Blockbuster Video has changed the way their DVD rental boxes look. Instead of the generic white boxes with the blue logo, they use the insert from the DVD and a little informational sticker on the front.
Good: This serves us consumers well by saving Blockbuster the labor costs of printing and preparing the generic labels. It also helps those who decide to buy the DVD using the new "No Late Fee" program that lets you just keep it and be charged for it. You now have a good looking DVD and not an ugly generic case.
Bad: When you see one of those generic DVD boxes in your home, you probably think, "Do I have to return that yet?" However, when you see a normal looking DVD case, you will probably just put in back on the shelf where it belongs. And if you don't, someone in your house will. Next thing you know, you are being charged for a movie you forgot to return, and since it already looks so nice on the shelf, you will probably just keep the damn thing. They also raised their movie rental price to $4.29 and games to $7.99.
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
