Boing Boing: Survival of the fittest mailbox: “Ever since these events, I’ve been paying careful attention to mailboxes. It’s interesting to see how they’re fortified. I want to make a mailbox that can withstand the brute force and misplaced ingenuity of the delinquents that prowl around after nightfall.”
When you’re done with that, on with part 2. Over here in the UK, we have letterboxes in our doors, and the postie has to walk all the way to the door to deliver. We also expect paper boys/girls to deliver papers through the letterbox, not just fling the newspaper somwhere in the vicinity of your front lawn.
