e-packet works very well with small parcels / packages. And it's relatively inexpensive.
The few times they sent vial DHL, it must have been delivered via the legendary "slow boat from China".

I needed a good laugh for today, here it is, the "perpetual motion wind powered car" (banana) (banana) (banana)

Perhaps the "wind" comes from excess consumption of beans and cabbage (sick) It's all in good fun (lol)

I don't get it at all. (???) :|

This idea has been proposed by a Swedish MP a few years ago. Put a wind generator on the car, let the current generated drive an electric motor that pushes the car forward and makes the propellers turn the generator. Geniously! (y)

There was this member of the Swedish parliament that actually proposed that kind of solution ... :/

It's rather amusing/frightening when politicians try and dabble in things they're clueless about.... like IT or medicine =:o

The Swedish State organisation, responsible for transportation (Roads/Water/Air) outsourced all handling of databases to IBM and Czech republic. Among the data delivered were many classified, like full data of fighter pilots and undercover policemen, of military installations and even lists of people who had been treated for psychological illness .... (sick)


Taking of illness, sign reads WATED HAIRDRESSER UNIVERSAL (unisex) WITHOUT HARMFUL HABITS.

Gotta "love" DHL - they can deilver a package halfway around the world, from Guangzhou, China all the way to Atlanta GA, in about 60 hours.

BUT......

It has been languishing in Atlanta for nearly four days, now. Just keep on getting these rather nebulous and repetitive notifications that it has been "Forwarded for Delivery" since Friday ,when it was originally scheduled to be delivered to my door "by the end of the day". :/ (???) (evil) (n) >:o @= p[

UPDATE 7 AUG 2017 It finally arrived at 11:30 AM, it was transferred to USPS, to deliver from Atlanta to Hooterville ;-) (banana) (banana) (banana) (banana) (banana) (banana) (banana) (banana)

No, this is not the "sweet and warm, resistant to listen to" unit which I posted further down the page O:)

Pimp yo' ride, Post Apocalyptic LADA:

If you like post-apocalytpic movies with zombies, or you are a fan of Mad Max franchise then you should appreciate this modified Lada 2102.

It was artificially aged to look like very rusty car (in fact this is a special paint, not rust).

Also rear wheels replaced with bigger ones, and the best thing it’s fully street legal. So you can meet on Russian streets.

I never saw anything like that in Russia and I am surprised that the car is registered in St Petersburg Oblast (county). In Irkutsk or Vladivostok I wouldn't be surprised to see something like that.

However I saw a bigger model on the Palace Square in Piter ...
