Those dang Sunday ads!!!

13 posts in this topic

After reading the Sunday paper, I have a vent to the advertising geniuses (print ads). Who is the knucklehead who thought of the varying width pages, 1/4 pages, etc. It is a major league hassle to read-turn pages on these ads! This has been driving me nuts for months!!!! Thanks for hearing me out!

It's a marketing method used to ensure that each piece is handled. If it wasn't for the supplements, there wouldn't be much reason for the local fishwrap to be delivered on Sunday. Newspapers make a fraction of a cent for each.

I've got news for them, I don't read them, they make me too upset. Hopefully, others feel the same way and they change back to the old way!

I didn't realize they still print newspapers. I only read it online these days. No flaps to deal with there.

Can you wrap your leftovers from fish cleaning online??? winkconfusedconfusedlaugh

I only read papers online and get the Sunday one just to thumb through the ads so it doesn't really bother me.

Those flaps are a pain from the production of the paper to the carrier and readers. Pressmen hate those flaps because they cause another issue in printing. Carriers hate them because they get in the way of assembly. It's just another way to get an advertiser to buy into it...hence revenue.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.

    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
