Default From the Ministry of the bleeding obvious

Was driving long distance today, and listening to the radio.

A caller called in to state that they were able to buy a glass bottle of beer on a domestic flight, and that given the security checks that they went through to get onto the flight, they thought it strange that the typical "down and dirty" pub brawl weapon of choice was actually issued to airline passengers for a fee.

It was a homeresque "DOH!!" moment for me, having seen the media bleating about how undetectable "ceramic" knives could be.

Anyway, another guy rang in and pointed out that on internation flights, he's always had his "duty free" gear in the luggage locker, replete with whisky bottles which have an even better handle than Crownie bottles.

Funny that this all started with a couple of stanley knives, and a most obvious weapon is issued to passengers.

Liberate \'em all
and let God sort \'em out.
