I’ve had a life long fascination with toilets which I’ve blogged about several times in the past, including Toto’s awesome throne, a tricked out toilet, and my personal favorite toilet / bathroom in the world.
Today I learned something useful about toilet paper. I’ve clogged more than my fair share of toilets (c’mon – admit it – so have you). I now know that I need to check the brand of paper before I do my thing. No more Charmin for me. Thanks Joanne.
In today’s “direct mail databases are broken” category, the Huffington Post has a short piece titled “California Man Receives Credit Card Offer Addressed to ‘Palestinian Bomber’” Of course, the person who received this (Sami Habbas) has been a US citizen since the age of 3 and served in the US Army. When he called JP Morgan Chase about it, he was greeted with “Yes, Mr. Bomber, what can we do for you?” I guess the call center “judgment filter” is broken also.
