Don't ever play Tetris with a Reaper packer

43 posts in this topic

You'll lose. I got a package today, and I don't know how they got it all into the box. I took it out and tried to put it all back in, and I can't duplicate the result. It's just not possible. It simply doesn't fit.

 

But they got it all to fit! And without bending any blisters!

 

What uncanny mind looked at that box, looked at the pile of things I ordered, and figured out the volume equation? I ask you. Is it the sort of person who never fails to guess how many beans are in the jar for a prize?

 

I always wondered what happened to Tetris world champions when they retire. Now I know. They work at Reaper under assumed names, quietly filling boxes with their unique, peerless talents.

 

This is the best magic trick I've ever seen.

I've received more than one package in the past that made me suspect that items were accidentally left out. They weren't.

The boxes are made of Anti-tardis? It's bigger till you take everything out?

Boxes of Holding with only 1 charge. *Must* be it.

Hehehe... I've worked in packing and shipping for years, as well as putting in a fair amount of time with a community college theatre guild. You'd be amazed at how far the laws of physics are willing to bend if you know the right way to ask them... ::D:

(Physical objects are mostly composed of empty space anyway... wink, wink)

There are reasons I pack the car when we go on holidays.

 

Apparently doing packing and distribution work builds an unusual relationship with physics... Texas is hot year round isn't it? Maybe we could move there and I could use my specialist packer skills to get a job at Reaper..

Growing up in a really small house (when my mom gutted the house in my 20's and put on an addition, the entire old house became a coat closet, a living room and a dining room) and sharing a bedroom with my brother has made me a master of the use of negative space.

 

Friends usually hate helping me move because what looks like a small, neatly organized room is really a partial pocket dimension of organized hording.

Nope. It can get pretty darn cold up in the north around Dallas/Ft.Worth/Denton in the winter. Heck it even snowed in Corpus Christi in Dec '04. Of course this is from a Florida dwarf's perspective.

Dwarvenranger,

 

Yeah I would say it that is a relative perspective. As my wife and step-son hail from the Dallas/Ft Worth Area, and are now living in NE PA they are constantly reminding me how cold it is, when the temperatures are in the low 60's, and how it's freezing once the temperature dips below 50.

 

At which point I remind them that FREEZING doesn't occur until 32 and lower and that to me cold starts at 20, and really cold is defined as when you breathe in your runny noses freeze and then thaw when you exhale

. ::D:

Yeah, see I define cold at 40 degrees. Of course everyone around me thinks that 60 is cold around here. But I like the cold, of course that could be because I'm hairy and slightly overweight :;):

I used to be that way, but I've been in San Diego long enough that 40 is cold now and 60 is chilly.

In that silly scale you use 70 is cold. In fact 75 is chilly but nice. It's not warm until it reaches 80!

40 f is shorts wearing weather around here. Even as low as 14 f I wear shortsleeves under my winter coat or I'll sweat to death. At 80 f I'm practically sweated down to base minerals and ready to pass out. 64 f with a nice breeze is just about perfect.
