someone in US do me a favour?

Won a couple of kits off US ebay, tried sending the seller the 22 bucks by
paypal, turns out it wont let anyone outside the US and shes too daft to fix
it, can someone post her the bucks and i will pay you direct via paypal plus
the fee, would help me out a great deal. I used to goto the city and send
bucks by airmail but i cant get into the city for a week.

Just after 9/11, someone here posted that they wern't allowed onto an aircraft with a model tank, because, IIRC 'it's a military weapon'.
At our local (domestic only) airport, you have to remove your steel capped boots and put them throught the x-ray machine, just in case you've got a bazooka (or Bin Laden?) hidden in there... the people manning the security station have NO sense of humour. Last time I was there (to see someone off) they wouldn't let a passenger onto the a/c with one of those little Swiss Army personal grooming kits on his key ring - you know, the ones with the nail file, the tweezers, the scissors and the oh-so-dangerous 1 inch knife blade... It's gotten beyond a joke.

I've got a 6" long stainless steel plate in my leg, the result of a bad combination of beer, motorcycles & plain stupidity. None of these things have ever detected it, even with actual physical contact. It's a joke.

Over on the GIJoe group, there's been talk of grandmothers with a GIJoe for their grandkid having it confiscated because GIJoe has an M16, grenades, & Bowie knife. Doesn't matter they're 1/6 scale & made of plastic. Or the kid in Georgia(?) who was expelled from elementery school for taking GIJoe with his gun to school & going 'bang, bang' at recess. Weapons or facsimiles (1:1 or 1:6 I guess) aren't allowed at school you know. Common sense? What's that?

Says who? I've got the scars to disprove that one. A three inch plastic M16 because it techincally is a "plastic gun"? That is just ludicrous.

FWIW The security people at airports were generally minimun wage employees (High school diploma not required) and now that they are on the federal payroll they are supposed to get intelligent?? Be real!

Which one? Boxcutters and plastic toys seem to be miles apart. I've always regarded boxcutters with care because they can inflict damage. The GI Joe stuff is just PC crap.

Does sound ludicrous but anyone with the right training can slit your throat with a 1" knife and your going to be just as dead. Yea, I know your thinking "get real". Ok I will. No one thought box cutters were a danger. The terrorist did. I guess no one thought that a shoe could be dangerous either. But the terrorist figured it out. Yes, thinking a 3' toy gun is dangerous is a little paranoid but think about this. Those security people aren't riding on those planes, you are. Do you really want them to be less security conscious? Trying to keep POTENTIAL threats off airplanes is not a joke. Trying to guess what terrorist will come up with next isn't either. Can you imagine being the security person who has to live the rest of your life knowing it was your fault a plane crashed because you didn't think something could be dangerous? There are several out there now doing just that
