Regular 2D Mon-Fri are more like $10, weekends are $12 and 3D is $16 regardless.

All the rioting is always in the city center, which I promptly avoid anyway due to the crime rate, much like going to NJ. It's not that bad but I don't want to take any chances. It's really quiet where I live, which is only a 15 minute drive from where all the **** takes place.

Try this out, see how far you can get: http://www.foddy.net/Athletics.html I was able to legitimately get to about 8m. It wasn't pretty, looked like a retard dancing to Michael Jackson. Probably similar to what some people look like after having a Four Loko or two. Also went backwards and got stopped by a wall.

So I've listed a few of these GM Service know-how DVDs this past week and the T-56 Unit Repair one had 2 people watching it within a few hours of listing it. I wasn't sure what they were worth to people, but I figured starting them at $49.99 was worth a shot.

Well last night I had a guy email me asking what it would take to buy it now. I ******* love when people ask that. So I told him to go ahead and make an offer, and it was worth it to me I'd accept. Meanwhile I did some quick searching on completed listings and saw that on Dec 4th, another "seller" sold a lot of 12 of these GM DVDs for $15.50!!! Stupid ****!

The guy wrote back "I'll give you $60 bucks". I wasn't sure if it was worth more or not, but I figured if the last guy sold 12 of these (the lot included the T-56 DVD), and only got $15.50, that $60 wasn't too bad. I setup the buy it now and he paid immediately. The address I shipped it to today was a mechanic shop, so I'm guessing he'll put it to good use.

Its amazing to see people listing and selling (or not selling) the same **** for bottom dollar. Some people are almost giving the stuff away.

All of the money was going through the debit card, so I think I may leave the actual bank account open as to have a place to make deposits, since my new bank account is Capital One online banking with no physical branch. That way I can make a physical deposit at my old bank and transfer it to my new account. If I had known it was only the debit card I would have closed it long ago. I was assuming with the rate of **** being taken it was coming directly from the account.

**** so I have been driving my integra to get it ready to drive up to DC to sell tommorow. I had a job interview today at 3:30. I am on my way a mile from my house when I make a left turn and I loose spark. I am ******* pissed that the ******* car ain't working and that I'm going to be late for my interview. So I call the company and let the guy kmnow what's up and that I will be late. I then get a ride home to get in my miata to get to the interview. On the way I call my friend to get some suggestions of what to check. He tells me to clean off the distributer and rotor. After I ******* rock my interview I go back to try to fix my car. I clean the bitches off and still the same ****. No ******* spark. Now I have to wait a hour for the ******* tow truck to get here. FML

I payed because otherwise you don't get the package. Filed a claim that the unit was already mine and in the Netherlands since about 2008 and I sent it back just for repairs. That was denied. I sent more proof, the label Scott originally made when he sold it to me in 2008 and the whole conversation about fixing/upgrading it a few months ago. Got an answer yesterday: denied, again.

It's not about the money (ok, a little) but the fact that I have to pay A)for something that was already in the country and in my possession for 2 years and B) When I first got it 2 years ago, I already payed import taxes for it.

Wow, that makes me happy that I can import anything through USPS and only pay 3.6 euros as import taxes.

So the follow up to this is that the local Napa had my ignition coil in stock. It was $55 instead of the $100 that advance or autozone had them listed at, but were out of stock. It was raining this morning so I had to wait until it slowed down a lot. I finally got out and pulled off the old one and tested it and yes it was bad. Put on the new one and car started up perfectly. So now I can head north and hopefully sell this POS.

I'd recommend moving to another country.
