Trouble Logging In to Goodreads?

UPDATE: This is apparently resolved! Like most things where you just finish writing a complaint or calling the help desk, it gets immediately resolved while waiting for a reply or on hold. LOL

 

Anyone else having trouble? I typically just remain logged in, but today, I was logged out. So I type my email and password - and I get errors.

 

 

I've sent a request to Goodreads so we'll see how long it takes for an answer. Just trying to see if it's a me problem or a wider issue.

I apologize...

...for flooding everyone's feed with my bullet reviews! I don't tend to hop onto Booklikes much anymore, and when I do, I usually have several reviews to post. This is probably really annoying - if it does bug you, I can hold back and post like 1 or 2 at a time instead of like half a dozen.

Glamour Shot!

I've been seeing this Glamour Shot thing going around, so I did both my real name and my internet name - my real name was rather boring (80's hair), but my Internet name is a freaking riot! I don't want to scare you with it, so I'll hide it in the spoiler tag and leave the link below.

 

(spoiler show)

Crystal Asks: The Price of Cologne in the US

So, why would the Calvin Klein men's cologne, Obession, be less expensive than the Calvin Klein women's cologne, Eternity?

 

Some price investigation:

 

At Amazon the 1 floz bottles run $39/$45 respectively.

 

At the CK website, men's come in 4oz bottles for $71, and women's come in 3.4oz bottles for $78. Men's have the option of 6oz, but 3.4oz is the highest available for women.

 

Obsession came out in 1986, 1 year after the female version. Eternity came out in 1988.

 

Is there a difference in technique? Can the price of spices and scents used influence price so obviously? Or is this just plain old sexism at work?


ETA: Seems the whole damn industry is messed up:
