welcome to the mile-high club

from the updated tsa airport security rules:
"The U.S. Transportation Security Administration has loosened some of the carry-on security rules originally imposed after the announcement that London authorities had exposed a suspected airline terror plot back on August 10. In general, liquids, gels, and lotions are still not permitted in carry-on luggage and must be disposed of before you board the plane. But there are some new exceptions that are important to travelers:

  • Small amounts of baby formula and breast milk if a baby or small child is traveling
  • Liquid prescription medicine with a name that matches the passenger's ticket
  • Up to 5 oz. (148ml) of liquid or gel low blood sugar treatment
  • Up to 4 oz. of essential non-prescription liquid medications including saline solution, eye care products and KY jelly
  • Gel-filled bras and similar prosthetics
  • Gel-filled wheelchair cushions
  • Life support and life sustaining liquids such as bone marrow, blood products, and transplant organs carried for medical reasons

why would you need to take ky jelly on a plane trip? you can't take gel deoderant (and don't we really want our seat neighbors to smell good and not like they'd been surfing in onions on their trip?) or lip gloss (hello, chapped lips, people!), but if you want to be all lubed up "down there," well, that's ok. perhaps tsa should be renamed t&a.
