It's confirmed - there is a conspiracy against us poor Europeans when it comes to the price of postage. Imagine this you want to buy a book for $6.95. Cheap enough you say. Surely it wouldn't cost much in postage. Wrong my friend. Sure slap $35.00 on it for postage coming to a grand total of $41.95. The price is enough to choke on. Sure I'll buy it.
Of course not all people are like this. There are some nice individuals out there who charge next to nothing on postage that even I feel guilty though not to the point of sending them out $30+ for postage.
