The Next Time I Travel...

...I think I'll bring along an empty toner cartridge.

Toner and ink cartridges over 16 ounces will be prohibited on passenger aircraft in both carry-on bags and checked bags on domestic and international flights in-bound to the United States. This ban will also apply to certain inbound international air cargo shipments as well. Further, all cargo identified as high risk will go through additional and enhanced screening.

Hey, is that 16 ounces in volume or weight? Is that the capacity of the cartridge or the total? I just want to make sure I'm following the rules. If I have a part to play in security theater, I want to play it well.

TSA -- Preventing yesterday's threats and desperately praying nobody smuggles an explosive butt plug onto a plane.
