They are killing the ability to think, they are killing reason with their extraordinarily stupid laws. We are being dumbed down. They came up with this “security” story and they are selling you the bullshit idea that confiscating your 125 ml of facial cream, 70 ml of milk for your baby is for your own good. I don't know how many tragi-comical hassling incidents go on at airports every single day and I don't want to know.
“Yes, there is very little inside but this is a 125 ml. bottle, you are not allowed.”
“I have a small bottle with me, may I put it in that?”
A power-maniac says “No!” but there is someone in his right mind over there and he says “Yes, you may.” After all, why mayn't you?
You transfer the content to the small bottle and ask to get back the big bottle. The power-maniac again says “No, you cannot take it!” The one in his right mind interferes once more and says “You may take it, it's an empty bottle.” Of course he is aware of the buffoonery. He adds: “Our rules are a bit strange but there is nothing we can do about it.”
What's more, they foist this theatrics on us as “security” and take the money from our pockets, and we meekly say “Baa”! It's mind-blowing.
