To complete the senselessness, she plans on selling them in England.

Q:  Where was the toothbrush invented?

A:  Oklahoma.

EXPLANATION:  If it had been invented anywhere else, it would have been called a "teethbrush".

/old, yes.
//Okie, so I'm allowed.

Wow.  I used to do contract IT work for her office.  Holy shiat.
 
2013-03-05 02:50:55 AM
The cops would sure appreciate a holler
If you happen to spot one Ms. Beate Proeller*
She gets these weird rushes,
From pilfering toothbrushes,
So yeah, this will be one strange collar


*THAT is her real name?!
 
2013-03-05 02:52:16 AM
fta According to authorities, Proeller created fraudulent price tags and placed them over the original price tags on the products.

Just so I understand, she created 200 fake price tags, took 200 toothbrushes off the shelf, sat in the isle and glued the 200 fake price tags onto the 200 toothbrushes, carried 200 toothbrushes to the cash register, had the cashier ring up 200 toothbrushes, and not one employee was even slightly curious? This is the stuff of Candid Camera skits and employee orientation videos.

I'm sure she didn't steal them all at once, and the article even implies it was from more than one Kohl's.

So "electronic" toothbrushes are valued at $80 each (completely unrelated to what their actual worth may be - wholesale cost probably @ $1.50 each))?  I can buy a used computer and a toothbrush for that.

/ common sense - how do it work?

She's been busy over the past decade or so.  I knew I remembered that name for a reason:

"200 high priced electronic toothbrushes from the Kohl's department stores in Middletown Township and Morton Borough."

From what I'm getting out of that, it was more than one store and most likely more than one time. 16k divided by 200 equals about $80 per brush, now demand for those high end brushes isn't that high, I would guess stores wouldn't typically keep many in stock, maybe 6 or 8 at best at any given time, so how often was she doing this? Makes you wonder why they didn't catch on sooner.

Some of those things sells for much more than that. Sonicare brand brushes are priced as high as $200.

My point was that price and value in today's market are completely unrelated.  Example:  $800+ for a key for a Lexus?  farking ridiculous.  A kitchen timer ($2,99) and a toothbrush ($0.89)  are just as effective.  And will probably last longer, at a much lower lifetime cost).

More like she's gonna sell them at a local flea market. Nothing brings out scum and villainy like a flea market. Mostly stolen goods, and shiat that 'fell off a truck.' The police really ought to be all over them.

Well the clinical testing on those brushes (Sonicare brand especially) show substantially better results over a standard tooth brush, especially for people with gum disease or other oral health issues.

Now if I was faced with the possibility of losing my teeth and getting dentures and I knew a $200 brush could possibly help save my own teeth, then it would be worth every penny of that money.

Common sense - That's how that works.

I don't know, they say the action of the brush is such that normal brushing can't quite duplicate it, and it gets under your gums and between the teeth better. Whether that's true or not, I honestly couldn't say, but if I had issues with my teeth and there was a chance a $200 brush could make a difference I'd gladly spend it.

Either way...why would anyone bother? That is a shiatload of work to steal a few toothbrushes.

I guess my big problem is not with the $200 capital investment (ridiculous), but with the $30 replacement brush every 60 days, the limited life, and the dubious "clinical trial data " (taught college statistics, and know how that works).  Or the whole idea that there is a great deal of marketing bullshiat designed to mislead.

/Your teeth, your money.  Mine are fine with regular toothbrushes (bamboo twigs for +/- a year in RVN, since the farking army never sent toothbrushes), and I'm 67.

price and value are two different things but they are absolutely related.  if someone values that Lexus key at $800 then they pay $800 for that Lexus key then that Lexus is key is worth precisely $800

"So "electronic" toothbrushes are valued at $80 each (completely unrelated to what their actual worth may be - wholesale cost probably @ $1.50 each))?"

what they're worth is what someone is willing to pay for them so yes - they are valued and worth $80 in that case assuming people are buying them.
