Ebay is cool. I ordered something with this much K in it and I got something with that much K in it!

My favorite version of the Rudolph song is sung by my 3-year-old niece. Instead of saying Cupid, she says Q*Bert!

    She has. She says that Coily the snake is adorable and she drew a pic of him with her purple crayon.

    It will probably be packed solid in the theatre. I'd arrive early unless you want to get whiplash looking up at the screen from the front row.

    While I'm tempted to go see it, I'm not fond of how loud it is at the theaters. I haven't been in years, but the last movie I saw was so loud my Father and I almost left before the movie was over. When we did leave, our ears were ringing and my Father said he'd never go to the theater again.

    Why don't you just wait? I don't get the whole "Must have/Must do/Must see on the first day!" thing.

hearing commercials now where people are mispronouncing 'voila'! They say "wall-ah"… have heard it on more than two ads lately. The 2010's… yet another decade to forget as we get dumber and dumber.

    27yo niece pronounced meme as "memie" the other day. Corrected her of course. Didn't want her to sound like a total flunky when out in public. She was shocked the word was pronounced "meem" as she's heard her peers mispronounce it as well.. sigh

    Meh, I'm sure most of the people in Pennsylvania would mispronounce Refugio, and I always hear people in New York saying Houston incorrectly ;)

Has anyone else noticed that sellers on ebay are more zombie-brained than ever - I received someone else's auction twice now and it pisses me off.

    You mean people are getting orders mixed up? Pretty easy mistake to make when you're not paying attention or not as organized as even a child should be. lol Goes with what I always observe and say... not enough people giving a shit today. Wonder when apathy is going to be recognized as the social disease or mental condition that it is.

    It's happened to me. I lost out on a minty set of 2600 joysticks because the fool sent them to someone else. I ended up getting a bunch of Polly Pocket dolls.

Think it might be time to block ebay. They are one of the worst SPAMMERS ever. Are you still looking at that thing you were looking at? Buy it. C'mon you know you want to.

    This reminds me of when I'd get randomly redirected from Ebay to some malicious web page telling me to "Update Firefox" along with Firefox attempting to download said "update" on my computer, even though its icon clearly showed that it was a JScript. I never fell for it and it ended up being an annoyance more than anything.

    I've been getting around 10 emails a day from eBay this month. Not one of them has been anything important, just the random spam you mention. I just delete them and move on.

    I'm going to guess there's an unsubscribe somewhere? I mean I'm on ebay a lot sometimes and I never get emails from them...Just a couple messages a week in my ebay inbox but that's it...

Counted about 4 SNES Mini's at Walmart today and wasn't even tempted to pick one up. $40 maybe, but $79... no thanks.

    Video games are the cause of all hatred and violence in the world, so I try to avoid them. All I need is a stick. Throw stick, run to stick, pick up stick, throw stick, run to stick . . .

    I once paid for an all-time membership at a non-binaries site. It didn't take long before the site was shut down. Not that I paid any significant amount of money, but it was annoying anyhow. The increasing amount of spam and trolls at the same time web forums were growing quickly made me quit looking for other Usenet providers.

So apparently Disney, which already owns Lucasfilm, the Muppets, Pixar, ESPN, ABC television, half of A&E, 30% of Hulu, and who knows what else, is now acquiring 21st Century Fox. I guess it really is "a small world after all."
