Before we get on to the riveting topic of the post, amid all the talk of Movember I thought it might be prudent to acknowledge the moustachial efforts of a fine band of individuals, being they who grew a mo this year and raised funds for charity.

What an ace collection of mo-work, wouldn’t you agree?

Right, now the prompt for this post was just the Amazon delivery I got this morning – a fairly big box turned up, and I was thinking “Awesome! Pressies!!” somewhat foolishly.  I had ordered something, but being a fairly small article it seemed sensible that it’d be in the small postal bag that also turned up this morning.

The unboxing can be seen below, and without doubt earns Amazon a Packaging Pillock award*

unboxing

Yes, they sent me an A4-sized box, about 10cm deep, containing 2 sticks of laptop RAM: actual measurement (minus their own plastic packaging) approx 2.5 cm by 5cm.

And if I hadn’t had that delivered to the office, you can bet that the postman would’ve had to stick a “While You Were Out” card through the mail slot at home.
