The universal theory of free soda refills is one of those things that has been discussed in great depth at the theoretical level, but apparently theory has become reality at a Seattle-area McDonald’s I visited yesterday that is taking steps to lock down on serial refill thieves. Yup, it says right on the fountain that free refills are only offered on a single visit. See the full post »
If you have been reading the Mutineer Blog for awhile, you know how much I hate drunk driving. It’s the most idiotic, selfish, dangerous, preventable thing a person can do. That said, when I saw in the news that a man had plead guilty to DWI after crashing his motorized lazy boy chair into a parked car, I had to let out a little chuckle.
Prosecutors say Anderson’s blood alcohol content was 0.29, more than three times the legal limit, when he crashed into a parked vehicle in August 2008. He was not seriously injured.
Police said the chair was powered by a converted lawnmower and had a stereo and cup holders.
A motorized lazy boy with a stereo and cup holders? It’s clear that this guy’s motivation was simply to impress the ladies. And the moral of the story is that had he just called a cab, he probably would’ve been successful.
I have no idea WTF a Domo is, but it is apparently taking over 7-Eleven. This has Mutineer Director of Operations Jeff Dorenbush all worked up, so further investigation has been merited.
According to Creative Online, Domo takes over 7-Eleven: This Fall, 7-Eleven will undergo another Simpsons-like takeover—this time, however, by the Japanese character Domo, the brown blockhead with feet created by Japanese illustrator and director Tsuneo Goda, and who also serves as the mascot for Japanese TV station NHK.See the full post »
According to the LA Times, “The drugstore chain is remodeling. Stores will add liquor departments and more staples such as toilet paper and toothpaste, and will cut back on impulse items such as Chia Pets.”
I’m all for the addition of alcohol to the grand aisles of Walgreens, but I’m not sure I agree with the decision to make Chia Pets pay the price. Walgreens competitors are already in the alcohol game, and Walgreens actually used to sells alcohol in its stores, presumably stopping to boost its inventory of Chia Pets, wolf t-shirts, and “Big Mouth Billy Bass” that comes to life with the push of a button. Is Walgreens really willing to give all of this up to increase its alcohol inventory? Only time will tell…
The easy answer is EVERYWHERE. Our guys have been all over the place, culminating into a massive West Coast tour last week that caused a lapse in blog posting, though the team is back into the office and back to work on putting together the greatest issue of Mutineer Magazine EVER. We have some big stuff coming up that has required us to spread ourselves a little thin lately, but those balls are rolling and things are very exciting in our world. Stay TUNED! Next issue of Mutineer hits newsstands the last week of October!
These people are onto something! Did you see that killer video with beer bottle dominoes that we posted yesterday? Well, I dug deeper to try and figure out what “matematikrevy” means, and it somehow led me to this video about things a drunk person cannot say, which features the beer domino video combined with some creepy editing and other video stuff, though I find it hard to argue with the list…
According to an article, “Heavy drinking helps beat dementia” on the Daily Telegraph out of Australia, “Older Australians who indulge in up to 28 drinks a week stand a beter chance of warding off dementia than those who abstain, according to a new study.”
28 drinks a week? That is four a day, one with each meal (Fourthmeal available at Taco Bell), or all four at once if you like to party. I’m not sure if this study applies to older Americans, which could be concerning with how much old people in America love to drive huge steel battering ram cars. What if the dementia still appears, creating old, drunk people who decide to go for a drive? End of the world people!
