Sanding our assholes with 150 grit.

Someone at Amazon needs to get a clue (or maybe not)

I once put a copy of "Project Ako: Love and Robots" in my cart, but then removed it.  It's a pretty clean, light-hearted anime that's about as kid-friendly as uncut Japanese anime GETS with the exception of Hello Kitty.

Ever since then, when I got to Amazon's home page, the page is PLASTERED with recommendations for Hentai, which for the unenlightened is animated pornography, some of it pretty graphic.

What the FUCK?  I can't even go on Amazon now without anyone nearby thinking I'm some sort of pervert.

Well I'm not saying THAT but I sure don't buy porn from Amazon.

The point here is that some mom somewhere might put a copy of Yu-Gi-Oh or whatever in their cart for their 10 year old and suddenly be recommended a selection from Mat's collection, which he has highlighted above.

Not good for Amazon, I'd say.  They need to learn the difference between anime and hentai.

I espeically like how they specify "with zippers" in case you were concerned.

You also claim not to be coming back here, so why should we believe a word you say? :)  (Although you could get away with some sort of "but it's not ?off any more" semantic wrangling, I suppose.)

It only got two stars, though.

Two stars because of a bogus review - some moron claimed he put it on backwards and wants arrows pointing out the right way to wear it.

Oh god.... 

Are you serious? Did Joel write it?

lol...no, it's an old review...and basically the guy claims he passed out and someone downstairs heard him fall and rescued him.

Which isn't so funny in light of recent events.

"So, there's these two holes this side, kind of the same distance apart as my eyes, and none on the other side.  I'd better pay no attention to the obvios markings, then, and try to put it on in some random direction...  It doesn't fit!  THE DESIGNERS WERE MORONS!  I AM THE GOD OF INTERFACES, AND ALL HUMANITY SHALL KNEEL BEFORE MY WISDOM!"

Rip Joel's essay and change it to cover the hood on wrong. That would be fucking hilarious.

First you have to figure out how to turn your TiVo on.
