Relax, It's Just A Gun

More news on the lighter side.

It is now illegal to take a cigarette lighter on any US commercial passenger aircraft. This applies to checked baggage, as well as carry on--or in your pocket. Ironically, it is legal to have a gun in ones checked baggage; and some people, like the pilots and the air marshals, can even carry them on their persons.

This puts an amusing twist on the old gag where one is frightened by a gun that turns out to be a cigarette lighter.
