It's bullshit to make people get rid of their water then try to sell them bottled water for $3. I ended up filling mine in the bathroom sink. Sometimes my bottle is too tall to fit in a sink and that trick doesn't work. I'm not advocating making airports install a ton of water fountains...but there should be some sort of workaround to the liquids restriction. I propose that you can take any liquid through security as long as you ingest at least 4 fluid ounces of it. That way I can keep my water but I have to ditch the gasoline or whatever those crazy kids are using these days to blow up planes.

No Free Water Past Security
I was flying out of Kansas City today and I jettisoned my water before passing through security. Upon safely reaching the secure area, I went to find a water fountain only to find that there is not one available in that part of the airport.
