The logistics of liquid explosives

With their article “Mass murder in the skies: was the plot feasible?“, The Register have done a nice job of debunking the myth that mixing liquids to create an explosive with the intention of bringing down a plane is a trivial affair. It’s a welcome moment of sanity amongst all the commotion created by the media.

It’s a sad reflection on modern society that the mainstream press would rather perpetuate the notion that terrorists are everywhere, and that we should all be living in fear, rather than delivering actual facts.

If sex sells, it looks like fear does too.
