When You Put Your Obsolete TV Out on the Sidewalk, You Shouldn’t Tell People that it’s FREE!!! – Or IT WORKS!!!!!

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

The reason is that your old analog CRT TV now has a negative value.

Yes, I know you paid “good money” for it, but that was then and this is now.

Costco Mexican Soda Evolution – First Came Coke, Then Came Pepsi, But Now Here Comes El Medio Litro, The King

Friday, October 26th, 2012

First came Coke, all the way from Mexico, all the way back in aught-six. (You see, they use  sugar as the sweetener south of the border, you know, instead of corn syrup.)

Then came the 12 oz. Coke in a Coke Bottle purveyors, like this lovely Hayes Valley Taco Model from the Gap:

And then came the Mexican Pepsi at the Costco:

But now comes the King of Them All, El Medio Litro, the half-litre of Mexican Coke in a bottle:

I only saw one case at Costco #144 in SoMA, just recently.

I don’t know what they go for, probably something betwixt $18-24 for 24.

Who knows what Mexican-made beverage Costco will offer next…
