$25 for a 3D scan of my body?
I think I am offended. I would have been happier if Amazon didn’t offer ANYTHING other than a cup or tea and a candy (like when you give blood).
As a committed and long-term AMZN investor I should, really, applaud Amazon’s apparent frugality. But, this makes Amazon look cheap and tawdry.
I thought about it. I realized that they wouldn’t have 3D scanning facility all over the place. And I was right on that. Just in New York City. Well I doubt whether I will track all the way down to NYC for this. But, if I were in NYC …
Does appear, alas, that it is very much a one-way deal, in the direction of Amazon.
I don’t think they give you access to your scan. I gather they (like Trump) makes you sign a NDA.
But, here is something that crossed my mind. Wouldn’t it be nice if they told you if they saw something untoward inside you. I guess they don’t. That would complicate matters too much.
I watched it. Both the 7+ hour ball-by-ball (albeit but for 35 minutes) and the 1-hour highlights. They were BOTH in the polished, professional format that we have come to expect and love from Willow TV.
I checked the schedule. All the other matches are still listed.
Warm up game 2 is also there, I didn’t have time to even click it open. Sorry.
If there was going to be a problem we probably wouldn’t have got this 1st match.
So, I am delighted.
Having to watch the World Cup on the idiotic Hotstar would have been PAINFUL. So, glad I have been spared that misery.
Landlocked and very sparsely populated Botswana is NOT poor by African standards. It makes good money from mining and tourism and has a growing economy. But, elephant hunting is LUCRATIVE money and will, ironically, boost tourism — i.e., and influx of RICH hunters with money to throw around.
Given that there is only so much news I can follow and process in a day, I had not paid much notice to snippets that I had seen about the Electoral College over the last few months. I was also under the belief that the chances of the Electoral College system being changed was pretty remote — especially under Trump.
But, the story from Nevada galvanised my interest and I took the time to read it. WOW. Steady on.
Yes, it is a long way from becoming a reality and it is bound to face enough legal challenges to stop it from being applicable in 2020. But, this sure is a start.
This is an initiative, much to my surprise (and delight) pre-dates the 2016 Trump election. Here is the list, prior to Nevada.
