Do you know of any hotel that DOESN'T have a telephone, and if so, how would we call them to make a reservation ?

There are sometimes instances where some fields MUST be filled in, otherwise the whole record becomes worthless.

A dummy phone number won't let you make a reservation. Actually, a blank field indicates that a record is incomplete. A field containing garbage, is also incomplete, except you cant detect it programmatically, at least not as easily as looking for blank fields.

Better than the Chevy 2.8L transverse V6 I suppose. The section of the shop manual for replacing spark plugs starts with: "Unbolt the dogbone and engine mounts and rotate the engine forward". Yes, to replace the sparkplugs you're supposed to unbolt the fucking engine from the car.

Sounds like a well designed vehicle. That's that "Chevy" company that you're talking about? I'd be interested in investing in it.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
