Oh and Prime _is_ a great deal, if you're a frequent customer.
However, some of the things which make Prime a great deal were things which Amazon used to give to every customer as part of their basic customer service.
That likely wasn't soot from exhaust, it was brake dust. Automotive exhaust unless it's diesel has a very low soot footprint, you're talking 20 PPM or less in counts even back in the 90's. I was an apprentice in the 90's when the switch over from non-metallic aka full asbestos to semi-metallic happened. And you'd find that shit everywhere, and I do mean everywhere. The vic20 we used for alignments was full of it, it would get into tool cabinets, into air lines if they'd been hug for a while, it would even clog your compressor air-intake. Exhaust was almost always vented outside(or with the doors opens) since you have a CO hazard in enclosed spaces.
Until the real dangers of asbestos were known, simply knocking the brakes loose was the standard practice even into the late 90's. Meaning when you broke them loose you were kicking asbestos and other particulate into the air, and of course breathing it in. Then we started spraying down the drums and rotors to mitigate the dust problem. I go for chest x-rays every 3-4 years to check for mesothelioma and for good reasons.
I don't know....maybe wait for the actual reviews? Yeah, that does mean we have to wait a bit more when a new game comes out.
The "traditional professional game website" reviewers were falling all over it and jerking themselves off about how great the title was. Those were also the same sites fawning over pieces of shit like Dragon Age 2, and threw a hissyfit calling consumers "entitled" over the complete shitshow that was the Mass Effect 3 ending.
Oh, c'mon!! 'Offtopic' my shiny!
That was *funny*!
In a thread and on a topic that desperately needed it before comas set in!
With no intent to belittle or harm anyone. With all the *other* kind of mean & hurtful jokes out there, I'm sure Snoop would get a chuckle here on jokingly assigning him 'comic-book-superhero powers of partying' status.
People need to chill on the hyper-sensitivity.
No wonder, since they can't stand US citizens being able to do more than subsistence.
You make a good point.
On the other hand, UPS and FedEx are deisgned for any customer to send any type of package from anywhere to anywhere, using any of many services. Amazon's will be designed for only Amazon to send packages from the places they choose, and they need not deliver everywhere - they can have UPS deliver to small towns for them. Amazon doesn't need to ship those cookies grandma made for you and she's shipping from Tiny Town, Colorado, paying by check. Amazon Shipping will have one customer sending packages, and sending only from Amazon's warehouses, using the standardized box sizes that Amazon chooses.
There may be enough differences that although Amazon can't make a better retail shipping company, they can make one that works better FOR AMAZON, for some packages. You may have seen the back of a UPS truck looks a bit chaotic because there are all these different sizes and shapes of boxes. On Amazon trucks, they'll all fit neatly and efficiently on the shelf, with one medium box being exactly same the same size as two small boxes.
I thought we were talking about the guy who said Musk's rocket blew up
So long as someone says at least one true thing, then it doesnt matter if they then say false things immediately following that?
Do you also follow this model? If I look into your past posts here will I see this same pattern? You say one true thing then lie your ass off afterwards? Is that it?
Now the shipping/logistics folks get to join in on the fun of being actively hated by your employer!
No doubt some Palestinians got a raw deal in 1967. Now their grandchildren are bombing schoolkids, hospitals, and paramedics. Neither group is the good guy in that conflict, if you look at it with any intellectual honesty.
As far as "most people concerned", voting suggests that most in the US support Israel, though some support the Palestinians (most of *those* do in fact prattle on about the Jews' conspiracies to take over the US), and some see that two groups killing each other is just bad all around.
It seems to be the nature of warriors, Social Justice warriors and most other kinds, to always take sides. In this case, they've picked the Israeli side. I find that neither surprising nor inconsistent with their core world view that the world is full of weak victims who need a SJW to ride in on a white horse and save them.
