The Junkmail Project

The Junkmail Project: Welcome to the AARP!



I’m 6 months away from my 30th birthday. Standards keep getting lower every day, don’t they?

As of the end of the first week of April, I have now received over 10 kilograms of mail. Just over 6 kilograms of that has been junkmail. Thanks to a strong showing by magazine subscriptions (particularly by this month’s WIRED) the spam ratio has slipped to just a hair under 60% of the total mail. Magazines now make up just over 25% of the stack. I’m sure once the next issue of JPG shows up, it’ll cause it to slip a little further.

(Don’t forget, you can still vote for my latest photograph submitted to JPG until April 11. GO HERE TO VOTE. Your support is greatly appreciated!)

Anyway, back to the mail …

In this graph you can see how the roughly 23 pounds of mail stacks up:

And in this graph you can see that PacMan should probably still consider visiting a doctor:
