    I have ethical issues with someone drinking $17K in one bottle.

    We are finding out that China doesn't seem to want all of our plastic recycling. You can no longer recycle any plastic except milk jugs at the county transfer station and I'm thinking it'll be the end of plastic going in the recycling bin for residential recycling at the start of next year.

    Couple this with "Strawless in Seattle" and it is not a good time to joke about recycle bins in the PNW.

    Probably true, but you can take some pride in the fact that there will be a moment when you're taking the most expensive piss in the world.

    What if they divide it up into glasses?

    17K is nowhere near the most expensive piss in the world. For example, here is a 50 year old whiskey that is $139,999.00. This also isn't close to the most expensive either. There are some that are north of a million dollars

    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    I like how the Cosco in Seattle tells you can that can buy your sugary beverages minus the City of Seattle Sweetened Beverage Tax at its non-Seattle locations...

    Of course drinks from Starbucks (including those yummy orange mocha frappechinos) are exempt...

    Here's an idea for Costco. Decline to renew memberships for people who make returns that "shock the conscience." While I've never seen a woman with the balls to bring back a Christmas tree after Christmas, I have seen mattresses that appear to be around a decade old and a porch swing that appeared to have weathered every summer since 1995.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I sometimes refer to the Costco return line as the line of shame.

    Pretty simple really. I look at who is in line and what they are returning.
