If you are found to not honestlycorrectly announce your item, you may be sent to the court. We can also let an agent to deal with it for an extra fee

 

 

Oh great news! My friends who went to a preparation course to study in Japan passed their test and they will continue their study in Japan! However, these mofo really have forgotten that I was also with them. I know I flunk that course, but that doesn't mean I wasn't there AT ALL. Then they had their graduation dinner and they didn't invite me! I don't care if I don't get to eat anything, but I do want to see them one more time before their takeoff. Ah well, I knew this thing would happen, so the disappointment that I feel right now is lessened. But it still hurts anyway. Let's do it like this. They forget about me, I forget about them. It's a win win situation so yeah

And that folks, another episode of how "friendships to betrayals" happen in my life. Too many I couldn't count anymore.

It depends on how much your item costs, or rather the value it was declared at... There's a certain limit where if something costs less than that, they won't charge you customs. But the most expensive thing I've ever ordered was declared at $25 and I didn't have to pay customs. My friend's 4As, however, ~$50 to the customs people

Hmm, it must be REALLY old then... Hmm...
On an unrelated note, my computer teacher says he owns an IBM 5100, though I'm not sure if he's BS'ing or not. I did explain the context of why I asked him as well...

Really? They're going to wait a year? I thought they released new GPUs every 6 months or so...
Edit: what are the power requirements and how much are you selling it for?

Every six months? lol I was talking about a generation/line. There's supposed to be a line that's released this year that's more power efficient and so on, but I haven't' checked on nvidia in a year redface.gif

Nope. Didn't make it. The course was an intensive Japanese preparation program that was held locally. Students have to study Japanese + Science subjects (Phys, Maths, Chem in Japanese) for 2 years. Then they have to take EJU (not sure what it stands for). If they pass the EJU and the course, then they can continue to study in Japan under government scholarship. I couldn't take it because it was very tiring and I got sick of it. So I failed the course. Good thing I don't owe the government much money

:s oh... I see.

ye... fb... the more interconnected/globalized the world has become, the less value in words/friendships is something I've found lol. So they just didn't invite you or something? I wouldn't take that to heart <- I'm not invited to any parties/hangouts... rather I never have been as long as I can remember.

OMFG. TOMODACHI NEXT IS LOL. ONEE-SA-BABA LOLOL. Even though baba means old lady/hag translating team changed it to b i t c h LOL

 

As for customs... omfg. Wait, so I have to go all the way to the place that they have customs? I don't know anywhere near that has to do w/ customs :/
