Off topic, but I just read this & am beyond flabbergasted - if any of you need a reason to NOT order from Dominos, ever, no matter how desperate/drunk/poor you are, please do read this.. it's unbelievable. Jeb Bush and 3 members of SCOTUS all involved/facilitate. wtf.

Can't imagine why they'd ever make it so tough to buy music. I went into a hobby shop and got followed around the whole place by a nervous-looking shopkeep. Honestly, they should sell over the Internet if they don't want to handle humans.

I lived in Florida for a short while. A pretty liberal and open minded city as far as Florida goes. I sort of liked the place. But i could feel the crazy seeping in from the rest of the state. Maybe Ave Maria should team up with the Scientologists in Clearwater and the theme park crowd. Burn it all down and start from scratch to create something massive.
