    Just have a question. Don't most, or all, international packages have to have a customs form? You are literally supposed to say I am shipping 1 sock, a toothbrush, 3 pieces of hair, and 2 pairs of Jean's. Extremely specific. Why is the USPS not allowed to search these packages when the contents are already "revealed" to them?
