Rat Farts!

Ordered "Star Trek:The Original Series" Season 1 on Blu-ray (it was shipped this morning from Amazon.com) for what I thought was the cheapest I'd ever see it... $64.99, since list price is $129.99. On my lunch break at work today, I was browsing the new Blu-ray release section, and there it was, staring me in the face, for $61.74!!! And if you factor in my 10% employee discount, which would take around another $6 off that price... it would be a few dollars CHEAPER than Amazon's price after tax was added (no tax or shipping charges at Amazon).

Not gonna do the "price fight" thing at this late stage though with Amazon over a measly $3-$4 however... ain't worth it!

Don't Panic!

I think Drew Curtis, founder of Fark.com, has a valid point when he says not to worry about the "swine flu", he's been right about the media over-exaggerating before, especially in his book "It's Not News, It's Fark: How Mass Media Tries to Pass Off Crap As News". His opinion on the so-called "pandemic" can be found HERE...
