International transactions

I find it amazing how in this day and age, we can perform transactions internationally with barely any limitations.  Granted, I’m talking about low-dollar items, and not high dollar.  Back when I was growing up, shipping something from a foreign country to the USA (or reverse) was an expensive and potentially disastrous activity due to postal surcharges, package audits, border seizes, etc.  Now I can order Absinthe from France, Razor blades from Russia, and random trinkets from many random countries throughout the world with barely any issue at all.

I’m glad I lived to see this day.  Even though things are still bad, it’s nice to see improvements.
