It is. But if you got all your luggage, I'd count it as a win.

I would love to get in on this because there's no way these guys are going to stay afloat for very long, so you put up with being an AirBnB host for a while, then pocket the free money when they go broke.

They're assuming $150/night for 75% of the nights of the year for a bedroom in an occupied house. Those assumptions are generous, to say the least.

FUCK AMAZON.

I was just checking my cc bill and saw an item for $88 from Amazon Prime. I discovered that the "Free" shipping with my only order (total $47) obligated me to sign up for Amazon Prime with a $79 + tax annual fee. This was definitely not made clear.

FUCK YOU, AMAZON. FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU.

Delicious and all, but while my spirit has been united and it does perk me up slightly I have not yet evolved any new organs, limbs, or mutant powers, and my heart's wisdom still feels a little out of alignment. And I don't really need the increase in vibrations of love, I already, uh... have a device for that.

Delicious? With no sugar? Sugarless chocolate is seriously bitter.

I seem to remember getting some cacao beans in elementary school as part of a lesson on the Mayan people. I was taught they use to make a strong tea out of it. When I brought the beans home I told my mother I wanted to try making the tea. She was all "you won't like it" but I kept pestering her until she relented. I did not like it.
