    I've been retired for six years now. During a trip to Pittsburgh I saw a package car with two silver tubes mounted on the roof. They were on the drivers side and about two feet in diameter and maybe two feet tall. I asked what they were at my old center and they had no idea. Can anybody enlighten me?

    We can shoot small packages to door steps now. It's like those t-shirt guns you see at stadiums.

    New rug slots so you can just go head first into a driveway and slam on the breaks to deliver that :censored2:. The ORION team said those no longer count as a real stop.

    I'm pretty sure one of them is a lube dispenser. You know what the other one is... It's used for the days that they decide to really give it to you. Just bend over!
