Brick And Mortar 2.0: Austrailian Retail Store Charges $5 To Look. Deducts It From What You Buy.

Just looking fee sign in Celiac Supplies' storefront window.Online shopping has a new enemy and it’s not an internet sales tax. The window sign above was created by the owner of Celiac Supplies, Georgina, and it’s in response to the “showrooming” and the “just looking” shoppers that visit her store and purchase from her competitors. From Georgina [Adelaide Now]:

“I’ve had a gut full of working and not getting paid. I can tell straight away who are the rat bags who are going to come in here and pick my brain and disappear.”

I get her frustration but it sounds like a little people repellant might be chasing the customers away too.

Moving to retail vs online: is showrooming and purchasing online more Jubbling? Can ‘sort of’ be our answer? [Adelaide Now via Laughing Squid]

Eating Roadkill In Montana Is A Vote Away From Being Legal.

Elk on a car in Montana.Montana is about to pass a law legalizing the consumption of roadkill. The law will only apply to elk, deer, antelope and moose but will not extend to fur-bearing animals.

Jubbling’s take: consuming roadkill is a much more Jubbling alternative to leaving a freshly killed animal behind to rot. I’d participate in eating roadkill too if a Tofurky made the mistake of running in front of my car. [USA Today]

‘Intersex Fish Of The Lower Potomac’ Is Not A Reality Show. It’s A Reality.

Intersex smallmouth bassBack in 2003, a male smallmouth bass was caught in the south branch of the Potomac River that had both male and female parts – intersex. Since then, wildlife biologists have discovered that 50-100% of the fish in various tributaries leading into Chesapeake Bay have become intersex . Here’s a USGS explanation why fish become intersex:

“Intersex is one manifestation of endocrine disruption in fish. Endocrine disruption can result in adverse effects on the development of the brain and nervous system, the growth and function of the reproductive system, and the response to stressors in the environment. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists have documented the presence of endocrine disrupting contaminants in rivers and streams across the nation. Additionally, USGS scientists and others have demonstrated that exposure to endocrine-active contaminants can cause endocrine disruption, which can have ruinous impacts on fish populations.”

What’s causing the endocrine disruption is still a mystery. In addition to stormwater overflows loaded with sewage and pharmaceutical waste, pesticide pollution and manure with natural hormones from upstream farms are also considered a cause of the he-fish to he-she-fish transformations. There are currently two new bills in the Maryland House and Senate that would require farmers to better track what pesticides they’re using on their farms. [Washington Post]
