Did they really do that?

Come on really. Do you have to make your truck a lowrider? Maybe do it to an older mazda pickup truck or a really old ford or chev. But a newer model dualley.  I don’t know what to say about what I saw yesterday and on my way home from work. There it was a Dual wheel heavy duty truck that was dropped. It was dropped by at least 4 inches.  To me it don’t make much sense to do this. Most people take there trucks and put a lift kit on them.

What do you think? Would you lower your heavy duty truck? Would you Lower any truck? WTF?

Parking Lot Idiots

I can probably speak for most people when I say I hate driving in the winter. Not only do you have to deal with snow, ice, scraping and warming up the car you have to deal with the idiots on the road. We were hit with a lot of snow and freezing temperatures and it threw everyone off. Unfortunately, life doesn’t stop for the weather so people still had to go to work and to the grocery store. Well I’ll tell you I have never been more frustrated in parking lots then I have been the past month.

Lets get a couple of things straight. Number one people can’t park in general. So throw snow into the mix and what do you get? Parking lines that you can’t see. So now you have people parking on angles when it’s straight or people taking up two spots instead of one. Another thing that annoys me is when you come back to your car only to find out you can’t get in it because some idiot decides that he doesn’t need to leave you any space to get into your car so you either have to crawl in through the passenger side or stand there and wait.

Another thing that really gets to me is people who are impatient. Now I understand people with small kids are just trying to do regular errands like everyone else and that they are probably tired but I think that is no excuse for being impatient and rude.

Picture this you are in the parking lot and just finished loading the last of your groceries into the car. When a woman decides to pull up on your side of the vehicle in one of the MANY parking spots available. This was a regular spot it wasn’t close to the store and it wasn’t one of those family spots either. So she sees that your trunk has been closed and your cart is gone. It’s safe to say that you are probably going to get in your car and pull out. Well instead of waiting the one minute it would take you to get into your car and leave she decides that she’s going to get out of her car and block your access with her door  as she takes her small child out of the car seat while you stand there looking at her as she fumbles for 5 minutes. Now the polite thing to do would have been for her to just sit in her warm car and let you get into your car. Now some of you may not care but that really got on my nerves. Like why can’t people just wait for one minute or park properly because guaranteed they would be just as pissed off if they were in that situation.

Money Saving Tips 81-85

Find daily inspiration. Maybe its your kids or your wife that makes you want to be a better person and live a better life. Keep a picture of them close by to remind you of the reason you need change and want change.

Make your own items instead of buying them. Instead of buying household cleaners look on the internet for recipes to make your own. Not only are there a bunch of recipes many are natural so you don’t have to worry about your children or the environment.

Don’t speed. Not only does speeding affect your gas mileage it can cost you in tickets. Do yourself a favour and go the speed limit.

Buy a smaller house. Have your kids moved out? or do you live by yourself? If you find yourself with more space then you have anything to do with consider downsizing or at least rent out the extra space to make money.

Ask for fees to be waivered. Anytime you sign up for a service there are normally sign-up fees ask them if they can be waived. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t but it doesn’t hurt to try.

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde was born in New York City in 1984. She was christened with the name Olivia Cockburn but her family changed her name for acting purposes. Olivia made her debut in 2003 on a TV show called Skin but the show would only last for one season. That same year she married Tao Ruspoli (a prince by Papal title). Wilde was thrust into stardom when she joined the O.C from 2004-2005. At that same time she won roles in the Girl Next Door, Alpha Dog, and Running with Scissors. In 2007 Wilde joined the cast of house playing a character nicknamed “13”. She also appears in the movie Year One alongside Jack Black and Michael Cera.

Fertility Myths about Men

Myth: Fertility cycles are only for women.

The time of day or year can affect fertility. Sperm production increases during cooler temperatures which would explain why sperm counts are higher in winter and lower in the summer season. Men also have higher sperm counts in the morning which is also when they have higher levels of hormones. Experts still don’t fully agree if time or day of the year affect fertility overall.

Myth: Riding a bicycle doesn’t affect fertility.

The exercise isn’t what is bad for you. Bicycling becomes  a problem when you are sitting for long periods of time especially if you are wearing those tight bicycle shorts, this temporarily raises scrotal temperature which affects sperm production. This is why men who are hoping to conceive should skip saunas and hot tubs. Things you can do to help are taking frequent breaks from cycling and choosing wider and softer bicycle seats.

Myth: Daily sex will increase your chances for conception.

Overall the ability to conceive is about timing. Usually the best time to conceive is on the 11th or 17th day of the woman’s menstrual cycle. A mans sperm can live anywhere from 48-72 hours in the reproductive tract of the female. Therefore having sex daily may to little to nothing in helping with conceiving.

Myth: Only overweight men have problems with their sperm.

Well we know that being obese can affect sperm production it is also known that being underweight can also have an impact. Being underweight means you more then likely have a hormonal imbalance as well as being malnourished. A study done shows that men with an optimal BMI (20-25) had high sperm production levels then those who were underweight or overweight.

Myth: Lubricants don’t speed up sperm.

Lubrication decreases the friction which helps increase the pleasure during sex. However when it comes to conceiving it can be counterproductive. Many ingredients could be toxic to sperm and can affect their ability to move. Saliva and lotions can also have this effect. If you do need to use some sort of lubrication consult with your physician to see what would be the best choice.
