  1. jeff bezos had nothing to lose.
    Think about it.
    He was a very smart guy. Graduating from college top of his class with a degree in electrical engineering and computer science.
    Worked at wall street and before he started amazon was a executive at a hedge fund making 6 figures. The guy became a executive at any company he worked for within 2-3 years. So he basically had the foundation skills/knowledge to just start his own business.
    So let's say amazon failed. No big deal. He was smart enough and in demand enough he knew he could get another job somewhere and continue on with his life.
    Well lucky for him amazon did work out and he's now the richest businessman in modern history.

  2. If we can ever get them to refund us for the package their driver stole and marked delivered we plan to stop using them. My wife calls them Scamazon. They are propped up by the CIA and want to destroy America.
