    Default So at the airport this morning...

    ... going through security before me was mother and baby not 3 or 4 months old I'd say. She was told she'd have to give up her breast milk, which she had in this bottle - she was not having it.

    So she opened the bottle a downed it there before me. The look on the security gals face was fantastic, almost like the invisible man had just performed the heimlich manoeuvre

    I just don't need this first thing on a Monday morning.

    Indeed - the terrorists are winning, aided by twats in government and total twats at airport security who change the rules every five minutes for no reason

    Agree. Today was the full bunna. Shoes, belt, me mac, toiletries, jacket and the buzzer still went off cause of headphones in my pocket.

    Full body search ensued (must have been that unshaven look that singled me out I thought) but the part that really had me super flying TNT was standing there with my not 2 hour old freshly ironed shirt being ruffled over to the n'th degree by this security guard with dragon breath.

    I very nearly spontaneously exploded on the spot.

    I though baby milk was permitted, but would have to be verified by drinking a bit.

    I like to make sure I've plenty of water on a long journey, so with the 100ml restriction, I thought I'd get a water melon. Imagine my surprise when they wouldn't let me take the kitchen knife on-board.
    Duct tape holds the universe together. In quantum chromodynamics it's known as the strong force. You get it in different colours, but metallic grey is best.

    I went on a lads trip to Berlin where one of my mates tried to get through security with a bottle of pop he'd bought from Aldi, it looked like red diesel and was called 'Explosade'.

    On the same trip another mate was asked if he had packed anything sharp to which he replied "a lemon" ...didn't even raise a smile.

    It is mostly for show anyway which is why it is so annoying.
    Terrorist A carries 200ml of explosive component A, terrorist B carries..... well you get the picture.
    Is a suicide bomber likely to have a problem drinking something that will kill them?
    You can buy flamable materials and knives airside.
    A champoo bottle makes an effective club.
    Broken bottles from duty free make good enough weapons too.

    A few months ago I was surprised to find the 8" screwdriver I had been using at the weekend in the pocket of my overcoat after arriving in Germany. Manc airport scanners completely missed it.
    I am not qualified to give the above advice!
