Why are you taking this anyway?

You say it's hand luggage only. Therefore presumably a short trip. If you really need your protein supplements during your one business meeting or whatever, could you not do what everyone else I know...

the pooch vs the machine

The lady concerned was a complete moron whose science education stopped at the age of 5. You had a large quantity of powder for god's sake. If the spectrometer didn't detect anything, it means 100%...

They walk into Manhattan from JFK carrying their suitcases (not being able to afford ones with wheels). :D

I think that is exactly right. Once you've been in it a few times (probably if even just once) you're hardly going to look forward to it as a highlight of your trip. The last four or five times I've...

That's a funny way to manage fast track immigration. Anyone could have one of those tags. They'll be selling them on e-bay next.
