Feeling safer now????

So, in response to an AQ bomber with an IQ of 3, the TSA has apparently instituted new travel regs to make us safer.

Air Canada said in a statement that new rules imposed by the Transportation Security Administration limit on-board activities by passengers and crew in U.S. airspace. The airline said that during the final hour of flight passengers must remain seated. They won’t be allowed access to carryon baggage or to have any items on their laps.

Flight attendants on some domestic flights are informing passengers of similar rules. Passengers on a flight from New York to Tampa Saturday morning were also told they must remain in their seats and couldn’t have items in their laps, including laptops and pillows.

The TSA issued a security directive for U.S.-bound flights from overseas, according to a transportation security official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly.

Oh, and in that vein, you might want to avoid watching the following little video:

Oh, and that concern about liquid binaries that caused the original 3 oz rule, it’s a damn good thing that terrorists are not smart enough to think about maybe putting more than one person on a plane, each one with a single part of the binary.

I sleep really well because of the geniuses who run the TSA and HSA. Of course I don’t fly anymore either.
