Victory in the War on Liquid

In one test, TSA inspectors hid the components of a fake bomb in carry-on luggage that also contained a bottle of water. Passengers are prohibited from carrying containers holding more than three ounces of liquids, gels or aerosols through airport checkpoints.

The screeners at Albany International confiscated the water bottle but missed the bomb.

oh that is hilarious and terrifying at the same time. Like the way that you laugh hysterically when you fall out of the window of a 500ft building 🙁

This is what happens when you have an under-trained, under-paid, unmotivated workforce doing a boring job. It’s all the same issues that I had with airport security before 9/11 and that others had been putting out warnings about. I personally think they should hire personnel who are typically labeled with certain learning disorders. You need someone who can do certain key tasks over and over again in detail without getting bored. There are people who can do that who are very underutilized. I’m not saying the entire workforce, but having someone that focused on the job can keep others on their toes.
