My phone just lit up alerting me of a PayPal payment received like it normally does for a sale. I casually peeked at it and felt my heart hit my chest real quick and the blood rush to my head. $2,149.99 just like that.

Tonight I shall drink to this!

Yes sir. I had to talk with an accountant and make the decision this past week.

PayPal will only report as income if its $20k AND 200 or more transactions. Unfortunately for me I can meet that quota rather quickly, so I had to talk to someone about how to do this correctly.

I already talked with the people I sell for as well and they understand. This means no more cash and possibly 1099's in January.

It was only a matter of time before the government stuck it's nose into eBay.

You are going to create some form of an LLC I assume to do this all under?

Its in the works now.

I had to talk to a few people and get my facts straight before I committed to this full time. Hopefully by the spring/summer everything will be set up. Since its just me doing everything though its taking a toll on my mind. Between designing the website, listing new items and shipping the ones I'm selling I'm just a ******* mess all day long.

Does anyone knew, definitively, the legality of cannabis shops in Amsterdam regarding tourists?

I am making a layover with my parents there in June and we are considering spending a couple of days there. And yes, head shops are a given if we do spend a couple days there. I hear mixed information regarding foreigners and these shops. From what I can understand, the new legislation wants to make it illegal to all but locals, but it would be very hard to do because of UN laws regarding discrimination.

I will be 18, so that's not a problem.

Anyone who can shed light on the situation will be much appreciated.

I don't know how much this helps, but in high school the people in band got to take a trip to tour/play in several countries in Europe, and I know for a fact that in Germany they where allowed to drink if they got a note signed from their legal guardian. Also, fwiw wasen't there an episode of TopGear UK where Jeremy Clarkson walked into Amsterdam and smoked a joint? Of course that was TV so..

Random guy is always watching lol.

Again I see a stunning girl on a sport bike. This time this girl was parked infront of my work. I walk outside to assist someone while the girl leaving. She goes out and pivots her bike on the kickstand and spins it around, starts the bike and rides out like a boss. :fap!: Fap! :fap!:

And I saw this emo chick from Guam that I had class with. She reminds me off like abby from NCIS but smaller, sexier, and with a lip ring. She has like a newer murdered out Eclipse and basses sick DnB hard as fok.

Edit: If Ida seen 'Megan Fox' at the bookstore today... Best day ever.

According to Oscar, there is no weed in Amsterdam. It's all a lie.

how much boost loss can a warped flange cause?

I used to be at 8 psi, but the turbo flange on my manifold has warped, causing leakage on one side... but would it cause a turbo to boost to 5psi max even with the wastegate disabled?

Hey I need a scope that reads 12v and up to 1 millisecond pulse widths, will this fit the bill? Obviously I need to get some probes.

Edit: Assuming nothing has been changed aside from the warped manifold, then yes.

lol thanks, thats all I needed. I guess its time to see a machinist. I was getting very paranoid when I checked all couplers and what not... and the evangelion jokes are awesome... very little people know what show neo genesis was. I used to have a thing for crazy redheads... then I dated one... not for me.

pen pen got my main attention when he popped open a can of beer.
