      the_tortoise @ the_tortoise: if "post" and "mail" were used interchangeably for every thing associated with post/mail it would not be as interesting+1

      the_tortoise @ the_tortoise: it just struck me that in canada people call the post "the mail" and we talk about "mail carriers" but we still call it the "post office" and not the "mail office"
