If you grew up with Led Zeppelin, you might like Greta Van Fleet.

We just launched a series of TV commercials using one of their songs:

Love their sound.

>>I just ordered a cheap set of Amazon Basics flatwear

I tried some of their Pinzon sheets. Only $38 and they are better than anything else I have tried for under $100.

But the real rednecks would see that and say "hold my beer, I got a spud gun in the garage".


Good graphic showing all of Amazon's in-house brands.

Monetization / Re: Waze teaches G Maps about ads

Waze officially launches its ad program for small businesses.

More and more we are seeing people willing to pay for expedited shipping. We did a lot of testing last year on shipping costs, shipping methods, upselling expedited shipping, free shipping, etc. and found that free shipping isn't the necessity it has been. It seems like people are more willing to pay for shipping and when you give them an incentive to upgrade their shipping to 2 day delivery they are willing to do so.

I have a 98 Honda Civic and a 2000 Honda Odyssey. We are trying to kill both of them to justify buying something newer but they just won't die. We put a couple hundred here and there into them but nothing expensive enough to make us scrap them.

Marketing / Re: Trust Seals - Overhyped?
« on: February 27, 2018, 07:01:20 PM »
I know we have done some A/B testing with different seals to see what has an effect on sales and conversion rate. I don't have any of the specifics of the test available but there were some noticeable differences when we showed different seals. Most of our sites have Norton, McAfee, and BBB but our main site is just BBB.

There is one of these by one of the parks my kids like going to and they love getting books from there and dropping off old ones.

I used to eat alfalfa sprout and peanut butter sandwiches as a kid all the time. And I actually liked them. Always hated bean sprouts though.

>>but ya need to get the food (and guns) under control

Perfect solution! Give the kids guns and let them hunt their own food.

I liked Oliver in his earlier years but once he got on the big "attack the commercial food industry" kick he went on a few years back he started getting annoying. Does he really think anyone who eats chicken nuggets cares that they use mechanically separated chicken?

And I would never think to put lemon on steak. I would use it in a marinade for some middle eastern steak dishes with some flank or skirt steak or something but never on a ribeye or NY strip or anything like that.

"“this testing does not irritate or harm the robot”

Yeah, right. This incident is just being loaded into the Skynet servers for future retaliation.
