Flyer Alert: No Soap OR Radio

If you’re flying within the next few days, don’t try to bring that nalgene of Dom Pom on the plane or listen to your iPod. A foiled terrorist plot involving combustible liquids detonated by electronics devices has raised a ban on carrying either aboard. Anything in a bottle is gonna go in the trash. Check everything except your wallets, keys and passports. Expect extended delays, canceled flights and intensive security searches at all airports.

UPDATE: Gadgets are not banned on US flights, just UK. No word whether handheld steam-powered devices are permissible. We presume so, just as long as they’re not in a bottle.

UPDATE: Whodathunkit, the terrorist news caused oil per barrel prices to drop a buck.
