Airport Security Drinking Games

Via Online Travel Review, an example of how the loss of civil liberties through airport security led one writer to drink.


It was pretty good port. At least, for 11 a.m. on a Saturday in an airport baggage claim. Dark, fruity, sticky and chocolatey and thick like murky dreams. After about the fifth sip, I had the profound insight that I was sharing this surreal moment with roughly one million other travelers worldwide who had equally (or rather, likely far more) obnoxious, annoying, unusual airport security tales to tell, from the profound to the silly to the stupid.

Don’t try this yourself, kids. Because not only can’t you take that bottle of port through security, drinking it in public is also frequently illegal … a TSA Officer’s advice notwithstanding.
