Out of the Blue

Following the power cutting on and off with the recent storms, I decided it was finally time to replace my UPS, as its battery had reached the point where my machine would go to sleep after even slight power dips. I found a big 1500VA unit at Best Buy for $139, and while it turned out it was mismarked, they agreed to charge me that instead of the proper $209 since it was their mistake. Nice, right? We then stopped on our way home at Marshalls to see what sort of bargains they had there and I found a Le Creuset crock for holding spoons and such for all of $12.99, but the blue one I wanted had no price tag. I told them the price up front, but they insisted on a price check, and ended up charging me the $7.99 listed on a cheaper crock. So it seems yesterday I was surrounded by some sort of magic forty-something percent discount field... Too bad I wasn't in a position to buy some resalable commodity and profit wildly from this.

#3 is actually what they say. Glass is not a true solid, rather an amorphous solid. I learned that in science in 10th grade, and a year ago again in college. Also, a quick Google will confirm.

Glass is an amorphous solid, but it does not flow over time.
