    Is it illegal for auto repair shops to do this?.....

    Oh man, too bad you didn't use a CC...you could have placed that amount in dispute. In any event, you should report it to the State and BBB.

    For you guys who actually watched the match: Dids Pierce's 12 minute time-out appear legit or was it just gamesmanship to throw Dementieva off?

    Sorry, but I only remember winners...not semi and quarter finalists. :)

    What's the best pay-as-you-go cell plan?

    Joe, I checked the site and the top up is actually $20 every 90 days! :angry: Oops, nevermid...I found it! :)

    Bye-bye Sharapova, I know the media/networks are pissed that you didn't make it into the finals. I still maintain that Wimby was a fluke! I was also happy to see Roddick gone. He's an idiot.

    Thanks. Maybe I'll return the $120 panny 5.8 gig phone I just bought from Target then. Though my wife is in love with that phone and all the nice features!

    If the security detector at the store beeps on your way out ...

    Sounds like it was more inconvenient for you to return the CDs than simply stop and let the guy peek into your bag. Customer service isn't perfect all the time. I was in Home Depot buying paint this weekend and the guy was totally snotty towards me, answering questions with an attitude and...

    Sarah, did you get the two free phones offered by SunRocket? If so, are they any good?

    Wasting your life

    I honestly don't see how folks could sit around all day on Sunday watching football/sports. Then they come to work on Monday spewing sports stats out of their arses feeling proud of themselves - like they actually did something other than warming a couch. To each his own but I'd prefer to play...

    US Open 2005 (Tennis)

    I don't have cable so wasn't able to watch the match, but I was pulling for Blake given his come-back story. Since Agassi got the better of Blake, I would like to see him win this thing. I have an enourmous amount of respect for Agassi - his tennis is awesome and his involvement in charities is...

    Sunrocket told me it will take 30-60 days. Maybe I will get luck like you did.

    It's been a while. Who now has VoIP?

    Mikes, I think it all depends on how much long distance calling you do. My wife's three sibblings are all in different time zones so we opted for Qwest's $15 per month all you can talk - which is extra to the landline cost. I'm signing up for SunRocket tonight. I want to keep my current number...

    Not for the weak...Found this in the fridge at work

    I think you should send it to Fear Factor. That's probably the nastiest thing I've ever seen on this forum!

    Combine our cell phone and land line monthly bill Multiply this number by 12 Now Subtract it from $199 How much is it? Enough or a small vacation? :D ps. What's a power outage?. I may have experienced one back in 1992 for a couple of hours but that's it.

    Good-bye Qwest. Just got Time Warner internet cable installed today, measured 4.92 Mbps down and 368 Kbps up...more than enough for VOIP!! :p)

    Man I work for a great company

    Another point to remember is while it is generous for companies to match donations it is even better when they let you decide where you want your doantion to go. For instance, the local food shelf in town here can purchase 9 times the grocery compared to what you can purchase with the same...

    Here is where I throw in the towel: "So what does the topical use of flouride in toothpaste, where it is clearly not a "dietary supplement", have to do with a study from whatever source arguing that flouride shouldn't be used as a dietary supplement? " Sounds good Joe, we'll just take...

    Brian, you're right...there are only so many hours in the day and life must go on. Throw in a 15 month old and I'm lucky to have 2-3 hours a day of personal time. Fluoride is not that important to me - I've been using it all my life and continue to do so. But I won't turn a stubborn eye to...

    Brian, you're welcome. Sorry for the testy bit...I was dealing with my 15 month old and trying to finish the post at the same time. I'm encouraged that there are still people left with an open mind like yourself. Best.

    Australia's Dental Service has also spoken out aganst fluoride. This wouldn't be the first time America has lagged behind the world in science. Look, I'm not trying to convince anybody of anything. I've done my research and made up my mind. Want a nice simple life? Just follow the ADA and be...

    Brian, there is a growing body of evidence coming forward that the use of flouride is based on junk science. Do you know that fluoride was never approved by the FDA? According to the head of the Canadian Dental Association's (CDA):"The evidence supporting the effectiveness of dietary fluoride...
