Who wears laced with their dress shoes?

Lol.

Italian shoes are effeminate and you shouldn't wear them.

So UPS brought this today...



Why did the company who shipped it use a box that is 5-6 times larger than necessary?  Not that it cost me anything [extra], it's just strange is all... ???

If Verizon only made the 300/150 cheaper...

Dude that is crazy. What is the price for 150?

My ping is better! Around 10ms.  :)

Ping is rather inaccurate on that site. I get about 5ms or lower in real world tests.

You get lots of pizza shipped to you, Mor?  :D

No, I rarely eat from pizza franchises like Papa John's, Domino's, or Pizza Hut, but they're the only type of business I've seen with such "progress meters".

I get a moderate amount of books shipped to me, but I do not eat them.   
Mor has an open appeal. This we knew already.

Mor suffers from Invincible Ignorance and is guaranteed salvation according to the Roman Catholic Church.
