    oh no... maybe try amazon, tiger direct, or newegg? Hopefully you can find something but I guess like some of the ppl here say, if its too old, maybe you should replace it.

    But I am grateful that I have a stable job. I went home and sat on the sofa zoned out for about 90 mins before I realised I should have dinner. I microwaved some leftovers as I didn't feel like cooking.
    wow sounds tiring... poor u, hopefully u got to rest or catch up on sleep on your days off. Yes good to have a stable job. Hard to find a job in this economy. Lots of ppl to compete with...



    Theres a book called "anyone you want me to be" since you guys are talking about serial killers. This guy learns how to use the internet back in the days and that's how he would find his victims online...

    It's your company but overall it's not good. The cost of living is going up much faster than wage and good paying jobs are much harder to find.

    Look like moving to Vancouver could be a right decision for me, I got many calls for math tutoring. I guess I will stuck on rent for a while as the cost of housing is way beyond my reach unless we have a big crash where price is going down by 50%.

    Here in Canada, the minimum is 5% down payment but then you have to buy CMHC insurance from the government. The problem is not the 5% down payment but the price of the house. It's crazy expensive here in Vancouver, BC. I would never buy anything at the current price, I rather live on rent. I do not want to make the same mistake like many Americans did in 2006 who bought houses at the peak. In most of Canada, with the exception of Alberta and Saskatchewan, you can't walk away from your mortgage when the market crashes. The lender can go after all your other assets including future earning. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recourse_debt

    I would rather keep waiting until the market crashes like it did in the US in 2008. The good news is many many experts predict that day is coming and is not far away. I am looking for at least 40% off from the current price. Did you buy your house after the crash or before the crash? Time is on my side so I can wait as long as it takes. Buying a house is the biggest purchase of my life, I have to be very very careful. I do not want to rush in at the peak like many Americans did in 2006.

    There is a reality show from A&E called "Married at First Sight". I didn't watch much of it. I watched like one or two episodes. The divorce rate is pretty high.

    Still better than arranged marriages where he/she have never met the person period.

    Maybe they feel they have a connection after talking to the person so long online and that they have a lot in common.

    I heard that it works out a lot better because you have a lifetime to learn about the other person. I'm not sure if that is really true.
