If it wasn't for the humor in the situation, it would be too ugly to
think about. I had a mostly-empty container of toothpaste confiscated at
the Denver airport (there was maybe half an ounce of toothpaste in
there) because the container was marked '6 oz.' The TSA agent, with a
completely straight face, explained to me that it wasn't the amount
that's in there, it's the amount that could be _mixed_ in there. I very
carefully didn't point out to her that the *required* Ziploc bag was of
the *required* 1-quart capacity...
