    That's the standard but no one is going to test your boxes to see if they meet it. I do see a box or 2 each day that gets a bit crushed, so I'd really recommend that styrofoam liner and probably an...

    If they were looking for a way to monetize their services, this isn't it. I think that they are in for a big downfall over this, as people will simply seek out another free picture hosting solution.

    I was curious about where you live and what pet stores you were talking about, since I grew up and worked in the pet industry in central Jersey, many years ago. Turns out you weren't near where I...

    I'm just saying that employees at local post offices don't have the ability to change scans once they are posted. Now, someone else higher up in the chain might be able to do that, but we wouldn't...

    None of my friends report catching them on the gulf coast by me or I would think about setting up a tank for one. They have a tank full of them at Seaworld and they are so nice.
