Tignes

Postby RadE » Thu Jan 06, 2005 9:05 am

Anyway, I'm still looking to find somebody to kite with in Tignes ( where the photo was taken ), but I still didn't see a single kite there. If somebody goes there, let me know, I'll be there again fom 22 janl 7th feb, and again by the end of feb, and som more this season. don't really care if there riding best or ozone.
By the way, I would be embarrased if I was responsable for marketing at best.

I'm with the 'who gives a fuck' brigade on this on...as much a everyone would like to bash best - just illustrates the fact that all marketing is bullshit....hey you could even use it to your advantage.

Best - saving money on advertising to reinvest in products to save you the consumer money....

.....because we care :wink:

BTW i'm up for a trip trip to Tignes, I havent been for a while, have they finished the Big cable car in Val yet?

I too am with the "who cares" crew.
They still make decent kites, right? Just because their marketing is a little, well, odd, doesnt make them Evil. Sheesh.
Get over it.

Do those moms come 2 for 1?

Have they ever really been to the french alps??

Or how about that A.S.S.? do they come with that?!

Sound like a deal! Beats someones second hand mom!

Any good reviews of last years moms out there?



Need snow!

You see, these are my concerns exactly.

>Do those moms come 2 for 1?

That would be great - right? But what if I pay for a 10.0 and get two 5's. Don't want 'em. Or the "two for one deal" could make itself clear when a 220 lb Helga arrives on your doorstep. Marketing can be a bitch.


>Have they ever really been to the french alps??

Are they French? Do they shave their armpits? Did I say that outloud?


>Or how about that A.S.S.? do they come with that?!

I really like that feature, but more isn't necessarily better.


>Sound like a deal! Beats someones second hand mom!

You might think so, but sometimes it's better to know what you're getting rather than having to do your own, testing, and break-in.


>Any good reviews of last years moms out there?

I'm guessing that this could get even Gumball pissed off.


RC.

Disclaimer: it's all in fun. I don't really want to ride Gumball's mom. At least I don't think I do. She's not one of those "Best Girls" on his website - right?

She's quite the hottie if I do say so myself, and she's learning to kite at age 63
