Guerrilla action to promote services of an insurance company developed by agency Partizan Media. Wobblers with the realistic image were inserted into mirrors of a back kind, completely simulating reflection which the driver sees.

Six Places to Nuke When You’re Serious

Assuming a 1-megaton nuclear weapon, what are the optimal delivery points to maximize global damage and chaos? We are assuming a 1 megaton bomb due to simplicity – this yield is about twice that of the most powerful fission bomb produced by the US, the Mk 18, which used 60 kg of enriched uranium.

[Quote:]

Effective immediately by order of the TSA, passengers may not bring liquids or gels of any size at the security checkpoint or in the aircraft cabin – including beverages, shampoo, suntan lotion, toothpaste, hair gel, and other items of similar consistency. Such items may be transported in checked baggage. Passengers may have baby formula, breast milk, or juice if a baby or small child is traveling. Passengers may also have prescription medication labeled with a name which matches the name on the passenger’s ticket, insulin, or other essential non-prescription medications. Beverages purchased beyond the security checkpoints must be consumed before boarding the aircraft. For further information, please go to www.tsa.gov. Thank you.

Some people are going to be regretting picking up that cheap litre of duty free vodka…

  1. Forget the vodka, this is going to tick off herds of business travelers who like the convenience of having their roll-aboard luggage and not having to wait for their bags in baggage claim. Either that, or everyone is going to leave the shampoo, toothpaste, and shaving cream at home?

  2. Funny that you mention that – shampoo, toothpaste etc is exactly the stuff I didn’t bother to take with me to curacao. One visit to the local supermarket and you’re set. That safes me a bit on my weight allowance, which, for divers, is usually a problem…

  3. Yeah, that works if you’re going on a longer trip and travel more rarely. Try that if you’re traveling for work and have to go places overnight all the time. You could see better hotels expanding the free shampoo/lotion/etc selection in their rooms, but I think for many women there’s no way to replace their make-up kit.

  4. Furthermore, you were checking luggage already anyway. This only matters for people trying to travel with only carry-on.

  5. true – and I only do it because of the limited weight allowance..

  6. oh, and I guess laptop insurance is going to suffer, with all the damage to the checked laptop bags thrown around by the baggage systems…

  7. This summer’s unexpected blockbuster: DRINKS ON A PLANE!

    Anyhow, this was an extremely succesfull terrorist attack, that affected thousands of people, that will affect the bottom line for several airline companies, that will continue to inspire fear, and that will be used to further reduce civil rights.

    The terrorists must be very satisfied with their accomplishments…

September 11 — what year? 30 percent of Americans don’t know

Some 30 percent of Americans cannot say in what year the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against New York’s World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington took place, according to a poll published in the Washington Post newspaper.

While the country is preparing to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the attacks that claimed nearly 3,000 lives and shocked the world, 95 percent of Americans questioned in the poll were able to remember the month and the day of the attacks, according to Wednesday’s edition of the newspaper.

But when asked what year, 30 percent could not give a correct answer.

Of that group, six percent gave an earlier year, eight percent gave a later year, and 16 percent admitted they had no idea whatsoever.

This memory black hole is essentially the problem of the older crowd: 48 percent of those who did not know were between the ages of 55 and 64, and 47 percent were older than 65, according to the poll.

British police say foil plot to bomb aircraft

Posted on August 10th, 2006 at 9:26 by John Sinteur in category: News

British police said on Thursday they had thwarted a plot to blow up aircraft in mid-flight between Britain and the United States and arrested more than 15 people.

Britain’s security services raised the threat level to the country to “critical” from “severe,” the highest of its five ratings which means “an attack is expected imminently.”

News of the arrests and heightened security threat came amid high international tension over the war in Lebanon and the week British Prime Minister headed on holiday to the Caribbean.

“A major terrorist plot to allegedly blow up aircraft in mid-flight has been disrupted,” a London police spokesman said, adding they believed the intention was to target flights from Britain to the United States.

Following the arrests, security at all British airports was increased and additional security measures put in place.

Britain’s Home Secretary (Interior Minister) John Reid said it was “very significant plot” aimed at bringing “down a number of aircraft through mid-flight explosions.”

“We are doing everything possible to disrupt any further terrorist activity,” he said in a statement. “This will mean major disruption at all UK airports.”

Almost sounds like an election is imminent…

  1. If only the “Terrorists” had better sense to target the two idiots at the helm of US/UK axis of idiocy rather than innocent people i would donate money myself. It’s just a matter of time before one attack gets through the security net. And when it does i’ll lay the blame right on the doorstep of No.10 and the Washington. ‘Nuff said.
