Re: A380 emergency landing in Singapore after engine failure

Similar circumstances but, this much less devistating results as when the United Airlines flight 232 DC-10 crashed in Sioux City, Iowa In 1989.

Re: Customer Service

One of the reasons Walmart has been so successful is, if you had bought something that was defective, they would take it. Even if you bought it from someplace else. In that case, they wouldn't give money back but, would give store credit.

Re: For concerned Parents....

No, I didn't. But, I have seen very few smokers that were less concerned about getting their nicotine fix than being considerate to the people around them. Particularly, when in their own domain (vehicle or house).
