Experts: “We can just keep using the chairs we have.”


"According to the report, chair production can cease entirely with no negative consequences for American consumers, as the many good chairs now on store shelves and available at garage sales are sufficient to satisfy the country’s seating requirements for the immediate future." 
Amusing. And a good reminder that so many existing items can be found in second-hand shops and/or in antique stores, listed on Craigslist, Freecycle, eBay, and even found in many of your friends’ homes and/or those of family members (“hi, Dad!”); so why would consumers need to buy newly made merchandise?!
Yeah, reuse!

In A Zipcar

New York, NY 10001

Yesterday I felt an incredibly strong cry coming on that needed a very high level of privacy ASAP or things were going to get very uncomfortable.  Luckily I found a Zipcar a few blocks away from me for only 13 dollars an hour and booked it up quick!! It was a mid-size car that had room for 4 friends and 6 suitcases, which I thought was probably a little small for the cry I was about to have, but you take what you can get!!!!!   There was no driving involved, of course, because I couldn’t have that kind of distraction with my huge cry task at hand!!! I just sat in the Zipcar parking lot weeping in the car for exactly one hour and then returned to the world so very refreshed and anew.  The rest of the world can cry in their cars 24/7 while us privacy poor can only dream of something like that. I have to say that dipping into their extreme luxury for an hour was exactly what you would expect: an absolute dream come true!!  Great for your most volatile, extreme cries that nobody should ever see!!!

The government wouldn’t spend a dime on education, healthy food, drinkable water, assisting people in poverty, de-polluting the streets, or anything else of importance. But they would be on call to spend millions on equipping a small police force to fight off a group of defenseless protestors. You can argue with me that this is not a hate crime, when it so obviously is, but you can’t argue with me when I say that this government is too corrupt to even serve it’s purpose.
