Stopped in as i was driving by (in the market for a new ride)

They had a used car that caught my eye.  I Said I was interested in a test drive.

The sales rep flat out refused to show me the car, and insisted there was one on the lot that would be better suited to me.  (there was not a huge disparity between price, though the first i thought was a bit high) 

He then proceeded to take me to the dirtiest, higher mileage car on the lot, with cigarette ash in the back seat, a smell i couldn't define, and of all things....  pubic hair stuck to various places on the driver side doors.  

edit: the dirty car is 3 years old and selling for [nearly] as much as a new car of the same make and model 

re:edit  seems to be some confusion about what model they actually have on the lot

I can't say what their business model is, but they clearly do no want my business.

Not to worry +North End Subaru , you will not be getting it. 
Not now. Not ever.

the reason 'that new car smell' is sought after  is that the used car smell is pretty much pure bullshit.

And then what happened +Newegg ?
Perhaps it was routed though the BermudaTriangle,  or failed to take that left turn at Albuquerque.

The sorting hat couldn't determine if it should be a slytherin or ravenclaw.

Godspeed Tom Magliozzi.  
One last favor though...   when you get where you're going would you mind taking a look at my ride?  A lot of the passengers are sick (though that would probably take care of itself if they cleaned up after themselves).   And yes a lot of them are fighting with each other, despite there being plenty of room, about who is on who's side.    But that's not the problem either...   Lately it's been running hot, and I'm afraid by the time the temperature warning light comes on it will be too late to do anything about it.

ARGH!   Every time i try to contact +Newegg they issue a new support ticket (pushing their response time out another 7 days),  pretty soon i'll have more tickets than this guy's crappy venues.

WHAT DOES THE SPLEEN DO?
It primarily filters the blood… takes away the not so good erythrocytes (RBC). Now, why is this necessary? Well, seeing as your RBC’s dont have a nucleus, the cells usually have a lifespan of about 120 days. So you gotta filter them out to replace with new ones.
Can YOU live without the spleen?
You CAN live without it, the question is… Can it live without YOU? :)

Introduction
"I am a teller of stories, a weaver of dreams. I can dance, sing, and in the right weather I can stand on my head. I know seven words of Latin, I have a little magic, and a trick or two. I know the proper way to meet a Dragon, I can fight dirty but not fair, I once swallowed thirty oysters in a minute. I am not domestic, I am a luxury, and in that sense, necessary."
