i signed on to groupon about 4 months ago, and have yet to see an offer worth a 2nd look. that "the market" values it higher than GOOG at the same pre-IPO stage is lunacy.
Yes, but in a double utley you can put your utley on top they other guy's utley, and you're the winner. (Swish)

as an observer of your posts for years, i think its fairly safe to say you're not the target demographic of groupon.

As far as I can tell, it's for chicks who like spa treatments and cupcakes.

i guess it's like eating christmas eve, which most people apparently dont do and yet my family always did growing up. depends on the tradition.


We ate corned beef once in a while, but never on st. Patricks day. Because my parents like to believe that they have no ethnicity.

Also, re: Stangel http://kissingsuzykolber.uproxx.com/201 ... angel.html

That is basically everything I've ever felt about the guy wrapped into one package

and i dont even like stangel. maybe 1 of every 15 tweets of his that gets re-tweeted is funny. i dont follow him. but i dont care about him. and hes certainly not even relevant enough in my life to hate. like, i had chipper jones. because i see his dumb face 18 times a year, and have to read stories about him, and he plays for a team that i hate and that i will watch a lot of this year. i think i have a reason to hate him. other than when he is skull #$!&@ the mets.

but anyway. whatever. he just seems so inconsequential. carry on.

Honestly, I hate him because I shouldn't even spend energy on hating him (as you said, inconsequential) but I have no choice because at least 10 people I follow feel as if something he said is worth retweeting on a semi-consistent basis

It's like loving a radio station that occasionally plays total crap or when your favorite band plays a turd no one likes at a concert

the easiest way to fix that is to block re-tweets from the mouthbreathes who retweet his stuff. you cant block the RT with comments, but if you just block @ericstangel and then block retweeting from the people who do it, you probably wont have to see any of his stuff anymore.

or you could just scroll past it
