The first person to respond will then announce a "Topic" for discussion*. It can be as unclear, ambiguous and vague as you'd like it. Being of interest to the masses is a plus! Being informative is not necessary.


Remember the "Topic" you choose can be in any form. One or several words or phrase form. Please highlight your choice of topic in some manner.

* No politics or other ugly topics please.


Thanks to all for your contributions, large or small!

I get a lot of flack about cigs at work...they have a posted price of 5.79....but in tiny fine print underneath the name brand...it says 'when you buy 2 packs'. Otherwise, its full price. Just an example. Having to explain that a million times a shift....arrrgh~~~

Yeah the slick folks in suits never think about the PIA situations their underhanded advertising can create.
