Okay I started on the other forum when I build my bike and they helped me seize the engine. It's a story I have told often. I came over here to hang out when it was just a few other guys.

But the reason I come back now that it is much larger is the little things. My bike runs and i don't do much to it any more. I also don't ride it a lot either but that's not the point either. I come back for the little things.

I have been paying 4bucks per brake cable at the bike shop and I read a couple of days ago that wallymart had them for a lot less. Last night I was there and sure as heck if you search you can find a big bundle for five bucks. I heard about that here.

So yeah it's that little bit of information now and then that is why I come here everyday and check it out. So don't stop sharing those little things that you think aren't important.

I have not seized anything YET.
But DITTO on the helpfulness of this site.:D

It is really hard to beat wall-e- world or their money back guarantee.

funny how most seller don't get that. Wally mart looses nothing by giving that money back guarantee. I had a electronic store argue about giving me a refund on a ten dollar keyboard, I have never been back... Talk about stupid management decisions.

You sure got that right...I bought a gift at Radio Shat and they gave me a coupon for a 20 dollar rebate...I did everything they said, included all paperwork, then a month later I get a lame letter saying I didn't include the barcode...which I did. I will never go back.

Whenever I sell anything on Ebay I aways give a warrentee of some type. Usually I refund all the money on just buyers remorse but not shipping but if the product isnt right I refund the shipping to. You would be surprised how much more you can get for an item that way.

with wally mart it is even cheaper and still has the guarantee.

I was just about to ask, because I don't know, because I literally live in the woods without television or newspapers (by choice). And the old mind is a bit confused between Walmart and Kathie Lee Gifford...but don't they both use child labor? Or some sort of ill-schemed-labor? Maybe I shouldn't listen to rumors around the creek here.... wait...all the rumors are about Amy...nevermind. I guess I'll check out Target...since I heard Amy got hired there.

Since I feel a political discussion in the wind, I'm going to opt out. But I never left without at least one salvo. They don't force those kids into a life of slavery. Those kids work there by choice probably either that or go hungry.

Now in China where most of these engines I love come from, Polictical prisoners work in the factories. Or at least they traditionally have. Maybe not making these engines but making some of the export items.

I know I once owned a seagull twin lens camera made by slave labor.

Yes I knew it when I bought it. I'm just a selfish bastard.

Almost anything you buy is made in China anymore, even a lot of your food comes from there BELIEVE IT!

It's the American way....

India is the next big power house coming down the line.

Don't be shocked that the standard of living is changing in this country. I was told by an economics professor in 1970 to expect it with the new emerging global economy. Some will rise and some will fall before it levels out. Thats what he said. I never believed it.

It isn't about how much you make it's about what you can buy with what you make i'm told.

Anyway that"s what the experts tell me>
