If you know now what you knew then, would you make a difference?

If you know now what you knew then and didn’t do anything differently once you learned what you now know, you’re in the same place now as you were then. The only thing that has changed is you know know what to act on, whether or not you do is the personal choice you have to make. But any choice you make, not matter how personal, affect more than just you. And you don’t have to know the people that are affected for them to be affected…..Act wisely. For you don’t know who’s life you’ll change, directly or indirectly. Those lives may come around your way one day, in a positive or negative way depending on the actions (or lack of) you took based on what you knew.

Hello No to GMO

The battle against Monsanto and other GMO companies is finally starting to head in the right direction. One county in Oregon just passed a bill where GMO is now banned; another county is about to have a court battle. Let’s hope they win.

Human evolution: Where is it going?

I have been seeing a lot of posts and articles on technological enhancements to the human body, and some of it’s getting kind of scary. Apparently them natural process of evolution is too slow for modern science, so their going to do what they can to speed things up a bit. Honestly I don’t see a good future coming out of this path.

Worlds within worlds

We humans have a recorded history dating back approximately 6,000 years ago, and science has only been around for a few thousand years. It took us a while to really get the ball going, first having major discoveries once or twice a century, but now we seem to be having them every few months and even daily. Yet we still know almost nothing about the known universe on both it’s infinitely large scale, and¬†infinitely small scale.

This is a cool solution

My home ac unite broke last year so I’ve been trying to find ways to keep cool in the summer heat because I can’t afford a new unite for $2,000. So here is a solution for under $20. Found another one like this except it used a styrofome cooler instead of a bucket.

Why recycle when you can feed the fungi?

Companies are advertising they are making up to 70% of their bottles from plants now. But even with this effort is it doing any good for the environment? Is the effort of even trying to recycle doing any good? We still have endless landfills full of trash. But, there may be a solution to the plastic problem. Now if we could just USE this solution.

what’s in your soda?

Companies, no matter where they are located throughout the world, don’t seem to be concerned with the health risk of the public as long as they make their money. So not only does this site give you some interesting info on the Cola and Pepsi products in India, it’s lay out features are nifty also.

The truth about Fluoride is washing up

They’re finally admitting Fluoride isn’t doing any good for you at all, but only hurting you.

Monetary Enslavement

For every dollar that is printed, that’s two dollars more we go into debt; one dollar for what was borrowed, and the other dollar for the automatically attached interest to come with the borrowed dollar. So where do we get that other dollar from to pay that automatic interest? No where. Money is created from virtually nothing and used to keep us in imaginary perpetual debt that doesn’t actually exist, never had, and never will.

That is how we are all slaves to the system; this country is not free.

Hidden gas frees (debit/credit hold)

I didn’t know anything about this until a few days ago. During the last two to five months I have had the problem a few times when my bank, Pen Air Federal Credit Union, about my account going into over draft and only because of a few dollars (one time it was only 60 cent).¬† Well this happened twice within the last two months and I went into the bank complaining about it because I make sure I have what I need before I leave the house so I make any transfers I think I’ll need, so I know right about where my account is. I kept arguing with them telling them I know what’s in there because I check and add what’s needed before I do anything. The second to last time this happened I made sure I was opted out of everything especially the over-draft privileges which allows me to go over $500 if needed (what ever my purchase plus their OD free of $30). Recently this happened again after I knew I had put money into my account, so I drove up to the bank to see what was going on…again. They kept trying to tell me I just wasn’t keeping close enough track of my account balance when I knew better; also that I wouldn’t have to pay cost of the od even though my account was negative a few dollars which meant I had to may that amount again to make my account positive, plus what ever I put in my account from there for what ever I need to get so would have still had to pay that negative balance back. The lady I talked to this time was the same one I talked to last time so we had already been around this circle, only this time we got somewhere useful. She talked to someone above her and they looked deeper into my transactions and saw there were a few places where I had gotten gas that had held two $90 holds on my account until the transactions were authorized as valid on my account. This made my account balance fluctuate making it had to see what was really in there.

 

Something else I should add was I used my card at the pump, I didn’t go inside and tell them how much and I had only gotten $5 for gas.

So I learned not to pay out side any more at all, and if you DO use your card inside be sure to tell them how much and what pump. But it’s safer all around to use cash, which I still don’t by force of habit and convenience.
