The list of what you can or cannot take with you is frightening! You may say with these lunatics around who wish to blow up planes, it is needed. However I for one hanker for those good old days when one flew by the old Soviet Aeroflot - I remember watching diplomats and others bringing in everything but the kitchen sink. There were huge televisions - and the like - all way above the weight allowed. Then there are those local flights in certain parts of the world where livestock were brought on board. I am sure they carried aboard almost all the items listed as dangerous! But back to the plot. What if you are man or woman who has spent a fortune on a deodorant and you are faced with the alternatives above. Are there any other options? Well, suppose that if it is the amount that is a problem - you could spray it and reduce the amount - but spray it where? Two options - when they strip search you and do the cavity search looking for batteries or bazookers, you could then liberally spray it all over yourself. Secondly, more riskier, is to spray around the airport - at which juncture you find yourself shot dead or floored by the security. Another option is to say hell with this - my deodorant can go on holiday without me. Check it in and do not travel with it. You can then travel by other means - arrive at the airport one week later and claim your luggage (if it is still there - and you beloved deodorant).
