    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.

    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

    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.

    I would indeed be ungrateful if I did not bear my testimony about the convenience and tastiness of "Quick 'n' Eat" pre-cooked Angus beef hamburger patties. Toss one in the microwave for 75 seconds or so, during which you toast a bun and slather on the condiments, and voila! A very good burger, esp. considering the ease and speed of preparation.

    Agreed. We used these on a scout camp out last summer. I was very skeptical about them, but ended up thinking they were just as good as the frozen uncooked burgers.

    Here's another quick and easy Costco meaty meal.

    Pre-cooked bacon - microwave for 20 seconds. Fry (cook) some corn tortillas. Melt some cheese. Put the cheese in the tortilla, put in a piece or two of bacon. Add mayonnaise and lettuce, and you have a delicious pseudo BLT Taco.

    What's the wattage of your microwave? Cooking time could vary and would like to be able to adjust accordingly.

    Mayonnaise on a taco. I hope to never encounter this concept again the rest of my life.

    I don't know the wattage, but I'm happy to report the patties don't require much precision to be cooked to tasty perfection. Assuming they're frozen, I'd do them 30-40 seconds a side, and maybe add 20 seconds more if your oven's underperforming. Not even I have screwed this up.

    i'd prefer something fresh off the grill, but if time is short the "Quick n' Eat" patties are a worthy substitute. BTW, I gave a couple of them to my law partner who zapped them for himself and his son, a Culinary Institute of America grad and a local chef. He pronounced them, "Pretty good!" So there's that.

    Didn't you read PAC's post? He does. Probably not a good idea to insult the most beloved poster in the history of BYU message boards. Very bad for the CS brand.
