Given the recent concern over carrying liquids and assorted kinds of "gels" while flying, I was suddenly struck by thought..don't they make padded bras containing gels? What about them?
What if the bad guys decided to use explosive gel containing bras? Worst what if they could not find female recruits? Would they go with gel bra wearing..cross dressing male (maybe gay) terarists? ;-)
But fear not our homeland security folks have that covered. From the link here...
U.S. authorities are advising women not to wear gel bras on airplanes as information developed in the foiled London plot points to an expanding role for women in smuggling explosives on to an aircraft.
Authorities at Scotland Yard are questioning a husband and wife, suspects in the London terror plot, about allegations that they were planning to use their baby's bottle to hide a liquid bomb.
There were some funny comments in response to this post..

Bush has declared that there are 3 fronts in the the war on terror - Afghanistan, Iraq and Lebanon. Apparently there is a fourth - the cosmetics aisle in Macy's. By: YellowDogDemocrat on August 16, 2006 at 04:39pm
And exactly HOW is security going to find out if one is wearing a gel bra? Are we going to have official squeezers now? How 'bout a diaphram (with gel) for a mile-high encounter? Too much hairspray? Too think makeup, overdone mascara, eyeliner or lipstick? Pinned up hair? What could that hold? Unsafe hair extensions? Good God!! By: kgrdem on August 16, 2006 at 05:29pm

I guess silicone dildos are not allowed either. How about penile implants? By: Elucid on August 16, 2006 at 05:59pm
Ouch, word to the uniformed, don't use those silicone dildos if you're sensitive to certain chemicals. The trip to ER is very embarrasing. By: moderatewestcoaster on August 16, 2006 at 08:19pm
File those in the category of "Did we really need to know that!"
You know the first word that comes unbidden into my mind after reading the original post was..Jello Biafra. Ya I can't explain.. my mind works in strange ways, ways that can't be explained on this blog. Maybe it was the gel and jell-O thing..
Jello Biafra is an American punk rock singer and here is his bio from wikipedia. The story of how he named himself is interesting..
(born June 17, 1958), better known by the stage name Jello Biafra, is an American punk rock musician and political activist best known as the former lead singer of the Dead Kennedys. After the band disbanded, he became a solo musician and spoken word artist, releasing several albums based on both careers on his record label, Alternative Tentacles. In his political life, he is an active member of the Green Party and participates in activism relating to his progressive political beliefs. He is a self-proclaimed anarchist (though not a promoter of anarchy), and advocates civil disobedience and pranksterism in the name of political change. Biafra is known to use absurdist media tactics in the tradition of the Yippies to highlight issues of civil rights, social justice, and anti-corporatism.
His stage name is a combination of the brand name Jell-O and the name of the short lived country of Biafra which attempted to secede from Nigeria in 1966. After four years of fighting and horrific starvation, Nigeria regained control of the nascent Biafran state. Jello Biafra created his name as an ironic combination of a nutritionally poor mass-produced food product and mass starvation.Some Pictures From Our Backyard..
Some of these pics were taken with our Minolta SLR, but being a film camera, the pics only got developed recently. Man I so need to upgrade to the Digital SLR. Oh well..
Geraniums.. We have had these below for a while and got them from our friend Bobbi before she move to NC. These normally sit in the gym room but we forgot to leave the glass doors open so it got really hot and we almost lost them. But we have some flowers now..phew..
These are well past their peak, but I managed to take a pic before that happened. Dunno what they are called.
