What a brilliant idea ! in United Kingdom and Ireland Posted April 18, 2002 There can also be the embarrasment factor. My other half once went to Ireland and took a bag load of stuffed toys with her. The security people put it through an x-ray machine and she had the embarrasment of everyone looking at an outline of her bag with loads of beady eyes and noses and faint bear shapes looking out from the display. Luckily Ireland doesn't have a large black market in bears so there were no really awkward questions to answer. Finding your caches - Losing my marbles.
