The customer service agents remain to be very sketchy about their policy on the estimated arrival dates, or their definition of "estimated shipping window". If you're a very patient and understanding person, and wants to buy products cheaply, then it still might be worthwhile. They're operating as if they're also a victim of COVID-19, so I'm done with them for now. A couple bucks you might be able to save for potentially crappy bootleg items aren't worth the hassle you have to go through to get them.


Iggie, anything you need lmk and I’ll make sure it’s made in Seattle.

Yes, but it’s one of many anti-chalm sites. Nothing to buy unless you want this shirt:

With that said trained fighters will most likely beat the crap out of any NBA players with very little resistance.

When NBA players fight, it looks comical to even casual fans of fighting sports. And it should look like a slow motion kitty fight for professional fighters.

Finished watching Daredevil and Punisher; pretty bomb.

Foggy one cold MF, and that 'I am the ill intent' line from Fisk- oof. They seem due at least one more season.

Punisher was surprisingly good too, wasn't expecting to like it much. Madina kinda looks like a middle Eastern version of the young prototype(Phylicia Rashard), um, yes wood. Interesting dynamic to the usual moralistic superhero/villain story

I was looking for something interesting to watch on Netflix and those were ones goodboy recommended here a few years ago IIRC.

didn't disappoint though it took me to the dark place so I'm mostly sticking with Japanese animes with disproportionate boobs using swords and magic now

Watching this show on Netflix called History 101. They mention in Episode 3 that China accounts for 85% of counterfeit goods and the 4th largest of those goods is counterfeit sportswear. When the NBA is selling jerseys for $240, I get why people want to buy counterfeit. People buying jerseys (mostly) aren’t looking to resell like someone would an unopened comic book, they just want to wear a jersey supporting the team. Am I missing something?

Not missin' much, the directives under law:

Nike's lawfully able to charge you a gazillion times what it cost to make one jersey as it is their product, and you'd be stealing from their profitability by buying an unsanctioned variant

Not illegal to buy, per se, just to sell. We steal from the league when we watch streams anyway, midas whale :dontknow: line between right and wrong is demarcated around criminalization most of the time anyway, if they can charge you a dick for a meh product, you got some kind of right to other means of service
