Another truck that has a mural of itself that I see once in a while.

Now, tax avoidance is a problem for a lot of governments and diseases are still a problem. What if the World Health Organization or CDC named diseases after egregious tax avoiders? “Accenture flu” or “Google pox.” Antibiotic-resistant Verizon fever.
If you want people to stop associating you with something terrible, then you can eradicate the disease.
An idea for a really disruptive used car dealership.
He’s eating the popsicle mold, not the popsicle.
I can only find a couple of brief scholarly references to Adventures in Babysitting. It seems like there’s a lot of territory here that’s basically been totally unexplored.
The person sitting next to you on a flight starts eating hot dogs, straight from the package, just staring at the seat back in front of him. And when he’s done with them, he pulls out another package.
