I'm not, and I've more than once been asked by customs officers for example if I'm carrying "big knives" or "pistols". No kidding, "pistols". That was last September. I said to the officer "Are you out of your mind? That would get me a five stretch!" and she waved me on through without even searching the bike.
Definitely angelic. Maybe you need to get out more if you haven't seen kids out of their heads on sniffing butane. A year or two ago I bought a lighter from a 'pound shop' kind of place called Amber Value. It was really a great lighter for very little money so I went back a couple of weeks later, picked up five from the shelf and headed for the checkout. They refused to sell them to me, an old guy with grey hair, because the law says so. I felt really silly because I actually knew that but I'd completely forgotten and it just didn't occur to me that the shopkeeper would be breaking the law by selling me a few lighters.The idea that carrying meths (other than boarding a plane with it) could be considered as "Iffy" is just incomprehensible to me. I go to the hardware, and buy a bottle of meths, and catch the bus home, where is the problem? It might be white spirit, it might be a small gas cylinder, you need to be able to transport these things and although I have seen these really silly stories where an ignorant bus driver has turned off somebody carrying a pot of paint, that is the exception not the rule.
People do the damndest things, and the rest of us have to put up with the consequences.
If it means that one or two kids don't die this weekend because we did nothing to protect them from themselves I think I'll gladly suffer the odd little inconvenience.
And after all, we on this forum are supposed to be the more resourceful sort, aren't we?
