Talk:958: Hotels

Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.

I hardly ever visit the same place twice, so I'd have to give hotels bad reviews ahead of time so that I get lower prices when I get there. Hell, why doesn't Black Hat do that? That way, he can avoid paying full price on his first visit to the hotel, which is what he wants, isn't it? The dishonesty of writing a bad review before he visits shouldn't be a deterrent to a person like him, so why not? Davidy²²[talk] 08:39, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

How did cue ball find out he liked it. Although it is only one person, knowing him directly gives him extra influence. I would say it is about the amount of influence of a review.-- 02:02, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Cueball seems to be friendly enough with Black Hat, so quite likely Black Hat simply mentioned that to Cueball before. Arifsaha (talk) 19:51, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
While lying to Cueball about the quality of a hotel would reduce the overall demand, it is unlikely that both Black Hat and Cueball would both be travelling to the same city over the same date range, effectively meaning they are not competitors. Furthermore, if they were travelling together it is more likely that they would share a room, rental car or other resource, so having Cueball know his preferences benefits Black Hat. 20:44, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Is the title text a reference to a scene in a horror movie? Arifsaha (talk) 19:51, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Highly unlikely, unless you can actually find a horror movie that incorporates those elements (I really hope you can't) -Pennpenn 02:59, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
