Best scams you've seen/heard about?
Any tips for detecting a scam?
Inspired by the well dressed young man who asked me for four euro (just over $5) for bus fare to a nearby town because his friends had deserted him the night before, and he had no money, and somehow his mother would be there to pay the bus driver but the bus drivers wouldn't let him on the bus without paying, throwing in that he's a carpenter in that town, and lots more irrelevant details that I can't even remember because he spoke so fast.
for me it's inception and most blockbuster movies lol. all the action, scenery, actors, dialogue, etc. are so distracting and i end up just thinking about the filming process and forget to pay attention to the actual story.
So I have decided that I need to live a healthier lifestyle, because while I am not at an unhealthy weight yet, I am slowly but consistently gaining weight (where before it was more fluctuation). I don't want to diet, but I do want to have a healthy diet, and I barely know what that entails. I am a very open minded eater, which means I like pretty much most things out of every food group, so it's not like I don't already eat things that are healthy. But menu planning, building well balanced meals, etc -- it just seems like there is SO MUCH information out there and none of it is well organized. Questions:
1) Is there one, reliable resource you have used? Especially for those of you who do meal planning in advance.
2) I am thinking about seeing a nutritionist, does this make any sense? Will individualized information help me or will it all be obvious stuff I could have googled? Does anyone have experience with nutritionists for general assistance (as opposed to disorders, allergies, etc)?
If you do keep track how do you keep track if you use the same towel the next day?
see I live with my parents. My Mom doesn't like R rated stuff. She gets all eeww blood, gah the bad language, gah sex.
However my Dad and I LOVE stuff like Dexter, Game of Thrones (only one episode of season 3 left) I got him to watch Berserk movie 1. Stuff about serial Killer cases ect. we had recently seen Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter LOVED IT.
So since my Mom is out of town. We want to watch a TON of R rated stuff. HOWEVER we ran out of stuff to watch. WE CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING. so got any recommendations of stuff on netflix?
I got to say were not into 'horror'. By Horror I mean stuff like "I know what you did last summer" or "paranoid activity" those kinds of things. I like zombie flicks but my Dad not so much.
We both like action, fantasy, sci fi, serial killers, thrillers. We had recently watch Alien and Aliens. That was awesome.
he likes the Resident Evil movies...I think gah the games are better. but I will watch them with him. I don't think the newer ones are on netflixs?
*edited* The Last of Us for ps3 comes out June 14? I think. So hopefully we will get that.
You'll receive a check for $10,000, but in accepting the check, a larger check for $50,000 goes to a certain charity/organization. You have some say over which group gets the check, but it's limited to only these groups. Which organization would you allow to get the 50k check?
You can have the check divided amongst any number of groups
What would you do if you walked into a room at work and caught two of your coworkers having sex?
- are <$120-ish
- would match ok with grey and black
- are closed-toe since I have to wander into the lab at the hospital I work at....
- don't have ridiculous heels
- are relatively comfortable
dk/dc/hate shoes: what's up? I'm bored.
Only requirements are that it cannot be too messy (she already vetoed biscuits and gravy), and should be able to travel ~20 minutes from my parent's house to my grandmother's house. I can heat things up there if I have to.
Background: I'm very good friends with the couple, they're laid-back and nerdy, the wedding color is purple. I am also trying to hide a tattoo on my arm so I liked the long sleeves.
What do you typically wear to weddings? Pics preferred
So, the question is, what on earth can my wife buy for her 6-month old niece, that has some kind of Catholic/Christian significance but won't be completely ignored or unrespected by the neice/her parents? For example, a very nice bible or a cross necklace would be obvious choices but she does not want to spend money on something that the kid won't use, or won't take seriously. Anybody been in a similar situation or have suggestions?
