    Are they in any special order? Seems like there would be more than 99,999 post offices in the US. Will, or have we run out?

    There are nine digit zip codes you know

    They assign them by crosslinking the main and auxillary power of the moon machine and jumping it diretly into a random number generator that can be found in any common toaster. This is also why toasting times are variable.
