    This came about by reading the main Friendly Banter forum too quickly on entirely too small a phone, but I saw "Why is it impossible to find a decent jetpack!?" and now I desperately want that to be a thing! Might have to make it happen! :-D

    Yes, for the times I walk to the club and because of the storage space (I don't have room in the dining room for multiple bags). Plus I already have to carry my tablet in hand (learned that the expensive screen-repair hard way).

    Well, serves me right for noticing the 'In Stock' message on the page but not the fact said page sold squat...

    Why the hell would you even bother making such a site, anyway?
    It seems that the site doesn't actually sell anything. None of the other items have an option to buy. They just say they have good prices and a "Find more on Amazon" button. I thought maybe it was a local shop that didn't do online orders or shipping so you had to come into the shop to pick it up, but there's no physical address listed either.

    If you click the Amazon button, it's an affiliate link, which means that the referring site gets paid a cut of the sale if you buy the item. It looks like "Outdoor World Shop" is just a website designed to look like a local shop so they can snag some money from people that didn't go straight to Amazon.

    Thanks. Now I get it.

    How much is the cut, exactly?

    According to Amazon, it's 1 to 10 percent, depending on the category of the item.

    Am I allowed to define where that pound comes from? I'm trying to lose weight. *smirks*
