"Just the quality of it, the way it sits on your face," makes MAC one of the most popular...

I don't always let MAC sit on my face...  but when I do....

TFA: "They're highly pigmented makeup. They last you all day long,"

MAC makeup is adequate. Comes in some good colors. It's not THAT great. It's makeup. It only really lasts all day if you use primer and set it with powder and like that lady says, "ain't nobody got time fo' dat."

Its not so much about that, that its about the US government enforcing the will of a corporation and shutting down competition that is beneficial for the consumer.

I still don't see why the CIA, NSA, TSA, and FBI can't be combined into one department.  Anyone know why? (No, not waiting for a punchline...genuinely curious)

On part alleged methods and focus of efforts, one part territorial pissing, one part mo departments = mo cash flow thereto and mostly, it would totally blow the delusion that they aren't just one, huge, monolithic fourth reich clusterf*ck.  Bureaucracies are filter feeders.

When I was a child you could get fake lips for a nickel. They came in assorted colours (red, blue, green).

They tasted like paraffin wax.

I'd like to say it was the worst tasting candy you could get, but not even close.

THRILLS gum (available in Canada) tasted strangely like soap. For those kids who preferred to pre-empt granny washing their mouths out with soap.

And some of the worst tasting candies known to man are the most frequently given out by evil witches. You know which they are. You've eaten yourself sick on surprisingly small quantities of them.

Circus peanuts
Candy corn
Marshmellow peeps
The wrong licorice
The wrong Easter egg candies
Even the wrong jellybeans (I can eat licorice but I don't like licorice jelly beans much)

A lot of candy is invented by people who hate children, it seems. Not to mention toys and children's books.

But I digress.

Is it possible to really make fake lipstick? If it works as lipstick, isn't it ipso facto lipstrick?

I am sure you can fake the high price brands, but not the lipstick per se.

Here's something I found in the dollar store:

fake tongue piercings

ringoblog.com


I don't know if it would work, let alone fool anybody, but I am tempted to try it out on my nieces.

There's some instructions on YouTube and elsewhere on how to fake a barbell tongue piercing using magnets. Sounds a bit risky, uncomfortable, but more likely to work.

The CIA is supposed to be dealing with outside threats, while the FBI is supposed to concern threats in our borders. I'm not sure that combining them would be good for the average citizen. At least being made to compete keeps the 'buddy system' down for these guys. There's enuf looking over my shoulder as it sits.

I could see Cia and Nsa combined, along with Tsa and Fbi. Each Military branch has its own intelligence branch, too. I'm not sure they could be added in. It'd be like having the retarded kid on your football team...ya just wouldn't give him the ball.

Let me guess? Game cosmetics from China that are laced with chemicals that will kill you?

This is my shocked face.
/yes we should be stopping this.

I personally hate when government regulation keeps my water and food safe.  I also dislike my currency being genuine and buying things that are actually what they say.

/but that's just me.

There are more "intelligence" organizations than those.  I believe the DoD has one.

Two answer your question, I see the need for to investigative agencies.  Won that is for internal to the US like the FBI and the other that does intelligence gathering outside the US like the CIA.  I think there is value in keeping the two separate.

You know, if the DHS is serious about this, they could form a division solely dedicated to enforcing our laws about what or who can come into the country. They could call it the Department of Immigration and Customs something.  DIC is a great acronym.

\Probably is better than ICE.

Don't worry, Obama doesn't know anything about this.

Why is the DHS involved? Really shouldnt customs be handling shiat like this and the DHS make sure the TSA keeps groping us.

jayphat: /yes we should be stopping this.


Actually, no.

Counterfeiting commercial products is a matter for the civil courts.

The thing is, that our corporate masters would like to make enforcement something tax payers have to pay for, so their pet politicians are doing it regardless of it not being the public's problem.

Remember how Napster had to be sued in a civil case and they never hauled off Napster's creator to jail?.

company A makes something for $4, and sells it for $8, but hey, Amazons got it for $2, wow, what a deal!

THIS right here is the thing nobody's picking up on: Customs and Border Protection is part of DHS.

NEWS FLASH: Customs does its job: stopping counterfeit imports.

Counterfeiting? Sure. When the stuff is laced with stuff that WILL kill you, that's a problem for them to address.

I'd be willing to ban all food, pet food, and anything applied to your person from China.

However, that's not what this story is about.

This is about the Feds going after counterfeit goods, which is not their job.

MAC's lawyers should be pursuing this with Amazon. It is a civil matter for the courts.

Homeland Security should not be involved in any way.
