how am i supposed to ship my mustard gas across the country then?

sigh. chumptastic was down for most of the day ’cause my building’s power was out yet again. the sign said that it would be turned off from “10 until finish”. descriptive.

i was in my old office for a while this afternoon for the first time in ages. no one’s moved in since i moved out, so a lot of my old stuff is still in there – it’s like a time capsule. i found some old issues of golden words (from 2000), one containing an article about maxim that sofi wrote that apparently also got published in the toronto star. cool.

i also found this:


it’s such a handy pamphlet. without it i might never have known that i can’t send the following through the mail:

  • mustard gas
  • fish meal
  • formaldehyde
  • cryogenic liquids
  • fiberglass repair kits
  • self-inflating life preservers
  • asbestos
  • hepatitis or hiv
  • arsenic

this pamphlet reminded me of a postal experiment site i found a while ago. it’s quite funny – people mailed a variety of things through the mail to test the limits of the USPS. i thought i was cool when i mailed a letter with 50 one cent stamps on it.

    if i had just seen this pamphlet sooner…all of those people that i mailed envelopes of hiv to could have been saved.
