The Daily Ping

We've only had four major designs over our 11 year history.

Multiple Copies

Paul is out getting a pedicure, so I’m filling in with the late-in-coming Ping…

With the sheer number of books, CDs, and movies that I have, I’ve done a pretty good job at buying the same item twice. But a few times I have purchased a book at a used book store only to get home and find out that I already had a copy (or, in one case, two copies) of it. And only one time have I purchased a CD that I had ordered from a different place earlier in the week. I later resold that CD on Half.com and didn’t lose any money on the deal. And as far as movies, I ordered the same DVD from two places only once. I gave the duplicate as a gift.

Do you have any items in your collections that you keep purchasing again and again, by accident?

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!
