comment Prohibited item forgotten in hand luggage: what to do with it?
I know people who have flown (accidentally) with a machete in their carryon. So, you can always hope. Helps if you happen to be a white male, though. (Ironically later he was hassled about baby formula for his daughter, who was flying with him)

comment Can I stop a fellow passenger from using their cell phone during take off?
I know many people who have left their cell phones on during flight, accidentally or otherwise. For the safety of your family? Fly directly to your destination and forget about the taxi ;)

Maybe "awkward holiday family get-together questions"?

comment Is it rude to ask if the food contains pork or alcohol?
@CarlWitthoft read the answer again: deadly to a person who is an alcoholic and is trying to stay away from abusing it. I don't suspect that Karen was claiming the taste was deadly because the taste itself would cause alcohol poisoning, but because it would trigger a relapse in the addict (leading to <insert fatal outcome of alcoholism here>). I could be wrong, as it's not my answer, but that's how I understood the statement.

@CarlWitthoft deadly in the sense that alcohol can cause relapse apparently even reading the alcohol content on the label can be enough.

comment Can I carry contact solution onto a plane that is more than the 3oz limit?
@JBentley my personal experience is that TSA is a joke. I made it through security with a Gerber (multi-tool with knives and files) accidentally. I know someone who did the same with a Gerber machete. Ironically, when he was trying to carry baby formula through for his daughter (with her) he got hassled. As a veteran, he was totally thrilled by the experience

Bruce Schneier routinely goes through TSA with 24oz

comment DIY computer in hand luggage - what to expect on security checks?
I was actually told not to turn on my TI-84+ Silver by the attendant that did the swabbing.

Arguably it depends on how white you are...

comment Can a tourist buy a gun in the USA?
I always forget that the word "alien" is not restricted to extraterrestrial usage. And I was really confused for about half a second on just why we care if an extraterrestrial picks up a firearm, when they likely have ray guns ;)

comment Are wet wipes subject to the TSA's 3-1-1 Liquids Rule?
Which is really interesting to me because wet wipes actually contain alcohol of some sort (at least ours do)

comment Traveling in Europe Solo - 18 years old. Feasible?
It's so strange that we human beings are more fearful after watching something like Taken, but we don't have nearly the same issues with the possibility of wizards and a group of dwarves showing up on our doorstep.
