    With all those arrest warrants for Queen Elsa popping up elsewhere, we’ve had a visit from her down here in Dallas for the last few days.

    When I was little, my mom took me to the dentist and he showed me pictures of what would happen to my teeth if I kept sucking my thumb. Quit cold turkey.

    They get the cheaper rate, because the post office won’t take it back if it’s marked ‘return to sender’. I’m not even sure if they will forward it. If they were charged the 1st class rate, the USPS would have to spend more time and money actually sending all that stuff back to the sender. It’s probably not all that cost effective to return all that mail, and if they sender was really that concerned about it, they’d pay the extra.

    There’s something else most people don’t consider. Less junk mail being mailed means less junk mail being printed. That means less business for all the printing companies that do that kind of work. That means layoffs and some places even going out of business.

    From what I’m hearing these days, the USPS is doing fine financially. Most of their recent financial problems were from some employee retirement health care thing for people retiring 20-30 years from now. The federal government was forcing them to put money into it, even though it already had more than enough money to sustain itself. I guess they got that worked out.

    The problem many people don’t realize is that behind the scenes, the USPS is a 24/7 operation. Mail is constantly being sorted and dispatched across the country. So any day the mail isn’t delivered, it gets backed up. Sunday already creates a small backup, but add in Saturday it gets bigger. Not to mention all those Monday federal holidays. Then you wouldn’t get any mail for 3 straight days. That would really suck for people waiting on something important.

    Wrong. There are a bunch of towns named Moscow. They’re all over the country.

    You mean the song with notoriously hard to understand lyrics? Come on, Weird Al even made fun of that in his parody version.

    Nope. The company is Suidobashi Heavy Industries. The suit is actually real (and really for sale on Amazon Japan).

    Actually that’s not true. There are numerous articles that state that you are more likely to remember a lecture if you take handwritten notes vs typing or recording the lecture. So the old fashion way is actually the smarter way.
