The Lazy Random Friday Thread

Hello, everyone.

I decided to start the "Lazy Random Friday thread", a mishmash thread where, as long as it doesn't violate the A.net Terms of Service, it's free game.

To start: it's an absolutely beautiful Friday afternoon here in YYC: it's about 21C, there's some clouds, there's some sun, and Calgary plays Montreal tomorrow at McMahon. Go Stampeders.

The job search is going okay, but I'm still not catching any bites. At least I still have enough money to pay for rent, food and cigarettes.

In between Hurricane Irene, the east coast earthquake and NDP Leader Jack Layton dying (condolences to his family and NDP supporters), I stopped watching TV sans for The Price is Right at 11AM on KREM2 CBS Spokane, or the odd movie featuring Burt Lancaster, Jimmy Stewart or many of the "Golden Oldies" on TCM.

If you're in school or college, enjoy the last bit of summer (unless class has already started for you), and please remember: school toilets and cherry bombs do NOT mix. One of my friends learned that the hard way.

As it sits right now, I'm smoking a cigarette on the balcony, watching random YouTube videos while waiting for my laundry to finish. I will be glad when the next-door neighbor's kids go back to school in a couple weeks; it means no more screaming, water-gun fights or charging up and down the hallway at 7AM on Monday mornings when I'm trying to sleep.

It's hard to believe it's already August 26th, but then again, it's hard to believe a lot of things.

Anyways, please contribute to the thread by being as random as possible, as long as it doesn't break the rules and won't get either you or I banned.

Thank you,
Nik

Illegal wood? What defines 'illegal wood'?

Today is my school's big rivalry football game, which we lost every year until 2009 (from 2000 at least; we'd won it before that) and are on track to probably lose again. Just sayin'.

And now a few songs stuck in my head (not complaing, mind you):

Shouldn't it be colder if you're in the northern part of the country? Oh wait, you guys are all backwards down under.

Here is a random question:
What if you walk into a store, steal $20 worth of products. Then come back, return the products and the store gives you a refund. Then you purchase products at that store for $20. Does the store make a loss or a profit from this? My friend and I are questioning this and can't come to a conclusion. Note that I would never actually try this since it is stealing.

Oh and the weather in Minnesota is nice like always.

I think a loss:

$20 worth of stock is taken then
$20 is loss again due to refund so = -$40
you then spend $20

Total loss = $20

FYI pretty silly for the shop to give refund without reciept! Dont know what laws apply in US of A, but in AU shops dont have to refund without proof of purchase to prevent this exact situation!

Interesting. What if you did the same thing but this time you spent $40 at the store. Would it all equal out or would someone make a loss/profit?

It doesn't matter - whatever you stole from the store is the loss they take. The product that they have (either by paying you for it back [returning it] or just selling it to anybody else) is the same profit regardless. The only loss they incur is what you stole.

Doesn't matter if you spend $40 - somebody else would have spent the other $20 if you hadn't, so you aren't 'helping' them out any more.

Now, of course there are a finite number of people and a finite number of products to sell, so in reality saying "somebody else would have spent the other $20" isn't necessarily the case. However, due to the number of customers a store typically has, we can treat it to be an absolute that another person would buy the product.

In short - if you steal $20 of goods, it does not matter how much you buy back from the, return to them, or whatever - they are still out that $20 when all is said and done after the returns and purchases.

It's a loss like ALTF4 and joffie said. You steal the goods, meaning a $20 "shrink" (loss) in product, you return 'em, and they give you $20...if they don't catch and charge you for theft.

Speaking of theft, I watched Heat with Al Pacino and Robert De Niro today. I can't believe they're both either approaching or in their 70s. Then again, I find it hard to believe Bob Barker is in his mid-80s and isn't pushing daisies yet.

Now, your opinion: do you think Drew Carey is suited for The Price is Right? I think he is. He brings life to the show. That's just me.
