Why bother with that?
Me: "Ok, here's a package for [insert target city]."
UPS: "Awfully heavy for its size. Whatcha got in it?"
Me: "X-ray film, heavily lead-lined so your scanners don't expose it.
Also some GPS electronics. It's for a hobbyist friend."
UPS: <checks x-ray> "Why are the electronics wired to the box?"
Me: "Mounting. Electronics *are* kinda fragile, you know, so I used the
box to protect the electronics from getting bounced around."
Of course, it ain't actually X-ray film inside the sealed lead box, but
how's anyone gonna know without cracking the box? And, after the fact,
it's not like there would be much evidence, especially if I paid in
cash, used a fake name, and dropped it off in a UPS office in some
county (or even state) I never intend to visit again.
