Yes, my address happens to be confirmed.

I was not born yesterday, I happen to know about fraud. Geeez.

How does FM know Joe Blow from NY does not commit fraud, how am I any different?

My brain? I am a paying customer.. I am opening my wallet. That's not enough?

Also, no vendor ships anything out BEFORE they get paid and verify funds.
So, essentially it is me, the customer, who is at the vendor's mercy while purchasing anything online. This is why I have trouble understanding why someone would charge me for the privilege of paying them. Just bad business practice.

If your address is confirmed I'll ship to you all day 'er day. That's stupid on FM's part then.

If it wasn't the seller isn't protected.

With the front so much narrower than the back, it makes him look like he can't hit an apex worth a damn.

FM has always been paranoid about verifying everything to the point where it is kind of a pain, I agree. I've had a beer with the staff and still have to jump through hoops to get them to ship to my work address instead of my billing address.

Oddly enough, I also had a very weird dream last night, which rarely happens.

I was viewing the final Space Shuttle launch, looking out the window of the upper floor of a tall building. The launch was at night.

Shortly after the shuttle stack cleared the tower, it lost power on all engines (including the SRBs, which is impossible.) It then started to behave like a conventional airplane, entering a stall condition due to too high of an angle-of-attack relative to airspeed. The pilot pitched the nose forward and down (correct stall-recovery procedure for a normal airplane) and it began to gain airspeed and produce lift (impossible) however it didn't have enough altitude, and subsequently crashed into the ground very near the launch site.

The resultant explosion destroyed not only the shuttle stack, but also the two other shuttle assemblies (complete with SRBs and full external tanks) which were inexplicably parked right next to the launch site, lying in a horizontal position on their own fuel tanks.

This explosion propelled a large amount of debris towards the building in which I was standing. One large piece (about the size of a complete satellite) struck the building, however instead of striking at a direct angle, it sort of swiped across the building from right to left (impossible, as the wall of the building was directly facing the launch site) tearing out all of the windows in front of me, but leaving me unharmed.

At this point, I thought to myself "Well, crap. That's a pretty undignified way to end the program."
Even Joe's dreams are super technical. Love.

For ---- sake, tell me something. I've been bidding to get one of my old jobs back, and I have been waiting for a definite answer for like two months now. Started out as a yes, but there were no open spots to fill. Then it went silent for a week or two and I heard a spot was opening. Then I applied for the open job and didn't hear anything back and from what my friend who works there said, everyone wanted me back, my co workers and supervisor, but the head man over the lab wasn't sure since this will be my third time back (understandable). Now I call today to hopefully get an answer one way or the other, but now I have to wait till tomorrow for an interview, since the company changed hands. Stressed as ---- for another day. I want this job BAD. It's been a back and forth "you're almost guaranteed to be hired soon" to "wait and see". My nerves can't handle much more.

Well, I'm hoping I have better luck. He sounded like on the phone it was more the red tape of the new large company that bought them, since they used to be a small, privately owned lab.

And this is not the Random thread... not sure how I got here.

Most mammals don't typically fart rainbows either.
