From the explanation they gave me it is because I need to establish a successful eBay sales history....despite my long history of sells and having no problems whatsoever with accessing my paypal funds until this random hold. It is to "provide a safe buying and selling experience" and a "common practice of the industry"

Every time I've called PayPal support the customer service has been fantastic. For all the awful calls they probably receive, they're always really friendly and helpful smile.gif I know it's cool to hate on PayPal, but running a P2P cash payment system gotta be ~tough~ with all the weirdos on the internet

Also, it's crazy how often people try to use fraudulent credit cards @ B&M boutiques. Had no idea people were that brazen/dumb. Also snatch/grab.
Had someone charge 575 at bcbg on a card I rarely used. Went to two small restaurants the week before and nothing for two months before that other than Costco so figure someone swiped it there. wad right before holiday travels so took two weeks for me to notice.

It looks like my experience is common... it's never taken more than 12 hours to get through the SF location. WTF? Their phone number goes straight to VM.

LA hasn't been bad for me. Record for me is two months at NY and 6 weeks at Chicago. Usually it's quick but random packages always get lost. Calling to find out will do nothing. I've gotten follow ups of inquiries that package was lost after package was delivered and marked as such.

Paypal has a super shitty terms of service policy too. They can do almost anything they want

It's essentially an unregulated bank at this point.  I think that they have probably skirted that only because they don't actually engage in banking.  However, from a depositor's POV, they are remarkably similar.

I tend to like the idea of transformation and different uniforms for different occasions. 

So... same.  That said, there have been times I've wondered what would happen if I was wearing slim jeans, and either had to fight, or run.  It's hard to jump fences in jeans unless you are wearing JNCOs, and you definitely can't kick particularly well.  I am wearing some tech pants right now, and yes, I can kick in them.

 

Also, someone needs to make martial arts uniforms with seriously strong antibacterials.  Wrestling mats are disgusting, no matter how often they are sprayed down.  Pretty much everyone I know who has practiced BJJ or MMA has contracted staph at some point.  I had MRSA about 5 years ago, and I just found out yesterday that a fighter and very highly respected BJJ coach nearly died because he contracted MRSA that got into his lungs.  Somthing like an 8 month recovery, and even for a long time after that, his health was seriously compromised.

IT Q: why do I get signed out when I use my phone? If I I use another app and come back, I have to log in again.

Maybe if el Bert would stop sending me awesome Dries things to buy. Actually please don't stop doing that el Bert.

It's a clear sign that you need to permanently adopt a yellow jump-suit.

Or fighting in suits.  I roll my eyes every time I see James Bond whoop ass in a Brioni or Tom Ford.

 

Totally agree on the staph, it's scary stuff.  I'd like to get into BJJ to supplement my stand up, it looks like a ton of fun.  I just can't get past all the infection stories, though.  I'm sure you've seen this lovely medical exhibit of staph-afflicted fighters:  http://middleeasy.com/top-lists/the-top-ten-staph-infections-in-mma-history/

Not even gonna look, but yeah, mats are terrible. Back in the day though, we'd roll on bamboo floors. Hurts like crazy, but no one got staph, that I know.

I have thrown a kick in some wool/elastane pants. IMHO, 18 ounce denim is harder.

Good call, once you look you can't unsee.  Kevin Randleman's on that list.  When I heard he'd died I was like "where do I know him from? Oh yeah, he had staph eat a hole right though his chest."

 

Rolling on bamboo sounds like a good idea, actually.  Yes, probably more uncomfortable but also good conditioning for when you gotta grapple in a non-sporting situation.

Yeah, I'm thinking of the fashion forward type of suits.  The really slim fitting stuff.  Constricting range of movement.

Suits are better for kicking than jeans. The fabric has some give and at least worst case scenario they just rip. With jeans, the only thing breaking is going to be your balls.
