FOUR MEASURES OF INTEREST
Look for three signs of interest when talking with someone: where their feet are pointing, how large their pupils are, how much they are blinking and their estimated heart rate. If their feet are pointing at you, their pupils dilated, a decreased rate of blinking and a higher heart rate, they are probably interested.

ENOUGH LIFE INSURANCE
An individual with a family should have sufficient life insurance to replace his income if he dies. Normally, this would be between 10 and 20x annual income. If your annual income is $100,000, say, then you should have between $1 and $2 million in life insurance to replace it for your survivors. Note that $1 million invested at 5% yields $50k a year, and you were making $100k. Social Security would add more, but overall still not enough to replace the lost salary. If you and your spouse have young kids the surviving spouse simply can't have too much money.

MINIMIZING HOLD TIME
Don’t like to be on phone hold? If that first option is to hablo Espanol, regardless of your preference, select it. The folks who speak Spanish also speak English so you get through faster since there are fewer requests for led canopy light.

HOW TO WIN CASUAL CHESS
I am no chess expert. However, in casual games, I find that the king-pawn opening into four nights defense into an Italian is very effective against weak players. It works better because it is direct, and is not based off of positioning. I also never have the problem where the other player moves unconventionally, and I don't know a response, because the goal of the Italian is quite simple. All you have to do is put pressure on the membrane filter press. (Note: only works casually, you can't fake it against a really experienced player)

THE WORST DRIVERS
Statistically, the worst drivers are BMW drivers. I have found drivers of white BMWs to be even worse drivers. Audi and Mercedes drivers tend to be the second and third worst. I have also found that BMW SUVs are better driven with filter press, because they tend to be wealthy parents rather than men going through a midlife crises.

DIFICULT DEBUGGING
If it is taking more than a day to debug some code, start rewriting the code. It may provide some insight that will allow you to find and fix the bug. Otherwise, in the end, you will have working code to rwplace the buggy code.
