Thank you! I just stopped by to post the same comment. It’s a pet peeve of mine. While it seems trivial, when I run into it in a store, I am tempted to take however many items it takes to make a complete cent’s worth up to the check out and insist they let me buy it for the price posted.
louieglutz – Sorry, but I live in the fly-over zone, and I sure as heck don’t like the idea of being run by the idiots who live here.

I don’t know about the other things, but I do know cat hairballs do cure walking barefoot in a room at night without first turning on the lights. Ew!
I know some stuff that won’t happen in November 2016, based on incredible lack of empathy this comment reveals. I couldn’t vote for such a man.
The US military tries to avoid this sort of thing, yet failed to do the right thing (not strike) when the Afghans called a strike on the location, which was known to be a hospital and for which the GPS location was known to the US military. The main difference between the US military and many others is we try to avoid this sort of “collateral damage” (i.e. killing of innocent people, especially children, doctors, patients in hospitals, people in places of worship, schools in session, etc.).
