day.

    I, personally, love this idea. No crappy inflight movie, no crying babies, and what would feel like an instant flight. If the plane goes down, hey, you're asleep, no terror, nothing. Just one endless dream.
