See what happens when people get carried away? Mr G has got to step in and calm things down again.

Alright everyone, let's all be sensible, and play nice for a few more days.

Wasn't even thinking about jobs. More about the environmental cost of shipping. And I barely "care about that sort of thing", but this one is pretty easy. Two equal products in front of me, one made locally, the other shipped 5000 miles to get here.... Why would I choose Trilogy?

I was trying to be inclusive to my own race, and not race in general, merely a sub-sect.

But I'll clean it up from race. The amount of human trash repulses me. There, now I was race tolerant and inclusive!

It's not like I said anything that no one could identify with, you all knew what I meant.

When I've run Trilogy Challenges, MVP Circuits, and Vibram Birdie Bashes. The shipping has been all over the place. Trilogy seems to run closest to the wire, but MVP and Vibram have both had me worried in the past too.

One year I tracked a box of putters from Finland to my door in Iowa, because they ran out. It made it in time, but just barely. I gotta imagine that they took on the teeth for shipping like that, but they made a mistake and did their best to make it right.

Having worked in the shipping business for over 30 years, I have to honestly say that it's just not a good idea for a company to wait to ship an order to arrive the day before or day of the need for it. Alot can go wrong to delay that shipment (weather, mis-sorts), even with a guaranteed arrival date. It's just smart business to allow for that, when possible. It's not always possible, though.

Yeah, you can lose a day in your home town if the truck gets a flat. Imagine the possibilities of misfortune from dock to door.

The Pine... really?

Who the hell wants a disc named after a tree? ...that's gotta be a bad omen for sure.
You know Innova now has a disc called "Bryce". Might as well be called Chad...
