    You gotta love how everyone passes the buck! I often wonder what happens to those packages that get "lost in the mail". Maybe a postal worker that decided to quit that day :lol: :beer:

    Yeah the post office has had a bad rep for a long time. I think it was a Johnny Carson joke where he said that the answer to the nuclear waste problem was to simply give it to the post office with no forwarding or return address; what they didn't lose they'd find a way to destroy; problem solved. ;)

    @Sorvo :

    That's one of the possibilities. The others are postmen hoarders who instead of delivering all the mail start hoarding a part of it somewhere instead, or throwing it away, etc.

    Yeah that's a mess. In my case I believe the guy from the Post Office. If they received it they'd have at least left a note that they'd tried to deliver it and nobody answered so please pick it up at the post office. I've been checking mail three times a day since I ordered it and we've been getting regular mail but not this.

    It's been a while since I posted in the RBP. Nice to see a lot of familiar faces.

    Hey @Taluntain, why did you go out and torch Melania's statue?

    Did I miss something? :shake:

    Edit: Ah, I see. This has gone completely unmentioned in the media here, interestingly.

    Yeah, I didn't mean for that to go anywhere; I just thought it funny and figured Slovenians would know about it. The statue is pretty ugly IMO, even before it was torched :)

    The "statue" is (was) an embarrassment made by some so-called artist that nobody here took seriously when it was put up. Honestly, it's viewed as a bad joke here. Burning it up as firewood would be the most productive use of it because nobody really wanted to look at that eyesore.

    Yeah sorry for going mad. I'm just stir-crazy after a long-cold winter followed by MORE isolation thanks to Covid19. Plus I live in a neighboring city to Minneapolis where Floyd was killed and everybody went nuts. No problems happened in my neighborhood but all the local stores for a couple miles boarded up and closed during the riots.

    As somebody who sometimes likes to pretend to be an artist I can say that I have difficulty recognizing the artistic value in that thing. But then I won't even pretend to claim I'm an art connoisseur. I just know what appeals to me as art.

    Hey Silvery, good to see you dropping in. Hope all is well in your world.

    It's amazing how time flies when you can measure it against your kids . . .
