I concur with the other gentlemen and their replies, but I would add that when you do try wines at tastings, insist that the person pouring does tell you the price until after you have tasted everything. The price will influence your…"
"I broadly define shaking hands as a sign of respect/trust/cooperation/professionalism. You do it when you want to make someone see you are open to them and confident in yourself. It's a first-impression mechanism.
I can obviously see you want…"
"My general technique for any exam is to study the material in earnest starting at least the week before (depending on the quantity/difficulty of the subject material). I've never ceased to be amazed how well I can learn stuff by studying in…"
"You'd be better off asking this question to some of your female friends, as men can never really tell you what a woman thinks/wants.
As a young man also on the lookout for what could be a long-term relationship, here's what I can tell you…"
Hello everyone.I'm in the middle of my college career, studying for a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and this last semester I've really tried to pin down what I want to do after graduation. One field that has consistently popped up is the marine industry. I'd really like to find a career near the water where I can work on the design, manufacture, and maintenance of watercraft (preferably sailing yachts).There are two big hurdles in my way, though. 1) I am from Kansas and only really became…See More
"Same as the above said, it's a pretty variable number. If you're doing an analysis on some article another person wrote, you probably won't have to read much beyond the article in question before you can write about it. On the other…"
"Peace corp, red cross, reporter, salesman, flight attendant, researcher...
Even if it's not the Navy, becoming a seaman of any sorts will let you travel and meet people. Particularly if you go into the sailing world as opposed to powered, you…"
"The metaphor was thought up on the spot, so I hope it wasn't the main thing you took from my post.
You are the volunteer worker, the soup kitchen is some Earthly cause, and God is the soup-supplier. God's reach goes beyond the "soup…"
"Let me briefly premise that I am speaking mostly from my personal experience/reasoning at this point, so please take all of this with a grain of salt. I was raised as a rather casual Christian, so I am in need of refreshers on my Bible…"
"I've never really liked telling people/being told we are unworthy of God's love. God created us with love so we could love him, and we betrayed his love with sin, so it is true. But to me that's focusing on the problem rather than the…"
"Jesus' sacrifice didn't give everyone a free pass from sin and thus an excuse to do whatever we feel like on Earth. Pre-Christ, the Jews were God's chosen people, but were still separated from Him by sin (including after death). Jesus…"
"I see your parallel between my argument vs. yours. Yes, Jesus is part of God, and therefore without sin. At the same time, Jesus was human, and therefore capable of sin. It seems contradictory, but my best answer is that Jesus embodied God on…"
"You hit it on the head, Ken. Jesus had free will and was tempted just like the rest of us. His ability to hold true to God's love and will was an example for all of us to follow, if we so choose. Yes, it is human nature to consider sin,…"
"I know Satan is a fallen angel who was jealous of God/thought he was better, but beyond that you've hit one of the walls on my Biblical knowledge.
I guess since Satan did it first then he did make sin, but humans brought it to the world by…"

"We've been through this. Limited source and un-cross examined eyewitness testimony, without corroborating other evidences, written second and third hand decades later, from a fan club (aka party with vested interest in a particular…"
"No one knows how to handle it when it happens, Max. I sat and watched my father go down to lung cancer almost seventeen years ago, and it is still with me. I had time to prepare myself for the inevitable, but in the aftermath I…"
"For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, and…"
"It seems so shallow and inadequate to say "my condolences" or "I'm sorry". I lost my mother when I was 13 (heart trouble)--thought I'd never get over that), and I lost my dad around 20 years ago (cancer), plus…"
