Remember the "They Fight Crime" generator?* I was reading LP's condensed guide to Tokyo or something and it sparked this:

Blind in one eye, Lafcadio Hearn is a famous writer, expert on Creole cooking and voodoo, and collector of occult tales, fluent in Japanese and French. Born into a samurai family, dapper and gloomy Natsume Soseki is a renowned novelist and accomplished poet, voracious reader, and teacher, fluent in English. Together, they fight crime!



*actually I don't think this is the original one, but maybe it is.

Someone on Metafilter implied that in their home country, which I gather from their profile is Canada, you couldn't mail a letter by leaving it in the mailbox outside of your house (assuming you have a personal mailbox; I don't currently, since I live in a townhouse, so I have to drop it in the shared slot next to my locked mail box...but when I lived in my parents' house, you mailed letters by putting them in the mailbox and raising the "flag" on the side of the mailbox).

Are they mad or ... ?

EDIT: Yes, I know you can do that in many non-urban parts of the US. I'm curious about whether, in fact, you can't in Canada or other places.

OK SO

I guess we've established why the USPS is losing so much money then. :P

My Australian LJ friends are OK, right? I don't have a lot, and the only one whose location I can think of offhand is in Queensland, which is not where the fires are.
