For as long as there are an established set of rules that govern the world, there will be people looking to find ways to break them. So it comes as little surprise that some continue to find ways to transport things that they aren’t supposed to in rather creative and original ways. But even as casts, coffins and breasts implants have served as clever, crafty vessels by which illegal substances and materials have travelled, smugglers continue to return to the ‘classic’ technique of simply stuffing items inside of themselves in order to sneak them from point A to point B.
Indeed, using oneself as a travel vessel for illegal contraband actually has a fairly rich, deep history, boasting roots in medical literature that date as far back as 1973. In fact, the trend known as ‘body packing’ is actually believed to have been adopted into practice by drug trafficking mules at least a decade prior to that. Body packers are typically defined as people who, either voluntarily or through coercion, elect to swallow or insert drug-filled packets – often in plastic bags but sometimes even in condoms – into their body cavity for purposes of transportation. While incredibly stupid and dangerous to the health of the packer, there is an undeniable effectiveness to the stealth nature of a tactic that keeps the contraband mostly protected from security scanning technology.
As with anything, there’s an art form to body packing. Not that it’s recommended by anyone with even a shred of common sense, but humans are believed to be physically capable of carrying up to five pounds worth of concealed stuff in their gastrointestinal tract. The most experienced of drug mules can actually train their bodies to suit their needs, expanding their rectal capacities and even building up a resistance that helps resist the urge to defecate. Typically, any packed contraband will pass through the mule’s system in a day or two, although intestinal fortitude and desperate purpose can extend that as long as five days in some cases.
Of course, it doesn’t take a genius to realize that things can go very wrong when literally carrying baggies of concealed drugs inside your body. The risk of irritating or damaging intestines or even internal organs looms large as a possibility, particularly for amateur packers who neglect to put the necessary care into securing the stored goods in a relatively safe manner. If smuggling drugs, there exists a danger that the packet could rupture and lead to an internal drug overdose. With any substance, it’s possible that a packet rubbing against a cavity of the body can lead to symptoms of gastrointestinal obstruction or perforation.
In any case, it is difficult to look at these 10 weird items that people have actually tried to smuggle inside their body and not view body packing as an incredibly poorly thought out idea. After all, it’s not like these 10 people are appearing on this list because they were actually successful in getting away with their crimes!
