Re: Dentist wanting to move from UK to FL

Good news that you know what visa you're eligible for!

...just a pity it doesn't actually exist.

Care to enlighten us on what visa you actually think you'll be coming over on?

Re: Taking 27" iMac to USA

Yeah, but the OP is saying that (understandably) they don't want to be without their computer for as long as it will take to ship their other belongings.

Re: Taking 27" iMac to USA

I can't imagine who I would trust to ship an iMac from the UK to the US. Any of the reputable shipping companies (UPS, FedEx etc.) can get the package here, but I wouldn't hold out high hopes of it...

Why does he have "zero chance of a H1B"?

If he's even being looked at by Apple for an interview then he must be interesting to them. If they choose to sponsor him for an H1B then his recent...

Re: Automatic or Manual (stick shift)

I understand all the arguments for only having manual transmission on a performance car... but most of them are now outdated.

Better performance? Automatic (well, strictly DCT) BMW M3s are quicker...

Re: How not to celebrate the 4th!

Re: Quick question regarding car servicing and courtesy cars

Oddly, the biggest BMW dealership in America (Classic BMW in Plano, TX) doesn't offer courtesy cars.

But then they're a total bunch of stupid, lying, cheating, inept, incompetent, disdainful,...

Re: What's your job title/sector?

I watch you when it's very, very dark.

And if I told you my job title, sadly, I'd have to kill you.

Re: Help - How to get ink out of leather??

Yikes!

Stop. Clearly the things you're trying have only made it worse.

Don't use the magic eraser. Amazingly, it's not actually magic, and won't work AT ALL for your bag. It's a very mild...

Oh, we couldn't agree more. But that was the angle the article was pushing, so that's how it was edited. First and foremost Ali is a fine artist and an oil painter... but the #draw365 iPad project...

I agree with the responses you've had. Don't confine yourself to DFW if you want UK/US knowledge and experience.

Re: What I do... and a lion!
