Hungarian Postal Service Issues Steve Jobs Commemorations

The Hungarian postal service, Magyar Posta, is issuing a commemorative sheet bearing Steve Jobs image. The sheet, which includes a perforated stamp-sized image of Steve Jobs, will sell for 1,000 forints (about $4.40).


From the Associated Press:
The sheet includes a perforated portrait of Jobs, while an accompanying card shows silhouettes of some of the inventor’s characteristic poses and a quote about Jobs by Erno Rubik, the Hungarian architect who created Rubik’s Cube and other mechanical puzzles.
The sheet is strictly for commemoration however, and cannot be used as postage. 5,000 sheets will be sold starting in December from Magyar Posta's online store (Hungarian only).

That's the cost to send a letter in countries over the world.

That's why I have a nice little chuckle when people here in the US complain about the price of stamps going up 1 or 2 cents. They have no idea...

A friend of mine studying at the University of Philadelphia was once asked where she's from due to her accent. She answered 'I'm from Poland'. The American gave her another question 'What state is that in?'

Makes me laugh every time.

I was in Paris about 10 years ago. Talking to a guy at a local market.
"Where are you from?" He asks me
"Sydney, Australia" l reply
"Oh, l'm driving there next week"

Someone (an American) asked my French ex-girlfriend if they had a moon in France. Bye the way, that person didn't know where France is.

Is it me, or does that look a lot like Ghandi?


I was thinking Mother Theresa.

It's interesting that there must be some process to select a picture to immortalize a person—I wonder how they decide on what age to use. It seems particularly relevant because Jobs' appearance changed so much over a recent period of time, and his appearance toward the end of his life is now being made as iconic as the earlier images of him in suspenders holding an apple, with that gorgeous, shiny hair. Not saying good or bad, just something I think about. I think a stamp of the young Jobs holding an apple could be nice, too.

Like most Apple products, no instructions are required. Sad Apple devotees who will buy this already know to lick the backside.


How do you come up with these witty and insightful jokes? It must take hours! :rolleyes:

I don't know but about French, but in German, the word for travel is the same as the word for drive, so I could easily imagine someone who is a non-native English speaker confusing the two. I would not have assumed that it was a lack of geographical knowledge, but rather a translation error.

Afaik, Hungary has made many beautiful stamps about happenings around the world. So for me it's not random. No, I'm not Hungarian.
