We buy a generic toilet paper (Always Save). When we picked
at the store last week, the yellow wrapper had a little
stripe on it
that said "New and Improved!" I mentioned to my partner
that we needed to check the old packages to see by just how
much they "improved it". Well, they shrank each roll by
20% (350 sheets down to 280). What that means is now we
have to buy 5 packages to get the same amount of TP as 4
packages provided before. The price of a package is the
same, so that amounts to a 25% cost increase!!! And they
had the gall to stamp "New and Improved" on the package.
That is just pure evil. The "economists" don't factor in
shit like that when they calculate rates of inflation.
Unfortunately, the shit will eventually hit the fan, and
nobody will notice in time, that there isn't enough toilet
I reiterate: There is no fucking IT worker shortage. If
there were, I would have a job by now. The true shortage is
in intelligent Human Resource personnel....
Python is really cool. I am reimplementing my numttt data
structures to use dictionaries a little more. I may never
get this done, but it at least helps pass the time....
