    Why Pay Full Price at Restaurants During This Great Recession Weekend

    When you can use a BOGO coupon for a lion’s share of restaurants anyway, even Dennys now.

    Same thing with houses, cars, boats, planes, etc….if you’re paying retail you either have money to flush down the toilet or you buy anything the salesmen tell you is a good deal.

    We finally had our short sale go through… It was an ordeal, but we got the house we wanted for the price we wanted when all was said and done.

    Edit: I take it back. The duplicates have disappeared after I resorted the data. I imported the data into google docs, which I assume is the problem…never had that problem before.

    I downloaded the raw data and I see a number of duplicate entries (at least based on the listing id and/or the property id). Are these actually duplicates? Is that reflected in your data, or is it an artifact of how I got the data somehow?

    I edited the original post–you’re right. I think google docs was misbehaving. Sorry for the confusion.
