Well that sucks; Your Packages Are About to Be Wrapped in Bubble Wrap That Doesn’t Pop

Everything you once loved is eventually ruined. Nothing ever changes for the better. Life is just empty darkness. Sorry, where was I . . .

Sealed Air Corp. is the company that makes Bubble Wrap, and they’re about to start selling a version that YOU CAN’T POP. They gave it a horrible name, too: iBubble Wrap.

Its bubbles are part of a chain and they aren’t individually inflated, so you can’t pop them.

Sealed Air will sell the stuff UNINFLATED, and companies will have to pay about $5,500 for a pump that inflates it.

But it’ll save Sealed Air a lot of money, and over time it will save those companies money because this stuff will be cheaper than old-fashioned Bubble Wrap.

It’ll also be good for the companies like Amazon because the uninflated wrap takes up less space in their warehouses . . . and they can use that extra room to stock more products.

Traditional Bubble Wrap will still be on sale . . . but you can expect that pretty soon, a lot of the packages you get will use this new version.

In the Valley, you need to know this.  Five Tips for Buying Sunglasses

In the Valley, you need to know this. Five Tips for Buying Sunglasses

Hot Summer Sunglasses

Summer officially starts this Sunday. According to eye doctors, here are five tips for buying a good pair of sunglasses . . .

  1.  Make sure they have 100% U.V. protection.

    U.V. rays are radiation from the sun that can make you develop cataracts.
    A survey last year found less than half of us check the U.V. sticker on sunglasses before we buy them.
    So check the tag the next time you buy a cheap pair at a gas station.
    Some of those only block about 40% of U.V. rays.

  2.  Big sunglasses are better, because they keep more of the U.V. rays out. Ideally they should be oversized, and wrap around your face.
  3.  The color of the lenses doesn’t matter, and neither does how dark they are. Lighter lenses can still block all of the U.V. rays.
  4.  Polarized lenses reduce glare, not necessarily U.V. exposure. So if you’re buying polarized sunglasses, make sure they block 100% of U.V. rays too.
  5.  Don’t break the bank. You don’t have to spend a hundred bucks to protect your eyes. $10 sunglasses with 100% U.V. protection work just as well.
