Love these motherfucking things. They smell awesome. How come it took so long to invent them?

Feel free to add other product recommendations here.

My Random Product Endorsement for the week is the "Pit Mitt". It's a glove that is rated for 475 F. It's intended use is for pulling stuff off of barbecue grills, but I've been using it during glassblowing for things that require getting up close to intense heat but still need dexterity. It is fabulous.

I don't think that the appearance of this tide thread and the acid thread is a coincidence.

Lately, there has been a tide crime "wave" linked to drug trafficking. What's the street value of a pure uncut tide pod, bitches?

from ABC

"Authorities finally put an end to the sudsy spree, but with a retail price from $10 to $20 this household laundry staple has become a kind of currency of the streets. It can sell on the black market for half the price and with no serial number its impossible to track.

Tide is highly recognizable, its very difficult to trace and its easily resold, said Brad Garrett, former FBI special agent."

I'm not sure you understood my post, smirk.

I'll let Urban Dictionary clear things up:

The best. This word is very interesting. The important part of it is without THE, an entirely different meaning applies. My teacher is shit= bad teacher. My teacher is THE shit = greatest teacher.

example: My car is the SHIT.

Really Doc Z? Tide and Gain both clean very well, but Gain smells like sunshine and sparkles and angels singing under rainbows. Tide just smells okay. The tide pods are pretty nifty, though. I wish Gain would make them.

The Tide pods are a great reminder that, on the whole, consumers just like new stuff.

1. They cost more per load than using regular detergent

2. They shouldn't because they use less materials (water) to produce

3. They could theoretically make a Tide eyedropper based on how much concentrate you need diluted to wash cloths.

4. If they did that, they would charge even more.

It just amazes me how easy it is (for all of us) to fall victim to marketing, ads and packaging. As much as we complain about commercials and capitalism, we all just really, really like new stuff.

I agree Pee Jay.

I always imagine some marketing jackass laughing his ass off. "Hey, everything this month seems to be about chipotles. How do you say chipotle anyway? Oh who fucking cares. Let's slap one on top of our basic burger - I've already checked we can get them super-cheap dried from Juarez because of the drug war going on there, then reconstitute them in water - and then call it our Baja Mexicali Melt Burger Supremo! For an additional 3 cents in dried pepper crap, we can up the price of the basic burger by $.75! Who's with me? Get that little fucking dog on the phone to promote it. No, not the one with the spot on his eye, the littler one with the bulgy eyes. Oh, hey sugar tits! Where's my coffee??"

These two sticks are working fine - why the fuck would I need matches? And a Zippo? Just proof that people like new things. Just a fad.


Granted, pods should be cheaper, but they're also less of a pain in the ass. No measuring, no fabric softener, easy-peasy. My damn kid can do his own friggin' laundry now without his mom freaking out about him using too much detergent and having suds all over the place. Does convenience mean nothing anymore?

I like the pre-cut squares of tin foil at 3 times the price. Is it too hard to tear?

Have you ever seen the waste that leaves a single grocery store? How about a single strip mall? I'm not a tree-hugger, but when you see it and then read the story of the Gulf Coast that's been pretty well buried by who got eliminiated on Dancing with the Stars last night - well, if that doesn't make a single tear track down your cheek, I don't know what will.

Our culture of consumerism is out of control and the more I see of it the more I want to get some goats and start raising my own food. It's disturbing.

It always bugs me that most stores have adopted a policy of locking up their dumpsters.

"I don't want my garbage...but fuck you, you fucking hippies and poor people! You can't just have the things I'm throwing away. That's not how capitalism works. It's going straight to a landfill to rot, and you're committing a crime if you take any of it!"

I'm honestly surprised grocery stores haven't started trying to sell Dumpster Diving passes.

People "freecycle" (barf) at some places like Whole Foods, but yeah, your average big box has a huge compactor in the back, so you're not getting any of that stuff. For sure.

The sheer amount of it would make you sick. It boggles the mind when you think - this is just ONE store.

I thought they locked their dumpsters because if they didn't other people would throw stuff out there, and they would have to pay more money for the garbage truck to come more often.

Really don't get me wrong - you're welcome to your pods. I mean how hard was it for us to put dish detergent in, and I use the pods now.

I'm just observing how creative corporation are at changing things just enough to keep us interested.

I had to buy a new washing machine recently. We said, that's it...this is the moment we join the upper class and get a front loader with steam cleaning...blah, blah, blah.

We just happen to go to a local store instead of Best Buy. When we talked tot he sales guy we discovered that besides liking how the expensive Electrolux frontloader on a pedestal looks, the basic dial top loading Speed Queen was just fine and actually has a reputation for lasting forever.

It took a lot of self control, but we bought the Speed Queen. But it doesn't make us better people...deep down I still wish I had the front loader...it looked cool. I NEED A COOL WASHING MACHINE...in my basement...heh.

I hate my front loader. HATE IT WITH A PASSION. All the clothes come out all twisted together in a gigantic knot and I have to solve the puzzle before loading the dryer. Stuff gets lost between the drum and the rubber liner, and it's like touching a wet freshly dead mouse to pull the shit out to rewash it. You also can't open it in the middle to add a random sock.

I miss my Whirlpool large capacity top loader washing machine.

We have a front-loader that we bought a few years back, for pretty much the same reason - because I wanted to have a cool looking washer.

Everything you're reading here is right. It sucks. I hate it. We've had fix-it people out more than a few times and they're due again because the seal around the door is leaking.

In fact, last time the door itself was full of water. They had to take apart the door and empty it. That cleared up the mildew smell.

But Tide pods? They would never betray me as front-loaders have.

I don't understand how I escaped. I have a front loader and don't have any of the problems mentioned on this thread. We also got it on the cheap (someone was selling the set because they didn't like the color and had it only 6 months... idk!). We've had the set for 3 years or more now. We do leave the washer door open after use until it dries out to prevent mold. Maybe that's the trick?
