It's real and it does exactly what it says it will: send Dumb Cuneiform a tweet or an SMS message and they'll transliterate it into ancient Persian cuneiform, stamp it into a clay tablet and mail it to you. $20. It's Snow-Crash-a-riffic.
ARE YOU FOR REAL?
Oh yes. We've made lots of these, and we'll make more. You'll really get it in the mail.
HOW DO YOU MAKE THEM?
By hand! We take real ceramicist-grade clay and create nice-sized tablets. We carefully translate your message, inscribe the cuneiform characters, and wait for them to dry. Then we fire the tablets to make the clay harden, and last longer.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
About a week or two. It takes a few days to wait for the tablets to dry, and then we have to fire, package, and ship them.
