Ridiculous. I was literally laughing out loud at parts on how bad these people were being played.

New season of the Grand Tour on Amazon Prime!

Love seeing all of the Sun Microsystems monitors on the “Cassini” episode of “7 Days Out” on Netflix.

So the high on Monday will be less than the low on Sunday. :awesome:

My New Year's Resolution is to stop mindlessly reading so much stuff on my phone. I was spending countless hours looking at my Github activity feed. I wrote about this before, but it was like the feeling of Christmas morning on what new features or bugs were fixed and I think I was honestly addicted to it. I removed a GitHub client from my phone and am trying to use it only for checking email and notifications.

@bxw11 I wonder how they can get away with putting fake non-discounted prices on things. I know it’s not advertising, but feels misleading.

@jplock to test this theory, I could build a script to crawl their catalogs and capture the date and current price. Leading up the holiday, if the number of items never before seen goes up, that would indicate that they are indeed adding discount only items to just attract buyers with lower quality clothes.

Hypothesis: retail chains that produce their own clothes inflate their catalogs with lesser quality clothes before the holiday season and specifically mark down the clothes causing the consumer to think they are getting a good deal.

Ex. Each year Vineyard Vines does a 20-30% off holiday sale (to clear out last year’s inventory). As part of the sale are always items that seem to have never been in their catalog until that sale (and definitely never offered at the non-discount price).

@jplock I rang in the new year by watching Infinity War on Netflix 👍👍

Very impressed with the bicycle friendliness in Barbie Puppy Rescue :)

That feeling when you look at your personal AWS bill in a month and realize the VPC endpoints you stood up to test with have cost you $85. :stare:
