Are nail scissors allowed in carry-on bag on a plane?

Try searching for this on the internet. Try checking your airline's website. The info is ranging from "Not allowed at all" to "Even knife with blade of 10cm is no problem". But most often scissors with blades shorter than 6cm are allowed.

And yet... nail scissors is the only item that has ever been confiscated from me.

Three times.

american cities were not recycling in the first place. They just redefined "recycling" as "sending it to China", and now China said they want the waste properly separated and sorted. So US is instead burning it. Yes, even the plastics. Way to go people, way to go...

fractional reserves? Like we don't know where that leads?

To elaborate on this, here's an algorithm how to DDoS someone and break the Matrix network at the same time:

* Get a domain
* Get a wildcard certificate
* Spawn a stripped down instance with $randomname.yourdomain.org that can only talk to matrix.org.
* Send a join to :matrix.org
* Redirect $randomname.yourdomain.org to your target you want to DDoS
* Kill the instance, repeat with another $randomname

Now 2000 - 5000 servers will constantly hammer your target with TLS handshakes.
