Who wears laced with their dress shoes?

So UPS brought this today...



Why did the company who shipped it use a box that is 5-6 times larger than necessary?  Not that it cost me anything [extra], it's just strange is all... ???

If Verizon only made the 300/150 cheaper...

Dude that is crazy. What is the price for 150?

Quote from: The Life of Ivan Neronov
[Ecclesiastics] conspired against him because they hated his teaching for its zealous emphasis on proper Christian conduct: with great courage he denounced all whom he saw behaving in an ungodly fashion... [As such] he was deprived of his priestly rank, bound in iron chains, and broken down in jails.

No, I rarely eat from pizza franchises like Papa John's, Domino's, or Pizza Hut, but they're the only type of business I've seen with such "progress meters".

I get a moderate amount of books shipped to me, but I do not eat them.
