    Stupid things to take to another country.

    Yeah, we all do stupid things but:

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,351922,00.html

    Would you take bullets to Russia? I don't think so.

    So, what can you come up with to NOT take to another country?

    considering that you're asking this on a primarily american forum, where well over 70% of the population doesn't even have a passport, i somehow doubt that this is the best place to ask.

    Well I would think that the bike forums people are a little more worldly. So Botto, what can you think of?

    Anything the country or countries I am visiting say I may not have with me. That would actually require finding out such information before I leave. Emailing a consulate or two, even.

    That guy in Russia was so stupid, it makes me ashamed to be American.

    Much, much worse than bullets would be a plant or insect - the damage from them is much, much worse.

    Nah, dumb assed is a world wide issue.

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark — When two Danish burglars realized someone had stolen the keys to their getaway car, they reacted like honest citizens and called the police.
    Police said they were only too happy to help, and arrested them after they confessed to breaking and entering.
    The men, identified only as an 18-year-old and a 20-year-old, broke into a summer cabin late Wednesday near Kaldred, 55 miles west of Copenhagen.
    As they carried their haul to the car, they were confronted by a passer-by, who witnessed the break-in and insisted that they return the stolen property.
    To ensure they couldn't get away, the passer-by took the keys from their car, and refused to return them.
    "The two young men then called us and said they needed our help getting their keys back," Chief Superintendent Asger Larsen said on Thursday.
    He said the two realized that without the keys, they would have to leave their car at the scene, which would put the police on their trail and lead to their arrest anyway.
    "It's a pretty straightforward case for us, since this time, the thieves actually reported the robbery," Larsen said.

    It's pretty much a given that you don't take guns or ammunition with you into a foreign country unless you declare it.

    It's also illegal for the pastor to have taken ammunition on the plane without declaring it to the airline, and to the TSA people.

    He's apparently flown to Russia several times before, and claims that he did not know that it was illegal to bring guns or ammunition into Russia without declaring the items .

    unlike the majority of posters on BF, you also have a sense of humor.

    A friend of mine unwittingly transported a serious amount of drugs from Europe to the U.S. She pleaded ignorance and stupidity, and they believed her, but she is still a convicted felon.

    heh, I just visited my friend in Toronto - and on the way back (via bus - as I'm that commuter) - we were held up getting back into the U.S. because ...


    of a tangerine.

    I watched probably 6 Border Patrol men take this tangerine from this man's luggage - and squeeze the dickens out of it (hehe - really - they squeeeeezed it!) - pass it back and forth (with gloves on) and look at it and talk about it and, OY COME ON, and discuss the living snot out of it until they finally confiscated that ONE tangerine and let the guy pass through - so we could get a move on homeward.

    Hmmm, wonder what kinda tangerine that was? Buggies included of course.

    Isn't this like taking a bottle of water to the swimming pool in order to pour it over yourself if you get too hot?
