Oh yea! I watched that with Pam last night. What a great front for a drug business...that is until you get sloppy and let a 2 year old find the stash.

It talked about how the lady in charge talked to her man a bunch before she got arrested then deleted thousands of texts and he's on the run.

Dear Excel, today my professional life is a NOIN but my personal life is a two.

How about instead of a 1 to 10 scale, just have a binary ranking:
Did I get some last night?
Yes = 1 (I'm in a good mood),
No = 0 (leave me the fuck alone).

Costco was founded in 1983 in Seattle and now sells one-ounce gold bars. (Amazon also sells gold, but only in weights of one gram and 2.5 grams.) Shares of Costco closed today at 563.53, a gain of 10.57 (1.91%).

That makes no farkin sense. If you're stupid enough to buy a gold bar, you can order it from the OAN network or a million other places. Why are people getting it from Costco?

Usually to buy in bulk. But in this case limited to 2 per customer kind of defeats the purpose. You would have expected a slat of 5000 gold bars at Costco.

It looks like they are selling the gold at cost, so they are not making any profit on it.
I can no longer read the article, but I recall they listed the price as about $50 over market price, which probably covers certain costs. I think they said market price was $1,899, and they were selling for $1,949. But that's just what I think I saw.

That is the best! Support animals are a fucking joke and I love when people try to take advantage of how ridiculous it has become.

This was my previous favorite example, now the alligator has taken the crown.

True support animals are very useful. The problem is that too many people just buy a vest and throw it on their pet or turn their pet bird or crocodile into a support animal. This diminishes the role of the support animal and also encourages people who see people petting the fake support animals to try the same with the real ones which causes issues with those animals.

Athena is an emotional support cat and it's a total joke. The policy is that we can only have emotional support pets if we live at a property. Both my boss and his boss know it's a joke and I just bought a certificate online for $50 signed by some quack doctor. But the company requires it to be scanned into my rental agreement.
