FLMM: sorry to hear you're having what sounds like a bad week there. Go speak to a lawyer. First consult is typically free. Should at the very least put your mind at ease. It may be the case that your 'friend' is angry and embarassed, and that it will blow over, but you'll want to be ready just in case. He attacked you, right? Always hate to hear about things like this; hate to say it and mean you no offense, but sounds like you're better off without a "friend" like...

Sorry to hear that it's a defect, but always wonderful to hear when a company takes full responsibility and issues a replacement without any drama. Here's hoping you get your replacement boots ASAP, and to many years of enjoyment

Believe half of what you see, and even less of what you hear. Nothing illegal about going through garbage or hiring an investigator to collect info on an organization. It's illegal to tap phones, etc. without a court order, and serious jail time for hacking computers, however. If Greenpeace had any "proof" of this, we'd be reading about this on the front page of every major paper on the planet (what, their "enemy" the chemical companies now invested in GMOs--Are you...
@ Kmarriner: not really sure what you did, but did you pile up the polish (i.e., layers on top of layers) without giving it a chance to cure? Also, base layers sometimes crack. If so, you'll have to strip it down and start afresh. The British military do this all the time to their boots (i.e., strip down, give them a good conditioning, brushing off the dirt, etc and polish up to a shine). It's easy to do, but if you're uncomfortable with this, just take your boots to a...

Sorry to hear that you missed it, Magician, but am happy to tell you that there are NIN/Bauhaus videos on youtube (just checked). Just do a search under "bauhaus nine inch nails" and they'll come up for you. (I'd add the link myself, for a fellow fan, but am under the...

Saw them in concert a few years ago, appeared with Bauhaus (a great band) who handed them off the mic in the footsteps of The Who who handed off to the Clash back at a show I saw in the 80s (also great bands)--and it was really cool, being akin to handing off an Olympic torch. As a former musician, my tastes in...

Going on a trip to a tree farm as a family to cut down our own tree and enjoy some farm activities and hot apple cider, etc. with the kids this year. It should be fun, I think.
Quote: Originally Posted by J'aimelescravates Honestly I do not see why there is such an issue with this. If it looks good with your current day's dress, why not? I sometimes wear these with sport coats. I will admit that, by themselves, they look a little -well- questionable. With a coat, be it suit or sport, it should be fine. What is the rule that says you can't? Believe it or not, there are rules which say you don't wear links or...
^^^ They've a no quibble returns/exchange policy, provided you return the shoes/boots to them within 30 days and in the same condition in which they were received -- i.e., you tried them on in a carpeted area so as not to scuff the soles, etc. You'll send them back to them at your cost, and they'll give you a refund or send you out a replacement pair (your choice). If you request a replacement, they'll send it out quickly and even split the cost of sending them to you....
