While looking through some auctions on Ebay I found this.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=26253&item=3819042253

$135.95 to ship paper, I guess we shouldn't get upset when people want $5.00 to ship a single figure.

Yeah that sa little on the high side for a single ream of paper. If it was 5,000 sheets I could see that but 500....$20 tops, and on top of all that he's charging a mandatory $10.00 insurance fee.
