  • Can they make me fight if a war happens?

    Please excuse my ignorance on this subject. 

    Last week my cousins were taking, and they said if I war were to happen, they have the right to tell me to fight, with no choice. 

    I like to go to the gym, and keep a healthy diet, and they mentioned that I was a candidate to fight, and that they weren’t because their not fit. 

    They also mentioned that because I didn’t need glasses also made me a candidate. 

    I’m not really worried that a war is going to happen, but I’m just curious if the government (or whatever the group is called) can select people to fight based on certain quality traits.

  • When should I wear my glasses?

    I’ll try to keep it short. As a kid, eye doctors told me that I would need glasses when I got older as my eyes were starting to get bad from a younger age. 

    I’m 21 now, and I went to a recent eye exam, and the doctor said that I would mainly need the glasses for night driving, or watching movies/tv. 

    I went out and got glasses a few months after receiving the prescription. 

    After trying them on, I thought “everything looks the same as before” but when I took them off, I instantly realized how everything was really blurry, but I thought it was clear. My eyes are not bad compared to people that depend on glasses. My doctor said I can pass a drivers exam without glasses. My prescription is pretty mild. 

    I don’t know what to do. Do I wear them or not? I kinda like how I look in them, and then make every day objects look HD, but I don’t really need them, and people are telling me that my eyes are gonna get worse with glasses. 

    I don’t know if I should wear them or not.

  • My Glasses reflect purple ?

    My eyes aren’t terrible, but getting glasses for the first time today, I see a huge clarity difference!

    The optometrist recommended I use it mainly for night driving, so I got anti glare...turns out, in daytime my glasses look purple! I really don’t like the purple, especially when it’s hanging on my shirt because it looks like cheap sunglasses. 

    They can change the anti glare for free, but I’m worried that I’ll have a hard time seeing at night without the anti glare?

    I can’t stand the purple, and I want to use my glasses at night...what should I do? Can I drive at night without antiglare?

  • I look too young...male?

    I just turned 21 and people are still coming to my with full shock when I say my age. The flat out think I’m lying. I work with my dad selling jewelry, and I feel like it takes away my credibility because I look immature. They say I look 14-18. 

    It doesn’t help that I’m very short-5’6”. I’m trying to grow my facial hair out, but I can’t grow a full beard yet, but I still have stubble but it doesn’t help. 

    I don’t dress childish with those graphic tees, but it doesn’t help. I’ve tried short hair, hated it and I look even younger. My hair is medium length now, but it doesn’t help. 

    Will this be a problem all my life? I feel like I would be taken so much more seriously if I looked my age. My twin cousins are a day younger than me and they look so much older than me.

  • I don’t like sockeye salmon?

    I am crazy about salmon. It’s my favorite fish. I’ve been eating the farmed Alaskan, but I tried eating the wild caught sokeye because farmed is not good. 

    Anyway, I can tolerate it, but it for some reason is missing that juicy taste of the Alaskan. 

    I eat it grilled/pan cooked.

    Creative retail shopping bag ideas?

    It’s for a jewelry store. I’m redesigning my shopping bags. I’m inspired by the bags like Ferragamo and Cartier, and I want to replicate that, but with my own spin to it. 

    My store theme is rose gold, but I don’t want to make it girly, because we have more men customers. I want it more masculine, or neutral. 

    The bag is going to be textured paper with rope handles and the logo hot stamped & embossed. The bag is currently dark gray, but I’m thinking of doing black. 

    I don’t know, it feels like something is missing. It almost looks too plain for me. I kinda feel like the gold against the gray isn’t contrasting enough. What do you think?

  • Medium-end brands for men clothing. Not Zara level?

    Male over here. I’ve been shopping at Zara for my clothes. I actually haven’t bought new clothes in a while, and as I’ve been  getting older (I’m 21), I want to wear more mature clothing that fits me better.

     Zara quality just isn’t doing it for me anymore. I have shirts from their that the shoulder stitching is off. It sticks out, and the fit isn’t great. Is rather buy a few god quality clothes, that last long and I enjoy, than cheaper fitting stuff. I have dress shoes from Ferragamo and Gucci, but I am not looking for the high of a brand. Especially since I’m looking for more of pants and shirts. 

    Got any stores for me to check out? Where do you buy your clothes from that you appreciated the quality?

  • LED’s making jewelry photos look bad?

    I have a high end jewelry store, and my store is currently using LED’s. 

    I’ve been trying to promote my Instagram, and other online places with photos of my jewelry, but the LED’s of the store make the picture look horrible. I have a small office that i want to change the bulbs. I really like how the pictures look in outside lighting. Are there any bulbs that can be used to bring the quality of my photos up? Also, a lot of my customers complain about the lighting being bad in the store, even though it’s very brightly lit with lights. 

    Any ideas?

  • Instagram Jewelry page-photos or videos?

    I have a Jewelry business and I’m trying to promote it on Instagram. It’s much easier for me to post pictures instead of videos, but I feel like people like videos better?

  • Plaque on bottom back teeth?

    I brush my teeth twice a day and I floss every single night. I know there’s some people that say that they do that, but don’t, however, I do. Every single day! I get dental cleanings every six months as well. 

    However, after a few weeks following my cleaning, I get this yellow encrusting thing in the back of my bottom front teeth. They start from the bottom of the tooth where the gums meet, and it accumulates. 

    I usually scratch if off with my nail, and it’s rather easy to remove, but it comes back again after a few weeks. I don’t like it. 

    I floss each side of the tooth when I floss. Tonight, I did a back and forth sawing motion and I removed a lot of plaque and it shocked me by how much it accumulated. 

    One thing, I usually brush for a little over a minute. Sometimes I do 2 minutes, but I won’t say that I’m consistent in that regard. 

    I will mention this to my dentist in my next cleaning, but does someone have experience with this? How can I improve my dental hygiene?

  • Scenting my business?

    I have a jewelry store and I want to make it smell really good for the customers. Also to use it for marketing.

    I tried candles and essential oil diffusers. I have a wax warmer that I was thinking of trying the wax melts, but I feel like those won’t work either.

    I know hotels/restaurants/retails stores use the scenting in the air vents.

    What’s the best way to scent my store? The full store is 1800 square feet, but I’m really only wanting the scent the show room which isn’t that large. Maybe 900 square feet? Honestly not so sure.

  • I need someone in real life to help me with my skinny fat issue?

    I have been struggling with my skinny fat body for years! I’m sick of it already. I’m going to the gym about 3 times a week. I’m not going to say that my diet is perfect. I don’t drink sodas or eat candy. I am aware of my macros and I get my body weight in protein. But some nights I binge and over eat because I’m still hungry.

    Anyway, regardless if I’m doing the above correct or not, I’m not seeing the results. The forums online say bulk. I’ve bulked and I look fat. I’ve tried cutting too, but I just looked like an even skinnier fat version of myself. I tend to bulk for a few weeks, then look at the mirror, and switch to cutting.

    What I’m trying to say if that I’m spinning my wheels for nothing. I want someone in real life to tell me what to do. I don’t want any cookie cutter plan. I just don’t know what those people are called. I don’t need a trainer to count my reps for me. I’m motivated and I can do the workouts. I just need to know whether to bulk or cut. Or maybe there’s a different way. What type of person do I look for online near my area? Nutritionist? Dieticians? I don’t know.

  • How to not sound dumb while getting a cat back for the first time?

    I have a car that I want to get a cat back on. Muffler deletes are cool, but too obnoxious and I heard they can drone in the cabin (not for me)

    I think a cat back is what I’m looking for, but I never got one before, and I don’t want to look dumb when I go to the muffler shop.

    They said something about adding an x pipe with cat back over the phone.

    How can I tell if they are ripping me off?

    I’m not sure what brands they will use, or if they will custom make it, and I’m not really not sure about the differences of each brand, so I’m afraid I will not be able to answer them if they ask what I want. All I know is that I want some noise, because I have a nice car, but it’s quiet.

  • Lips are dry 24/7 what’s wrong with me?

    Before anyone asks, I drink a lot of water. I drink more or less 100 ounces of water every day but it’s not helping me. I don’t lick my lips. I even switched my Colgate toothpaste to sensodyn because I heard SLS can cause dry lips.

    I don’t really use any products on my lips. I occasionally use Burt’sbees, and sometimes vasalign, but it’s temporary.

    I eat very healthy, no junk food, candy, sodas whatsoever. The funny thing is my dad and family eat unhealthy, don’t drink any water, and never use lip balm and they have normal lips.

  • BMW 550 need to press gas every time I fully stop?

    My first BMW. Any other car that I’ve driven stops when I press break, then it will slowly move as I slightly loosen my pressure on the breaks.

    This car is much different. If I’m reversing and I fully break, the car will fully stop on it’s own. I can fully release my foot from the breaks, and gas, and it will not move...unless I press gas. It leads to an awkward foot dance between break and gas when I’m backing out.

    I’m terrible at explaining this, and I really hope you can understand me.

  • Lexus LS RWD or AWD?

    I live in Florida. No snow but it does rain a lot. The Lexus LS comes in either AWD or RWD. I’m comparing the specs and they both have the same horsepower and specs. I know AWD is better for snow, but it doesn’t snow here. Which one is the better one?
