Ludicrous. I remember when stamps were 29Ã‚Â¢ If stamps ever reach $1, I may never send a letter again. A shame, because letters always seemed more romantic than emails.
Think about it carefully for a minute. Sure, $1 is a lot more than what we are used to paying to send a letter, but is it a fair deal? If you actually consider what you get for your stamp, you're basically ripping off the post office. You are paying for someone to come to your house, take something from you and deliver it to any other place in the entire country within a few days. Even if it cost $2 that would be a great deal.When something is heavily discounted or subsidized, people get used to paying a certain price for something without considering what it's actually worth. Then when the price changes to more closely match the real value, people get mad. Take gas for example. Even at $34a gallon, you are getting a bargain on gas. Also Skype, who was giving away their service for a whole year, now charges for US calls. It isn't a matter of them making it too expensive now, it's a matter of it being too cheap before.The post is basically giving their services away for almost nothing. You really can't complain unless you are a junk mailer. If you are a junk mailer, you deserve it.
I'm a little surprised that people in this thread are talking about stamps rather than Lovecraft ^_^;;
Katsu: Wow. Just wow. There's nothing worse in anime (there is, but just go with me) than when the Japanese try to squeeze the whole pop star/guitar villain motif in there.
The first horror novels I ever read were from R.L. Stine's Fear Street series, my last year in elementary. A neighbor who was in junior high lent me one of her books. Goosebumps was for kiddies then lol. I did try them but they didn't have the same kick. Sort of watered down or something. Then the TV show came out and it was all the rage for everyone else. I liked Are You Afraid of The Dark? and The Twilight Zone better. I read a mixture of the older and then of more contemporary novels, the older stuff being the required reading in school like Edgar Allen Poe (which is who I started thinking about while listening to this episode). Lovecraft sounds like Poe and a really creepy episode of The Twilight Zone (like the one where the main character had to live on as a ventriloquist doll, ::shudders::) rolled together.
I bet (I truly hope not though) that there is a bookstore somewhere around there that actually sells one of the bullshit Necronomicons. If I ever do come into a situation like that, I would bereallycreeped out/

I know, but I'm saying that it will be super creepy when I find a Necronomicon in a place that was directly used for a story by H.P. Lovecraft.
