Just bought something in Costco last week. Reading the packaging revealed to me that they now have a Costco in Iceland!

Of all places why would they pick Iceland with a population of under 400,000 as a place to expand into?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I don’t know what @Something Fishy’s shoe size has to do with this, but a google search seems to indicate that they got almost a quarter of the population to sign up for membership.

1. Does his family live there too? I would guess Costco targets families as their potential clients. Not individuals, no matter their shoe size.
2. You mean to say Costco corporate has someone lurking ‘round here in order to figure out their next profitable location?

Do you at least find the articles interesting, or only the fact that I tend to post Bloomberg.com articles?

I enjoy them. Just get a kick out of the fact that you are always posting bloomberg articles. I feel like last couple months has seen an uptick though

I guess if WSJ or NYT were my go-to sites, I might have posted some from there. Might also be the fact that reading Bloomberg.com articles for free on any device is very simple.

Spent over an hour on the phone today with NYS Department of Taxation trying to figure out some discrepancies on my account. Finally when I insisted on talking to a supervisor everything was sorted and explained to my satisfaction in less than 10 minutes. Got a call back from same supervisor a couple of hours later telling me that he looked further into my account after our conversation and found a couple of hundred dollars that were owed to me, and were unaccounted for. Unfortunately they can't EFT it, so I'll have to wait for the check.

Family was talking about measles outbreak, and various family names that don’t vaccinate were mentioned. So my son asked “isn’t there a vaccine for the anti-vax virus?”

See my edit above. That answer was implied in his rhetorical question.

Will also add that this was following a discussion of the fact that these people shouldn’t be claiming religious exemptions, as those might only apply to some Amish and “witnesses”. Our religion probably says that one must vaccinate.

+1. I wonder what the heter is for claiming that you hold religious beliefs other than Judaism.

What's wrong with ונשמרתם... as their beliefs?

Unless religious exemption is only for the philosophical argument of no medical intervention.
