    Un cancelled/voided stamps twice in a row?

    I recently got a book in the mail from another person (thanks to my wonderful book trading club website) and the stamps weren't cancelled/voided. I thought to myself "sweet, free shipping for the next book I send." But then today I got another book and the stamps weren't voided/cancelled either. Is this some sort of huge coincidence or is there something special about media mail or what? And have you ever seen 80 cent stamps before? I thought it was pretty cool.

    Yeah, you see stuff like that and think "awesome, windfall!", but then you realize it's just 50c...

    It's more than just 50c, don. You don't need to go to the post office to get a new stamp, so you save gas. Think of the savings!

    Paperback books cost $1.59 to mail. It's quite nice. I get two free 80 centers, 4 39 centers, and 2 2 centers.

    My post office is in easy walking distance.

    Ugh, that's confusing. We just have 50c stamps, a few obscure ones no-one ever uses and those ones that are just a printout sticker.

    Yeah, the post office keeps raising the price of stamps, so they have to keep issuing stamps in crazy denominations. I've heard that the Japanese have one of the best postal systems, with a price to mail a letter at $.80 it gets where it's going quickly.


    It's a misconception that Canada is Google Earthable, since it is actually on the underside of the tectonic plate.

    no...googlemaps and googlespyonyoufromspace crashes my system everytime i use it...you mean you don't know the latitude and longitude of your city without consulting a shaky ggogleplugin? what if you were lost and sea and only had a chronometer and a sextant to find your way home?
