The 39 Cents Mail Experiment

As part of an unique experiment, Ilya Shnaydman, a super-geeky resident of Philadelphia, mailed a letter to his girlfriend in NY. Instead of putting a stamp on the envelope, Ilya taped 39 cents in loose change (plus 5 cents as a tip to postal worker) in its place.

39 Cents Mail Experiment  You will have to visit his blog to know whether the letter reached his girlfriend or was returned back to him.

I really wouldn’t recommend trying this, as the Postal Service is quite overwhelmed already.
