    I have zero evidence or facts or anything, but I imagine that this is what the lawsuits about @DevinsCow are about. Here's Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and someone in an Intelligence agency released a hint of the kompromat to the @DevinsCow author. (Whomever) publishes, and now Devin, with the wrath of a woman scorned, is on a mission to find out who dared try to blackmail him. Devin! The single most powerful congressman with the power of budget over ALL USA Intelligence Agencies and a stalwart champion of all things snooping, and they have the gall to threaten him?

    Oooh. Someone's gonna pay.

    Besides, it's a national security problem if some intelligence agents are just running around leaking people's kompromat.

    First though, we have to find out who that person is. Lawsuits commence!

    Re: Re: Perhaps they do intend to one day open "for real" in Aus

    I believe that the way the law plays out is that they would be forced into a choice: 1) Pick a different name for their stores, or 2) License their name from the company that claimed the name on Australian soil first or 3) Completely buy out the company that claimed the name on Australian soil first. The last two options have two problems: 1) What if the company that that claims the name on Australian soil first actually sucks? The new venture into Australia would start at a disadvantage because of poor reputation. 2) The price could be exorbitant. "You want the name In-N-Out? Five Million Dollars!" Compare the cost of setting up the pop up restaurant for a few hours every few years to the potential cost of buying a license (or buying out the whole chain) and the pop-up restaurant is an obvious choice.

    Wire for the nose bridge?

    I can't tell if these masks come with the piece of wire inside the top edge that that let's one mold the mask over the bridge of the nose.
