The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Such an anode

When Jay Tea gets the electric chair, they'll give him 9 volts:

Earlier, while shopping, I noticed that Energizer is selling pink batteries to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

This sounds like a fine, noble endeavor, and no one should criticize either organization for this program. But I still had two evil thoughts as I looked at the display:

  1. Was it accidental that a company that sells items in sizes rated AAA, AA, C, and D should support the fight against breast cancer?

  2. What kind of a statement is being made when the store I'm in only has the pink batteries in size AA?

For just a moment, I wished they'd bring back B batteries.
