    anti-social and I prefer not to have to go out. The added benefit is, often I find things much cheaper than in the store. Some places already charge sales tax. I'm used to it.

    I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

      of both worlds; I'll do my comparison shopping online, figuring out the item I need and who has the best price, then let price and availability determine if I'm going to buy locally or go to the store. Pretty much what I'm doing now with our next TV; that way I can go to the store with a general idea of what I want, and I don't have to worry about some salesman selling me what I don't need.
