Pirates and Postal Workers

It turns out that a new graph has been made, linking temperature increase to the cost of posting a letter in the US. This could be a phyletic gradualism/punctuated equilibrium relationship or just plain heresy.

It does raise the problem that, with more research, posties may need to be accorded venerated status (but not as much as pirates).
That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans. A European says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?" An American says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with him? - Sir Terry Pratchett

The great thing about Beaker is his ability to provoke while still being decorous, or at least within acceptable rules of conduct - Qwertyuiopasd

this might have been true, but with recent rise in pirate activity, the world temp has been reported by some as having dropped in the past 10 years, while postage rates only head in one direction ever...UP.

Since I retired from being a Postie, one of my friends is now a Postie.

I delivered mail in Adelaide on a motorbike, she delivers mail in Holland on foot.

It is my considered view that the fact that the motorbike has been taken out of the equation has contributed to the fall in greenhouse gas emissions. :grin:
