The Last Archimedean

I learned long ago to never have my mouth write a check my body can't cash.

These idiot crustys need to learn from the story of the lion and the bull. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and killed him.

The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.


Word on the credit card dispute not doing anything.

Fun facts: When you dispute a charge, it goes to the fraud department. Fraud's sole interest is determining whether or not you authorized the charge (hint: buying something, then getting pissed off at the company and changing your mind doesn't mean you didn't authorize the charge! Who knew?). If you did authorize it, you get advised to contact the merchant because it's officially not the bank's problem.

Bonus fun fact: Any disputed amount is taken off the credit card bill while the investigation is happening. If the charge is determined to not be fraud, it gets added back on with back-interest for however long it was being investigated (or, as I call it, "sweet, sweet justice").
