Howdy, folks. As some of you may recall, there is a virtual stroll (amble, arch...ery, ramble) from San Francisco to Japan going on. The first IRL listing has expired. The new IRL listing has dropped us to 3 participants from 11. That is fine but perhaps you meant to join up to log your walking (skipping, etc.) time for fun and forgot. Or perhaps you never heard about it. I am here to say there is still plenty of time to participate in the soon-to-be-legendary Peripatetic Persistent Pirate Puffins' Pacific Peregrination (2). Join us!
this year has been and continues to be bad! I invite you to invest a little time in your home and mental wellbeing by participating in this November challenge.

(note that if this is a security question for any account you should of course not answer)
Apropos of this thread, I'm trying to find a MetaFillter comment from a few years ago in which the commenter related a story about a friend or family member whose company made a product that Walmart became interested in selling. [more inside]
