Canadians, binzing and capslockroxx need YOU!

  1. Oct 16, 2008 #1
    Hi, my friend Capslockroxx and I would really like to order some green lasers from a website, but the FDA won't allow orders to be shipped from the website we are buying from to the US, so I was wondering if one of you would be willing to help us, all you'd have to do is receive the shipment and then send it on to us, we'd pay all the expenses.

    Danger, your a canadian right?

    If anyone can do this for us it would be AMAZING...thanks.

    I am, but I doubt very seriously that the FDA is blocking from only one site. There must be some reason that they don't want them going into the US. Your best bet is to find out why (radiation hazard, etc.) they are considered unsafe. Contact the FDA directly and make some inquiries.

    Well yes, but its gonna be pretty much the same for any company, website, etc...I dunno...If you don't want to, i understand.

    Doesn't mean a geek won't want one...or find a way to get one.

    Do you really want to take a chance of violating a law for a LASER?

    At this moment you are conspiring to violate an import law, which in itself may be illegal.

    That's a great link, Mgb.
    Binzing, your attitude regarding this matter is disturbing. If your friend has a legitimate purpose for wanting one, then it appears from the article that there's an avenue to request a permit for possession. If he doesn't have such, then nobody here is going to break the law to accommodate him.

    Yeah. I know, it was really just a whim. Him and I are just geeks and would have fun messing with it. Really, it won't happen. Nevermind...

    {Later}Danger, remember poor ole Binzing? Yeah, he got five years working a sledge hammer at the rock quarry. There was talk about sending him to Guantanamo... Anyway, he has a really cool green LASER!

    :biggrin:

    Why don't you just learn how to build one from scratch? Let's see, green.... So we can't do the old ruby rod laser of old. What did they make green lasers out of when I was a kid? Kryptonite?

    Maybe he can use his overpowered green laser to superheat moisture in the rocks so they'll explode without him having to swing the hammer. Or, at least, he can use it to counteract the prison guards' red laser aiming devices; a brown spot wouldn't show up on that nice tan he'll have from the rock pile. :biggrin:

    I love thinkgeek.com I have been going there for years now, though I never bought anything. I have wanted to for quite some time, now I habe to save for what I want :biggrin:

    Same here. They have a bunch of neat stuff but I've yet to ever buy anything. I'd like to at least get one of their neat t-shirts.

    Can you Canadians send down some weed for everyone while you're at it? And some Cuban cigars and Maple the Bear beanie babies? Oh, and the entirety of the Alberta tar sands oil reserves, if you don't mind.

    First 3, no problem. I'm an Albertan, though, and I'll thank you to keep your greedy little Yankee mitts out of my tar sands. :grumpy:

    On the other hand, I'll trade you a dozen baby seals for 2 Louisville Sluggers (but you have to deliver first).
