There are definitely times when I eat waaay too much, and I usually suffer for it. But I try not to by spreading a meal out or by snacking rather than eating another meal.
Occasionally take more than you want to eat and then THROW IT OUT

So, genius, why do you keep sending me warranty offers you can't honor?
Somehow, I'm super lucky on my cell and receive maybe one spam call a month. I have no idea how many trillions of those calls go to my landline because I never check the messages and the ringer doesn't work...
Since the gravitic center is essentially the Earth's center of mass, do we know if that point is dead-center? Given the differences in crust thickness, ocean placement, mountains, etc...?
Do I need to get more coffee?
