      Dave, did your stamp googling for you.

      Lunar New Year: Year of the Snake, issued Jan 8 2013. Quite a long writeup here:

      In fact the timer is really well constructed and safe compared to “the el crappy ones” sold here in “el crappy bastard cheapie analog suicide multimeter” land.

      Nice mailbag. Regards CH!

      Well, I don’t see anyone else talking about it, so I think the fountain is the Jet d’Eau in Geneva.

      —begin quote—
      Five hundred litres (132 gallons) of water per second are jetted to an altitude of 140 metres (459 feet) by two 500 kW pumps, operating at 2,400 V, consuming over one megawatt of electricity. The water leaves the nozzle at a speed of 200 km/h (124 mph). When it is in operation, at any given moment there are about 7,000 litres (1849 gallons) of water in the air.
