    Strange package

    I got a package n the mail today. It is adressed to me, but it's from Pakistan. I don't remember ordering anything from Pakistan. Ever. Kinda leery about opening it.

    Call the police and the post office. They will inspect it for you.

    Pakistan would be an odd country. Third party sellers routinely ship from China.

    Well, current exchange rates have 105 Pakistani Rupees (PKR) to the USD, so 10M PKR would only be ~$95K USD.
    But certainly enough to buy back the family farm in Pashtun.

    Your ship just came in - and it's setting sail for Karachi.

    The Nigerian Prince is sending you the inheritance he promised, but shipping rates were better from Pakistan.

    When my wife came home I asked her if she ordered anything from Pakistan. She said no, but turned the box upside down an opened it. It was needles she had ordered online for her insulin pens. The box has multilingual instructions now....

    Lordy, if those needles are half as dull as those Pakistani knives they used to try and pawn of on us, it will take a hammer to drive them in. lol

    after being liberated, a GI saw a Muslim woman walking 20 paces behind her husband. He said she's free now and asked her why she was still doing that and she said --Landmines

    Many a husband dreads the possibility that she might.

    The needles are plenty sharp. It's the no hole in them that's the problem.
