Why is the name ‘Pitney Bowes’ never on lists like this? They deserve extinction more than anybody on this list.
Try being 6’6”. If it takes 12 hours or less to drive I drive.
By coincidence, Caesar was 50 when he crossed the Rubicon in January 49 B.C. (he was born in July 100 B.C.).
That happened in 2006. I have not flown since, except for flying First Class to Maui in 2007. BIG difference.
I think my legs suffered an incurable condition on that United flight. (I’m no spring chicken)
I like it when I am accidentally cerebral. Thanks!
3. Nike, and their top three competitors - all over rated.
Underarmour and Adidas kick ass.
I was on US Air flight where the Flight Attendant was putting ice into drinks with her bare hands, she had the sniffles too. I didn’t really care because had I seen her in a bar I would have made out with her.
It’s not the airline fault once the plane leaves the gate. I was listening to ATC on one flight and we had to wait on the tarmac because some fool filed incorrect flight plans.
The original Eddie Bauer went bankrupt and the name was bought by a new company, which is now going bankrupt. Most brands will continue on with new owners.
Just like Listerine, whiskey kills 99.99% of all germs on contact.
About the time it becomes necessary to pay some of the debt, to the fed are the tax payer.
I have 3 pairs in different colors. I am not sure about the quality of the knockoffs, but obviously the cheaper prices affected Crocs sales. I, too, was surprised to see the knockoffs on the market in such a short time.
Crocs can survive if they cut their prices in half. They have made their fortune, and I think they can survive with a lowered profit.
Eventually, I began to buy most books, CDs and DVDs from Amazon. I read a lot of nonfiction, and can find what I want easily online. Still, I will miss Borders. Even though I seldom go there, it was nice to browse and enjoy a cup of coffee. But, I could have run the place better. Books are sold pretty much at MSRP.
I'll also miss Eddie Bauer. I am 6'5" tall, and have bought a lot of clothes from them over the years because they carry tall sizes. I still wear a lot of EB clothes, but not as much as I used to. Their prices are sky-high, and now that J.C. Penney has tall clothes, I get a lot from them.
So, i guess I am sad to see some places close, even though I never shop there anymore.
Just duh wondering . . .
Did Caesar write down on his passport that he was born 100 B.C. ?
Kinda always wondered about that.
Normally a Roman was supposed to be at least 42 when he became consul, so some have argued that Caesar must have been born in 102 since he was consul for the first time in 59 B.C., but there may have been a rule that patricians could hold the office two years early.
