I like Holland America because you can bring on unlimited amounts of wine.

but yeah, the liquor prices can be pretty outrageous onboard the ship.

In Houston, a nine-dollar martini is high-end for all but the ritziest restaurants, but medium-range for strip clubs.
Words mean things.

From graduate school today:  I spent most of last week 10-12 hours a day working on a presentation.  My partner made a smartboard activity.  We presented it today. Immediately upon finishing the chick behind me asked the teacher if she could have a copy of our project "so I can reference it when I work on mine." my jaw dropped.  Apparently since we were the first we need to provide everyone else with a guide so they don't have to work so hard.
 
yeah, I am not impressed with this concept.


Our presentation and the discussion was the very last thing to happen in class, so when I got home and went to work on homework, there was an email to the entire class from the same chick demanding that we all 'share' copies of our first project ( 10 ideas on how to use a smart board) so she "can use your ideas in my classes" - honestly, do your own work, but stealing from me is not going to make me like you.

I'm curious.  What was the teacher's response? ???

People who snuggle alcohol in cruise ships.

Really, the drinks are cheap compared to land ($9 martinis which are usually $15 to $20) and they go to do much effort to conceal the grog with the risk of it getting found...

Why bother?

Is it illegal?  What happens if they get caught?

I find the thought of snuggling with one's alcohol a bit disturbing under any circumstances.  >:D

Sorry, couldn't resist.

She was like "only if they want to"   

She encourages sharing, I don't believe in sharing.  I figure if I can put in the work, so can everyone else.  But this chick wants a copy of everything everyone makes for this class.  I will continue to refuse

Good for you.  She can do her own work or fail.

Those ads are quite enough to "shake me up"! Hope they improve such situations.


I'm not a fan of shock PSAs but these are well done. 

I would ask one question.  Why does rhe color of the  driver's shirt change from solid to plaid just before impact?  Does anyone know?

I think they were cost cutting. they did two ads one for metro (solid shirt)  and one for rural (plaid) and in the common scenes (passing the cyclists), they used the same piece of footage.

They will confiscate it, tag it, and return it the night before you leave.  Same as if you buy alcohol in port

HAH! This is my favorite Snowflake explanation ever. I just saw a news story about a woman complaining because her gym suddenly cancelled her membership after she answered a phone call while using one of the machines. (Gym, btw, says this was a repeated problem, not just once.) The reporter interviewing her pointed out that there are signs posted all over the place warning people not to use phones except in the lobby and asked why she did it anyway. Her response?

"It was instinctual. I saw the name and I answered. Oh my God. We don't have a Pope right now. The earth is swallowing people alive."

The lack of a Pope doesn't really affect my day to day life, but jerks shouting on their phones in the gym definitely do. Yay for this gym. :)

Who is going to invent a Snuggie with a wine bottle pocket?

Ooooooo!  Good idea!  We should make sure it has pockets for wine glasses and wine keys as well.
