Sears last year. 

Sears now:



Someone please explain to Eddie Lampert, a.k.a. Bonehead Dumbfuck,  the concept of bulk purchasing power. You can't get out of this cycle by closing unprofitable stores. All you are doing is raising the costs for all your other stores.

"It is not clear how available the nine files are: the possibility that a cybernaut with a BitTorrent protocol will be able to find a file in the dark or remote recesses of the Internet does not make the posting to Defense Distributed’s site harmless,"

I think I'll go to YouTube and check out some music. It's a good way to check to see if you've gotten old already.

Prickly Heat Powder in Taiwan


Since it appears that now every summer in Taiwan is going to be hotter and more brutal than the previous one, you should note that you can buy Prickly Heat Powder (the good original stuff, imported from Thailand) is sold at Poya (寶雅) stores. They have three flavors: original, lavender, and a third one that I don't remember.
