Pocket Ninja: I was actually thinking about buying a Kindle Paperwhite until I logged on and saw that it wouldn't ship until December 21st. December 21st? What the fark is that? Jesus, I thought online shopping was supposed to be efficient. Christ, give me a chance to stand in line for 10 hours and knife some schmuck in the back to get it by the weekend. Way to fail, Amazon.


My bf wanted one of these. I reminded him that he already had a kindle paperweight at home.

I love this thread. It's a combination of "fark all those retailers" along with praise and critiques of the newest consumer product.

In a wine-induced haze I made the mistake of staggering across the street to Walmart this evening in search of Wheat Thins and carburetor cleaner*. I now know what the zombie apocalypse will bring.

Even shorter guide: buy nothing. By all means, go out and about early and often and waste all the salespeople's time you can, but buy nothing. Take whatever free samples you can but buy nothing. Make it so expensive a proposition for them to ram a distant shame-driven waste fest down our throats that they are forced to cease the year 'round bombardment of christmas advertising. Force some reason upon society. Buy nothing.
