“Forever” stamps

May 16, 2008 1 comment

The US postal service has raised the First Class mail postage a few times in past few years. I kind of lost track of at what price I bought my stamps since some of them do not have a face value printed on them. Today I asked an post office staff. She told me that those stamps without a face value are called “Forever” stamps, and they can be used no matter what the current potage rate is. Great!

Correction (7/1/2008): that staff was wrong. There is only one forever stamp: http://www.usps.com/communications/newsroom/2007stamps/forever/welcome.htm

让开门变得更有乐趣一些

这也许能防止你的孩子过于轻易的为陌生人开门,或者让门外的推销员等得不耐烦而离开。也许只是一个愚人节的笑话。不过,在这个各种稀奇古怪的产品大行其道的今天,或许真的有人喜欢呢。

看到这个产品,我们第一件想到的事是:「我怎么没想到!」在我们看了这么多个试图搞定插头互斥定律的延长线后,这个既小又美而且应该很快就可以上市的Powramid E-900H成为我们最新的第一名了。当然,像保护盖啦LED指示灯该有的都有,而且还会有多种颜色可供选择,价格则是在17~25美金之间。
