Eight life lessons: Don’t take your pressure cooker to the airport

Instant Pot

Inspired by today’s news* and memories of yesterday’s good advice:

  1. Eat your peas. There are children starving in [fill in the blank with country of choice.]
  2. Never send money to Nigerian princes, bankers, astronauts, or spies.
  3. Don’t talk to strangers.
  4. Don’t click on that link.
  5. Always wear clean underwear with no holes. You could get in a traffic accident and be taken to the hospital and you wouldn’t want the doctors to think you are a slob.
  6. Don’t take your pressure cooker to the airport. It might look like a fancy crock pot to you, but it looks like a bomb to TSA.
  7. Always say please and thank you.
  8. Just say no.

 

* [from today’s news] Operations at Terminal 2 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport returned to normal Wednesday after authorities found a suspicious item in the morning and evacuated the terminal, airport officials said.

The ticketing lobby and checkpoints reopened just after 6 a.m. after the Bloomington Bomb Squad cleared the item, which turned out to be a rice cooker. The man who left the cooker behind was arrested, said airport spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski. X-rays revealed the rice cooker contained only spices.
