Lipstick on your Collar

Ok. An addendum to what we can take on planes...

Glucose: makes sense.
Pills: alright.
Baby food: yeah, those things like to eat... Greedy bastards.
Solid Lipstick: HOLD UP!

While I am against lipstick for its social normalization qualities (see below), I think this is ridiculous. I am against this whole ban thing in the first place, but if you are going to allow lipstick, you must allow other things. Of all things that might explode, I'd place lipstick HIGH on the list. Lipstick is a compound generally made of carbon alcohols and plastics to produce a malleable material, but so is certain an other composition that we see in movies and was used to blow up the U.S.S. Cole

Oh shit. Composition C-4.

Now, I highly doubt that the amount of C-4 carried in a lipstick tube would blow up anything
(that big), but the point is: Don't outlaw carry-ons. A) It's inconvenient as hell, and B) You are never going to think of all the possibilities.

And just because it's culturally engineered to have women wear lipstick, and outlawing it would mean 50% of the population (ok, maybe 45% or less) not being able to look "their best" when traveling is no reason to be selective.

Either outlaw everything, and see your transportation businesses crash. Simply, stop being big sissies.

But then, when in history was the population ever REALLY brave, other than in maybe Sparta.
I just hope "the terrorists" (you know the ones the media and gov't talks about to scare us, oh!) don't decide to poison salt packets used to season McDonalds' fries.


(And now, if that actually does happen, I'm fucked)
