comment What's the worst that can happen when attempting to fly with double-edged razors?
I guess in most countries you could always play dumb and pretend it's an honest mistake -- unless you act suspiciously and the razors are not in any way concealed, the security shouldn't care all that much. You will probably run into much more trouble if you pass the security without problems and sometime later you are caught "red-handed" with the razors, e.g. on the plane. In typical circumstances, that shouldn't happen though, unless you flash them in front of the cabin crew.

comment What are the consequences of a US citizen overstaying a Schengen visa?
You can give answers according to experience -- everybody here does that. The wording of your other answer gives an impression that it's okay to do it and nobody would care, which is in fact wrong. That's why it has been downvoted -- but not deleted.

comment Is there a website to minimize overall agony for N travelers at once?
@choster: Your answer is not that irrelevant, but with Philip's permission, I'd roll back the question to its previous form. Generally, changing the question context is frowned upon, particularly when there are already answers which are to be rendered obsolete.
