The greatest bit of investigative journalism ever written

Timothy Noah of Slate has written a piece that will go down in history: he’s discovered’s customer service number.

In this season of celebration, I have received many e-mails from readers prostrate with gratitude that, like Stanley tramping through the African jungle in search of Livingstone, I dug this number out from the Web’s darkest recesses and shared it with the world. I offer it here again for those who didn’t think to Google the words “Amazon” and “phone number.”

[Just the US one, unfortunately]
