Stamina Products Can Blow Me
February 11, 2014
I had a Stamina InTone Folding Recumbent Bike. I say had because a belt broke inside it about a month ago. I disassembled it to find the busted part and contacted the manufacturer for a replacement part. “Sure,” they said. “$13.99 covers the part, shipping, and handling and it will be to you in 7-13 days.” Being the fool that I am, I took them at their word. However, after 13 days had gone by without a new part, I began to worry. I tried to call, but they were out of the office, so I emailed. No response 4 days later, so I call.
Beware of Buses Bearing Gifts
May 3, 2011
The phrase used to be “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts", but I think the same can be applied to buses… more specifically MUNI buses. Maybe a better (more modern) version should be “Beware of buses bearing gifts” or simply “Screw MUNI”. If you wonder why I say this, obviously you’ve never visited San Francisco and relished the simple joy of riding MUNI. That bus system goes out of it’s way to find the best ways to inconvenience you. One might also think this is true of all mass transit and while it is true in some cases, MUNI has it down to an art form, a science even. I’m more than happy to explicate why I loveomniloathe the SF bus system.
Vitriol posts are an interesting thing.

Let me share a bit of history for those that don’t know me. When I was young, that is to say very, very young (IE up to about 2nd grade), I was a very angry child. I was what they call a “Roman candle”, the littlest spark would set me off into a huge storm of rage. By about 3rd grade I realized this was a problem (yes, my little 3rd grader mind actually worked on this kinda thing) and I spent a long time working to calm myself.
Hasteno is a Scam
August 19, 2009
I just want to preface this posting with the obvious: This is my personal investigation of the site. I could be wrong, though I don’t think I am. If you’ve got more information on this website, I’m all ears. Hateno.com. Is. A. Scam. I thought I’d make it really simple for everyone as to what point I’m trying to convey here. Hasteno is an attempt to be another one of those “Micro auction” sites like Swoopo (as has been previously covered, twice).
