    Do you hate junk mail?

    You know those obnoxious "refinance your home" or credit card scams offers that you get in the mail? This is called direct marketing, where marketers use a reduced bulk postal rate to send entire forests of paper mail to you.

    That's too funny. I know someone else that already sends all of those envelopes back to them, stuffed with all the junk mail they mailed them minus the one with their name on it.

    Never thought about sending larger stuff. LOL

    I suppose you could add other junk mail to the box with the brick too. Couldn't hurt right?
