spores through mail
    #469986 - 11/26/01 02:11 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Are the spores we all like still being sent through the mail with no problems since the events of sept 11? It just seems shady to me to have spores mailed around given the ongoing trials and tribulations in the world. Don't get me wrong here, I favor friendly spores, i just want to know everyones opinions on the safety issue. Or is there any chance that spores could have been irradiated and therefore would be useless?

My friend and growing god blahblahblah said his mother works at the PO. Word is that they are in the proccess of setting up machines that will irradiate all mail that passes through major stations. At this moment they are irradiating mail in some places but not everywhere. They are also selecting some mail that looks suspicious and sending it for specific irradiation. So, if your worried you have two choices; trade/buy like crazy right now or send/have things sent in a lead box. My uncles, cousins, chickens have had spores recently sent to them and they were fine. The evil horde is always fucking with things so you never can tell. Better to have and not need than need and not have.

Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have.

I think things will be ok, as long as spore dealers package their products well. Recently i recieved my order in ziploc bag inside a box, which i am guessing would survive any sort of sterilizing machine. I think what the post office is worried about is envelopes containing powder, which is probably the most common way to spread anthrax. I saw a special on MSNBC about anthrax, and according to them the alternative means of spreading anthrax require millions in technology costs and would not be efficient at all.
Anyway, my point is that if your packaged spores can survive a trip through the washing machine, then they can also survive the post office's machines.
