All things modern.
A man on the internet became frustrated and fed up with the postal system destroying items he was trying to ship. He was particularly distressed when a valuable pair of Oakley sunglasses were returned to him with the box crushed and the glasses damaged. Now Oakley X-metal glasses are made of titanium and are very strong. The forces to which the package was subjected to were so great that a permanent imprint of the glasses was left in the felt lining the inside of the case containing it.
Here is a picture of the crushed box:
Here is the popped airbag from the inside:
Here you can see the impression of his glasses left on the inside of the soft vault:
These glasses are strong, but not infinitely so. They no longer sit straight either on his face or on the stand:
So when the time came to ship these back for repair, he made some improvements to the box:
It is now wooden held together with hot-glue and 2 inch wood screws. First a layer of bubble wrap is inserted:
Then the glasses:
Followed by another layer of bubble wrap:
The lid is then placed on the top secured by 4 dowels and the panel which opens is clearly marked::
On all sides:
It is then placed in an ordinary looking envelope:
Wrapped, and customer number label placed on ALL 6 SIDES!!!
He thinks that King Kong himself could not get it wrong this time!!!
