Cartoons - Scooby Ghost

The hard drive question reminded me, I bought an external hard drive this spring, then moved back to my hometown. Since being here, I have not found the hard drive anywhere. I have absolutely no clue where I would have packed it. I know I would have put it in something where it wouldn't be jostled around too much, as I did do a backup on my computer before I moved.

Where do you think my hard drive could be? Srs/non-srs welcome, maybe something will jog my memory :P

EDIT: Found it! At my old apartment, my computer and accessories sat on a wicker storage ottoman, so when I packed stuff up I wrapped the thing in bubble wrap, put it in a box, and put it in the ottoman, where it was left unpacked like all the other random junk in the ottoman. Thanks guys!

Social Media

I've been unemployed for quite a while and have been job hunting for months.
Some employers require just your CV and some ask that you do everything via their online application site.

I've noticed more and more that the online application sites are asking if you have social media accounts and what they are.   I understand it's a way for them to see who you are and what type of person you are before bringing you in, since information on your CV can be fluffed up BUT is this legal?

Obviously, I can say I don't have any and if they find me - oh well but they also make you e-sign saying all the information you've given them is accurate and I don't want to get a job and then be terminated cause they found my unmentioned twitter account  where I've tweeted "hate working today. wish i was napping"

I don't care if they have my facebook account and I know I can lock my instagram and twitter account but I also like that those two accounts are public for my friends who randomly check my feeds but choose not to have accounts. My twitter and instagram accounts aren't offensive and not under my full name but if you really wanted to find me, you could.

(if this makes no sense it's cause I'm trying to wean myself off of coffee)

I've got a partial sheet of oldish stamps. Help me decide whether to use them or try to sell them.

Unused 1977 US postage stamps, "Peace Bridge 1927-1977", $0.13 (13 cents). There are 45 of these on my partial sheet, with two showing damage to the gumming on back.

I know I can still use these as stamps, but do you think a dealer would be interested in paying more than face value?
