Good Deed or Scam? (OT)

Filed under: Barnes & Noble, Bill Bickel, books, charity, Christmas, scams — Cidu Bill @ 7:20 pm

Maybe somebody who works at Barnes & Noble can clear something up for me:

Barnes & Noble stores has special displays of children’s Christmas books by the registers, and they’re asking customers to buy one or more and leave them in a special box to be distributed to needy kids (because in our county there are no needy kids living in Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or atheist families; but that’s another matter).

I bought and donated a couple of books, and then I started to wonder: Customers are buying these books at full retail price which means needy kids do get free books, but Barnes & Noble gets their normal profit, which is give-or-take half the retail price of the book — and I wonder whether this special display also makes a good dumping ground for Christmas books that aren’t selling (because how many people are going to be very selective about books they’re giving away to strangers?)

If I’m missing a fact or two that might put Barnes & Noble in a slightly better light here, I hope somebody will tell me.

Another record-breaking day for page-views (by a wide margin)

… and I probably owe it all to people searching for lesbians.

What Were They Thinking?

Battlestar Lesbianica

This cracked me up because it’s almost word-for-word how I was mocking the recap just a few hours earlier.

And there’s very little exaggeration here: SciFi made a big point of this entirely gratuitous plot point in at least two separate recaps; and in the final recap, just 10 minutes before the end of the 2-hour movie, the fact that two of the characters had had a lesbian relationship was the only plot point they included.

See two women kiss! In fact, since the DVD contains the “unrated” version, they might kiss twice!

Okay, maybe I’m missing something — it’s been known to happen — but wouldn’t his reaction have made more sense if her safety seal had already been popped?
