Load them into cannons, load the cannons into bigger cannons, launch the cannons into orbit, then launch them back down into the Marianas Trench.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (06 December 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Load them both into cannons and fire them into orbit.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 05:19 PM)

We'll load Trump into the cannon and shoot ~him at~ Bieber. Problem solved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 04:08 PM)

Oh yeah, like I had enough left over for a safety net after buying the cannon. I work retail here!

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:12 PM)

so long as theres a safety net i can land in sure!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:09 PM)

Hey man, I didn't get this comically large cannon to NOT shoot somebody out ot it. So unless you're volunteering to take his place.....

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:02 PM)

cant we just shoot him, full stop??

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Can't we just like, shoot him out of a comically large cannon or something?

@  Paladin : (06 December 2016 - 02:59 PM)

first you agree to throw Justin Bieber out into the cold & let him freeze to death...

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:14 PM)

Say, give us all the Tim Horton's and about 700 kilos of Coffee Crisps and we'll take all the cold. How about it?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Well hey, let's not be hasty. Canada and the US are allies, we're all friends here on this board, maybe we can negotiate.

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 02:11 PM)

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 04:37 AM)

Well not any more I'm not.:(

@  Telly : (05 December 2016 - 07:59 PM)

There's been a thread in General (as well as some threads on other sites) about a potential credit card security problem that may have arisen from TCC's online transactions:
http://www.allspark....showtopic=84493

The Club released a statement in an email and over their social networks (though I can't seem to find a direct link):
QUOTE
We posted statements through various Social networks but I wanted to make sure, due to all the comments, that a statement was posted here as well...

Just to let everyone know, we upgraded our online security systems as we understand that credit card theft is a growing problem in the U.S. Online security is a serious business and Fun Publications takes it seriously. We have implemented an ongoing review process of these security systems so that as internet thieves become more sophisticated, so will our defense systems. If you have any concerns, please let us know. When you order from anyone on any kind of device, make sure that https starts the url. This means it is under a secure socket layer and is encrypted during transmission. Additionally all information in our database is encrypted under a 256K algorithm.

We have been following the talk regarding the fraud problems but we haven't confirmed how many, if any, were on our end. This upgrade was a precautionary measure. Fraud can come from many sources and it is difficult to determine with 100% certainty what happened in those cases. We are dedicated to solving any problems and will do whatever is necessary to make shopping with the Club a secure experience.

If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us 1-800-772-6673

We wanted to make sure people here were aware that there MAY be an issue with credit cards used at the Club's online store or for Botcon registration, and that it would be a good idea to keep an eye on your credit card statements for suspicious activity. If you find some, and you've bought anything from the Club in the past year or so, please report the issue to the Club to help them figure out if it's related to their services. They won't be able to help anyone if people don't report the issues to them directly.

I should mention the theft that happened in the first week of January. I ordered G2 Ramjet and a club membership last year. Come new years, someone tried using my credit card in Madrid.

My wife and I had no idea where it could have been from. We use the card, but internet-wise most payments were through paypal or with a few trusted companies like BBTS and Robot Kingdom.

You should still contact the Club to let them know about it so they can look into it. (Sorry, I can't recall if you said in the other thread whether you had or not.)

If you've not had any suspicious activity on your credit card statements, probably not? If it was that long ago, your credit card company is probably going to give you a new card soon anyway (if they haven't already). They're only good for a couple of years.

I do not, and I've been a member the whole time this has been unfolding. Still got it somewhere? Can you copy/paste to this thread?

Fortunately, the card I used for BotCon/member reg last year expired and has been replaced with a new date/security code, so I think I dodged the bullet.

That's exactly where and when my card, which I have used with the club, was compromised. A charge from EL CORTE INGLES MADRID ES posted to my account 03 January 2012.
