Stoopid

The US was the only country to prohibit lighters on airplanes. That ban will be lifted on August 4. However, it’s still far too dangerous to bring more than 3 ounces of shampoo in your carry-on throughout most of the world. Everyone knows liquids explode more than lighters do!

Cigarette lighters, breast milk OK on planes

And for anyone else who thinks the TSA ban on liquids is the dumbest idea ever, I suggest you watch the SNL skit on TSA Training.

    Yeah the liquids thing annoys me because it means I have to put all of my makeup and perfumes in my checked in luggage and I’m really afraid of them getting damaged, breaking open and not only losing the products but ruining and soaking my clothes. Those baggage handler are not gentle. I think I’d rather turn up a lot earlier and have a more thorough security check actually so they can check my Revlon foundation isn’t a bomb about to go off then check it with the other luggage.

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In January 2010, I started focusing more on teaching and learning languages in general. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at the university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling (though now my trips are usually in Australia) and being an American abroad.
