I don't care if it's bottled or not, it's just too darned plain for me. Brew tea or coffee with it, flavor it w/ fruit, whatever. I just can't stand plain ol' water.

Besides, as my grandfather used to say: "I don't drink water. Fish f--k in it." Yeah, he was... quirky.


I'm the same way, I don't drink plain water. I can choke down a glass if there is nothing else availible.

As for bottled, some of them just have a funky after taste.

Also alegations of locking employees in the build over night.

On water...

Postby gwalihir on Wed Jan 05, 2005 10:22 am

...main thing is, most fast food places your alternatives are soda or straight water. Soda has carbolic acid, which leaches the calcium from your bones, and either corn syrup or aspartame, either one of which are nasty to your system.

My personal preference (please don't call this spam: I'm not linking to corporate websites or anything) is something called "Fruit2O" I've found lately: water with a little natural fruit flavoring and Splenda. A lot healthier than soda, pretty much as tasty. I highly recommend it as a health alternative.

On Walmart...

Postby gwalihir on Wed Jan 05, 2005 10:29 am

The scariest aspect of Walmart is their strategy for keeping prices down. They force suppliers into exclusive contracts, then demand they continually lower prices to the point that the supplier cannot break even without dismissing lots of employees and reducing benefits for those who are left. They force their way into small towns and take business away from all the Mom and Pop stores in the area, ruining the local economy.

And I do mean FORCE! Some communities have voted not to allow them to open: Walmart then turned around and acquired the contracts for those towns' main businesses and blackmailed them into allowing the stores to open.

As far as treatment of employees: friend of a friend was pregnant, her water broke at work there: she was told she had to finish her shift or get fired!

Walmart is progressively undermining the economy of the US. I avoid shopping there on principle, for the reasons described above, and because of their censorious conduct on everything from media to pharmaceuticals.

Porn at Walmart? Not in our lifetime, unless things change drastically!

Why is it so difficult to resist any link that has the word "porn" in it?

:roll:

Very odd, when you think about it.

There's nothing wrong with being a pervert :P We all are. All animals are.

I, myself, yell "SEX!" or "ORGY!" in my classroom (I teach to 14yr olds) to get their attention when they tend to stop listening. That, or bery subtly and naturally included those words in my explanation of conjugaison and past participle. Works every time :P

I'm afraid only men have this difficulty. When I browse a search page I instinctively skip anything that suggests porn.....
Mainly because I know it will bombard me with spyware!

Correction

Postby HiFranc on Sun Jan 23, 2005 2:21 am

Only some men have that difficulty. I've never understood this obsession with porn -- if you miss it, why not have the real thing instead of a facsimili(sp?)? In any case there's more to life than that.

Confession: Easiest way of grabbing my attention is the word "controvosy" with a link to an article on a reputable news site.

Thank yah! I do exist. I didn't know I was of the urban legend kind! And I love my teens. Or my 'muffins', as I lovingly call them.

Probally off topic.... not sure what the topic around here is anymore, and too lazy to check... but have a concept in my head I just can't make go away, so will put it in *your* heads, then I don't have to think about it any more!! Anyway....

Started seeing some of those old 'Rainbow Bright' dolls showing up in stores again. For those who don't remember, or never knew, is a sorta Cabbage-patch looking doll with freckles and a bright blue outfit trimed with rainbows. Has all these friends of the rainbow colors called the Color Kids or some such. Anyway, between that, and the appropration of the rainbow as a GBL symbol, can't help but imaging some creepy pedophile whenever I hear the skittles slogan 'Taste the Rainbow'

Yeah, you can see why I wanted this out of my head, even if it means putting it into yours. My appoligies for any therapy this might end up requireing.

Wal-Mart? Porn? Not that likely.

Postby moriah on Thu Feb 10, 2005 12:06 pm

I work for the Evil Empire, but by proxy -- contract work at least helps me feel like there's a layer between me and the Evil.

But I get to work in their buildings, either at their Home Office or their distribution centers. Only did one project that involved the stores -- you know those little kiosks in Layaway or Customer Service where you can sell your soul to Wal-Mart for $5.15 an hour? I installed those -- or, at least, ran the network cabling for them and ran the script to make them show up on the network. Got to go to Cali -- San Bernadino area, actually.

I think the reason they will never allow porn is that big picture of Sam Walton is always staring at them. It's like Big Brother -- he's everywhere, and he's watching YOU. Yes, I'm serious. His face is all over their home office, their distribution centers.... everywhere.

What merchandising "associate" could design shelf space for porn with huge pictures of an old man staring at them all day?

You'd be surprised what little moral people have. Besides how can they run do what they do to their employees with his picture around. From what I've heard it was actually a good company to work for when he was running it.

I work on the helpdesk for a retail chain that does sell porn. hastings
