The mask is slightly radioactive it is picking up 25 counts per minute to my normal 14.

The headphones are kinda hot 40 counts per minute.

I can only pick up Gamma and Beta but my gieger counter is not alarming that happens about 800 counts per minute.

It's actually a model H-63/U headset used by the US Army Signal Corps, and the batch it came from was manufactured in the 1940s (according to the seller). No guarantee as to its functionality at that age; I just try to include at least one or two old school mil gifts in my annual GiP gift exchange.

Glad you dig it.

@Geizkragen: Package still shows as not having been posted by inbound customs, sorry for the delay, German logistics under Corona seem extraordinarily hosed according to a bunch of googling around and looking at support requests/comments on the DHL page.
On Thursday, it'll have been in transit for 30 days, so I'll be able to file an investigation request pro forma, but going by what I'm reading, I'm guessing it's not actually lost, just delayed as hell due to the holiday package load in addition to the previous Corona load.

The crabby shirt will fit right in here in Maryland.

The candies are like weaponized licorice with a spicy powder middle. Like you think you know licorice and these things come and kick your face in then sprinkle a pleasant spicy sweet salty powder to say goodbye.

I have no clue what the DVD is but it has Lip, Cock, and Sodom in the title so giggles abound.

Glad you like them! The movies is trying to be a sort of serious sci-fi but the you can see that the name was chosen by people who either didn't know English very well or weren't paid enough to care. It received an award of some sort for either costumes or scenery, but I figured the title would fit right into this subforum.

Update:
Unless your tracking shows something else than I am seeing, the package is still in transit and hasn't entered inbound customs. Looks like due to Corona, I won't be able to file an inquiry until the package has been in transit for 42, not 30 days.



I'm starting to get worried that my package going to the airmail-dispocenter instead of Hamburg to go via ship may have been unintentional, and that Frankfurt was all "lol this wasn't supposed to go by plane, let's just have it sit here until it's routed to Hamburg for shipping".
Sorry about this lovely Corona shipping experience.

There was supposed to be a note but I managed to leave it on the printer for several days after shipping. The seeds are, allegedly, for Trinidad Chocolate 7 Pot Douglah peppers. I don't know poo poo about peppers but you've already planted the hot ones I'd heard of. A couple of the reviews suggested the quality control might not be the best at making sure the right type seeds are in the right packet, so good luck.

Duzzy Funlop posted:

Partly double-planted 8 seeds today in my peat pods, I'd be surprised if I bring fewer than 4 of them to full growth.



Sad-update: Despite optimal conditions, none of the 8 seeds ended up showing life. I've been monitoring them and the conditions in my growhouse carefully after not even a single one was showing any initiative 9 days in (which is generally the time by which I expect the first planted seeds to sprout).
I'm gonna give the remaining seeds from the baggie a try in coconut-fiber pods (which usually aren't my pod of choice for chinensis-strains) and hope for the best. I've never had a spawning rate lower than 60% of planted seeds, so this would be a bit of a bummer.

But a partner-in-crime of mine at work with whom I talk chili pretty frequently raised an issue that may be the cause of the problem: Most (all?) of US domestic mail is irradiated post-9/11, right?
Because my buddy floated the idea that even if the package had an international destination, domestic SOP would still have applied, so the seeds could have gotten a healthy-dose of the death-rays.
