Here is a funny story about Amazon.

Earlier this week I ordered a new mouse and a new keyboard. The keyboard is currently delayed due to some shipping problems. I received the mouse a day ago and it has not been opened. Today I check Amazon and the mouse is discounted by 50%, so I tried going through support twice to get a partial refund. Amazon told me they don't do that or price match themselves.

Here is the funny bit and the part that should bother people. All electronic goods on Amazon have a 30 day return window, guaranteed from the date of arrival at your door. This means I can return the mouse any time within the next 30 days.

There is a refund trick you can use to save on situations such as this. When you put in a refund just say improper item description and you get a full refund with free shipping and tax money returned. I bought the mouse again for $35, and put in for refund of the same mouse at $74.19. I get $40 back so Amazon can send me the same mouse, not open it, then slap a return label on it.

So much for Amazon claiming they care about climate change.

First of all, a bazillion miles is non-existent. Second of all, the moon is a natural satellite of Earth. Lastly, there is nothing alive on the moon (as far as we know). That video made me (and probably most of you guys) really disappointing in humanity.
