you should write a book about that.. oh, wait, someone already did. i heard about it somewhere.
isn't the "robot deliveryman" thing basically what amazon wants to do with drones?
meanwhile i've been searching for shoes for two weeks now. went to four different stores on sunday alone. can't find a blasted pair i like, the selection is shit everywhere, and the same shit to boot. i spent hours on zappos last night and can't decide what i want. it's as if the store retailers are saying "since online retailers don't have the overhead of stores, they can put all their money into warehousing their enormous stock. we can only compete, then, by severely limiting our available stock to a scant few selections. that will work, right?"
Life is short. STUNT IT!
