Mid-Life Ramblings; Sanity Optional

Friday, September 01, 2006

Our Federal tax dollars at work

Here's the link to the newest TSA regulations on what is allowed to be in your carryon luggage on airplanes.

I'd like to call your attention to this section:

Non-prescription liquid or gel medicines like cough syrup and gel cap type pills - Up to 4 oz. of essential non-prescription liquid medications
Carryon Yes
Checked Yes

Personal lubricants - Up to 4 oz.

Carryon Yes
Checked Yes

Safety Razors - including disposable razors.
Carryon Yes
Checked Yes

Saline solution - You are allowed to carry up to 4 oz., of eye drops with you. Volumes greater than 4 oz., are only permitted in your checked baggage.

Carryon No
Checked Yes

Am I the only one that thinks the TSA doesn't understand that I'm much more likely to have an emergency involving saline solution than I am involving personal lubricants?

    My favorite:

    "Gel-filled bras and similar prosthetics - Gel-filled bras may be worn through security screening and aboard aircraft."

    Which is why you might require the lube.
