Certain parcels are more closely scrutinsed than others, just because of the feel and origin Badge.
Isn't that parcelist?

Slightly off topic (sorry) but can I post kids "stink bombs"?

I've got a little pack of 3 (made with ammonia apparently) which I was going to take to a nephew in UK... then someone said not a good idea to pack anything with the word "bomb" on it... fair point...

So, I thought I might post them.

Or just give up the whole idea.

Or pack them and spend the rest of my life in prison.

For stink bombs.

They are very likely to arrive broken.... If you saw how the machines and people handle them you would realise why. Unless you've got a hell of a lot of bubble wrap around them. Can't you buy them online in the UK and get them sent from there, by indvidual courier.

That will probably be the best option. I just happen to have a pack handy...

I'm chortling at the idea of them breaking on the plane and circulating around the cabin for 8-12 hours
