Just to illustrate how well packaged paint can limit leaks, a picture provided only this weekend by a customer.

This was one of four pots shipped to a customer in Belgium, and the only one of the four to leak. Before shipping I had tightened all the screw caps, bagged each pot in a separate bag, taped down the bag, and put the padded box containing the paints inside another padded box. I'm not sure what else I could have done to prevent leakage of the pot, but the leak didn't make it any further.

You can see how *five* of those going off at the same time would utterly devastate a sorting office though…

Clearly a major disaster narrowly averted! Posties rejoice!

(On a serious note – good packaging there!)

And this is what the PO and EU anti terrorism policy makers are afraid of. LOL bunch of pillocks.
