    I hardly hear anything about the Harlem Shake anymore.


    It was featured in an episode of Glee recently and it looked dated even now.

      Is there anything that lasts long enough to be a fad anymore?

        The next new fad is: old fashioned markets, because Tesco just announced that it is leaving the USA after losing money on its "Fresh & Easy" stores in California, Nevada and Arizona since 2007.



        I'm gonna miss those stores. The problem they had was that there wasn't much of a selection. There would be like only 2 brands of something. They only sold produce in bulk, so it was hard to buy if you only wanted one apple or something. I remember during the 2012 London games they sold imported Olympics stuff from the UK.

        This format was also used for the Famima stores that were brought to Southern California. The Famima stores were more of a true convenience store. They sold mostly Japanese goods, but now the ones that are still running mostly sell American foodstuffs.


        Thanks pikachulover for the details. I was thinking maybe the prices kept people away. Anyhow it looks like there will not be any new ideas in food retail for under-served neighborhoods anytime soon.

          I've never seen Glee.

              Ya, the magic of viral video and social networking have really diminished the length of a fad.

                  Ice Age is still a fad as far as animation goes.
