US trumps UK again

I knew it couldn't last.

In light of the fact that people may be trying to blow up planes using liquid explosives too dangerous to mix beforehand (i.e. binary explosives), the TSA (the US organisation responsible for airport security) has come up with a fantastic(ally stupid) idea! Now when you go through the security checkpoint, they'll pour all liquids into a big vat right there at the checkpoint. Um, wait a sec... ur... um... did they forget about the BINARY LIQUID EXPLOSIVES?! Hello?!

In other news, apparently at least some US airports are making people check all electronics, including laptops and mobile phones, and are suspicious of electronics they don't recognise.
