Passengers in airports across the country are told to pour their liquids into bins as they go through security.
Because an official counter-terrorism statement told us of a plan that involved mixing sports drinks with a gel-like substances to concoct explosives.
If these liquids are potentially explosive why are we allowed to pour them into large bins inside overcrowded airports, thus mixing them all together?
“Sir, I’m going to have to take this bottle of water away from you since it might be a liquid explosive, and I’m going to have to mix it with all of these other bottles of possibly liquid explosive, and I’m going to have to dump them all in this trash can… together. Nevermind that the plot specifically mentions mixing chemicals and/or nitroglycerin… which explodes if handled too roughly.” – XOPL Blogger
