The Back Burner: Things we didn't post this week

A big thank you to everybody for filling our tips at crunchgear dot com inbox with wonderful, unique, and newsworthy items. Here are five that we just couldn’t get to this week.

Subject: Hy friend

I ‘m tony a live in Brazil. I show oportunty make money. Not need invest acess: This second opportunity pay to you $10, 00 when your friend joins and receives their first check payment! Access: Sorry my inglish is very so so!

CG Responds:

Tony, don’t be so hard on yourself — your inbliush is great! I’m sorry but can we run over how the money is made again? So I don’t need to invest but this second opportunity will pay me $10 when my friend joins and receives his first check payment? How come that jerk gets paid before I do? I don’t even like that a-hole. Is there any way we could restructure this so that I get paid first and he gets a bill from me? You’re the big oportunty guy so I don’t want to question your judgment. I’m just asking, is all.

Subject: Requesting Menu i

Dear CM Carmichael,

Thanks for your recent inquiry to CrunchGear’s exclusive, trendy new restaurant Croonch. We’ve been busily working throughout the holiday season to make sure that Croonch is open for business by the beginning of the year but unfortunately due to inebriation beyond our control, the restaurant opening has been pushed back until 2011. Here is a representative sampling of our menu for your perusal, though.

Grilled Cheese: $5
Honey and Nut Toastie O’s: $3 (add Milk, $6 extra)
Shepard’s Pie: We pay you $2
Fanta Naranja (Orange Pop): $2.50

That’s all we have so far but we left a message with Bobby Flay to see if he’d be interested in helping us out with our already-strong menu. He hasn’t called us back yet but he’s pretty busy with Food Network’s current Season’s Eatings package and will hopefully call us back in January. Thanks again!


Analogy phonics is a particular type of analytic phonics in which the teacher has students analyze phonic elements according to the phonograms in the word.

Starting from 12/12 you can order

Original Viagra directly from Pfizer

Embedded phonics differs from other methods in that the instruction is always in the context of literature and that separate lessons are not typically taught.

Generally, however, the balanced literacy approach has settled much of the disagreement in the United States. There has been a resurgence in interest in synthetic phonics in recent years, particularly in the United Kingdom.

Hello and thank you for the information. I have one question before you complete my order.

Bupropion belongs to the chemical class of aminoketones and is similar in structure to the stimulant cathinone, to the anorectic diethylpropion, and to phenethylamines in general.

Can you indeed confirm that my order will be sent directly from Pfizer? I called them and they kept saying something about a prescription and hanging up on me like I was batshit crazy. I felt kind of foolish but on the other hand, the lady I spoke to wasn’t very pleasant.

The Rochdale Society of Equitable Pioneers was a group of 28 weavers and other artisans in Rochdale, England, that was formed in 1844.

I look forward to your response and hope that we can get this sorted out quickly so I can…you know…do things with my thing, if you know what I’m getting at here. Sorry.

This is a one-time mailing. If you do not respond, you will not receive any more emails from us.

CG Responds:

Well, let’s see here. I don’t really have anybody I need to find at the moment and I checked with the other guys and they’re not looking to find anyone. So…hmm…I don’t know, who to find…who…to…find? Hey, maybe you could warm up by finding whoever sold you our e-mail address and leave a padded mailer full of dog crap in their mailbox. That might be worth a Ben Franklin. I’ll check with John and see if we can expense it.

Subject: Looking for an apartment in Tel-aviv

Me and my wife are looking for an apartment 2-2.5 rooms, in the centre area of Tel-aviv for one year. The apartment should be clean and at least in a very good condition.

We are ready to pay around 700$. Please let us know if you have it and send all details by e-mail by clicking here

P.S. We need to find it till 17 Dec

CG Responds:

Look who’s come crawling back. Couldn’t stay away, could you? Look man, I told you last week that we just rented out our last apartment. Upping your offer from 650$ to 700$ isn’t gonna change that. You have to let this dream die. You’ll find a place and it’ll be perfect for you and your wife — much better than the pile of crap we just rented out. Trust me.

You should also send e-mails like these before the day you want to move in, just for future reference. You asked for a December 17th move-in date but you didn’t send this e-mail until the 18th. That might be part of your problem. Just some friendly advice.
