I once had a dream that I had a little mailslot in the door, and some creepy person was holding it open and staring at me through it. That seems a bit creepy - also wouldn`t it get cold when it snows?

#10 and #24 are the same picture, except #10 is badly photoshopped.

(I`m... actually being serious about photoshopping. What is this world coming to?)

umm, actually, T-R wolf, it`s not just america u no. are u just thinking about the rest of the northern hemisphere? coz there is a bottom half of the world, u no. and most of the mail in the southern hemisphere goes in mailboxes. that`s why they`re called mailBOX and not mailSLOT.

"around the world" seems to mean "around America". Most countries dont have those boxes at the end of their path, it seems a bit odd to have your mail delivered to outside your house. In most countries there is a letter box slot in your front door, and the mail goes in there... and is then in your house. Makes sense, no? Security too!

There are actually only 24. The one with the twisting pole and 506 on it is shown twice. Just saying.

If you come visit Tassie and drive from Devonport to Cradle Mountain, you`ll see about 200 better than this, the entire 60km road had a competition to outwit, outthink, outcrazy each other with mailboxes. There are some real beauties there, such as a bar-fridge one (solar-powered) which has a beer for the Postie in it every day (it`s a hot, thankless job delivering mail... usually), aboriginal art, bending-over-butthole one, etc.

In Apollo Beach, Florida there`s mailboxes shaped like manatees. They have manatees that swim in the canal.

Is it just me, or does anyone else see possible similarities between 10 (the mailbox with the windy twisty thin metal bracket) and 21 (the mailbox with the windy twisty thin metal bracket)?

And what`s with number 3, trying to win the World`s Most Obviously Photoshopped Award? The square of grass and the tuft of grass a foot above another identical twin tuft are sort of giveaways...

Wouldn`t have a mailbox myself. Ugh - going outside to get my mail?

Do most people in the US actually have those kinds of mailboxes (obv. not crazy ones, but like actual boxes at the end of your yard)?
We`ve just got little boxes that are attached to our houses.

Pretty creative, but I wouldn`t actually be interested in having one. They all seemed kind of silly.

I`m not sure the old mailbox being consumed by the tree counts as inspired, but it was still a really cool photo.
