eideteker -- If not Aquaman, then who?
The Wonder Twins.
Aquaman is ideal for this. He's obscure enough for the folks who think they're nerd-hip for having seen Iron Man in the theater, accessible enough for the masses to get it and simple enough to explain to someone who doesn't.
pooplord -- How much should we rent our place out for during inauguration?
For your nightly rate, divide the current retail price of your most expensive but inconvenient-to-move possession by its weight in pounds and multiply by $100.
Start with $1000 per night, then subtract $100 for each 10th of a mile you are from the nearest Metro station (i.e. 3/10 = $300) then add $100 back for each 100 miles away the renter is coming from.
Depends on where you run your ad. Craigslist: $300 per night. Washington Post: $400 per night. The City Paper: $700 per night. The Hill: $900 per night.
Multiply your security deposit or home insurance deductible by three.
renob423 -- why does cvs give such shitty coupons? and why is cvs still in business? you can buy pretty much everything at that store cheaper somewhere else.
Although they know since nobody ever plans to go into CVS, nobody will ever have thought to bring any coupons with them. One would think they could get away with giving out super awesome coupons, but remember, it's CVS.
CVS remains in business to provide a monthly dose of incompetence, frustration, and contact with subintelligent cashiers to all the people out there who think it's "ridiculous" to pay $2.95 shipping to drugstore.com for their prescriptions.
Old people need to check their blood pressure regularly on the machine.
While doctors have to endure a few years of a shitty residency after they complete their extensive schooling as a pre-payback for the cushy job that awaits them, pharmacists need a place to look back upon and resent too.
I would donate to more charities if:
I had more money.
I really cared enough about any of them.
I didn't think most charities squandered their donations on administrative costs and stuff.
I wasn't afraid of getting on their mail/phone future begging list.
Nothing says "I totally forgot about our office gift exchange and had to run out at lunchtime and pick something up" like:
A jar scented candle.
A travel mug from Starbucks.
A 7-11 gift certificate.
A gift basket of spa soaps and lotion from some noname brand they had in the gift aisle of CVS (another reason why they stay in business).
I recently saw a commercial on TV for a DVD set of seven classic television Christmas specials, including Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town. What are the other four?
A Happy Herculoids Holiday.
Comet the Brown-Nosing Reindeer.
The Lord Who Was Too Little To Leap.
Parson Brown's Christmas Eve Party.
