I don't doubt, I know that you don't understand me. But I have no negative feelings towards you.

I have yet to meet somebody like that, but I know they exist, and I know they're not just trying to get something out of it. They're really serious.

I can't believe this thread has 18 pages over a possible shipment.

Why is 5Cheese always involved?

I just got done parting out my old rig via UPS They round everything up to the extreme. Doesn't matter if it's 1.1 or 1.9; it's costing you the 2lb price.

Really, I'm tried of arguing with you. Go put it in their calculator and see for yourself: http://postcalc.usps.gov/

Ok, that's cool. As long as I know that I can't convince you that I really do understand this time (as in, I sometimes have trouble with understanding people, but not with things like this), then I'm not going to spend anymore time trying to do so.

What you said is very easy to understand. But we were saying that when the total weight is just a hair over a pound, they charge you the price of a 2lb shipment just the same way cell phone companies charge 2 minutes for 1 minute and 1 second.

18? Wow. I got 5.

And I'm involved because I made a choice. And to be honest, I am kinda regretting that choice.

Oh HE77 yeah, if my fries are shorted, damn real I'm gonna get what I paid for. It's like ordering a 10 pc. McNugget meal and only getting 9 pcs. It's like going to a movie and ordering a Large Popcorn and only getting a bucket that is ¼ to ½ full. Where's the justice in that? It's MY money and I am going to get what I am paying for!

And I think that goes without saying that Corporations "don't believe in Jesus". Dude, with as corrupt as 99% of businesses are, it's absolutely clear that they hate God, or rather, they don't believe there is any sort of Creator.

That's about as silly as saying "WATER IS WET!!!"
My physical well-being is a direct function of money, so while I was not physically harmed during the interaction, the taking of money from me does harm me. In a court of law, such an action (money taking) is the basis of a tort damages law suit as much as direct physical harm. That is why if you, as a non-Christian company, poison a town with industrial waste, the town's recourse from physical harm is monetary. Our Judeo-Christian derived legal system sees a high degree of interchangeability between money and harm.

It is not "just" money, as any poverty stricken bloke will tell you, especially if he's got children.

My point with the corporation is this: an honest, Christian woman did me monetary harm at the behest of her company; render unto Caesar what is his, eh? This is the feature of our modern age, for those who study their scripture: Wal-Mart is our Caesar. Rome is the mall. And if Caesar sends you a video card, then it was Caesar's to give, as it was Caesar's would take. If you don't get that, I'd rather PM about it.

This is what is often misunderstood about Nietzsche. When Nietzsche said, "God is dead" in the Genealogy of Morals, he did not mean god was literally dead. Nietzsche was a devout Christian in his youth, and prized the categorical imperative above all else, as 5Cheese does. He wrote "God is dead" when he saw that the majority of Christians around him did NOT obey god, and took restocking fees that were morally incorrect, or whatever it was. People saying they were Christian, taking all the protection of Christ, but sinning offensively, living without him in their actions. Wal-Mart does the same thing: they offer a distinctly Christian culture in their products and advertising, and yet they are totally without Christ in their actions and deeds, especially when it comes to MONEY.

What is Caesar's...
