    I would write the funniest ad you can, I would emphasize that he is a solid citizen who can take a joke, and as your lead image, I would dress him up in the most ridiculous costume you can put...

    On the first video, the penalties hardly matter because of the stop right after. And, there's even the possibility that the pin breaking caused the stop. I'm glad the pin dropped but I see no value...

    Saline solution for contact lens wearers - the plain kind. It's great for irrigating wounds and very squirtable.

    I don't consider liberal arts impractical in the least, but I do consider $50k/yr expenses pretty impractical for your typical family, and I think so no matter what you are studying. That's more than...
