An airport dilemma-What would *YOU* do?


Airline passenger Anton Gerasimov enjoys the last drink of his champagne before boarding a flight to Russia, Thursday, Aug. 10, 2006, at San Francisco International Airport in San Francisco. Growing lines of irritated travelers snaked through U.S. airport terminals Thursday as people waited hours to reach security checkpoints, where they were ordered to dump all liquids, water bottles, suntan lotion, even toothpaste, following the discovery of a terror plot involving planes leaving Britain.

10. That is what my wife said
We agreed that of course you trash the cologne/perfume but we had a laugh at how some people threw away some expensive stuff yesterday.

5. Actually -according to what we are being told- they accounted for that
the terrorists had bottles that had a seperation in them so that the top WAS the Gatorade type liquid and the explosive was on the bottom. Unless the screener watched really carefully they could have passed the test.
