    I love amazon and google. Facebook and Twitter blow ( to me ). It’s made my life immensely better. I don’t know what damage it does to others( I do a little bit) , but for me, two thumbs up 👍👍

    I'm with you, I HATE the lack of Privacy we get from Google, but the convenience is almost too hard to resist and Amazon - I'm placing an order this morning for some things I need (Specifically better socks for working in hot weather).

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone from Lowe’s to hd to hectors hardware and on and on, and still couldn’t find the thing I was looking for, now I order stuff and it’s here in two days. If you don’t need it right away, it’s hard to beat. Does it hurt businesses? Sure. But Bezos cracked the code on how to move shit around in this country. Now other businesses are clamoring to catch up

    Amazon has added years to my life by sparing me the hassle of searching for stuff in stores. Coming home empty handed after checking three or four stores is a thing of the past.

    Fuck yeah, I used to love going Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve just to watch everybody losing their minds. Now I just go to Amazon and do my shopping with a Jack and Coke in my hand and a bong full of weed, Nice and warm and cozy in the comfort of my own little house. Why waste time looking for a parking spot when I can just shop naked?

    Are you trying to say you’ve never walked into Best Buy naked with a jack and coke and a doob? Extra points if you got there riding a lawnmower 👍
