That makes sense. We’re Prime Members, and I couldn’t imagine pressing a button and having Amazon send whatever brand they chose to send me. I like to comparison shop to spend less money, and it’s not that hard to go to a computer that is already on for most of my waking hours anyway. The old people angle does make sense though. I know my mom (who I wouldn’t really consider to be elderly) doesn’t keep the computer on all of the time, and it would be much easier. Although she would just go to the grocery store to get it. My grandmother, before she died, would have found this very convenient, since she didn’t drive for the last part of her life.
I'm pretty sure you decide what brand gets sent not Amazon. But it would be a nice feature if they had an option to always send you the same brand or to select the least expensive of 3 brands that you decide and then send it to you.

I’m not a Muslim, but I would still be upset if this happened to my family. I know that my grandparents and cousin are not actually there, but I wouldn’t like it if my family’s graves were all messed up like that.

It was outdated when it came out. They replaced “height-weight” charts with this, which is basically a mathematical version of a height weight chart. Neither ever took muscle levels into account.

My kids (ages 12 1/2 and 8) would love it if I left them in the car instead of making them go into the grocery store. They like the library though.
These kids seem quite spoiled.

1. Some friends of a different race
2. Some friends of a different race
3. Many other-raced friends
4. Some people of a different race
5. Work/church/home (my kids and husband are of a different race, duh!)
6. ~10% of my Facebook friends (I didn’t count them up to do the math though)
7. 365 times (I live with my husband and kids)
8. 365 times (my husband and kids live at my house)
9. 0 managers of different races (I’m self-employed)
10. As many times that I’ve eaten with my husband and/or kids in the last year.
Q1 – my ideas on race haven’t evolved from that of my parents. I’m a racist bastard, that’s why.
Q2 – Yes. I’ve lost touch with a lot of people from my childhood. I must have lost touch with the people that weren’t of my race because I’m a racist bastard.
Q3 – The president

He divorced a long time ago. As far as I know, he and Tanya are happy.

I don’t know where this story occurred, but in some states, gyms and other public facilities HAVE TO allow people to use the restroom of their choice. By law.
That doesn’t excuse them from the way that they treated that lady. If they are in a state that requires transgender individuals (or even creeps with beards that claim that they feel like ladies on any given day), then they could have apologized to her and said “Sorry, but state law requires us to let him in there.”
It also doesn’t excuse them selling unhealthy food in the gym. That’s harder to believe than what they did to that poor girl. I was a member of 24 Hour Fitness for a couple of years, and they didn’t even sell sodas at the gym. I would get a great workout going there.

If I lived in the area, I would make a point to never shop there.
If I was that lady… I am very stubborn. Someone starts calling me and harassing me it would not make me go away. It would piss me off and make me even more resolved to take care of the problem.

Other than the fact that they look about as white as I do… my ancestry is 100% northern European/British/French/Viking…

Their parents probably don’t have anything to take.

Eeew, dogs. Good think that this guy likes them, because it did a good job. I’ll have to make sure that if I’m ever friends with Justin Ireland, that I never go into his gas station though. His dog might try to lick me.
Disgusting dog licks aside, Thor did a good thing. I don’t have to like them to understand that.

While I agree with you on most of what you wrote here… what’s with the hostility towards fanfiction? Some fanfiction is actually good. I wrote some myself for NaNoWriMo last year.
Or is it because it’s based on Twilight? Perhaps you’re on to something there.
I suppose that even Twilight fanfiction might be worth a read, if the author took a mediocre book and actually made a decent book out of it. I have read neither Twilight nor 50 Shades, but from the sounds of it, it doesn’t seem like the author did take a mediocre book and make it great. It looks like the opposite happened.
Still not a reason to bash fanfiction in general. I’m not saying that mine is the best (it’s still in the draft stages anyway) but there are some really good fanfic authors out there :-).
There's money to be made. Ones man's junk is another mans treasure.

I don’t buy the pink stuff because I don’t want my dollars going to Planned Parenthood… the money goes to Komen, which sends some of their money to PP for “mammograms” even though PP doesn’t even do them.

It all depends on what you watch on TV too… my kids like to watch Minecraft videos most of the time… if the person making the videos uses curse words, my kids are not allowed to watch it. The Blaze is pretty safe to watch too.

I agree. I’d probably read more Blaze articles if I knew what they were going to be about.
I’m not really interested in reading stories about kittens or some guy who ate a mountain of hamburgers… if I read a headline reading “you wouldn’t believe what” or “you’ll never guess what happens” then I figure that it’s probably something I’m not interested. I wouldn’t believe what? It’s probably not important to my life, so NEXT… I wouldn’t guess what? Not even going to try guessing… probably not important, so not going to read it.
On the other hand, maybe it is a story that I’d be interested in. You never know unless you tell me what I could read about in the headline.

The pop unders don’t bother me the most. They take two seconds to get rid of… they’re normally gone from my computer before they even load.
What REALLY bothers me are the videos that auto-play. I keep about 20 tabs open on my browser at a time (that way I don’t have to reload when I’m going to sites I’m at often… I use several tabs for my business. If I’m listening to The Blaze radio via iHeart, and all of a sudden I start hearing some random noise playing, it’s very annoying. I generally turn all sound off in Firefox until I finally find the offending tab.
It’s just as bad when I’m off doing something else (my computer is on from the time I get up until the time I go to bed), and I hear random noise.

My kids are biracial… they are being taught not to behave the way you are describing.
