    Boots are WH Smith's with a different product line. They are always horrible no matter where you go. And somehow really awkward to find the aisle for the the product you are looking for (this may be cos men's deodorant or whatever is often shoved into a forgotten part of the store and their signposting is shit. Also pisspoor narrow aisles. So when some wan is crouched to examine perfume, there's a jam building up waiting to get thru. Even when they stocked music and computer game tapes and I could reef them out of it with some deft shoplifting, there was something depressing about the stores.

    they just have to be major Tory donors.

    In case anyone isn't clear which organisation is responsible for this shambles, it's Boots. A chemist. Who also mix, measure out and dispense prescription medicines. i.e. things where getting the correct dose can be the difference between helpful and deadly. Be afraid. Be very, very afraid.

    I was in the Ryman for the first time last year and it's glorious. A genuine old-timey country / folk / bluegrass hall. The idea of Die Mensch Maschine doing their 3D gig there blows my mind.

    That does not compute. Does Nashville have good cycling or summat?

    Well, that's the second most fucked up music-related thing I've read today.

    The first is that Kraftwerk are playing the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. That's the original Grand Ole Opry, for you out-of-town folks.

    A few weeks earlier, they're playing Red Rocks. Kraftwerk....at Red Rocks.

    Aren’t all mattresses disposable? None of them last forever, certainly.

    When you order one, they say they’ll take it back within a certain time period but then it can’t be resold so they’ll donate it to somebody who needs it. I guess it ends up in the dump often. But then, most people are probably satisfied otherwise that company wouldn’t stay in business.

    I got my bed off the internet. But it didn’t come in a box. Two guys from Harrisburg delivered it in a truck. Apparently, they contract with a bunch of different online furniture vendors and figure out how to cobble together those deliveries to make it work somehow.

    Yeah - that story made me rather depressed. It was something I hadn't committed a lot of thought to.

    That was the case with most things designed to separate the comfortable from their disposable income before the internet was created, though the internet has facilitated previously undreamed of scale.

    The whole mattress-in-a-box landfill of mattresses should be here. It is always fascinating how many "internet entrepreneur" ideas are just a more efficient way to communicate something that destroys the environment and scales up waste.

    Clickagy and Parnas’s Fraud Guarantee shared a major investor, according to people familiar with the businesses. Clickagy used Parnas’s connections in GOP circles to attempt to land a contract with America First, the primary pro-Trump super PAC, according to people familiar with the firm.

    Clickagy’s chief executive, Harry Maugans, declined to comment.

    America First has said it is voluntarily cooperating with the investigation. A spokeswoman declined to comment on Clickagy.

    In recent days, investigators have interviewed the investor, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

    He told The Post that he bought $250,000 of shares in Fraud Guarantee in 2016. The investor said that he has received no returns on his payment and that it is not clear to him whether Fraud Guarantee was a real business.

    He said he was persuaded to invest in part because he said Parnas told him he could use his high-powered connections to pitch Trump on an idea the investor had to build a temple in Jerusalem on a platform high above the existing city.

    The investor, whose interactions with Parnas were first reported by the Wall Street Journal, said he believed the proposal could bring together Judaism, Christianity and Islam — and usher in peace to the Middle East.

    At a meeting in Florida, the investor showed Parnas a painting that he had commissioned of the temple, according to Artem Mirolevich, the painter, who was also present.

    “Parnas said that Trump was the type of person who might be interesting in building something like this,” Mirolevich said, noting that the investor had envisioned an 800-story structure built over the ancient city.

    Mirolevich said that after the meeting, he unsuccessfully tried to persuade his friend not to invest with Parnas. “I told him: ‘It’s in the company’s name. He’s telling you there will be fraud. It’s guaranteed,’ ” he said.

    But the investor decided to proceed because he wanted to show Trump his idea for the temple in Jerusalem, he and Mirolevich said.
