Just Another Reason to Stick to Carry-On Baggage

Have you ever wondered what happens to unclaimed/lost baggage?
I haven't. Still, I find myself agog over this website. That's right, it's the UNCLAIMED BAGGAGE STORE.

Go take a look-see. When you get past the immediate feelings of revulsions over a company making profits off of the loss of air denizens, you'll be amazed at what you can find.

The prices are still too steep for me. But people pack some pretty crazy stuff. I wonder if they have an 'adult' section?
Then again, who wants to own a pre-used battery operated toy?

They do have a list of unusual items, however. My favorite?
  • "A special camera designed for NASA’s Space Shuttle was discovered in an unclaimed piece of luggage."
  • "A guidance system for an F16 fighter jet valued at a quarter of a million dollars showed up in unclaimed baggage"
Great. It makes me feel safe and secure that the best stalemate to allowing top secret, multi-million dollar government projects from leaving the country is through the unpackers of the Unclaimed Baggage Center.

Makes me wonder, though, what happens to unclaimed baggage in the rest of the world. Given to kings and despots? Laundered through drug cartels?

Wonderful. Something else to keep me up at night.

    What I Live By:
    We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. Through the unknown, unremembered gate When the last of earth left to discover Is that which was the beginning; At the source of the longest river The voice of the hidden waterfall And the children in the apple-tree Not known, because not looked for But heard, half-heard, in the stillness Between two waves of the sea. Quick now, here, now, always— A condition of complete simplicity (Costing not less than everything) And all shall be well and All manner of thing shall be well When the tongues of flame are in-folded Into the crowned knot of fire And the fire and the rose are one. -T.S. Eliot "Little Gidding"
