I'll add to your list, AdBlock Plus shows no "acceptable ads" once you uncheck the "show acceptable ads" box. I see no problem with this, nor with it being the default position.

What business is it of yours if other people don't mind viewing certain types of ads?

Bleach doesn't work every time.
Bleach, alcohol, etc. need to be applied at specific concentrations for a specific period of time to be effective.
If you don't follow these procedures, all you do is breed stronger shit.

Some retard is lining up right now to say "NOOOOOOOO THEY NEVER BECOME RESISTANT TO BLEACH OR ALCOHOL!!!!".
Plenty of organism have on outer wrapper, or "skin", to protect them from hostile environments. Many micro organisms wall off and go dormant until the coast is clear and then come back. So fuck off with that theory, please.

Bleach doesn't work every time. Not even fire does. However, I suspect what happened here was a simple case of places not being cleaned properly (or at all) because the building owners / maintenance people were cheap / lazy.

Submission Women who Love too much: 4 ways to Capture his heart->

Donna Bebe writes: So if you’re a woman who loves your man too much, what are the things that you can do for him to reciprocate your feelings? Or if you are the type who has the tendency to be obsessed with a man, how can you be in a healthy relationship and finally meet you’re Mr Right?These are the questions that women who love too much asks every time. Although they seem really complex and difficult, there are actually a few things that we can begin doing or practicing to get the lifetime partner we desire. And it all begins with ourselves.

Here are 4 easy, realistic ways to capture his heart and make him love you forever.

1. Analyze yourself. Your traits and attitude towards men in general.Face the mirror and ask yourself, are you desirable? If your answer is No, then your answer is Incorrect. Ask yourself the same question over and over until your answer becomes a YES. Because you are indeed desirable. The problem for women who love too much or at least for those who thinks they are, is the big word Confidence. We tend to cling to men because we feel that nobody else will love us when they leave us. Little did we know that they leave us because we push them away with our possessive attitude. No man would want to be with a girl who thinks they are ugly

One trick that I learned from a former colleague is to face the mirror as soon as you wake up in the morning. Tell yourself YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL several times until you really feel beautiful with your messy hair, hanging eyebags, puffy cheeks, pale skin, bad breath Imagine if you can feel beautiful with this look then no other look or situation can mess up your attitude towards the day. DO this and notice change.

2. Analyze the traits of the man you desire. His education level, his likes, and basically what will take him to look up from his phone and take a good look at you.

What does he do? What are his hobbies? His family background? Is he the macho or sensitive type? Is he closer to his mom or dad? You might think I am kidding but this is really important. My husband is closer to his dad than his mom. Good thing his dad puts his family first that’s why my husband is the family man that he is. I believe this is an important question as it might also make you rethink on the man that you want now compared to the ideal man that you want to spend the rest of your life with. This will also make you in a sense “adjust” your values, your hobbies, your likes with him. If he likes watching basketball like my husband, then you might want to read/research on basketball stuff. If he’s a gamer, you might want to install the same game app in your phone. Sometimes you must meet him halfway without changing yourself completely.

3. Show him you need him while keeping your independence.

  The YinYang of a woman in a relationship. How to do this exactly is the biggest question. I came to know this after I begin to notice that my guy friends marry single mothers. What is it with single mothers? One, they have a child/children who completes their being. In short, they don’t need a man who can complicate things. So they are very, very independent. But then someone nice will come along. Maybe a guy who accepts her, her situation and her children. And so her happy ever after has arrived.A woman must be independent enough to identify herself as an individual apart from the one she loves too much. And yet make him know that her life would be more meaningful when he’s on it.


Make him realize that you “complete him”. Only YOU. This is the last advice that I have, and this is also the easiest. Being a woman who love too much, this will come naturally for you. I assume that when you say that you love a guy too much means that your favorite song is Cater to you by the Destiny’s Child eh? If you don’t know it then this is part of the lyrics:

“Let Me Help YouTake Off Your Shoes
Untie Your Shoestrings
Take Off Your CufflinksWhat You Want To Eat Boo?
Let Me Feed YouLet Me Run Your Bathwater
Whatever You Desire, I’ll Aspire
Sing You A SongTurn The Game On
I’ll Brush Your HairHelp
  Put Your Do Rag On
Want A Foot Rub
?You Want A Manicure?
Baby I’m Yours I Want To Cater To You Boy”

Men are not really complex individuals. They work hard for their ego, their family, their future. At the end of the day they get tired and they want someone to take care of them. You are the missing piece in their hectic puzzle called life. They may achieve a lot of things, and you will be the “wind beneath their wings.” Who wouldn’t want a relationship like the Obamas or the Jolie-Pitts?Being a woman who love too much isn’t really a bad thing as long as you keep your obsessive nature in the right place and time. In a modern world where women rule a country, many men tend to feel intimidated by strong, powerful characteristics and a strong feeling towards them can do more harm than good. Just follow the steps that has worked for me and my friends, and I assure you that you will be capturing the heart that captured yours and he will love you forever.

Before anyone goes around calling this pointless, the Japanese (as well as many other Asian countries) character system benefits from a higher resolution more than the writing systems used by most all Western countries. The symbols are far more dense, which makes the additional resolution more useful.

Here's a good image that shows off that difference that additional resolution can achieve.

Call your bank before tourism?

I've never had that work. Four times in a row I called to let them know I'd be travelling and they suspended the credit card a few days after my purchase.

This was First Tech Credit Union, by the way. I think they're just more provincial than a big bank... My Chase credit card has never been suspended abroad even without calling
