From what I understand, a worldwide shortage of Unobtainium is delaying Bilstein shock orders. As soon as more meteorites fall and replenish the world's supply, you'll be in luck.

Yea... kinda wishing I didn't drop the money on them and just went with something else. I've been waiting for a while as well.

Damn thats what I was afraid of... So instead of contacting Bilstein, should I contact an astronomer or something? I mean I've watched all the episodes of The Universe and they didn't mention anything about Unobtainium. The only other place that contains that Unobtainium is the planet Pandora but we wont get there for another 137 year... So basically I'm pretty ****ed, huh...

An astrologist would be better, I read this morning Capricorns might be in line for "a rough ride over the next few weeks that smooths out after a few shocks"
