FedEx and Silly Security

This just blows my mind – a story of how FedEx wouldn’t ship some (empty) containers simply because they were labeled (humorously) as “rocket fuel” or “N2” (Nitrogen). From the post:

I sympathize with people who aren’t making very much and are probably forced to comply with arcane corporate rules and who have to deal with weirdoes coming in with cans labeled “Rocket Fuel.” I really do. But… c’mon. How much effort is involved in *not* being part of the common-sense-negating, spirit-crushing, Bush-era fear-slash-stupidity machine? The terrorists win again.

Indeed.
