    He should probably axe someone for help with that word.

    @The Cat and Ape: just watch Cowspiracy. Or visit the website, it has links to all the documentation you’re asking for.

    If she had put the short fork on the outside, he would have grabbed it for his salad. Don’t blame Earl for your own sloppy table setting Opal…

    Fun fact: “Daisy Bell” was composed by Harry Dacre in 1892. In 1961, the IBM 7094 became the first computer to sing, singing the song Daisy Bell. It was the inspiration for the famous scene in 2001 a space odyssey.

    When I worked at the bakery department of a supermarket we had the same problem with white bread and whole wheat bread. About three hours before closing time (sometimes even sooner) we would run completely out of whole wheat bread and we would only have nine varieties of white bread in stock. Apparently the amounts in which both kinds of bread were ordered by the computer was based on statistical sale numbers. But those numbers only look at your actual sales and not at the demand, i.e. what you could have sold if you would have had it in stock. You’d think that with modern software (big data and such) they’d be able to change that. But to my amazement when I go to a supermarket nowadays (twenty years later) the situation is exactly the same. If I go shopping after five o’ clock I can choose from nine varieties of white bread but the whole wheat bread is completely sold out.
    It’s probably the same with clothes, the ‘popular’ sizes (average person sizes) are sold out first (within a few days) and then the stores spend weeks or even months selling the other sizes at discount prices. So in the end all sizes that were ordered are sold so statistically speaking there is no reason to change the amounts in the next order.
    A smart purchase program would look at the speed at which certain size clothes (or other items) are being sold and order more of those items that are sold out quickly and less of those that are only sold after a long time at a huge discount. But apparently they have yet to come up with such an algorithm.

    My grandma might remember those days, sadly I can’t ask her since she died twelve years ago at the age of 95. But my parents (both in their early seventies) have confirmed that they’ve never bought one-size-fits-all pants in their lives.

    Fergus already drove the car to the mall, so I guess it’s Mels turn to push the cart.

    I guess now we know why the garbage bin was invented…

    And there is the fact that he is a goat. I’m not intimately familiar with the American constitution but I’m pretty sure that the president has to be a human…

    He bought the eggs at a supermarket called “Albert Heijn” so “Dan” wouldn’t make any sense. It could have been Lidl, Aldi, Spar, Dirk, Jumbo, Hoogvliet or Deen if he had bought the eggs somewhere else.
