[Personal Shitinomics] Don’t Forget Your License When Exporting Your Poo To China

I attach below part of the declaration letter I had to give the BGI to allow me to send my sample of personal poo Hong Kong (Figure 1). It was relatively painless, once I sent this letter to the BGI contact person, I did not have to do anything, just wait. However, I was uncertain of whether I would get it, it took 11 days for my license to come through (Figure 2). I have omitted some parts of both letters just to keep the privacy of my contract.
