Bringing back vanilla

The ban on liquids that morphed into the 100cc limit is a scam. It is only kept in place so that airlines can sell more drinks to customers.

The original ban was implemented because some really stupid terrorists had the grand idea of carrying highly-concentrated hydrogen peroxide onto a plane with the goal of transforming it into a liquid bomb inflight. It was a hare-brained scheme that would never have worked on an actual flight. First, they would have had to locked themselves in the bathroom for up to two hours after asking for a bucket of ice. Any turbulence would have rendered the mixture totally useless. However, it had the wonderful effect of increasing beverage revenue for the airlines. We have the technology to remove the restriction but don't hold your breath waiting for it to be implemented.
