Why don't you cancel that auction and use the money to gift me a Expeditioner Yak? ^_^

Nope. Auction already ended and I got stuck with it. Considering I have 1.4 million gold, spending 90k its not that bad... I could prolly have more gold if I hadnt been lazy this expansion in the actual AH.... =P

I'll prolly get the gold back within 2 months.

I actually prefer that belt to the "BiS" option. I'm well past the point where I need the hit or expertise, so I'd rather have the haste/mastery version than the exp/crit one. It's only BiS based on the raw numerical power of exp; if you value hit and expertise properly (i.e. as the next most valuable stat once you're easily capped with the rest of your gear) then it falls behind.

On topic: I'm slightly amused to see so-so raiders trying to get into the big heroic raiding guilds, when they weren't assed to get decent attendance numbers and average performance.

Pass the popcorn, this is going to be fun.

Wev'e also got a certain Resto Druid applying at the 3rd hordeside guild. Whose name might just be appropriate for what's going to happen...

I ditto that sentiment. It hasn't happened this expansion (to my knowledge), but I had to laugh when I unearthed an application to the leading raid guild on our server back in Wrath and referred to his current raid leader (me) as "unfair". Coming from a guy whose attendance was dismal, his dps was shoddy and overall just not a very good played... I had to laugh.

I think I'm pretty easy to detect, I either talk about JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Ponies or the NFL -- oh, and passive aggressive tweets to GC. =P

It amuses me because one of the first prototypes had to make an emergency landing in Laredo some years ago due to, you guessed it, smoke due to faulty electrical system.

The only thing missing from the Dreamliner fiasco is the lack of of square windows and punch rivets.

Seriously, the whole problem with the Nightmareliner came from the pencil pushers and board members at Boeing. Let's bypass the Union as much as we can. Lets give out the manufacturing contracts to other companies in other countries. Japan, China and Indonesia get to built different sections. Avionics and Flight Control to Germany, Italy and France. Let's ferry all these parts back to Everett and assemble them there.

And for all that, you get sections with misaligned holes, fuselage sections that varied in size by as much as two inches, delaminated sections that couldn't even be used and had to be scrapped, alloy parts that were the wrong alloy or flat-out counterfeited, and untraceable inspection stamps that didn't seem to belong to anyone.

Hooray!

It isn't like it is impossible to build aircraft parts in different locations and assemble them, look at Airbus, who has been building aircraft in multiple locations for decades (for example the Concorde was built in France and Britain, the A380 double-decker is built in Britain, France, Germany and one other country that I can't remember).

Yeah, it's possible. But Boeing fumbled the whole thing from the start.

And Airbus has more experience dealing with subcontractors than Boeing, and uses a stricter standard -- Boeing, in this case was going for the whole bottom dollar deal, it seems.

Although all this is just extra fuel to the battery/electrical problems they've been having.

I kind of expect the dreamliner being to boeing what the dc-10 was to mcd

My suggestions are mostly just writers and publishers - probably because I follow a bunch of them, and only follow one wow-related account (GC).
