Since the insurance rates will go up by $0.10 per tube to help offset this claim, so maybe feel bad for everybody?
Fixed. And blame falls on USPS for their rates going up.

About damn time.
You're gonna be disappointed: the truth is, Awesome's starting an investigative series wherein he applies his considerable sleuthing skills to uncovering the true identity of HeatHunter.

I hear it has a twist ending.
You guys didn't hear? Me and Scott are best friends now! I am pretty close to finding out who HeatHunter is also, but it might take some time.

Guess I was just so excited about consuming cow on a Monday, and forgot to chew fully. I learned that while my wife doesn't know the Heimlich, she can Hulk-smash the fudge out of my back.

But I also blame the canadian and/or US post for this incident.

Better uninsured? Why? Goes through quicker or something?

One time I had a guy write "DO NOT DAMAGE DO NOT BEND", etc...like 100x obnoxiously over the tube. Think it pissed off USPS and they damaged it, lol. That was a while back, though.
Not saying it works 100%. It has worked everytime for me though..But declaring a value of 20 bucks or so goes right through customs.

It's $10, and it definitely gets things thru customs right away.

Wow, I'm sorry for Billy. Hope the insurance claims process goes smoothly.

I think this was the first time your beautiful pictures didn't convince me to buy something.

Glad that you are okay, after previous incidents I always chew a mouthful of food at least 20-30 times slowly unless it's something that's really soft and goes down softly. Steak sometimes sucks because I have to really stop what I am doing and make sure that is all chewed up before swallowing, I can't be distracted.
