Is the economy in Dallas really better than other cities?

January 7th, 2014

Question by matilda.asks: Is the economy in Dallas really better than other cities?
I’m noticing a lot of transplants to Dallas. A lot. Some from other countries, others from major cities who normally wouldn’t ever think of moving to Dallas. I myself moved back from SF to Dallas to find a better job and because it’s cheaper.

Is it smart to stay in Dallas right now? I ask because I’ve been wanting to leave again, but with everyone moving here for jobs, it has me reconsidering. I was thinking of saving up next year and taking 6 months off to finally travel. But that’s if I actually keep my current job.

Best answer:

Answer by Bored Goblin
yes, oil prices will only go higher, and Texas is a economically conservative state, so it is the best place for skilled hard-working people (as long as you are OK with the climate and landscape)

What is the deal with Tamari on popcorn? Butter has to be better?

January 6th, 2014

Question by b down: What is the deal with Tamari on popcorn? Butter has to be better?
Just went to a movie in Olympia and they had no butter for the popcorn.
Instead they had a bunch of strange toppings including a spray bottle full of Tamari, which I hear is like Soy Sauce.

Have the good people of Washington never heard of Hot Buttered Popcorn? Or is this some hippy act of sabotage?

Best answer:

Answer by mqudee
Butter tastes better, but tamari is better for you. Just carry a small bottle of liquid margarine to the movie theatre, and turn plain popcorn into delicious, buttered popcorn!
– get a small bottle at the drugstore, where you findtravel sizedd bottles. Just get a fil-it-yourself bottle 😉

St. Augustine's Seminary was established in 1913 as the first major seminary constructed in English-speaking Canada for the training of diocesan priests. For a century, the seminary has been a renewing source of study and reflection enabling men of faith to mature both in knowledge and commitment. The specific apostolate of St. Augustine's is the preparation of candidates for ordained priesthood in the Catholic Church. The program of priestly formation is guided by the official documents of the Roman Catholic Church: particularly by the Vatican II's Decree on Priestly Formation, the Basic Norms for Priestly Formation of the Sacred Congregation for Catholic Education, The Program of Priestly Formation of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Apostolic Constitution Sapientia Christiana of Pope John Paul II and Pastores Dabo Vobis, the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation of Pope John Paul II, as well as the pertinent canons of the Code of Canon Law, and the various guidelines of ecclesiastical authorities.

If a single man pretends to be married, would he have a better chance at seducing women?

June 11th, 2013

Question by The Merovingian: If a single man pretends to be married, would he have a better chance at seducing women?
A few weeks ago I told my crazy female friend that I was thinking of pretending to be married to see if my attractiveness increases (I like messing with her mind). Initially, she was going to offer me her ex husbands old spare wedding band. Later on, she back peddled and said “Oh no, you shouldn’t do that!”

But would such a thing work? I haven’t tried it nor do I have any plan on trying it.

Best answer:

Answer by the steezy one
Haven’t you ever seen that episode of Seinfeld where George does the exact same thing. He wears his old wedding ring to a party and tells everyone that he’s married and all the women become extremely attracted to him, but he can’t do anything with them because they think that he’s married

Q&A: Which is a better place to live, Panama City Beach or Amelia Island?

December 24th, 2012

Question by localcenters: Which is a better place to live, Panama City Beach or Amelia Island?
We’re looking to relocate from California, and have narrowed the Florida search down to these two places. We were looking at Naples too, but we prefer North Florida for the people and proximity to other places. We like to fly fish and love boating and the water. Budget is about $ 500K for a house. Priorities are weather, low crime, good fishing and beaches and the general atmosphere. Don’t need to work.
