If your prospective university has an in-house racing team that fields both GT and LMP2 cars, it's probably a good sign right?

It grates on me to hear commercials with split infinitives. It bothers me even more when they use "different to" rather than "different from" in the same 30 second spot.

In Pittsburgh, To Be verbs are apparently optional.

Normal Person: "My car needs to be fixed"
Yinzer: "My car needs fixed"

I be jammin
You be jammin
he be jammin
she be jammin
they be jammin

I was wondering the same thing. Do the sponsors sign up directly for the individual forums? Or are they a blanket IB sponsor?

I can't see a sponsor profiting well from boat anchors and swag here, so it's odd to me that they were desiring/approved for sponsorship here, but if they are an IB sponsor and blanketing all the related forums it makes more sense.

reminds me of the old saying: "Leave an enlisted man in an empty room with two bowling ***** for an hour. When you come back, one bowling ball will be broken and the other will be missing"

They are a IB blanket sponsor. Found a bunch of stuff from them on some honda forums with the same basic posts.
