Bidness vs. Business

No.

Incorrect. This is obvious in how the suit sits on the body. When the top button is undone it hangs incorrectly and you picture provides perfect evidence of that. Three buttons, do up the top two only.

Leaving the top button undone is only for more casual three button suits with soft lapels. Your tradiational pinstrip is certainly not that.

Leading market indicators

If they can predict flu outbreaks with google searches, I bet you can predict recessions and rebounds as well. Now we just have to figure out what people will be searching for as the economy turns around. My guess is "Hookers n' Blow".

Canadian Online stock broker

Check the hidden fees. Chances are if you are starting out you will be buying a couple stocks and holding for a while. Thus the trading costs are minor compared to account fees (eg: etrade can be $50 per quarter). Make sure you do the entire math on the deal, not just trading price.

Unless you are trading at high volume, Action Direct will be ~$29 per trade.

Pick the Presidential Pooch

Goldendoodles are a bit of a crap shoot because you can get lucky and have one that looks like a retriever and never sheds. However it is just as likely to look like an ugly poodle and shed like a retriever. Personally, as a retriever owner, not a fan, but they would make a great rescue dog becuase you would know what you are getting.

Bicycle Industry Death Watch

The industry is in a pretty good position right now it seems. Many folks in the industry say the bike biz is largely recession-proof. I hope that's the case. We'll see I guess.

I can't see the bike industry could be recession proof, unless people are going to be hit so hard bikes become a primary means of transportation. In my mind, most bikes are a luxury item, and one of the first item I would be forced remove from my budget.

I think the real answer will come in the Spring of 09, when after possibly three quaters of negative growth, bikes see diminsihed sales in their new lines.

How much milk can a person drink in an hour.

The geologists at ubc thought it would be a great idea to hold a milk drinking contest one year. I know it sounds retarded, though admittedly it was more original than the engineers 40 beers in 24 hrs.

I think the race was to see who could drink a 4L jug fastest, not who could drink the most milk. The problem with milk is when you drink it and it starts to digest it draws a lot of blood to your core. Those who tried to guzzle it fast got the chills, then nausea, then puked it all up. The guy who won (the only guy to drink the whole jug) took his time and drank slowly, around 45-50min. I think he puked it all up too.

Real smart… hope you don't have to drink it yourself J kwon. I would not bet on much more than 4L.

I have competed in this event. I did not finish. It was not pretty.

As a rule, if you need to shave the back of your hands, chances are a celebrity isn't going to be your girlfriend.
