Jerry was in a Hospital bed wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth. "Nurse" he mumbles "are my testicles black?"
The nurse raises his gown, holds his penis in one hand and his balls in the other. She takes a close look and says, "There's nothing wrong with them sir."
Jerry pulls off the oxygen mask, smiles at her and says very slowly: "Thanks for that. It was lovely but listen very very carefully ... Are-my-test-results-back?!"
I've been here for nearly 11 years now....
Soon you'll all merge with the forums.
Man, some ebay prices are a bit screwed up atm. Needed an iPod battery and most of the cheap sellers were US, Canada and Germany (of all places ). Ended up paying a little under $0.50 more just to get something from China...
Basically Australia nearly always gets the highest rating compared to EU & NA for the shortest shipping time, although there are dedicated China sellers that cater for NA or EU that may use different warehouse locations to reduce time.
My experience is that it's unusual for stuff to arrive closer to the 2 week mark, it's usually a week but Christmas time always affects all shipping globally. Even with basic free post if something doesn't turn up by 30 days you get a free replacement no questions ask.
Stuff from NA is terrible. Basic post you still have to pay for it, stuff doesn't arrive or whatever they usually don't wanna hear about it. Express post costs a stupid amount and it still takes like a week anyway
I never buy anything from NA but I know people that do, and it's nothing but constant problems. But for the stuff they get there are few (or no) alternative sources.
Shipping from the US to most international countries is grotesquely priced now.
