What does Amazon think you're doing?

Postby CarrieSnarf » Wed Aug 08, 2012 11:08 am

I love my "suggested products" on ebay and amazon this time of the year. I know its all automated, but I can't help but imagine a little man a desk putting together my suggested products and saying "What in holy fuck does this lady do?"

Today Ebay suggested: Combat boots, butterfly themed underwear and military parachutes.
Amazon: LED rope lights and motorcycle protection gear

Burning Man isn't about the stuff you see when you get there ....it's about the people that brought that stuff there

Multitool, yoga shorts, toy hand grenades, P-style, and a candy cane shaped glass pleasure wand.
Some sunshine, some dust, a little paint and a tutu. Yeah.

Not to shamelessly plug Amazon or anything, but the site kicks ass. I use them for everything I can.. even groceries.

I hope you all know about the totally free Amazon Prime trial membership that gives you free 2 days shipping on anything that Amazon fulfills. No money down.. just sign up for it.. and make sure to immediately go into your membership options and turn off auto-renewal so you aren't charged at the end of the month. It's a total life saver for the last minute stuff.

When your trial is over.. and if you're a bargain hunting cheapskate.. *cough*cough*.. simply make a new account and sign up for the trial all over again. You don't even need to change any vital info. Same as the previous one.

"Someone I know" has 12 different Amazon accounts.. one for each month.. :lol:

Actually Cryptofishist, (pushes glass up on nose) my parachute is vintage, and I got it way before it was cool.

Apparently I want lots and lots of blinky lights. (Which is true). Also, more fake fur, even though I haven't yet figured out what I'm doing with the fur I already have....
