The latter days are here

So yesterday, see, I come home to find an utterly unexpected package from kinokuniya in my front door, as described here. And I open it all happily and blah blah. Seems I could have lost a hand or something so what a good thing I didn't read The Star before opening my kinokuniya package.

Equally, amazon.jp books arrive today. $16 of GST on five volumes whose combined price is about $30. GST is 6%. How did they arrive at this figure? I shall squint at the numbers but I bet it was by adding in amazon's shipping costs. OTOH Fedex only charged me $7 handling. OTOOH this is still being screwed right, left and centre and I say the hell with it.
