Why use Santa as an excuse? by [email protected]
I Googled quickly and didn't see anything. When I was little, my parents let me know that Santa only brings the candy in the stocking, presumably so I'd thank the right people for the presents under the tree - but maybe also to spare the post office my letters and avoid visits to Santa at...

I recently picked up a non-working 50" plasma TV using Craigslist. I brought it home, then researched the model #. After finding that this particular TV had a major habit of blowing up multi-hundred $ boards, I set it aside figuring I would just recycle it. The other day I decided to haul it...

Unscrupulous online merchants holding your money before shipping the product... by John Doe[_1_]
