    I\'ll never get used to this

    There is just so much in this that is foreign to my experience that I am speechless. (Bear in mind that I'm a certified old fart - CONSIDERABLY closer to retirement than graduation):

    "At DCsnacks.com, students at George Washington University and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., can order Ben & Jerry's ice cream, DVDs, condoms or any other late-night needs with the click of a mouse. "

    What's your gripe, Peter?
    Don't believe in birth control or pre-marital sex?

    Re: I\'ll never get used to this

    I'm not griping. It's just so ... so ... DIFFERENT! And on so many levels (I'm not just referring to the condoms).

    However, since you mentioned it, I can remember (about 1967) when there was an uproar when the Pakistani-owned convenience on the campus (the ONLY shop - apart from the bookstore - for miles, by the way) started carrying condoms.

    I know how you feel. Back in my day, we had to make our OWN ice cream!

    Where I grew up all we had to do was call. I find that much more convenient. ;-)
