A Look at the World's Only Underwater Post Office

  A Look at the World's Only Underwater Post Office It only accepts waterproof postcards.As Lonely Planet notes, island postal officials debuted a deep-sea post office adjunct in 2003. Tourists to the collection of more than 80 islands can dive roughly 10 feet (about 3 meters) down near Hideaway Island to discover a staffed aquatic postal station. Waterproof postcards and stamps purchased on dry land can be mailed via the sea, with visitors alerted to the window being occupied by a flagged bob in the water. (If not, they can drop mail off in a separate slot.) Vanuatu clerks can even postmark the correspondence, substituting ink for an embossing device that proves it's in transit.

'Game of Thrones' Star Rory McCann Hasn't Watched the Entire Show: 'I'm Way Lost'

  'Game of Thrones' Star Rory McCann Hasn't Watched the Entire Show: 'I'm Way Lost' It turns out it is possible to watch only part of "Game of Thrones" without getting hooked -- and one of the show's stars, of all people, is proof. Rory McCann has starred in the acclaimed HBO series as Sandor Clegane (aka the Hound) since Season 1, with the exception of Season 5, but he still hasn't felt compelled to watch the show all the way through yet. He recently revealed to SFX magazine (via its sister publication GamesRadar+) that he's "way lost" -- to the point that he has met fellow "Game of Thrones" stars without realizing they appeared in the same show.
