I think you did swallow some shampoo, Ahmed

I think maybe you swallowed some shampoo with mercury or lead in it, Ahmed. Something must explain your thinking...

Prior to September 11, when Arab Muslims murdered almost 3000 Americans, I used to fly with a toolkit in my carry on suitcase. All the time, no problem. A smallish toolkit with screwdrivers and other sharp tools, including a box cutter knife. Occasionally I would have to check my tool bag on flights in Europe and Japan, but never once in the USA. Not anymore. Since 9/11, my tools are always checked, and I've lost a dozen penknives because I forget it's in my pocket when I arrive at airport security.

The shampoo prohibition came several years later, when Muslims plotted to board trans Atlantic flights from England with liquid explosives, intending to murder hundreds of innocent men, women and children. (Women and children seem to be their speciality.) Myself, I stay in hotels that put shampoo in the bathroom so I don't carry any but, prior to the (most recent) jihad declared against the West, I could have lugged a gallon jug of shampoo on board if I wanted to, and no one would have cared.

How come who boarded the plane with their guns, Ahmed? What plane? When? Please stop swallowing that shampoo, Ahmed.
