You know how it is when, that calculation for froghoppers/escape velocity calculation just seems to go on and on? Worry no more! The new double-backed envelope is in prototype stage.

Revolutionary, two flap design means two backs, so you have twice as much scribble space, also available in A0 size for those really abstruse calculations concerning quantum gravity, or that 5/1 on Dobbin in the grand national.

Also available in glass-framed format with "Thanks for the figures, I would never have cracked that black hole radiation bit without them! Stevie Hawkings" printed on them, that kind thing..

       [+] I'll take a gross... and do let me know when the restaurant placemats with basic formulas and figures on the face are ready.

       [+], there's always the inside of the envelope too.

       I know, it's so short-sighted of restaurants not to have graph paper napkins..what are they thinking of, eh?   

       //there's always the inside of the envelope too   

       The Klein bottle envelope?

       "The letter with two backs"... probably French...
Ahem, as you were.

       // "The letter with two backs"   

       Actually I've taken to writing my letters of the inside of the paper, it prevents smudging.

       The thought about the envelope having insides is from my paternal grandmother, who used to correspond with friends using the same envelope twelve times, partly eversively. On the whole, the bimetallic strip thermostat was probably the better idea, but then she didn't think of that one.

       Shades of John Peel, he had an eccentric relative who just recycled Xmas cards as they came in, he'd just add " and Mr Smith" (or whatever) after the "best wishes from" bit and then whizz it off in an envelope to people who had no idea who the original signers were.
