Another example of extreme conservatism in action


“So what?” you say.  “It’s just a mailbox.”  Ah….but did you not notice the protective plastic that is still on 90% of the boxes?  That cover will NEVER be removed.  They got this goofy idea to protect the metal to the point where in a few year time, you simply can NOT remove it without damaging the mailbox door.  I’ve seen this many times, on things like city utility boxes, even the stainless/chrome plating on moped mufflers…all of it hardened by heat/UV exposure and now looking like crap.

Oh, the one that doesn’t have the stupid plastic on it….that one’s mine.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!

    1. Thanks. Actually, It wasn’t really supposed to change here but Gravtar is confusing to use. Was trying to change it for another site. The image is part of a tattoo I have actually.
