I took it upon myself to design a stamp for the Mexican postal service, one of the most useless entities on the planet. I am convinced that somewhere near their sorting office, after sorting out the packages they want to steal, they dump the rest in a big hole in the ground. Obviously, there are bigger problems in Mexico, but the postal service is one of the things I hate the most. And even in this digital age, not having a reliable postal service does make me feel a little detached from the rest of the world; friends in Europe for example.
