Speaking of tBin, that PR congresswoman you posted about is a lifelong Republican, not Democrat. You posted fake news.

Same thing happened in Flint. AirTran had lower fares. Southwest bought them out. Now Southwest and Delta collude on prices. It used to be cheaper to fly into Flint as opposed to Detroit. Not any more.

Your argument against dwags is to tell people to drive? What a solid strong argument you aren’t deflecting at all!

You’re right - in this case I should take off an entire week to drive to Chicago for the northwestern game. Who are you going to leech off for social security if I do that ?

Denver to Chicago is 1,000 miles. That's a 3 day RT. 1 Day for the game. So you plan ahead and take Friday & Monday off for driving.

OR you pay the cheapest airfare with restrictions and fly there. IF you don't want the restrictions then buy another fare without them or look into NetJets.

The reason airlines get away with that shit is that people let them. They click on the cheapest fare regardless of their babble about service. There's a reason why Walmart is the biggest retailer in the US and Nordstrom isn't.

Mrs. GreenWay wants something high end this time. She's always driving all over the state, and I can understand why she'd want something comfy.

No, I was saying any further discussion should move to the Bin.
And you should also correct the fake news you posted over there, or at least acknowledge your error. I know that's what you want for others and for news organizations. Be a leader, Goose. Stand up and say, "Hell yes, I was wrong."

The people who bought those are probably the spawn of folks who bought pet rocks or extended leashes with the imaginary dog.
Oh, and instead of calling it Mac candle N° 2, it should've been named Mac candle 2.0. How did someone not think of that? It's effing obvious.

That was just last week....I often have that show on in the background.

The real heartbreaker was yesterday. A guy misses a showcase by $461 - over $35K. He's celebrating like he won, bad karma. Nice looking blonde chick who was there with a Captain Kirk lookalike.....misses her showcase by $448 so beats him by $13.

Fear not. You have expressed much better experiences and willingness to learn than OTPT. That dumb fuck wants all experience erased so he can think he's in charge.

Seem like a genuinely good kid. Stick with us ole fuckers and grow wise beyond your years.
