| O-T Lounge|| re: The Last Time The Price Of Oil Crashed Like This? - Helo on 12/22/14 at 4:44 pm|

I don't know if it makes you a pos but the servers take time to prepare your food so I always tip. If you order from the same place often that extra tipping can make sure your food is done correctly and sometimes I get extra sides.
I got a free order of crab Rangoon from my Thai place a couple ...

Are you sure they were disenfranchising you or could you be overacting?

I go to great lengths to buy American.
If not available or in the quality I want, I look to Germany or other euro countries or Japan.

If you are listening in an area with acoustics that warrant it, you can run digital coax through your receiver and just use SONOS as the source. It decodes .flac which is what I listen to...
