  1. Been using the Sonic for at least a decade. The batter lasts a long time. I was away for a month with it and only the last few days did it actually die where it wouldn’t turn on. I love the idea of the UV sanitizing! But sadly can’t upgrade right now.

    For makeup, it’s different in the States now. Makeup is counted separately. You don’t have to separate it, it’s allowed just as is wherever you have it, like in your handbag etc.

  2. Most of my family lives in England. I live in the US. My daughter got a passport at a month old. And most of my friends don’t have one.

  3. I live in the state of Michigan. People in this state often travel to Mackinac Island. It is an Island just east of the Mackinac bridge. The bridge connects the lower, and upper peninsula. There are many companies that supply boat rides to the island. Mackinac Island is old historic island with no motor vehicles. The only way to travel is Horse drawn buggies, bikes, and foot power. Christopher Reeve of Superman fame filmed a move called “Somewhere in time” on the Island. Check out their website. https://www.mackinacisland.org/

  4. You are correct that most Americans don’t have passports. They are expensive and it’s just so easy to stay in America and visit various places within.

  5. The 80% figure is very old. Prior to 9/11 we could go to mexico, Canada, and many of the carribean islands with only a birth certificate so lots of people didn’t have the need for one. Since that law changed, many more Americans have been getting passports. Now approximately 40% of Americans have passports and that figure is constantly growing.

  6. Very helpful video lots of handy information. I am not surprised by your figures on the number of Americans who don’t have passports, our family of 5 has only our one daughter that has a passport. I did my traveling to Canada and the Bahamas before 9/11, when we didn’t need one to go to those countries. Great job again!! Love you guys!!
