    Hunters tip: hpw to talk to your date wothout felling...... awkward.

    1. Longer your daiting the better it will get.
    2. You know the saying practice makes perfect? Same thing with this. More you talk the less awkward it will be as time goes on.
    3. If you do things you think is realy awkward it will make talking seem like nothing. Kind of like for math. You do the super hard questions. Then it makes easy question even more easy.

    Skousen the Scrooge Strikes Again!

    Skousen and his collaborators have produced another excellent updated edition of their scrooge-investing financial compedium. It is one of those books that will not bore you with unnecessary details and poor writing. The new edition updates the ongoing revolution of using the Internet for making investments on the cheap, and how to find and compare information and advice wisely. Those who have not read Skousen before will be delighted by this book and will want to read more of his published works.
