    I found out why addresses are concealed: selling agents are afraid they will be cut-out of the deal. It's an illegitimate fear, because they only need to write their contract of service properly. ...

    I tried the strategy of appearing at 11am, and was sent away. They said they "ran out of numbers" for the day for the particular task I needed. So in the end it actually makes sense to flood in...

    French classes tend to be advertised as the "full immersion" style of teaching. I would be interested in finding non-immersion French classes, where some of the instruction is in English, at least...

    getting quick service at a Belgian commune

    I notice the brussels commune floods with people before they open, with residents competing for low numbers. Is the early rush just people needing to get to work? Is service quicker when arriving...

    How often are moderated posts approved?

  10. The good beers are in glass - I want plastic bottles, or something lightweight

    With overseas shipping costs so high, it hardly makes sense to ship glass bottles of beer.

    Is there any way to buy good beer (e.g. Rochfort 10) in a plastic bottle? Or perhaps a thin walled keg...

    Definitely get out of the US, for a change. Where you go doesn't matter so much, but good choices for you would be netherlands, belgium, canada, spain, and new zealand. Choose your career, then...

    Separation of church and state should trump.

    I would consider the figures more of a measure of efficiency than productivity. The less you work, the more efficient you will be. European countries have the shortest workdays, so they should...
