  • The black mailbox just stood there and did nothing. Wouldn't answer any of our questions. Just acted as if it was a mailbox. Which, of course, we all know is nonsense.

  • The only place i know where you can send a letter to an alien. No mail pick up times posted, but you could always just wait around and see if you have a close encounter.
