    For the same brand?

    But yeah, some stores know people are picky with prices for the main item, but then assume everything else in the store will be competitive if the main item is well-priced. And that is another trick they use to siphon your cash.

    But what I do get is that I've come to a not-so-revelatory revelation -- Retail stores really, really rip you off when it comes to cables. It's common knowledge that things tend to be cheaper online, but the disparity in cable pricing (particularly hdmi) seems especially bad.
    On almost everything. I went to Best Buy to pick up a mouse (cheap one, $20, for my laptop). I saw the Naga mouse and considered picking it up. I checked Amazon before I left and it was like $20 cheaper online. I expect somewhat of a discount for shopping online, but not as much as Best Buy marks things up. Then they wonder why they're going out of business.

    Ah, right. I knew it meant that, but I guess I wouldn't think it sounded odd unless they referred to something else as that word. The verb sounds pretty innocuous to me.

    To most people it wouldn't, but because I have the sense of humor of a boy, it makes me laugh. It also doesn't help that I have a running joke with my friend and another trainer at the gym about it (there's a kettle bell exercise called "clean snatch").

    But I also laugh when someone says "If we do do that" hehehe

    Always surprised at people being surprised by the size of big or tiny things.

    Pretty sure one of my relatives on Facebook is a kind of a perv, because my suggestion box is always full of half-naked women with "1 person" following them. When I click, it's always the same guy who's following. I click the x on several of these, but it seems like he's following a countless number of 'em. Crazy. There was also that kind-of-nasty message he posted on some chick's wall, which somehow came up in my feed. Erp.

    Also, I still haven't been switched to Timeline. I'm just waiting for FB to do it to see how long it takes. Timeline's cover photo/profile bit looks fine, but the way it splits up your entries (left/right/left/right/etc) and crops photos is really poor design for the PC. It looks great on mobile devices, but that's it. I'm pretty sure that's all zuckerbro cares about at this point, though.
