    I once saw a delivery from CPC which came in a large box (approx 2'x1.5'x1') full of plastic air-cushions, all to protect a ........ car sponge. Genius.

    Yep i hate all this "recycle, green, recycle, save the earth, we're taxing you for the sake of the planet" bollox. If people were serious about recycling and saving the planet they would put a stop to manufacturers and companies using un-nessessery packaging, not pick on teh small man who has no say on how much extra packaging comes with his Walkers crisps bag. Can you imagine have many trees are used for no reason and how much space is wasted on every lorry, train, plane, ship etc and how much that adds up to.

    If things didnt come in boxes 20x bigger than needed there probably wouldnt even be a need to recycle at all.

    3com are the best for this. They use massive boxes. I think they must just have one size of box which is for the biggest switch they make. They ship fibre modules in these...

    Not the three spindles we ordered but 3 individual cd-r's.
    Nearly four years after it was posted, this comment made me giggle like a schoolgirl.

    is it a ps2 rat shaped mouse?
