    Reminded me of reading this article, re: Amazon trying to sell in India, specifically to the more rural locations. Some early challenges, bold made me die, will never think of the search icon the same.

    "To make its screen easier to understand, Amazon added icons for books or electronics or beauty products. When it figured out customers didn’t know the magnifying glass was a standard symbol for search—some were calling it the ping-pong paddle—it added pop-up descriptions and recommendations in Hindi."

    Fuck that. It’s far better to call out colors of ducks. Duck, duck, goose is obvious. Red duck, blue duck, green duck, yellow duck, green duck and then finally gray duck is much better disguised. Some states are just too basic.

    It would make more sense if you put the color descriptor as the 2nd word in this scenario

    I expect a reliably blue state like MN to be less concerned with pointing out the different colors of everyone and arbitrarily labeling one bad. I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.

    i originally thought this meant people from minnesota refer to ducks as ducks, refer to geese as ducks, and then some confusing thing about gray ducks

    Married, mother of three, Iowa Fan tailgated her ass off at a Minnesota game at the Metrodome like 10 years ago. She drunkenly wandered into the men’s restroom and started fucking some random guy. Both her and the dude got caught and summarily arrested for lewd conduct or whatever. Husband was a total cuck about it and blamed himself for not escorting her to the bathroom. Pretty sure she lost her job and ended up divorced

    Am I the only person that is absolutely abusing the Amazon Prime $1 digital reward for choosing No-Rush shipping?

    I get free premium movies for daaaaaysss and it usually ships only a day or two later than the usual 2-day shipping.

    Tijuana is further North than Montgomery Alabama (and Savannah, Georgia, parts of South Carolina, all of Florida, and just barely South of Dallas).

    I like looking that stuff up. Was recently looking up coordinates to figure out what the closest I've been to the equator is (Taichung, Taiwan, 24.1477 N narrowly edging out Puerto Iguazu, Argetina at 25.5972 S and Miami FL at 25.7617 N)

    I just learned that part of North Carolina is south of Columbia SC :shocked: (Cape Fear is at 33.8 N, Columbia is at 34). Seems crazy because we're dead middle of the state and NC sits generally on top of this state. Those circles curve a bit though I guess
