 From Boing Boing:
Debating the feasibility of an in-flight liquid bomb

"A UK court finally heard evidence about the bizarre liquid-explosive
plot hatched in 2006 by some fairly unrealistic suicide bombers, the
origin of the global ban on taking liquids through aviation security
checkpoints. The plan? To mix Tang and peroxide in Lucozade bottles and
make airplanes go boom. Ever since the plot first came to light,
chemists and explosives experts have been highly skeptical of it
working, and the TSA and UK authorities have blithely insisted that they
believe it could come true.

Now, readers of Bruce Schneier's security blog are invited to weigh in
on the feasibility of such a scheme, given the information that just
emerged in court:"
