Down with Facebook!

Een humoristisch stukje over een Facebook weigeraar. Citaat: "So I'm not inflexible. But there is one promise I've made to myself. And that is that no matter how long I live, no matter how much pressure is exerted, no matter how socially isolated I become, I will never, ever join Facebook". De auteur van dit artikel schrijft over zijn acceptatie van nieuwe fenomenen. Zo te zien is hij geen "early adopter". Pas als de trend bijna over is begint hij er aan. Niet erg. Waar hij echt een grote "mega hekel" aan heeft is Facebook met zijn fake vrienden. Dat slaat volgens hem nergens op. Iemand nodigde hem uit tot deze community toe te treden. "Attached to his invitation, intended to shame me out of nonparticipation ("Resistance is futile, join the Borg," he wrote), was a link to a piece Manjoo had just written, tauntingly entitled "You Have No Friends--Everyone else is on Facebook. Why aren't you?" Dit was echter niet de juiste benadering voor iemand die toch al skepticus was. En: "Whether or not you intend it, you're saying something by staying away". Enfin, zo gaat het nog wel even door, het is een vrij lang artikel. Voer voor skeptici, humoristisch tijdverdrijf voor de rest. U neemt dit toch niet serieus?

Wash your curly hair at the very least two days in a week.

As natural products don't have any side-effects, you can rest assured for healthy hair. A well groomed woman will look to her hair and makeup first and a poll of 3,000 females across the UK revealed that about 44% feel attractive if they are having a good hair day, this compares to 16% who felt pleased with their appearance if good teeth gave them that winning smile.

yards. The estimate you receive will be based on the number of skips you need,
what size skip you want, and how long you plan to keep it.

Read your warranty carefully, and you'll see that it probably doesn't cover walls with efflorescence.

If you have a Jewel crafting or a jewel crafter friend. The more vulnerable the global economy
looks, the greater the demand for gold and silver.

A large number of workers, particularly in the professional occupations, will become eligible for retirement in the coming
years, and some companies may have trouble coping with the loss of many experienced workers to
retirement at a time when the industry is expanding production on dryer machine and ball mill machines.

New simulators are on average produced every second month and some are highly expensive.
Even recommended system specs had difficulties coping with the games demands
on first launch when flying over the more substantial town locations.
The latest version, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, is produced by Atari and
can be purchased at most retail outlets. If you are running your simulator for commercial purpose and there are people playing with their own
golf clubs, ask them to wipe their clubs with a
wet clean piece cloth. 3) Physical parameters: The simulators are almost real, but actually
they are on the ground, I mean around the sea level.
