Stupid Shipping Gang Takes Over Newegg, Sends Cables In Huge Boxes

massive_newegg_boxMatthew writes that he ordered one HDMI cable from Newegg, and got a box large enough to fit at least a dozen more. You could throw in a laptop computer without too much trouble, too, even though he only set his 15″ Macbook on top of the box to give us a sense of scale.


If nothing else, the Stupid Shipping Gang provides people who plan to move and who need to mail large objects with a generous supply of free boxes. Also, crumpled-up brown paper.

Please do your part, and don’t let the generosity of the Stupid Shipping Gang go to waste. Re-use the bushels of packing materials that you receive.
