I have like one post from 4 or 5 years ago. Now I'm going to start tweeting about the olympics. Because fuck you.

I never realized how shitty my phone's GPS was (it was always good enough for driving), until I started playing this fucking new game (you know the one). I can literally touch a certain gym's real-world counterpart with my hand, but in the game, I'm running back and forth from one side of it to the other, always "too far away."
Nobody can save KMart or Sears.
You're right on KMart, it is a dead duck. I disagree on Sears, though. Sears could be saved by a competent CEO with knowledge of how retail works. Instead they have a Randian maniac who cannot be bothered to even show up in person to board meetings (preferring instead to yell at the board members over a videoconference connection). There are plenty of worthwhile assets belonging to Sears; if a competent person was in charge the company could be made relevant again. Instead it is circling the drain at a higher rate than before.
$4.3M seems like a deal if he was able to keep it open another year
He has utterly trashed the company, he started on autopilot and now he is in accelerated decay. He gets the pay because he can demand it as he owns more of the company than does the board and they can't refuse anything he wants to do - they can't even fire him. It is still open in spite of what he has done, not because of it. I don't know if you are been in a Sears in the past few years but he has pretty much turned the stores into Lord of the Flies between the very few employees that are around. It's not a pleasant experience to for customers to see and its even worse for the employees to experience.
