actually, yes. shortly after parcel post was introduced in the early 1900s, several parents sent their small children though the mail. this was done with the help of sympathetic postal workers, most commonly over short distances in rural areas. and it was cost effective—in 1913, it cost just 15 cents to mail an 8-month-old baby to his grandmother.

before you get any big ideas, though, know that the fun came to an end in 1920 when the postmaster general officially outlawed sending people through the mail. how lame.

yes! during harsh times of slavery, a man named henry brown in virginia lost his family to a plantation in north carolina in 1848. he was devastated, and refused to let the same thing happen to himself. so, he built a box and "mailed himself to freedom." he was shipped to his friends in pennsylvania and lived free the rest of his life.

henry brown (age 42), an african-american slave from virginia, successfully escaped in a shipping box sent north to the free state of pennsylvania in 1849. he was known thereafter as henry "box" brown. it is illegal to ship a person, so don't even try! that includes shipping yourself, too. neither the us postal service, fedex, nor ups allow for “human mail,” and neither do any smaller regional carriers. charles mckinley (age 25) shipped himself from new york city to dallas, texas in a box in 2003.

yes. here is some background information i found on the web

one of the earliest tales of beating the mail system occurred in 1849 with the escape of virginia slave henry “box” brown. one night, brown had a dream to “mail [himself] to a place where there are no slaves.” with $86 in hand, brown enlisted the help of a local storekeeper to box him up with water and biscuits and send him north to freedom. james miller mckim, a philadelphia abolitionist, agreed to receive the box. the trip began on march 23. while the journey only lasted 27 hours, brown’s box was passed from wagon to railroad to steamboat and back again. the box often ended up upside down, but brown remained quiet enough to avoid discovery. on march 24, brown arrived in philadelphia and was released as a free man.

that wasn’t the only case of shipping people by mail. in 1914, 5-year-old may pierstorff was sent from grangeville, idaho to visit her grandmother in lewiston, idaho. when it came time to buy tickets, pierstorff’s parents discovered that sending their daughter through parcel post was cheaper than buying fare. pierstorff, who weighed less than the 50-pound weight limit, was sent through the mail at the chicken rate. before pierstorff boarded the train, her parents clipped 53 cents to her coat and sent her on her way. upon arrival in lewiston, the postmaster personally delivered the young girl to her grandmother’s house. six years later, the practice of shipping humans through parcel post became illegal.

ok. this is gonna be totally off the wall. it's just an illustration of what letterman would call "stupid human tricks." after work one day we were sitting at the local pub sipping down a few and just kind of rolling this and rolling that idea around. i had an idea that we were actually going to try to follow through on. i told the guys i wanted to mail myself to australia. at work, we received various shipments of differently sized crates. no one cared what happened to them and a lot of folks took them home for firewood. the crate in question to was about 5x5x5. the idea was to pack me up with a small port-a-potty. loading me up with about 5 cases of water and whatever non perishable food we could fit in there. so basically outside of the potty i'd be wallowing in junk food and water. we drilled a few holes so i could see outside and possibly get some garbage out of the way depending on what i could see out the peep holes. pitch it overboard as jetsam. maybe even push off the lid and stretch my legs if the weather was nice enough at night. so we were all ready to go. we had the crate at a friend's garage and one thing led to anther and we all got drunk. the next morning we had to go to work and on the way home we decided to leave the crate for another time, which didn't happen. "oid lave to have met some new blokes in the land down undah." oh well.
