Go to a modern well funded post office some time. They're incredibly efficient.


perhaps you live on a different world as I, but "efficient" businesses do not lose 1.9B USD every three months.

it does wonders in sand traps for removing footprints...a different beast to be sure but come on..."no known technique"? :)
