Ah ha....good stuff!


As a side note, my dad flew for Eastern (Captain on both a 757 and the L1011) and my mom was a stewardess.

Nice. I think if I could do it all over again I would have given more consideration to being a pilot, but it's a bitch of a career nowadays. Not like the glory days of flying back when both of our dads most likely started their careers.

Wanted something casual
$500 is kinda pricey for a "beater" but I really liked it
I was iffy about it being 44mm but I just tried on a diff hamilton in same size and it was still fine on my wimpy wrists
So I ordered it
Should be here end of the week

Absolutely. he has taken a lot of pension cuts and various concessions. He wished he could've retired early, but cest la vie.

Top half looks good
The pants ... getting caught on something? Too tight?
Try asking someone else to take pics for you for a more natural stance

I am about ready to put my fist through the wall over Asian eBay buyers. Four of the last five items have ended with a high bidder in Asia. It's like they specifically search out my items and try to get me to ship to Asia for the same price as shipping to the continental US.

I was literally on eBay getting ready to end an auction early for a guy (and I checked his profile - clearly states he's in the US), and an email popped up where he says, "I'm in Korea. Can you still do the sale for the same price?" NO.

I state in ALL CAPS that I do not ship outside the US. Is this some sort of buying technique?

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Of course, it goes without saying that you should never trust anyone who is 1) Korean; 2) Korean-American; or 3) a friend or acquaintance of anyone in categories 1 and/or 2.

Take it up with ebay ... don't know if they will ever do anything about it though
It is pretty ridiculous how they don't block international accounts from bidding and saleblocking your auction
Such a waste of time
