While doing research for a super-secret Elephant Larry project, I happened across this experiment from the Annals of Improbable Research.

Basically, they took a bunch of ridiculous stuff and tried to mail it. I've always, and will continue to maintain, that the postal service is excellent. Thirty-seven cents to send something across the country? Amazing!

One time my pal Jordan and I, who both had long-distance girlfriends in college, decided to mail stuff to them.

We went to the thrift store and bought all kinds of weird shit... a painting of a kitten, a clear plastic photo frame... we put appropriate postage on the stuff, addressed it all, and it almost all got delivered.

His girlfriend thought this was bizarre beyond words. Mine thought it was great. I'm still with mine, he dumped his like a sack of potatoes.
