That law never came to pass. I'd forgotten all about that.
You'd sure as shit know about it if it was real.

It was probably from something VampireLesbos posted.

there are stories about people getting laptops confiscated for having movies and stuff on them, and ipods if they couldnt prove they owned all the music on them, but i doubt its a regular occurance.

they can check and confiscate them if they feel like it though, best bet is to unplug something inside when you go through customs so it wont boot if they feel like having a look through. obv doesnt apply to ipods though...

To be on the safe side, put it in a plastic bag and swallow it just before you go through customs.

been through american customs maybe 20 times.. never had them look at or ask about a computer or ipod so i dont think there is anything to worry about. last time i went into the US (in june) i asked the immigration officer if swine flu was a big worry there and he said 'hey, in la, the only thing we are worried about is basketball'

I had my mp3 player going when I went through the other week, didn't seem to care. The dude was more worried about the fact that since I was only in transit for 4 hours I didn't have an address he could put into the system... it's a little bit cunty there, what with finger scanning and being photographed, Europe is much more pleasant.
I think it's lint.

haha i had a friend that didnt know his friends address to put down, he spent 2 hours trying to call them so he could write down the right address. a cleaning lady came up and asked what his problem was, he told her and said 'oh thats easy'. she wrote 'motel 6, airport' and he went straight through

They're a bit up tight really, I thought the whole online thing (where I had already provided all that info) was supposed to make the whole lot easier. The guy I was dealing with had to call over his supervisor and they were all like shit he's in transit for four hours before heading to frankfurt, how do we give that an address? Surely that must happen many times daily at LAX? Like I'm gonna bail on my flight to Frankfurt to do crimes in LA, hmmm probably should have!

Really? Last time I was in the states at San Francisco airport I had to take off my shoes and socks, which was weird. First time through LAX I was held up for a couple of hours as I didn't have an onwards ticket, thanks to a travel agent in Mexico City insisting it would be cheaper and easier to get an onwards flight in LA. I don't think he had buying it in an office in LAX on his mind, which happened after a long but reasonably friendly interrogation. They seemed less strict as far as safety concerns than San Francisco though.

I had to ditch shoes and socks going through security to depart LAX. The place stunk.

i love the arrivals card for the us (well when i went through in 2007ish), one of the yes/no questions goes something like : were you, between the years 1938-1945 a member of or supporter of the nazi party in germany?

or are you a member of a terrorist organisation? yes/no?

are you smuggling people or drugs? yes/no?

dang, you got me...
