I've seen many instances where the lab billed 10x the amount the HI paid after discount. A law mandating HC providers bill the same amount for the same service to all customers would get rid of...

I tried a roll to blind at Terminus last month because the height of the cable and the length of the ropes gave me a lot of confidence. Got it on video, but in the spirit of the thread I will get...

Not really "by my definition" anymore than the sky is blue by my definition. I'll give you an example... RC racing is not a sport because it doesn't involve any physical exertion. Now I suppose you...

Sorry Doug, but you didn't answer the question about why you claim it is not a sport. You answered why you don't consider it a sport, but that isn't what I asked. Wakeboarding is a sport... period....
