    I am glad you shared that because I read an article sometime back on the bar codes, but could not remember what was what. They think they are being sneaky.

    Posting this was a really good idea. Well done.

    EDIT: What is wrong with you people. Who is giving all those thumbs down? Support foreign economies instead of your own - not too smart.

    No, but if I knew your full name and date of birth I could probably come pretty close to knowing your driver's license number.

    That is interesting. Thanks for sharing it. Of course we are all interested (or should be) in the origin of our purchases.
