That's because volume and clearance processing. AFAIK US only will transport mail to 3 clearing locations in Canada and the UK on the other hand dont' give a damn once the mail left their country.

Anyone know what model those new electronic dart machines that are popping all around Richmond are? Looking to see if they are affordable.

If not, could anyone recommend me some nicer looking electronic dart machines?

I don't know if anyone drives around the cambie and broadway area. But there has been a few times where I see a few police officers hiding behind the starbucks on cambie. I believe they try to catch people who turn right onto cambie southbound from broadway. I do not see any "no right turn" signs so I can't figure out what they are trying to catch. Anybody have any ideas?

Anyone have experience with transferring ticketmaster tickets?

I want tickets to a concert that's sold out. I'm buying more than one ticket so I'll be giving a person off craigslist a large amount of cash. I don't want to get screwed -- is there any way for them to transfer me the ticket that ensures they're 1) Valid, and 2) they won't be able to take them back once I pay for them?

Thanks in advance, Revscene.

Perhaps try to meet at a ticketmaster location to verify authenticity?

Yep, most department stores will have flasks. I got mine at the now defunt Zellers.

Honestly...you rarely use the thing. I've had mine for 2 years? used it less than 5 times? The opening to pour is a pain, you need a funnel.

got mine at duty free coming back from the states. Cost me $10 but I rarely use it.

Agree that it is a pain in the ass to fill and needing a funnel.
