Just wondering...

**

Where is Amazon.com, anyway? In all my driving around this country, I've never even glimpsed a single one of their warehouses or offices.

Are they underground?
In orbit?

I've never met anyone who works for Amazon, either.

Are they even real? Maybe they're a front for something quite sinister.

And what about those tiny corncob-esque entities in certain salads?--I've never seen any farms with acre upon acre of miniature corn "toe-high by the fourth of July."

Maybe it's best to refrain from checking into a lot of the "ordinary" things we take for granted...

Thank you! I will have to make a pilgrimage someday.

I think Amazon is just one dol-gang huge hard drive sitting in a warehouse. No humans required anymore.

Amazon is up in Seattle. Have you driven up there? They're huge up there... One of the city's biggest employers.

Lexington, Kentucky. I used to live down the street from the biggest warehouse you've ever seen...and when I ordered books, I always got them the very next day :)

Have you ever crossed their actual threshold? If so, what's it like in there?
