I am in that microscopic minority of SF members who have actually eaten squirrel. Fried squirrel is pretty good. Tastes like rabbit.
Airline travel vouchers. On the return from a recent pleasure trip inside the US I was scheduled for two short flights to return home on a Thursday. I work for myself so I am flexible. Long story short: I repeatedly volunteered to give up my assigned seat. In compensation I received 4 free nights in a hotel near the airport and arrived home with $2800 in vouchers from a major US carrier and a check for $800. Original ticket cost me a little over $400. The carrier...
I had a series of PM's with an SFer a couple of years ago which went something like this:Prospective buyer: I will give you $90 for those shoes.Me: I just listed those for sale and the price is more than fair. I need the whole $150.Prospective buyer: OK. I'll give you $120.Me: How about $155?Prospective buyer: That's more than your original price.Me: Yes, it is.Prospective buyer: OK. I will buy them for $150.Me: Sold.My behavior in that example may be dickish...
And then look at Brooks Brothers. Most BB suits and sport coats are single vent. And BB probably sells 1000 suits/blazers/sport coats for every 1 sold by Suit Supply. Even restricting the numbers to SF members I am confident that BB sells hundreds of jackets for every one sold by SS.
The pic makes the collar size appear to be too small for you. Can you comfortably button the top button on that shirt? An extra 1/2 inch or inch in neck size will give a better look with the points buttoned down.Unbuttoned points always make we wonder whether the wearer forgot to button the after laundering.
IMO the double vent fans are more vocal about their preference. I suspect that if you polled every SF member you would find that most would fall into the "prefer single vent" or "single or double vent are both equally good" camps. I am in the latter.
One of the ebay reports which I print every year lists the total refunds, so you can use that number instead of trying to total up a long column of numbers.
The execution reminded me of Of Mice and Men.
The padded flat rate envelope will hold considerably more than the paper ones. Give that a try.
I chose the Sony RX 100, which is a great point and shoot but not DSLR, because I wanted a camera which I could also easily carry in a pocket when I travel. The RX 100 is a great camera. My constraint with it is my abilities, not the capabilities of the camera.
