Any of you “Groupon” members yet?

There’s no advertising on this site, nor plans for it.

(The fact that is absolute crap at managing the stuff has nothing to do with it!)

BUT! Groupon is a crazily growing new web company. And given the kinds of deals they’re sending me, it’s easy to see why.

They sent an offer for $20 certificates at what seems a very nice Thai place. Here’s their menu.

The price for $20 worth? Nine bucks. Each. So I bought three, we may feast this weekend.

That would be a lengthy drive for “mountainbear”. But they tailor their offers to your area.

Today’s offer: $20 certificates for $10 at a very nice regional winery.

The offers are heavy on food, fun, leisure. But they’re terrific offers and there’s no obligations. I’m enjoying them and highly recommend this service.

(Full disclosure: pasting the following URL to sign up does earn me a sawbuck of credit.)

Okay, enough of that. Most of you are probably members anyway.

Back to the rad issues. It’s an ugly day for them, isn’t it?

I've accepted that all of you are socially superior to me. But no pretending that any of you are rational.

    Bummer, no Miang Kum. That’s my go/no-go test for Thai restaurants.

    Yeah, my wife and I both are members. We travel to Seattle a lot so we get both Seattle and Boise notifications. We’ve used it a few times. I’ve learned you really have to pay attention to the small print before you buy something. However, you get a 24 grace period to refund your money as long as you haven’t printed out the coupon. That seem fair.

    We also have joined Living Social.

    Actually, there are Google ads at the top of each individual post on your site when viewed with an iPod Touch. Oddly enough, they don’t appear when viewed on an iPad or laptop.

    Also, I appreciate the time you have taken to explain the nuclear side of things going on in Japan. Thank you for that.

      Noooooo! I hate Google!

      Dogpile is a man’s best friend.

      And thank you for thanking me! Given the scope of my social life, I think this means we’re now going steady.

        I hate Google as well. Used to use HotBot…

        Hmmm… not without you handing over your ID bracelet or class ring. 🙂

        “You’d accept that from someone who makes Sheldon Cooper seem like a social butterfly?”

        You do realize you asked that question of someone who is reading blog posts about radiation for recreation, don’t you?

          I feel about as sure as Sheldon would be, in pondering that question. “Insufficient data to model trajectory of conversation! Must…consult…Leonard…”
