Neopian Stamps - Are They Good For Anything?
NEOPIAN POST OFFICE KIOSK - As you all probably know, a relatively new feature
has come about the world of Neopia--stamps. Now I don't know about you, but
they seem like a waste of time and neopoints to me. I mean why would you waste
thousands and thousands of neopoints to buy stamps that don't even do anything?
They just sit there for display, and what do you have? A bunch of useless stamps
that do nothing. I mean the only thing that they are good for, is that if you
are fast enough to get them from the post
office kiosk, you can sell them to someone who thinks that they must
have every single stamp in Neopia.
But then I was thinking, what about the Petpets? Not too long ago, they were
useless, just for display, something that all the rich Neopians had. But then
lo and behold, then came the Turmaculus,
a gigantic Petpet that gives out rewards to a lucky Neopet's Petpet who could
wake him up. As you can see something that seemed to be useless and a waste
of neopoints suddenly became the greatest thing to have! Unless, of course the
Turmaculus ate your poor, defenseless little Petpet (how dare he!) which you
had no control over. Even so, whenever I go to the Turmaculus, I never do anything
that could offend him the slightest bit. I don't want my magtile to be eaten.
And no, I didn't buy him, I found it or something, actually I forgot how I got
him. But never mind how I got my magtile.
As I was saying, Petpets, which were once useless and a waste, are now essentials
in a normal Neopets life. Then I got to thinking for such a long time, Petpets
were not needed then on that day the Tumaculus came out, and suddenly everyone
needed one. You see if you wanted one, then you could have bought one beforehand,
but the neopians who didn't have one, and wanted to try out the Turmaculus,
Now back to the stamps, after I had gotten that whole thing out of my system,
(ranting and raving about how useless stamps were) I began to once again think
about why there would be stamps. So then I thought don't you need stamps to
mail letters? So then I though maybe the whole stamp thing isn't wasted if you
have them. Maybe later on, you'll need them to send greeting or neomails, or
who knows what else. Maybe there'll be some kind of mutant stamp that comes
alive and tries to destroy Neopia! Maybe, after the Tyrannian land war, there'll
be a mutant stamp army trying to get us all! Or maybe after those mutant stamps
come alive they'll make all those other stamps turn against their faithful collectors,
and then we'd all be doomed, I mean there are like a million of them already.
Oh sorry, I didn't mean to get so carried away.
Now, as I just regained my sanity, I will start again. I think that later
on you'll need stamps to do something, so maybe I should start collecting them.
But then again, it does sound a little far-fetched, I mean who ever heard of
mutant stamps coming ali... I mean why would you need something to do something?
Yes, it does sound a little silly now that I think about it, but I have this
tendency to be wrong about everything, or most things that is. Still, I think
I'll start hanging around the post office kiosk. But just in case, be ready
to discard your stamps when those mutant stamps come and attack us all!
