Relative Viscosity

Taking a plane anytime soon? This information may help. When I flew to Washington last week, I made the mistake of assuming that a large tube of hair gel, half full, was the same as the allowable 3.4 oz tube (and the industrial strength stuff doesn’t come in small tubes anyway). TSA didn’t agree and confiscated it!

However, on the way home I had in my purse a jar of Marmite (thanks, Andrew). I sailed right through security.

There are some (many, actually) in my family who consider Marmite more lethal than hair gel. Apparently TSA doesn’t agree with them.
