Yeah I've been using my phone during take off and landing my ENTIRE life. I hide the electronic and the second the flight attendants sit down the device comes back out. I'm listening to music. What's the point of of all this hubbub? I can't even get a signal and if I leave my phone on. It will keep trying to find a signal and will run itself out of battery faster.
Another question that baffles me, how were the people on the 9/11 flights able to use their cell phones during flight? Yeah they have the in seat phones, but i still remember hearing people say, "Yeah they used their phones!" Fun fact that everyone seems to forget.
This whole "intern" experience annoys the hell out of me. I had the unfortunate pleasure of being a coffee runner / bottom b!tch while I was in school too. If you're going to intern the companies need to pay them a minimum wage or whatever the going rate is for entry level people. Yes I know this is China, but even in the US a few years ago the whole intern thing was a complete excuse to slave labor college students.
My internship was a complete joke and a waste of my time. I know a few kids who were lucky, but the majority never had any "connections" to use when they left the internship and post college. Get a real part time job locally or in my case work at the on campus IT department which coincidentally helped me land my real first job with a salary and benefits.
Onto the topic at hand, when I buy products made in a third world country, I know for a fact somewhere along the line little starving children made it for pennies so I can buy it at a 300% markup. That's the whole point of globalization, to exploit a lesser countries cheaper labor and resources so we can upcharge local americans and pocket the markup. I don't understand the outrage people have. You're knowingly buying a product made from a country that doesn't care about its environment and people. That is why it is super cheap!
There is a reason there aren't any "free trade Xboxes" or "100% Fair Pay iPhones". If you don't like third world countries abusing their people and environment for your shiny new toy then don't buy it and live like it is 1994 without any real technology or keep using tech that was built from fabrication plants that were in the US.
It's hard to do, but if you really want to have a body that you aren't ashamed of then you have to work for it. I never went to the gym prior to this year. I ended up getting twelve sessions with a personal trainer who helped me get the form right. Once I got some level of fitness acquired from that, we made a routine for every other day and a nutrition plan for bulking up.
You have to go to the gym with a plan in mind as to what you want. For me, i've always been tall and skinny. The ultimate curse. For me to over come my powerful metabolism, I had to go against conventional strength training advice because my body isn't like everyone else. I eat roughly 3500+ calories a day. I get up at 6 or 6:30am, shower, take the bus to work, and am fortunate enough to have a gym in the basement of my office building. I work out for an hour which really helps make the day better, shower again, and go to work. I eat 5 meals a day.
The gains are slow, but the immediate effect of feeling 100% better is noticeable. I live in the shittiest city in the world (Boston) and between the lack of sunlight and bitter cold, the gym helped pull me out of some winter sadness. Seriously, it's not hard to start a 3 day routine. Getting the will power to go is all it takes, but once you start going you will eventually start feeling guilty about not going to the gym.
