we shouldn’t have to tell you to leave the crossbow at home

Tom and I are flying off to California for the Thanksgiving holiday next week. Since somewhere along the way I became a very high-maintenance girl and am picky about taking my favorite shampoo and conditioner with me when I travel, I got to thinking about Dulles security theater and how I ought to check on the best way to ensure that my Veganese doesn’t get confiscated at the security check. (That stuff is expensive.)

I found TSA’s official listing of prohibited and restricted items and got my question answered. But while I was scrolling on down the page, I couldn’t help but laugh. I mean, my usual assumption is that rules are made and warnings are posted because some idiot tried to actually DO the thing that the rule warns against. So who’s the moron who tried to take his power saw onto a plane?
