(if this should be in politics, please move it) So, I am sure everyone has heard about todays events. Direct quote from yahoo! news said: "U.S. authorities banned the carrying of liquids onto flights after the arrest of 24 people in an alleged plot to blow up U.S.-bound planes using explosives disguised as drinks and other common products." There were reports of throwing out such things as fine wine, and fine perfumes, such as chanel no. 5, some of these things are NOT cheap, and I would prolly have been very pissed. granted, in some airports, they actually payed postage for people to send their items home. my main concern is, just because these 24 people tried to blow up a plane with mountian dew, how do you know I don't have a bomb in my cheese nips?? and they are gonna be so concerned with my gator-ade they won't even notice my cheese nips. like someone said in the customs post, they put weed in a deoderent stick, so how do you know my bomb isn't underneath the cheese nips that I'm eating... A close friend of the family was in the hospital when this happened, and her son is one of the high ranking people that work for the government, dealing with national security. my grandmother has a hard time explaining this stuff to me, but yea, anyways, he was by her side in the hospital and when he get the call about it, he jumped up and ran off without saying a word. I dunno, they say you can't be overly cautious, but it seems like they are sometimes. if you are soooo concerned about one thing, something else might be right under your nose, and you may never notice it. whatever they did to catch the people to begin with, is what they need to keep doing, but soon, people arn't even gonna wanna ride airplanes.... mmmk, I'm just rambling on now, so I'll stop.
