The people who complain about "paying a membership fee to shop" blow my fuckin mind and are usually shortsighted poor people.

Like dude you make that up in savings in a few trips. You come out wayyyyyy ahead its not even close.

They are the same people who pay their car insurance on a monthly basis. The simple math just scares them.

Enjoy your country club shopping experience.

Gotta keep those plebs out, amirite?

If poor people had higher IQs they'd all shop there its much cheaper in the long run.

Rich people shop there because they like to save money, its not really their fault.

I'd get much more use out of both of those things I suppose as I don't need some stupid bracelet to command respect. Although I am averse to paying for porn.

Seriously I'm jut poking fun at spending a few thousand bucks on a "status symbol to earn respect". I know at least one of these dudes makes fun of guns as "dick enlargers" so its a little hypocritical as a gun at least can be used for fun or to kill people.

I grew up in South Florida and like half the white people are jewish. I went to several dozen bar mitzvahs growing up.

Costco was an institution.

The only people dumb enough not to see it were poor people who can't think more than 2 weeks ahead. WAAAAA I have to pay 40 dollars NOW to save literally HUNDREDS of dollars on gas and groceries over the year WAAAAA.

There's some interesting research about how poor kids learn decision making and what's optimal for them,

This is what I was referring to but in a more over the top jokey way. Thank you for pointing it out.

My mom was a teacher and she said the saddest thing about her job was the number of kids who'd come to school with 200 dollar shoes with the latest iphone (6-7th graders) but be on free lunches and stealing everything that wasn't nailed down in the classroom like pencils.

What's the pizza like in the Japanese Costco? As I understand it, there is barely any cheese in Japan.

Its rice cake with eel for toppings and squid ink for sauce.

I'm not going to get into a whole 'how to cook' thing here but bro table salt is not sufficient replacement for proper seasoning.

If you're not salting your pasta water you're doing it wrong. Period.

You shouldn't tell people what to do and what to like. It makes you look arrogant. Definitely not in the Costco thread.
