This is another one of those posts that reads like r/subredditsimulator
I had to read that title 4 times and then break it down into concepts before I understood it and I still don't
Someone contact Alaska's last Blockbuster, please I cannot live with this cliffhanger :P
I watched the Joel McHale show last night where this was featured and I spent much of the night wondering who would buy such a thing. Now I can rest easy.
At moments like this it’s weird to be in the same town as the last Blockbuster in the lower 48.
I used to live in North Pole. There isn’t much to do there in town (Fairbanks is a 15 minute drive away though) but some of my fondest memories are of putting my kids in the bike stroller (the kind you pull behind you) in the summer and riding to the Blockbuster to get ice cream from their freezer and rent a movie. Other than that, I hated living there. Way too conservative for me, and other than the Blockbuster there was a competition between the churches, the fast food restaurants and the bars to see which one could legally hold the most assholes without violating fire codes.
Also, I could swear the Blockbuster in Fairbanks is still open...
