A friend of mine moved to another country and asked that a friend and i sell a sword, some knives, and a bunch of comic books for him, basically all in very good to excellent condition. We agreed, i waited, the friend never came through. So now, on a whim, i decided i had to take care of this already. While ebay shows me prices, it can be misleading and discouraging. So, i'm treading slowly.
Of the 4 knives, i'm not sure one of them is legal in my state. The other 3 seem fine:
Ummm... Don't buy stuff that doesn't do standards?
So what do you buy if zero of the brands in the store near you do standards? Wait until you have $35 of other stuff and then wait another week or two for Super Saver Shipping?
Um...yeah, that's exactly what you do. Aside from the cost of gas and sales tax probably eating your savings on shipping, "gotta have it now" is a privilege for which you have to pay the piper...in this case, by getting crappy kit.
Besides which, if you planned your deployment thoroughly, instead of buying it piecemeal, you'd probably be over the $35 threshold anyway.
And how would these parents have proven that the drug was to blame? Who would've forced the company to provide samples or hand over data?
The courts. It's called "Discovery." Requests for Production generally have to be complied with.
Backed up the system lately?
