"Look for electronic versions of the books instead, either legitimately on Google Books, or sketchily on Bit Torrent.  Look for a freight forwarder with reasonable prices.  "

International shipment fees on Amazon.com are killing me.

Hey guys, I'm having a little problem that I hope you could help me solve. First of all, thank you for bothering to read the thread and allow me to explain my situation. I want to purchase a few books which are not available in my country (Poland) off of Amazon.com but sadly, the delivery cost equals the value of bought items. It goes up to $200 which is a hell of a money for me, especially considering half of it is for the shipment alone.Now my question to you is this: do you know any other…See More

Separation in a fresh relationship

I'm trying to be a kind of guy who doesn't wallow in his problems and tries to take everything as it is, but I'm having a hard time dealing with something right now.I've just entered a relationship with a girl almost two months ago and it's my first. We were doing great, I feel we really understand each other, she fascinates me, I feel really happy with her and she tells me she feels the same way. Problem is, three weeks ago she left for work in a foreign country and we have been seperated ever…See More

Any advice for selling a collection?

I accrued a collection of Star Wars memorabilia and knick knacks during my childhood and teenage years. It's not really cataloged, and is only taking up space in boxes in a garage right now. I'm considering selling it but have never sold anything sizable like this before (probably in the neighborhood of 350 various pieces – action figures to art prints).Anyone sold a collection before that can offer some advice? Should I try to sell it all at once, and if that's the case would I take it to an…See More

Teachers' Club (for men in Education)

Virtual staff room for visionary teachers of every discipline. This is a good place for educators to discuss their collective role in society--particularly in regards to their duty as role models for young men. What does it mean to be a male role model for young boys in the classroom? How can we serve them best? See More
