    Naaaaah. If he were an attorney, he would be able to do no math whatsoever.

    Here is an actual picture of Dread at his job:

    Assos is outfitting the new Evil Knievel! Do you think he can jump the Grand Canyon on his souped up eBike?

    40% off $200 is a savings of $80, while 40% off $250 is a savings of $100. The more expensive item is therefore a better deal in On Sale logic even though it costs more.

    Only an idiot would think like this. Smart people know that it's free shipping that makes a deal worthwhile.

    My daughter saves us hundreds of dollars every time she goes shopping. Pretty soon we'll be millionaires!

    Default anyone up for coffee?

    Just wondering if anyone is planning to do Coffee Club over these next few days....

    Best Buns is open tomorrow (Wedn) for the HDCC.
    Java Shack is open both Thursday and Friday.

    Not to suggest that anyone might wish a little two-wheeled escape from the joys of family togetherness.
