The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 435

I hate the UK sometimes. £20 customs and duty bill for a $16 item, that's 190% more than the dang item itself! Not paying that without a proper breakdown of costs beforehand. If I think it's wrong I'm still not paying until they get it right.

Look on the bright side, it'd probably be worse if you were not there.  So they're fortunate and likely in better shape than they otherwise would be.  Note that I didn't say bright side for you per se.  But a least someone is getting a good deal out of this.

My God!  Why would they do such a thing?  Shouldn't a government love it's people?

We went and looked at the new SRT Viper and it's an improvement over the previous gens, more refined and comfortable. The Stingray isn't really a direct competitor, being much less expensive, but the "halo" C7 `vette (the Z06/ZR1 variant) should be a real player. If rumors are true, it's going to be a sub-3sec monster that will go head-to-head with the likes of the F12berlinetta, even in amenities. I'm skeptical, but very curious.

I think that there will be a C7 ZR1 in the same way that there will be a SRT Viper ACR. Those two cars are like Canon or Nikon, or Hifiman HE-500 vs Audez'e LCD-2. They're both worst enemies but also vital.
Anyway, I'm glad that the Viper still exists. It's like TVRs, mad yet wonderful.

Well I don't think it's gotten that bad yet...  Actually, I don't live there, so I'm not sure.

Perhaps... but we should remember that traveling to and from the US is what is expensive.  Once he's here, it's relatively cheap to move about within the CONUS.  And if we look at it that way, then it helps to be in the center of the country (more or less).

 

 

Exactly!  And Canada's pretty close too.  BTW, LOL @ "numbers"

 

 

 

And really fun flash mobs!

 

 

Yes there's a minor in nuclear engineering. I don't know if we have a major in it or not but for arts & sciences majors its offered.

 

Very true I guess, in that case come to OSU jgray~.

 

Also yeah, that's not even that big of an event :P. With a student body of over 50,000 a lot can happen. We also have yearly free concerts once in fall and once in spring. They're fairly big names too. We had weezer a few years back, last year was skrillex and mac miller. Our fall concert this year was 2 chainz and big sean LOL.

What'd you have?  I know it doesn't look like it would be good, but their famous bowls are pretty good.

It's just that, idk, that seems like the kind of thing that requires more than a minor.

Sure, but its just kinda nice seeing a bunch of students get together to do something fun and low-key like that.

KFC is nasty. Popeye's is where it's at :D


OK, so I'm a bit late getting on the FOTM bandwagon, but I just got the MH1C for audition from one of my friends. I'm seriously considering selling my Wooduo and GR07 and just use these as a portable IEM until I go custom.
