Fifty dollars for that beast?! Sure, it does not compare to $5 for a sixteen-foot tree (except price per pound), but that is crazy!

Google does not show any tree farms in my area. Home Depot charges $90 for a tree between 6 and 6.5 feet.

Your tree would last a couple of weeks longer than a commercial tree.

I haven't bought a farm tree as an adult until this year, so $50 is a shocking price to me. Growing up they'd be $5-$10 from a tree farm. I remember my aunt saying they go for a minimum of $100 in Manhattan, and that blew my mind.

I... don't like smart televisions
You get a security knows-bleed in you home and you concern is that it works as advertised?

It's going to be quiet around here through the end of the year, but to get into the spirit here's some John Prine
Does he still think about her? Why there was never really any doubt
Every time he lights a candle or blows a candle out
The scientific nature of the ordinary man
Is to go on out and do the best you can

I don't think that you know that I think you don't know
That old barometer goes crazy, baby, every time it starts to snow
You won't find me walking, 'round your part of town
Humidity built the Snowman, sunshine brought him down

This world is full of people, they never seem to fall
Somebody said they seen you, you hadn't changed at all
The fundamental story of the contemporary man
Is to walk away and someday understand
Humidity Built The Snowman

Without freedom of speech we wouldn't know who all the idiots are. -- anonymous poster


The best accident is no accident -- Elon Musk
