If I knew I could get a cup of joe, some soup, and a free Thermos out of it I may have jumped on this whole blogwagon years ago.

Jesus liked his with a dab of honey and a squirt of frothy goat milk straight from the teat.

The company claims the Stainless King can keep hot things hot and cold things cold for 24 hours

So if I fill it with hot soup, and drop in a popsicle, it'll keep the soup hot and the popsicle cold? I doubt it. I think you meant "or".

I love my Stanley thermos. If I have to work a 12 hour shift with no coffee pot it's a necessity.

I would somone pick out a thermos for me?

I saw shipped a thermos of coffee overnight and it remained hot but read shipped a thermos of ebola overnight and it remained hot.

Several pages dedicated to his "discovery" of two things (vacuum bottles and overnight delivery) that everyone has known about for decades. "Millennial check on Aisle 12!"

Stay tuned for Robinson Meyer's next article where he writes about these things called "claw hammers" that can not only drive nails in but... and here's the miracle part... PULL THEM BACK OUT.

"How does it know?"

Well that was a long-winded article about a decades-old product working as advertised.

To be fair, what's the point of hammering in a nail if it's just going to be pulled back out?  Your fancy "claw hammer" seems pretty pointless now, doesn't it?

My thoughts exactly.

Yes, and no ordinary one.

In all likelihood, a truck was going to drive that route anyway. What's wrong with adding a few ounces to its load on the way?

Do you really think they would send a truck half way across the country for a single delivery?

crotchgrabber: I love my Stanley thermos. If I have to work a 12 hour shift with no coffee pot it's a necessity.



I love my old green Stanley.  The current workplace doesn't have a communal coffee pot, so it's a life-saver.  It's also nice because it keeps me honest to only drinking a liter of coffee a day.

Sadly, the current Stanley/Aladdin (Chinese production) models are crap for actually holding heat (I got one, it sucked, went back to Grandpa's Stanley, rust and all).  The Thermos brand ones are apparently quite a bit better than the current version of the classic green bottle.

Overnight is not a verb.

But I suppose if you're going to write things like 'normcore' you've already declared war on the English language.

Incorrect. With "or," you're implying that there is a thermos that will keep hot things hot, but not keep cold things cold. "And" does not imply what you're saying it does in this case.

It's a union hammer.

This month, the second time it ran the contest, it chose a more midwestern provider: Spyhouse Coffee in Minneapolis.

Was curious if they choose Spyhouse. Best damn coffee I've ever had in my life.

First trip there: "Do you have light roast coffee."
Batista: "All we have is light roast coffee."

You had me at "hello," Spyhouse.

The English language declared civil war on itself centuries ago. Nouns won their freedom to verb. Read the "Indefinite Articles to Secession," sometime.

Why not? It takes a week to make a jelly bean. That means it takes about two years to make a bag of jelly beans.

I love my Thermos. I pour hot coffee into it in the morning, and I'm still pouring steaming-hot coffee out of it in the afternoon.

Drive nails in AND pull them out?

Welcome to my ignore list, you bald-faced liar.

Thermos farking rocks. I don't drink coffee, but I love my water bottle and my can koozies. They just need to make some koozies that fit 22 ounce bottles and I can finally die happy.

"Overnight" is just as much a verb as "post".

And the brits did that. So nyah.
