    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
    7. Cash
    8. Breast milk
    9. Cupcakes in jars
    10. Small harmless tools
    11. Weapons
    12. Explosives
    13. Incendiary devices
    13. Liquids
    Makes you wonder, doesn't it?:confused:

    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 confiscate... it) and Illegal drugs as #2 (all the better for them to steal those, too).

    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.
