3 OUNCES

Attention all non-frequent fliers: The new TSA rule is no more than 3 ounces of gel, cream or other liquid may be brought through security check points. Three ounce containers of the stuff must be removed from your carry-on baggage and placed in a ziploc baggy and run through the scanners. If you do not have a ziploc bag one will be appointed to you by your friendly TSA agent. Sweet.

Apparently folks don't know about his new rule and arguing with these people and wrestling their Sam's Wholesale size Hair gel from them has clogged security check points at Nashville International badly enough that I have leave half an hour earlier than normal for my flight to OK City this afternoon.

FYI. Less than three ounces? Not a terrorist threat. More than three ounces? Grounds for a body cavity search. Or worse, making me miss my flight.

This has been a public service announcement from SHLOG.COM. Happy traveling.

haha.....always a fun experience. All I ask is that my hairgel doesn't explode when they manhandle my bags in the luggage claim. But noooo, I try to save it from that kind of torture and it turns into a big thing. Those airport experiences are almost so memorable.

Apparently there are other things that can hold you up at the airport also.

Huh... somehow, I would imagine the body cavity search would be more helpful in uncovering less than three ounces... at least I would hope so...
