as you may have seen, ToysRus declared bankruptcy.
unsure on whether or not they are taking their own gift cards for payments now.
those probably rank well below debt holders

good luck

You can't make this stuff up:

Police Search For ‘Mad Pooper’ Who Dumps And Runs

Police are searching for a woman who has been seen repeatedly defecating in a neighborhood while out running.

Cathy Budde says her kids saw the woman mid-squat and came running back in the house to tell her.

“They are like, ‘There’s a lady taking a poop!’ So I come outside, and I’m like … ‘are you serious?'” Budde said to the runner. “‘Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids?!’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, sorry!'”

Pet parrot uses voice-controlled gadget to place order with Amazon

WHO’S a clever boy? Buddy, the parrot is! The African grey managed to place an order online by using an Amazon Echo smart speaker — aka Alexa.

BUDDY the parrot showed he’s a pretty clever boy by mimicking his owner to go shopping via Amazon’s Alexa voice-controlled system.

Shocked owner Corienne Pretorius could not work out how she had requested a $16 set of gift boxes until she realised her African grey had bought them.

It's not just parrots anymore. Your assistant can be activated without you even knowing:

Security researchers in China have invented a clever way of activating voice recognition systems without speaking a word. By using high frequencies inaudible to humans but which register on electronic microphones, they were able to issue commands to every major “intelligent assistant” that were silent to every listener but the target device.

People spend more time sitting on the toilet each week than exercising, study finds

People in the UK spend more time sitting on the toilet every week than exercising, a study has found.

Adults clock up an average of three hours and nine minutes on their loos every week - but spend just 90 minutes being active.

I screwed up the son's lunch this morning (he's in HS).
told him I'd bring him a nice lunch later and he's like cool.
show up at school with his lunchbag and inside is a QPwChz from mcd's.
I casually mention I might be early and the sammich' might be cold b4 he eats it.
Lady at desk tells me it is a rule that all outside food from fast food restaurants have to be eaten in the deans office.
wtf !!
I haven't a clue what they could be thinking when a parent brings a hot lunch for their kid but this is utterly ridiculous. If they make him go to the deans office to eat, they won't like our conversation tomorrow morning at school.
Should mention our HS has no metal detectors, have never seen one drug sniffing dog in school nor an armed officer...but a young man's lunch from mcd's is going to set the place on fire.

What a f'd up bunch of rules our society has in place :evil:

I'm surprised they even allowed even allowed something from Mickey Ds on the school grounds or that they didn't arrest you for child abuse.

Food is murder or something.

Far more people die prematurely every year in this country from diet-caused diseases than from smoking cigarettes. More than ten times! Yet giving your child a cigarette is illegal while artery-clogging fast food is just fine.

Same here. They say it isn't fair to the other kids.
Now they are trying to do away with the grade school honor roll. They are afraid that it makes some kids feel stupid because they don't make it. :roll:
