    Why, when we've had hour final on Monday, does this class still meet two more times?

    Also, pB, your GF likes poon? Maybe you'd want to bone more if you got to see her fisting other chicks. Just sayin, test drive that, see how it works out. And I think the women from Lesbos like you for your hair.

    I don't understand the point of mail in rebates. Was in the Verizon store today and this older guy with a handlebar mustache was up in arms and pissed off because he couldn't even begin to comprehend the mail in rebate scenario. He was under the impression that a phone was $99 (because it says on the goddamn sign that it's $99) and he was wondering why he has to pay $149 for it. This went on for a good 15 minutes with the guy getting more and more mad. Back to the rebates though, like why not just give the discount up front? Why have rebates somehow stuck around in this modern day?

    I could be wrong, but the plan is that you buy the item full price with the intent of mailing in the rebate, the distributor fully aware that fifty percent or so of people actually do so, thus profit and increased sales.

    The worst is rebates for giftcards. They know many people won't send in the rebate, then even more people will never use the gift card.

    Also they take so damn long to process the rebate (six to eight weeks is bullshit) that I'm sure a lot of people totally forget about it.

    I thought rebates happen when there is a country-wide manufacturer/distributor/main-brand-however-you-call-it sale.
    Retailer selling their shit aint gonna go out of their way to change their prices on their system and do stuff for them as it's not their sale and they're keeping their margin.

    The heels concentrate the force into a much smaller point in women's shoes than in men's. And in order for those things to avoid breaking, they have to be made out of a pretty hard material.

    Because its not the retailer, but the manufacturer offering the rebate.


    Also, do NOT shave with a straight edge after pulling an all nighter writing a paper.

    This one is not ketchup.

    I have a pair of Herring Chukkas and a pair of Bartalesi (Aus/Ita) wholecuts that make a crazy amount of noise and they have 1/4 rubber heels!

    There's even a phrase for that shtick: Manic Pixie Dream Girl.
