You have to toss breastmilk, but TNT/ nitroglycerin explosives get a pass
You'll be happy to know that the new restrictions imposed by DHS on all US flights has not prevented a 21 yr old psychology student from bringing actual TNT / nitroglycerin explosives from Buenos Aires to Houston: "In Buenos Aires, the head of Argentina's Airport Security, told reporters that authorities found "a Coke bottle w/ mud, and inside it was a tube w/ ammonium nitrate, a little bit of dynamite and a detonator." In Houston, KTRK-13 quoted law enforcement sources as saying that the man had a blasting cap, a homemade fuse and a quarter-pound of ammonium nitrate, in addition to the dynamite." Hmm... so we're tossing out bottled water, hair gel, mascara, lip gloss and breastmilk WHY EXACTLY?
