Just what we need, a limit on profit while government loots a trillion dollars a year.

That's the result of patent abuse and it needs to be addressed. 20 years has become far too long for some patents, a normal item like a key for a car is prime example. The problem is the tech evolves faster than the 20 years, by the time the patent expires it's no longer profitable for anyone. Many things especially in the tech industry should not even be patented at all, too many ridiculous things being patented. One of the points in the lawsuit of Apple Vs. Samsung was rounded corners on the icons. :roll:

I'd like to amend that law to include non-automated spammers as well.

Get an accomplice like a coworker not involved, set the trick up on them and make sure the jokers are all there waiting for it. Have your accomplice fall over with a fake heart attack. That'll fix 'em. :lol:

Anthony I'll ask my Brother for good one, he's a Federal fire fighter and he has to be at the firehouse for forty eight hours in a row and there is only 16 hours he's actually "at work" so you can imagine the shenanigans that go on there.

If you're going to paint a car black the primer should be black, not white. :x

Just polished my car, every little knick sticks out like a sore thumb.

I'll never buy a black car again. It looks great but forget about keeping it looking nice. It looked better before I buffed it. LOL

Is it all scratchy looking? Ebony is a product body shops use to make black cars look real good. Lasts quite a while too.

I don't think the original owner ever waxed it or took care of it, they put a quick coat on for sale. I know this because there was still some residue around the front bumper when I bought it.

I used a heavy duty cutting compound with the buffing wheel so the scratches are gone for the most part. There is few deeper scratches still in the clear I'm going to try wet sanding. Tested some polish and wax in small area and it looks great.

The problem is these little paint chips, I have this nice shiny black paint with the chips. The primer is white so they stick out like a sore thumb. I have touch up paint but there is lot of them, it's in a bottle. I think I'm going to get the pen for easy application. It's not terrible but there might be like a hundred of them all over the car in particular on the front part of the hood, you can't see them from a few feet away.

It should be against the law to paint over wallpaper...or any kind of shitty painting job that gets paint all over the trim. It has taken me 5 years to fix all of the painting disasters in my home from the previous owner.
