TSA bans carry-on liquids, urges passengers to check all bags.
You can take knitting needles, nail files and small scissors aboard flights in your carry-on bags, but as of today, not shampoo, hair gel or toothpaste, according to new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) rules.
You know, if I was certain that my checked bags would actually arrive at my destination, and that no "screener" would steal anything from my bags, I wouldn't mind checking my bags.

But airlines have NEVER had a perfect rate of getting checked bags on the same plane as the customer, and I keep hearing more and more stories of "screeners" stealing stuff from checked baggage.

It's better to just not fly at all.

Why toothpaste?! Seriously, what are they trying to prevent from blocking liquids in their hand-held baggage? Good thing there are gums and floss. But you gotta admit that this is too high-strung for a security SOP.
