For sure I think you might like #51 instructure

I went to the site. Filled in some details (just so I'd get to see what they were selling).

Now I'm getting phone calls from Salt Lake City at 3 in the morning.

Thanks a Censored bunch.

I just went to a Radio Shack. Even their liquidation "Everything must go!" prices weren't that great. I'll just go on Amazon Sleepy

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Crocs should have died out years ago.

If I can't find what I need on Amazon or Chewy.com...I must not need it all that bad. All praise the Interwebz. Bowing

Blame it on Obama. Drinking Beverage

I recently had to replace a fuel transfer valve on my truck, which has 3 fuel tanks. I couldn't find it anywhere locally, and had to go to Amazon to get it. It's common as dirt on camping trucks and boats. I should have been able to buy it locally, but people only look at their online catalog and don't apply any sort of effort or initiative into making the sale.

I wonder how that translates into numbers of jobs lost. I would guess the impact is greater than the loss of coal mining jobs.

Anyone hear anything about this from Donald "Make America Great Again" Trump?

Yabut, jobs will be gained in picking, packing and distribution. Also web-design and maintenance jobs (except they're probably in India rather than Indiana).

Meanwhile...
The chart, I note, is using US stats. I'm not seeing the same trend over here where a lot of cultural activity centralises around the shopping centres (malls).

Which is lucky for people like me with no credit cards... if the trend continues, I'd be reduced to getting my 'food' from 7/11 or coming up with creative cockroach menus.

RE: Charts & Graphs
Amazon has it's own delivery service now. Sort of like Uber for merchandise. I have ordered, and received, items in the same day for no shipping cost. I used to be able to get pretty much anything in two days but now it's more likely that I will order something and have it the next day...delivered in a regular car by Amazon couriers.

Amazon has really upped its game to the point where other retailers have to offer similar services to compete with them.

I go to the grocery store because I like to be able to pick out fresh food myself, though I have used an online ordering service and picked up my groceries when I was sick and just didn't want to be out and about but that's about the only shopping I do any more in a brick and mortar store.
