Forbes: The TSA's Fake Liquids Rule
Do they have a list of priorities for finding "prohibited" items that goes something like this (ranked 1-13 by order of their theatrical importance):
1. Breast prosthesis
2. Ostomy bags
3. Insulin and insulin pumps
4. Incontinence and female sanitary products
5. Prosthetic limbs
6. Illegal drugs
8. Breast milk
9. Cupcakes in jars
10. Small harmless tools
13. Incendiary devices
Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
ETA: I may have the order of importance wrong, come to think of it. I should have put Cash as #1 (all the better for them to steal ...er... confiscate... it) and Illegal drugs as #2 (all the better for them to steal ...er...confiscate... those, too).
I hope you left this comment at Forbes.
Don't forget iPads. Plural.
Great catch! *ahem* Sorry, I couldn't resist.
It will be added to the list.
The reason they don't always and consistently make each and every travel remove the liquids bag is to keep the t-wrists on their toes! This unpredictability confuses the bad guys.
Maybe the list should include "human dignity". They really seem to have a declared war on that.
