July 27th, 2009: In writing this comic I came across http://www.longbets.org/, which is all about making these public long bets, with the stakes going to charity. It's kinda cool but the bets are all - pretty boring? There's an extremely disappointing lack of "Dude I bet you can't drink this entire bottle of olive oil" and/or "I bet Kelly Jameson will date Frank by the end of the month, holy cow you guys". And upon further research it's because the site charges you $50 to place a bet. In conclusion: weaaaaak – Ryan
December 1st-4th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe. December 5th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January. December 10th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL. December 14th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option. For FEDEX HOME/GROUND shipping it depends on where you are: refer to this map!
