Another 50% off day
The biggest difference between Europe and the US?
Holidays in the US are marketing events.
European holidays are family events.
I guess the patriotic duty during holidays is to buy. And then to buy more. 25% off, 0% APR, etc. My favorite deal currently is the Lasik deal: 2 eyes for the price of one. And I thought eyes always come in pairs. I need to meet the marketing manager who came up with that idea. Much more brilliant are those fake pupils above that let you sleep at work or in class while others think you are wide awake. Too wide awake for my taste...
Well, let's move away from marketing today, honor Washington and Lincoln on this special day and remember Lincoln's quote:
""Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way."
