Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves. Or, as students of Klingon will bark: bortaS bIr jablu'DI' reH QaQqu' nay – revenge is a dish be served cold. If you're minded to get your own back, literature has lots of advice.

Today, the business of retribution has change. Forever. Today – for just $9.99 – you can cooly send your enemies... glitter in the post.

The dastardly site – ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com – is the brainchild of Mathew Carpenter, an internet marketer from Syndey, Australia.

Carpenter recalls: "Over the years, I've received Christmas and birthday cards from family and friends. They put glitter in the cards. I hated it. I wanted the rest of the world to feel my pain... That's how the website was born."
