The Treat Receipts are now back at Starbucks where a morning purchase unlocks any iced grande drink for $2.50 in the afternoon. But there’s a change to the actual Treat Receipt that makes them simultaneously more discrete and less discreet. The new Treat Receipts are now their own separate paper receipts. When you make your […]
I can no longer find this rechargeable flashlight/nightlight combo at Costco anymore. The Costco ones were Eco-i-lite branded, but now they’re sold as Ivation on Amazon. Over the years, I’ve owned two sets of these lights. The original set was a goldish color, and the second set was silver. Now they’re white. Well, that’s a […]
So the red color of the Dromida Ominus quadcopter is a few bucks cheaper than the green, blue, and yellow. I’m okay with red. Lots of positive reviews on Amazon.
This has got to be a sign. Not sure of what though. Is SkyNet active? Is artificial intelligence at play? Is it my subconscious speaking to me? Or is it just a plain mistake that Amazon delivered a box of parts for a Dromida UAV drone? No, we didn’t order the parts. The shipping label […]

Convenient, fast, easy cleanup, kinda fun, […]
Wait, what? Spoon University says that a “Pineapple Juice” is Hawaiian slang for a “sun shower.” I sorta guessed what a sun shower is which is pretty much any day in Hawaii where you could see sunshine while still being rained on. But pineapple juice? I’ve never ever heard that phrase around here as related […]
Emoji is not just to sway NBA free agents or to remind everyone that you’re the Greatest of All Time. You can now emoji-fy links using linkmoji. Like this is www.pulpconnection.net in emoji form. http://????????.ws/????????????????????????????? Unfortunately pasting the linkmoji into a blog post doesn’t work. The above link should look like this.
Next week Wednesday, July 15, 2015, is Amazon Prime Day supposedly with more deals than Black Friday. Open only to Prime members, you are obliged to check it out just in case you do spot a spectacular bargain. I have low expectations of finding anything that I really need but you just never know. If […]
Seemingly, no matter where you go a Dew is a Dew is a Dew. Even in China, I knew this drink was a Mountain Dew (even with the hyper-neon bottle).
Hmmm, will Nike tackle the business casual market, making sneakers match the fashion of khaki pants?
