What about bodily fluids on planes... I mean
didn't they consider the possibility that some crafty terrorist could possibly line their mucous with explosives?

:sarcasm:

We are mostly water -- that is liquid. By the definition of this new TSA restriction, human beings are no longer allowed on aircraft.

1. As long as you can sip it and prove it is not lethal
like that urine your carrying around.

5. Are such explosives always immediately lethal?
I mean, if someone's committed to being a suicide bomber, they're hardly going to be worried about the long term (or even medium term) effects of what they consume. Any chemical they can drink that doesn't produce immediate symptoms can get through the 'drink test.'

14. I think most things that will blow up will hit your system pretty fast.
It may even be the look on your face they're watching, or both. Do you grimace like you're taking a shot of bad whiskey when ostensibly sipping "gatorade?" That would certainly be a tell.

2. Notice that the "liquid explosives" aspect of the story is being
left behind in favor of a conspiracy involving guys with ME names and nothing more specific

3. Precious bodily fluids
Step to the side sir, unzip your pants and expel all your precious bodily fluids in this secure urinal please. Ok, this one checks out. Next!

4. Maybe someone will take concentrated sodium pills
that would dissolve on the stomach, and the sodium reacts with water in the body, then BOOM!

6. I bet people could stuff liquid filled balloons up
their asses. I demand body cavity searches, it's the only way we can
be safe!!!

9. You and I must have had the same thought at the same time but you
beat me to the post. When they said it could only take milliliters, that is the first thing I thought of.

7. I would be more concerned about body cavities, especially females.
I mean, are they x-raying everyone. If it is only milliliters that can cause an explosion large enough to bring down a plane, then couldn't a terrorist shove it up their a** (female Vagina and a**) and then once the plane is over the ocean, squeeze their butt cheeks and BOOMB? :sarcasm:

Maybe not so far fetched after all. :shrug:

12. some people have really roomy rectums
about 15 years ago i read a news story of a petty thief type dude arrested for stealing chips off the dice table and, er, secreting them in a very personal orifice

by the time he was arrested, he had $150 of chips crammed up there -- in red and white! i don't recall the exact breakdown any more, i seem to remember it was approximately 9 inches of stack, but to give you an idea an entire tray of white chips is only $100

and heck, women can get entire babies in and out of their, er, private areas

i think i'm going to cry
