you crazy bro, it's the ultimate ridiculously cheap one stop shopping. when i moved into my new place i got household items, some clothes, and groceries all at the same place at just ridiculously awesome prices. that little rollback guy is my hero.


I'd rather pay more money than support predatory pricers. :^ B-)

You're really showing them. I don't care what the hell a company does -- I go wherever the best value is. However, I tend to avoid Wal Mart because these people shop there. :^ :^ I raise your snobbishness by 1, sir. :-b

Also a good reason. :-b

My wife had to go in one when she was on her way to a friend's house and in an unfamiliar area. She couldn't find what she was looking for so they sent for the manager of the department who of course didn't speak English. That was pretty awesome too. :-{

I hear ya, Art. When I die they can burn up my carcass and throw away the ashes. I don't need this thing anymore. If they want to put up a stone that says "Here lies knapplc, beloved husband, father and friend" that's fine, but a casket? Nah. It's such a huge waste.

I haven't stepped inside a Wal-Mart for years, until I had gone into a Wal-Mart Supercenter a month or so ago, just to say I've been to one.

Personally, I'd rather support local establishments as best as I can, especially when it comes to groceries (I'd much rather go to the local Farmers Market) just because I'm so bloody picky about food and drink. I'd probably go to Wal-Mart/Target/K-Mart just to get things around the house, but that's really it.

If it were legal, I'd just have my carcass tossed into the woods as carrion for the coyotes and whatnot. Either that or have it donated to some organization of cannibals or necrophiliacs (if such things exist). As it is, though, I'll have to settle for cremation.

You could maybe pull that off on religious grounds, but you'd have to convince the authorities that you're following the exposure rituals of Native Americans.

I'd donate my body to science. I'm an organ donor, of course. Whatever is most convenient, and helps those who mourn my passing best, and isn't wasteful of money or resources, I'm all for.

I want to be stuffed and mounted on the wall. Or perhaps wear a suit of armor and be stationed as a guard in my descendants' houses for years to come.

This reminded me of a documentary I just saw: "Monty Python: Almost the Truth (the lawyer's cut)". Totally awesome show, going to burn it on dvd so I can watch it over and over. Anyways, they had footage of Graham Chapman's funeral and the Cleese and Palin eulogies were hilarious. People were going back and forth between sobbing and laughing. Cleese did the dead parrot sketch with Chapman, priceless.

I miss Python.
