It’s How You Use It
…And if you got the ‘short’ end of the stick, har, har…you simply need to learn how to keep it steady indefinitely; and marshall your allies; i.e., tongue & fingers.
Others use the law to make up for “shortcomings.”
Like Joseph I. Marchese. If he even has a dick, it must be limp. …How else could you explain his behavior? From an email just now:
The Summit CF11ES chest freezer was marked with an Energy Star label that significantly understated its actual energy usage. Testing by the U.S. Department of Energy found this freezer exceeds the maximum permitted annual energy usage to qualify for the Energy Star program. In addition, this freezer exceeds the maximum annual energy usage allowed by federal law. Because this appliance uses more energy than indicated on its labels, consumers may pay hundreds of dollars in additional energy costs.
If you purchased one of these freezers, we would like to hear from you to try to understand how it is performing for you, and to determine how many people purchased these mislabeled appliances. Please contact Joseph I. Marchese at Bursor & Fisher, P.A. by responding to this email.
He’s actually not looking to get you a better, more energy efficient freezer, if there even is such a thing. He’s looking to get you a class action settlement check for a whopping $2.43, while he and his firm collect a few mil.
“Little Joe” Marchese
I replied in email, modestly:
Fuck off. I took my chances and the freezer has performed as advertised; meaning, it fucking keeps frozen food fucking frozen for later use.
….Though in conciliation, I can understand how frozen blood might be problematic for a blood sucker.
Now for the science guys: as it’s a chest freezer and cold runs downhill, what could we possibly be talking about for keeping our grassfed and other precious, nutritious meats, fish, poultry — and animal products in general — at our beck & call fingertips?
Update: I got a reply from him this morning.
Thanks for your kind words, but I disagree with you. The freezer is not performing as advertised because it costs you more money to operate than advertised. In fact, the freezer uses so much energy that it violates federal law (see the attached letter from the Department of Energy and recent article from Consumer Reports magazine).
See, he just doesn’t get it. He assumes I care about “Consumer Reports” and “federal law” in such matters. I don’t. And incidentally, according to the report he attached, there is variation in how a freezer will consume energy based upon the amount of stuff in it — from empty to full — and what temperature setting you use. Consumer Reports tests them chock full of highly dense, stacked packages at zero degrees. I wonder why. In any case, the range went from something like 50% to 100% more energy use than “advertised.” So in my case for the model I have, instead of $30 per year in operating costs, we’re talking $45.
Oh, my, but the horrible harm I’ve suffered.
