Agreed that the sleeves are short on the above.

The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic markets (though primarily upstate New York) have Wegmans. http://www.wegmans.com. It's the best grocery/supermarket store I've experienced. It's also consistently in Fortune's top 10 U.S. companies to work for (I think they were #1 a few years ago...). Based out of Rochester, NY I think they reach as far down as Pennsylvania or Maryland now. When I was living in Albany, I was pissed that there were no Wegmans around and I was forced to...

+1 what Conne said. A minor in history may not directly benefit your actual resume, but it will benefit your education. I picked up a dual major in history and French for my BA. Because of the history major, I gained a lot of critical analytical and research skills (scrutinizing sources, digging up primary information, sifting through volumes for what's important, making deductions, etc.). On top of that, I had to write a lot. It seemed like a bitch in college to...
Womanizer isn't too shabby. It's got a catchy tune.
+1 if it's on a private yacht. Someone around here must have one of those things hanging around, looking for a good excuse to get abused...
Yes, the 12x means a minimum of 12 times (magazines often require the issues to be consecutive or within a certain period of time to get that rate) to get that rate per ad. For the market penetration/reach/frequency that you can probably get with a publication like GQ, I don't think those rates are completely outrageous... just simply on the expensive side. You can pay a couple thousand for a single-issue full page ad in a local publication with a limited circulation, so...
Quote: Originally Posted by milosz So I forgot to enroll my Amex card when I got it a couple of years ago. Since then I've used it for about $10k worth of purchases - how pissed off should I be at myself? Could I have actually gotten anything worthwhile for $10k? I think 10k in points will get you about a $100 gift card. I have about 40k in points left sitting on mine. Every so often I usually clean out what points I have on gift cards to...
-1 on Tag. Every bozo this side of the Mason-Dixon owns one and thinks he's the shit because he owns a "high end watch." What you can get or should get really depends on your price range. If you go to some reputable used dealers you can often find some good prices on higher-end watches like IWC or JLC, for example. Shopping around and finding out what you like and don't like (and what sucks and doesn't suck) and what type(s) of watch(es) you need (sport, dress, casual?)...
Carry sufficient cash when you know you'll be in a group dining situation. There's eight ATMs per block these days so there's rarely an excuse (and I even hate carrying cash). Put your money in first. Assuming it's not an egregious shorting of the bill, and you get stuck being the one doing the counting, you might say something undertoned like "Hmm... the bill seems to be fairly short." If nobody suddenly volunteers more money, just pay the rest of the bill yourself...
