Impressive:

The address was deciphered by the postal employees and delivered successfully. Some of the correct characters (red) were written above the wrong ones (black).

Sorry, my mistake - I have edited my original post, first link contains explanation now.

But I am surprised - have you never seen how cyrillic alphabet is displayed when you use incorrect encoding?
I don't get the whole thing. All I see is a package with an address written in an obviously foreign language, then obviously translated character by character into some other foreign language. I don't understand the significance of either language, which one is original, which one is the transcription, nor do I understand what was written by a human versus what was written by a machine, or what emailing has to do with it.


Oh. OK. So:
  1. The original email was written including a snail mail address. The email itself was authored using a Cyrillic character set (the curly ones).
  2. When it arrived in the recipient's Inbox, her mail client output the Cyrillic as Western, which would have it come up in the recipient's email as ǺǑĚ.
  3. The recipient then faithfully copied every incorrect character from her email (having no idea they were now gibberish) onto the package (the bottom set of characters in black on the package).
  4. The red lettering is the back-conversion to the correct character set, done by the posties.
Got it.

Those who want the baby to put the baby back to sleep later on a regular schedule.

This is unfair - AYDS was created before AIDS was discovered.

Considering those words as variables, the system it's not impossible only for no = 1, so study = fail a priori
