4. Parody or truth? Many folks here have to fly in the next few days...
Are you saying they are loosening restrictions? If so, please specify.

Sorry, this is too serious to joke about right now.... :shrug:

9. What? No Dep or Dippity Do?
Doesn't the wind blow your hair when you open the plane window for some fresh air?

I haven't flown in a while.

48. Snakes? On a plane?
What about shakes? (due credit to the DUer who came up with Shakes on a Plane in another thread)? What if I give the shakes to the snakes? Or the snakes give me shakes? Will I need stakes for the snakes? Or do they prefer steaks?

Apologies if this is descending to a Dr. Seuss level, but TSA today was acting like they have the cognitive powers of three year olds.

22. Anyone have that picture of the kitty with the freaky punked out fur
which makes him look like he just chomped an extension cord? I used to see it periodically. I lost my copy when my computer crashed last fall.

34. *rolls eyes*
Don't know why it wasn't allowed in the first place. I can't think of much in the way of explosives that could pass for gel. . .

38. Me too. And I am flying somewhere four weeks from tomorrow.
I'd even drink out of the damn bottle to prove it's okay, but no...you have to fear blonde women terra-ists.

Fortunately, it's a short flight.
