Every time I sign on to MyCokeRewards, the site requests that I link it to Facebook and Twitter. The Eggheads in Coke's IT dept. may believe that these two companies will be relevant in five years, but I've got NEWS for you. Facebook will be IRRELEVANT and Twitter will be close to death. So please stop your NAGGING sign on ritual where I have to click "skip for now" when your sign on process insists I link your rewards site to these two corporate dinosaurs. Thank you.
Remember that commercial with Danika dressed like a Victoria Secret's model? At first I thought they might be selling some Extenz-style nutrient and then found out it's just Domain names. They undercut competitors so badly on price, they should call themselves YeahDaddy.
He was asked to say those soothing words yesterday to prevent a meltdown of the financial markets. In exchange for his cooperation, he has advance notice of the Greek withdrawal. And today Gold rallies, makes perfect sense.
Before the crash, the Captain and Co-Pilot had a serious discussion about flying the plane. The Co-Pilot was very hungry and frustrated for ACTUAL flying experience. Germans by their very nature are control freaks, so the Co-Pilots NEVER get to fly the plane, because none of the Captains want to take the risk or surrender control of the aircraft to ANYONE. There is SO LITTLE to do up in that cockpit anyway. So the Captain goes to the bathroom. The Co-Pilot decides to take the plane out of AutoPilot to enjoy a few minutes of flying time while the Captain is in the head. Trouble is the Captain was quick about getting back and the Co-Pilot panicked a bit and couldn't re-engage the AutoPilot. As the Captain kept knocking louder and louder, the Co-Pilot simply couldn't bring himself to open the door and face the consequences of taking the plane out of AutoPilot. So instead of getting grounded by the Captain, he put the plane into the side of the mountain. Message to Captains.....SHARE THE STICK.
Big fans of people-killing stocks....that pair of sociopaths never thought twice about stepping over people to make a buck. It's all about free will, you know and why not profit from it.
Maybe the movie Chicken Run with it's POW chicken camp was more accurate than we thought....
Yes, maybe we should be "tweeting" instead of being the last Mohicans on the Yahoo message boards, but Twitter is another story.....It reminds me of a bunch of people shouting at a dinner party, I just don't get-it....oh well and here I am.
The only thing I agree about is your take on women drivers. It's insane, either it's the distracted woman who is too-busy applying her make-up or it's your middle-aged woman (usually wearing over-sized sunglasses) who is driving like a maniac....Tailgating, weaving between the lanes, endangering everyone on the road with her aggressive behaviors. But you need to register that Suburu needs to fire their American advertising firm and find another one. Sales were up for a period BEFORE these Blood and Guts commercials started airing, by the time you see the sales fall, you're looking at sales in the rear-view mirror and wondering what these Madmen could possibly be thinking about with this....THEY LIVED stuff....
They are the dealer's best friend on trade-in values. You'll be sitting across from some Shark Sales Manager at a dealership and he'll bring up some Kelley Blue Book figure, right from their lowballing site and try to convince you that is what your car is worth. Don't believe it for a minute.
They actually make their potential customers think about DYING in a car crash. The possibility of DEATH is not something you want in your commercials...even it your product is better at avoiding it (unless you're Japanese and part Samurai in which case you might like it). A bunch of emergency personal looking over a completely mutilated Suburu and saying "They Lived" is very depressing. They lived, but were lobotomized and are now in a medically induced coma. These advertising people are clinically insane.
