Quote of the Day - December 2, 2006

The Earth Kingdom has fallen.

- last line of Season 2 of Avatar: The Last Airbender


I was browsing on today when I noticed a button that said "Get this item for FREE, click here for details." So I clicked for details. Basically, if I signed up for Amazon Prime ($79? I know I don't buy that much stuff each year, unless shipping costs are way up), I would get the item free with free shipping. In order to close the offer, you could click a link that said "No thanks, I'd rather not have free stuff." It reminded me of the Geico ad where the Gecko says, "No thanks, I'm so rich, I think I'll keep my seat." It's a pretty blatant "you're an idiot if you don't take this offer" kind of move. How could you decline free stuff? It's free! And did we mention it's free? To which I say, TANSTAAFL, suckers. Offer DECLINED!
