…The Thing Quarterly is a unique bit of news?

The Thing Quarterly

The Thing Quarterly is a ‘periodical’ that arrives in the form of an object. For each issue, an artist, writer, musician or filmmaker is invited by the editors (Jonn Herschend and Will Rogan) to create a useful object that somehow incorporates text. The object is then reproduced and hand wrapped at a wrapping party, and mailed to subscribers with the help of the United States Postal Service.

Previous issues include a cutting board, a deck of playing cards, and a mug, so you never know exactly what you’re going to get, though it’s pretty much guaranteed to be unique, fun and/or awesome.

…The USPS will deliver anything?

Mail Dollars

Ever wonder what the limits are on the types of things you can get to someone else via the United States Postal Service? Improbable Research decided to find out by conducting some experimental testing and sending a variety of unpackaged items to U.S. destinations, appropriately stamped for weight and size. The results are pretty amazing, and I must say I’m impressed with the USPS.
