I have long wanted to know what photo viewing software they have on all the CSI and other style shows. They can take a blurry picture of a big area and zoom into a reflection in a window and tell you the license plate of car in the reflection or zoom into other things that all the software I have can't do.

MS Paint.

Costco is screwed no matter which option they choose here. If they had donated the peanut butter, the headlines would have been "Costco donates potentially tainted peanut butter to NM food banks." Either way, they end up with a tarnished image, even if all of the peanut butter is untainted.

In this case it sounds like the product was damaged anyway, with peanut oil leaking out of the jars, so they made a decision not to sell or donate damaged merchandise. Since they were screwed either way, this was likely the least damaging of the two options.

"NO! Get out of here with that Ubuntu, and lay off the poor Linux, will ya?! SHEEZE! You're a creep! Go away, we were having a good time until you showed up, Canonical! ARGH! Go have some coffee with cream, or something! Because I'll tell you something! This is a happy place!"

Seriously, I'm going back to Debian after this crap...

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
