I will say, as a pesto nerd, that the jumbo bottle of pesto they sell at Costco is awesome. Great price, great quality.

Can one of you active Costco goons hook me up with a quick price quote for 4 tires? Website won't allow non-Costco proles like myself to get prices on certain items.

I tried buying a car through Costco, the prices were okay but not great. I ended up going the traditional route of having a friend of a friend hook me up at the dealership. Probably wouldn't attempt again.

That's par for the course when you do DC and warehouse work though, the fact that I had to get up at 3am to deliver paper products to three different Costco stores 90 miles apart by 6:30am doesn't mean they're a selfish evil company, just means that a lot of stuff needs to happen 24/7.

Oh I wasn't saying they are an evil company or anything, employees are treated pretty well, especially for retail but I just hate having to wake up so early. :firstworldproblems:

I have a giant thing of crushed red pepper I got at Costco when I first got a college apartment in 2006. It is a decade later and it still isn't finished despite how much crushed red pepper I eat. The pepper is stale and not as flavorful. Still I refuse to relent. If I die before I complete this task, pour the rest of it in my dead mouth and bury me like the failure I am.

They've changed their pesto several times over the past 15+ years, it used to be amazingly good with lot of pine nuts and basil, now it's more on the cheesy side and more cheap filler stuff so it's not as good. Still decent buy though.

I used Costco as a baseline and also a way to not have pushy salesmen during my test drives. In the end I got a dealer to match another dealers internet pricing though and it was about $2000 less than the Costco price.

Price Club and Costco merged in, what, '90 or so? Before that, they were two separate entities that felt exactly the same when you were inside. I know there was a Price Club near me in ~'86, and even then it was always packed.

I got my car through Costco's Auto Program, and it was a great experience. I've never had to shop for a new car before, but since I already knew what I wanted (Honda Fit), they took all the stress out of it. They sent me to a dealer (unfortunately it wasn't the closest one), I got close to the wholesale price, and the only thing we had to haggle about was the trade-in value for my old car. In the end, I got exactly what I expected for it, after they initially tried to lowball me. But I was treated much better than I expected to be at the dealership, and it was quick and painless. I'd recommend it to anyone, especially if you already know what you want.

When we first moved into our house 4 years ago we had a lot of stray and feral cats running around pissing, making GBS threads and killing lots of birds and lizards (you know, the natural and native wildlife). We first got a trap from the county and caught 3 ferals the first week. We then just bought our own cat trap and caught, total, 17 (That's a one with a seven after it) in a three month period. We have a neighbor two houses down that we call the 'crazy cat lady', you know the type, unkempt, probably-hoarder as seen by all the poo poo under her carport who just *hates* us for doing that, even though at the time we had our own cat that was indoors and not loving up nature.
One time we caught this sweet little kitten that we ended up giving to our other neighbors down the road, they named her 'Sugar'. One time she escaped the house and they were looking for her, told us about it and hung some Lost Cat flyers around with a picture. The next day we got a text from them saying they found her, she was fine and everything was gravy. When I got the mail there was one of their flyers stuffed in our mailbox with a very serial-killer like crookedly-written 'CAT KILLER' along the bottom of the flyer. lmao @ crazy cat lady

Anyway yeah feeding feral cats is probably doing untold amounts of ecological damage so if you are cool with that and also don't give a poo poo about anyone else around you then keep on feeding them. Just know that you are doing far, far more damage that you realize.

I didn't know feeding hungry domestic animals was so controversial

1) I have had the same three cats coming to my home for years. I am not attracting any new ones.

2) I've trapped every one of them, paid to get them fixed, and released them

3) one of them had a neurological disorder where he walked like he was drunk all of the time. Could barely cross the street. I trapped him and got him a permanent home. He would have been hit by a car or raccoon food a week later.

4) My neighbors love me and my loud rap music

What controversy? Feral cats are a nuisance at best (cat poo poo in your garden) and ecological disasters at worst (rip native bird populations). Domesticated cats should be inside with people, on their laps and jumping on their keyboards demanding attention, not out getting hit by cars and getting trapped by angry neighbors like me when they wander into my yard.

Like yeah do what you are going to do and say whatever you want to say to yourself to make yourself feel good about it but a feral cat is an invasive pest.

I looked to see if Costco sold cat traps and this is what I've found:

I looked to see if Costco sold cat traps and this is what I've found:


From what I have read, even if I brought them to a shelter to have them euthanized, then other cats will just "take their place" since they are territorial.

So anyway I leave food out so they can come to me and I can trap them to get them fixed and get their shots and all that good stuff; plus to look for new ones. Since it's in my backyard, I have a motion camera (for security anyway) and I check every once in a while if a new cat shows up. It's the same 3 cats.

Once it was a different cat (the disabled one) that I got a home. One other time it was a cat that was skin and bones. Obviously dumped by the previous owner or lost and not sought. This was solidified by the fact that when I released him, he rubbed up against my leg instead of running away like they usually do. Long story short he absolutely was an abandoned house cat, and my mother-in-law took him in and he's an amazing pet now. So two off the street, and the 3 "regulars" aren't reproducing on the account of me having paid to get their nuts cut off.

The neighbors do not give a poo poo (none have said anything to me) most likely because you never see the cats during the day (they only come at like 2am) and they don't piss or poo poo anywhere that I have seen. So I don't even think my neighbor's know they exist.

Before I started feeding them, they'd go through people's garbage, so they aren't going anywhere when the Costco cat food train stops.

If the 3 were not feral, I'd find them homes, but since idiots don't fix their pets and let them roam the streets, nothing is going to change. Especially with the "keeping them cooped up in the house all day is abuse!!" types.
