Uncovering of terror plot leads to changes in security

We all know by now about the foiled terrorist plot involving a group in Great Britain and their plans to explode U.S.-bound airplanes. The uncovering of that plot has led to some changes in security at airports such as the fact that liquids and gels are no longer allowed on planes no matter how effing thirsty you are.

But did you know that it means snakes are no longer allowed on planes? Peter has the scoop on the real inconvenience to air travelers.

Announcing imBinge

Because this is just what the world needs.

Tom and I have decided there’s just too much free time in our days. So we decided to launch a new blog, imBinge. The basic premise is that some wacky stuff gets said over IM, as we’ve proven by blogging some of the conversations we’ve had with each other. So why not share that with the world?

Submission is easy. Just copy your IM convo and send it to thepurge-at-imbinge.com. Please include the real names of the people involved since we’ll redact the idents in the conversation before posting. If you don’t tell us the names we’ll replace them with whatever happens to be on our mind at the time.

Tom’s the one who’s been working the most on getting this setup so a hearty thanks to him for that.
