Scott Adams, the creator of the Dilbert cartoon, recounts in his blog his recent experiences with airport security and its oddities in “Dangerous Containers“. He tells of how a transparent 4-ounce container of shampoo that held only one ounce of fluid was confiscated becuase it could hold more than three ounces. In his typical manner he explores the threat that those three ounces of ‘nothing’, along with the larger quantity of ‘nothing’ in his not-full bag could be a threat.
The blog posting is not that funny. What is outrageous are the comments. Some people need to take life a lot less seriously.
