Upon being spotchecked at Bangkok airport and being found to be wearing on my garments an above the allowance amount of various animal hairs (pet-sitting duties), something like this might come in handy -

A laminated photo ID card issued when signing up for a HB account, with on the reverse "Do not be alarmed. <name> is a member of Halfbakery. If he/she has in their possession, for example, a superconducting cheese disk, or blueprints for a device to accelerate Chihuahuas to near c velocities, it is all part of a (at best borderline) legitimate research project. Please release <name> and call off the SWAT team. This way up."

       I'm just having a Bindi croissant tatooed on my forehead!

       These are going to have to have some bizarrely halfbaked form of anti-counterfeiting to be legitimate.   

       Also a QR code for each baker's user page should be somewhere.   

       And would you let [beanangel] into _your_ country?

       "Some versions of this card may be genuine"

       Haha, wonderful,, how about a series of cards each to explain the previous card.   

       -Halfbakery is on the Internet- -The Internet is on computers- -Computers are connected into a network called the Internet- *pause* -A network is a complex group of interconnections- *pause* etc.

       I would let [beanangel] into my _home_, provided it agreed not to touch anything without permission, just for the opportunity to study such a strange and unique creature.

       Forget the card, just carry a laminated croissant.

       I have a halfbakery apron, that I wear on international trips. It earns me some strange looks from Customs officials but they leave me alone.

       //It earns me some strange looks//   

       Perhaps if you wore some additional clothing as well, the strange looks would diminish.

       Given that airports and aircraft are by and large climate controlled, the practicality of turning up at check-in wearing just a bath robe, lycra swimwear, or surgical greens bears further consideration.

       I occasionally have problems with my aftershave (isopropanol 90%), and my hammock (small parachute).   

       So yeah send me a card and, in hindsight considering that my wet-weather campfire-starter could have received much more attention than it ever actually did, better add the body-tattoo stencil as well.
