    See, this is why SO MUCH of Amazon is a cesspool, now. I’d say the MAJORITY of Amazon reviews are bullshit. Many of the products are coming from other countries and it’s really hard to report a non-delivery scam to Amazon. Scams are EVERYWHERE on Amazon. Amazon doesn’t even have a PHONE NUMBER.

    I had to BAN my Mom from using Amazon because it’s only for seasoned veterans who can spot scams. And it takes real diligence. Even many of Amazon Basic products are total shit.

    There are sites where you can check whether Amazon reviews are bullshit, that’s how bad it’s gotten.

    If this happened to me, I’d be inclined to go give that company a total shit review with about 10 fake accounts.

    Amazon needs to immediately cut companies like that off. Immediately.
    eBay is fucking TERRIBLE, too. Look at this obviously real account with 13,000+ reviews in 7 years, selling anything and everything. FWIW, I found this looking for Robotech Legacy Collection 7:

    Yeah, the idiots in his own gov't who thought storing that insanely volatile shit there for 6 years was a good idea.

    it's amazing how fast people can produce evidence against bureaucracies and how they hinder progress after the fact. Maybe we should get rid of them?

    No, it's obvious that what is needed is more red tape and pinch points for more officials to bribe.

    just went to Google Maps to check that out and there's an icon for the explosion, is that normal for Google Maps to mark these things?

    I mean it's kind of cool because if you click it it shows this:

    I think they're crowdsourced updates, similar to Wikipedia. If you are looking for sat images this article is interesting:

    Putting this here in case anyone is interested...I'm rooting for something NRA related.

    Watch live: New York AG Letitia James makes 'major national announcement'

    edit: not only did CBSNews spit the bit on their live feed this is one big wet fart lawsuit.

    Op-Ed: U.S. leaders knew we didnít have to drop atomic bombs on Japan to win the war. We did it anyway.

    I wonder if we would have used the bomb in Vietnam instead of Japan in that timeline?

    Pretty strong clapback from NYAG:



    Feeling a little more positive about this but still a bit skeptical. I read through a thread of the alleged fraud and...well...I wouldn't want to be Mr. LaPierre right about now.

    I recently participated in this story, after having worked 4 years under this shitty fucking company. I'm unbelievably relieved to have this article out here and to personally help bring down this terrible fucking company.

    FUCK ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE.

    Years of sexual abuse, mental abuse, physical abuse, among many other things all taking place in the Kansas City Drafthouse location, FINALLY coming to light. Working for that company literally destroyed my mental state and I had to take therapy and get on meds (that I am still on) after working there. I wouldn't say it destroyed my life, but it got goddamn close, and many of the people I worked with there, their lives WERE ruined. I have no idea if these theaters will reopen when the Pandemic is over, but if it does, please think about this article before giving that company another cent. But please please please share it on your socials, with friends and family, anyone who has ever been a fan of Alamo Drafthouse.

    I feel like in a different year this would have been front-page news for an entire month if not longer.

    Yep. Big, big holy shit moment—I’d heard rumblings about this sort of thing for years, but never would have guessed the real number was 10% and that there was no real hope of ever making the program work. And we all moved right along because that’s about the time Trump started endorsing extrajudicial executions and really clanging that “fuck term limits” bell. And something about a coast of the country burning down, too.

    Spoiler alert: don't read that wall of text. Just read the headline and be done with the utter ass who wrote it.



    Jesus.
