hey gord, that's actually wrong.  if a package is more than 100g,
it jumps from $0.88 to $1.44.  if you want to properly protect
a single, or put stuff in it, or whatever, you often cross that
100g limit.  this is something we at Zedd are trying to make up
our minds about (how much padding?).  if anyone has suggestions
we'd love to hear them.

i find it weird that they're not more expensive.
