So here's a silly idea.

Since we can't carry our own water through security, TSA does allow
EMPTY bottles that we can fill with water fountain water (or we can buy
these inside for $$). Every traveler should carry a one liter bottle
with him/her.  The 100 kg of extra weight will cost USAIRWAYS a non-zero
amount, until they figure out this is a stupid idea.

Do they allow credit cards? That costs $0.50 or more for a small
transaction.  Or, carry pennies ;)
