What wouldn’t you buy online?

Now that we’re in the final stages of the holiday season, I’ve found I can rest easy thanks to buying all but one of my Christmas gifts online. And, yes, you can buy a lot of stuff online – everything from food and groceries (Webvan) to cars (Greenlight).

Online car sales, though, haven’t been that stellar. It seems like buying a car online would be rather difficult because, well, you can’t test drive it. But if you know exactly what you want it could come in handy.

The question up top remains, though. Are there any things you wouldn’t buy online? I still think I wouldn’t buy clothing online. Except for things from our Ping store, of course. -pm

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
