    Lol DD..
    It was more a matter of pulling a prank on some of my teammates and not watching my back afterwards.. I went through the door to the EOD office and was jumped by 4 guys who thought I had some comeuppance..

    Why its a risk? Because its only badguys who use duct tape ofc..
    Must be the same reason as a nail file is dangerous but knitting needles are ok..

    Look at the sign again. Knitting needles work in the US, but prohibited leaving Mexico.

    How many planes have been brought down by blades from a disposable razor and toothbrushes?

    Funny loose batteries are a nono but batteries in laptops, phones, ipods (heh try to remove those), walkmans are OK??? So loose batteries bad, installed batteries good.....LOL! This whole mess seems beyond absurd!

    So water is a nono?

    Stay tuned, this will likely change... again.

    Well, guess the mexicans realized that knitting needles can be stabbed deeper into someone than the nail file :eek:

    The most absurd item is "tennis rackets."
    Possible explanations:
    -the conquistadors brought tennis with them and destroyed Mayan temples in order to erect courts so tennis rackets are a bit of a historical sore point (look it up this is totally 100% historically inaccurate)
    -tennis rackets look too much like windmills that harness wind energy
    -it is a proletariat blow against the bourgeois
    -some people may have duct tape on the racket grip

    Lastly, since it states tennis rackets, is just one racket allowed?

    Red Cross Deb had mentioned that she had a number of coins from several countries which had been donated by visitors - and of course no way to redeem them at local banks, which I doubt want to mess with coins from any other country. I like helping her out a little when I visit so asked her to gather up about $10US worth of those to give to my granddaughter - then save her $20US.

    Wow! 18 oz, and the way I pack I was concerned about the weight but made the weigh-in ok. I waited until I got home to open the bag only to see that she had carefully sorted the coins in separate envelopes by country - dozens of them! This could be fun & educational both. If my granddaughter seems interested, we'll use metal polish to clean them up and see what we can read. I know some are out of circulation, pre-Ero, etc. but could be interesting still.

    [​IMG] Thanks Deb...!!
