It's the blue eyes, for sure. The Spice is life.

Xbox one is coming out. I like gaming and whatnot, by I can't even begin to understand the fanaticism involved with serious "gamers." Those people could have pre-ordered on Amazon for the same price, cheaper because no tax, gotten it 2 days after release, and not had to do any waiting.

This guy never received the memo on the dangers of using the phone / phones while driving. Can you guess how many phones he has? I counted at least 16 handsets.

No kidding -- at first glance I was trying to figure out if it was a chameleon or something, maybe some bug that's really good at blending in.

Many stores-and even some manufacturers, such as Apple-hire shills to camp out.

I believe it. Half the marketing game is deception. Black friday is practically one big bait and switch. I know they even raise prices on a lot of things at some stores.

Just a silly question.... If he is so well disguised up there, is there anything (but the hand of fortune) preventing him from being blown out of that tree by another hunter?
I've heard that some hunters have been known to shoot at movement or (god forbid) sounds.
Seems to me that this like walking across a freeway while wearing cammo.
Perhaps there are regulations preventing rifle and bow hunting in the same area.

fake. It's impossible for a kid to be in there, that's a life size sticker. There is probably four inches at the most between the shelf and the door. Otherwide, it would be too hard for people to reach the milk if you consider how wide the base of the cooler is.
