About 10 years ago my uncle went to order a new car and insisted he was only going to pay for an AM radio because that’s all he was going to use anyway. After a while the dealer finally said they could do it, but it would have to be a custom dealer install of an old radio because they don’t make them anymore. Needless Read more

I work for a large utility with an on-site clinic, and every year during flu season we can go get a free flu shot.

Tim’s is very generic now. It’s fine if you’re on the road and need to grab something, because they’re quick and you know what you’re getting. The downside is you know what you’re getting because everything is frozen mediocrity. You can tell when you walk in: it doesn’t actually smell like donuts anymore. I know Read more

The headlights don’t help, but the grille is the first thing you see. It’s like looking at Spock: his eyebrows hit you first, and by the time you start to accept them you realize his ears are pretty pointy, too. Read more
