Yeah, me too. That looks bonkers, Nick, you're gonna have a ball watching that!
Look, if we have to choose between stuffing our plane full of sugar cubes and making $$, stuffing it full of covid vaccine and making $$$$, or stuffing it with iPhones and making $$$$$$, there's really only so much we can do. We have a social and entrepreneurial duty and responsibility to society and humanity, and sugar cubes will just have to wait. After all, those iPhones won't deliver themselves.Short answer, covid. Long answer, lower selling items had a lower priority as supply lines got stretched thinner and thinner.
Bold of you to assume there was enough sugar to go around to make cubes in the first place. Production is way way down.Look, if we have to choose between stuffing our plane full of sugar cubes and making $$, stuffing it full of covid vaccine and making $$$$, or stuffing it with iPhones and making $$$$$$, there's really only so much we can do.

Since the beginning of Covid, there've been restrictions on economy shipments to and from the US (all of America, in fact) by...My employer. Express shipments still get flown there and back, economy only limited amounts and at higher than normal cost. Yet still people use it like crazy because a lot of our competitors don't have (enough of) their own planes and thus couldn't get goods across the Atlantic with so many airlines shut down. Anyway, some people started using boats or switched to Express services, and of course we got a whole lot of complaints from angry customers. Which, ok, fine, But shipping stuff EU>US was never especially cheap, and people complaining they now have to pay $250+ to get their package to the US I totally get...Until you start looking at what people are shipping.And who ships sugar by air?
The ms/mrs/mz/whatever thing is pretty weird, yeah. I mean, we all grew up in mostly patriarchal society, it makes sense that our culture and language are influenced by that, for good or for bad. Some things I think are less relevant or important, others are.I have some pet peeves and one of them is that online forms require titles. Men are Mr. or Master depending on age. Women are Miss, Ms. or Mrs. depending on their relationship to a man. Not cool. I especially don’t like seeing this in relation to my professional organization. I can love my husband very much and be a person in my own right.
Renewed my dues today and I could choose to just be me.
GoG used to have a ridiculous list of genders and pronoun choices - yes, including Attack Helicopter - but apparently they rolled it back to standard m/v/x a while ago because some complained that it made fun of people requesting their own pronouns.I like the ones where you can choose any title. I still get mail for "The Honorable [Celt Z]".
