    I'm going to be flying with a stick of uninstalled RAM. I bought it for my friend, and am going to install it for him when I get to my destination.

    My question is where should I pack it? Will it be damaged if it goes through the XRAY machine that caary-on baggage goes through? Or should I pack it in checked luggage, although that get's XRAY'ed also.

    Anyone do this before?

    Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?
    Static bag. Definately need a static bag. FI they question you, say "Yes, it's a piece of RAM for a computer, please don't xray it without the bag, and please handle it carefully and do not let static electricity to hit it.
