Obviously they've spent a lot more time thinking about it than we have.  There's probably a well understood formula for figuring out the number of people who are brand loyal vs. the number of people whose brand loyalty can be switched vs. the number of people that will buy whatever's cheapest vs. the number of nonloyal customers whose inertia can be directed towards a new brand for a while, etc. etc.

As for me, I'll pay extra for products that were tested on animal rights activists.

Lowe's Foods in NC does the green points thing.

 

Sadly their food is below quality so we only shop there for something in a package.

Why are you beating up Tigger?

Heh, we could go somewhere with this. (Or we could just have a nice reading of the classic "Pooh Goes Apeshit")

Ah yes, I truly enjoyed 'Christopher Robin acquires an AK-47'.

Tigger-rific!

 

I don't know how many of you have small children in the house, but because I do, I'm pointing this out...

 

These days, Christopher Robin has largely been replaced... by a little girl named Darby.  "My Friends Tigger & Pooh" (episodes shown daily on The Disney Channel(tm) ) has modern, near-3D animation.  Tigger, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, and Rabbit are still there, but now there's a heffalump, a porcupine, and a few other "new" characters.

 

So if Christopher Robin acquires an AK-47, his first target might be little Darby.  "Gimme my damn show back!"

Disney - whoring out your childhood since 1923.

This is should be apparent to anyone who has looked for a copy of an older Disney DVD only to find out that it's out of print until the 25th/30th/50th anniversary edition comes out in a few years. Whores.

Darby seems ok to me. At the very least, she isn't trying to teach children how to speak Spanish.

The very best thing on the Disney Channel right now is "Phineas and Ferb."
I'd watch it even if I didn't have kids (and considering how anti-TV and anti-Disney I normally am, that's saying a *lot*). The characters are well developed, the humor is fast-paced, substantial, and multi-layered, and the songwriting is totally on-point.

I wasn't surprised to hear that its creators credit Tex Avery as their inspiration.

My kids watch Tom & Jerry on Cartoon Network and I also obtained copies of every episode of T&J ever. It's their favorite show by far. I often laugh at them. When you start thinking about each frame having to be hand-drawn and painted, it pretty amazing.

Now THIS is a damn good point!  My daughter's also hooked on Dora The Explorer, so I know what you mean.  The other thing that irritates me about Dora is that the adults in her life seem completely unable to function until Dora helps them through life, with their jobs, etc.

 

And the repetition... "bridge, nut farm, Dora's house!  Bridge, nut farm, Dora's house!" is enough to drive ME to the "nut farm."

Looking to buy (maybe) --

Those of you who have been following my oil burner adventure in the Home Handyman room already know that the 40 year old furnace in our home (which my wife has affectionately named "Old Smokey") could be well served by a burner replacement.

If anyone in the greater Uncensoredland area knows of anyone removing a "lightly used" oil burner from service, if it's at the right price I might be interested in purchasing it for a retrofit. (I'm not looking to replace one really-old burner with another, but rather a burner that's just a few years old that was taken out of service because the house was switched to forced air heat or a different fuel.)

Long shot, I know, but something to keep eyes open for. (And I can search eBay myself, so there's no need to post "helpful" links there, thanks)
