What Do I Need to Do After Losing My Wallet? Good points if you know your wallet is really gone, but 90% of the time, a lost wallet means I misplaced it and it's always going to turn up in the oddest place. Best thing to do is not carry a lot of 'identity theft' stuff in your wallet, in the first place: -Obviously, no one should carry their Social Security card, memorize the number and keep your SS card in a safe. -Driver's license is not much choice, but some people I know keep theirs in their car. I guess the address part is important, assuming someone decides to return the wallet. -Keepall plastic cards down to a bare minimum, just the ones you plan to use in the near future. -Keep your credit card customer service numbers in your phone contacts so that you may place a hold on the cards. -Keeping pictures of cute kids (even if you don't have kids) in your wallet may convince someone to be compassionate and return the wallet. -Most people aren't going to want your identity, they'll just want the money.
Ten Anime Series You Should See Before You Die First off I’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone that read my list of ten anime films you should see before you die—the response has been phenomenal—not just the number of people who read it, but also those who took the time out to get involved in the following discussion. Some people loved my selections, some people thought I was well off the mark, but it was clear that there was no way I was going to be able to avoid putting together another list, this time of TV series. It has been a far harder list to compile. Not only because of the vast selection to choose from, but also because I knew from the start that I would be leaving out some shows that a lot of people hold very dear. Just like last time, the aim of the list is not only to present ten examples of the anime medium that showcase the art form at its greatest, but also ten examples that are accessible to those mature viewers for whom the scene is new or even completely alien. Cowboy Bebop (1998) - 26 episodes

50 Kick-Ass Websites You Need to Know About It's time to update the entries in your browser's links toolbar. But with recent estimates putting the size of the internet at well more than 100 million distinct websites, it's getting harder and harder to get a handle on all the great stuff that's out there. That's why we've compiled this list. And unlike some lists you may have seen, which try to name the very "best" websites, but end up just telling you a lot of stuff you already know, we've chosen instead to highlight 50 of our favorite sites that fly under most people's radar. Think of it as the Maximum PC blog roll (remember those?). You might have heard of some of these sites, but we'll bet you haven't heard of all them.

Heaven On Earth (8 Pics) For more fun facts, click HERE. Listverse ~synthesis~ Kitchen of the Future Kitchen of the Future Energy-saving light bulbs will only take us so far. We need to push ourselves to rethink domestic appliances entirely, to rethink how homes consume energy, and how entire communities can pool resources” says Clive van Heerden, Senior Director of Design-led Innovation at Philips Design. Philips believes the solution is likely to come from biological processes, which are less energy-consuming and non-polluting. The central hub in the Microbial Home system is a repositionable kitchen island, including a chopping surface with vegetable waste grinder, a gas cooking range, a glass tank that shows energy reserves and glass elements showing pressure, volume and readiness of compost sludge. Chopping surface with vegetable waste grinder. Technological development has enabled us to mimic nature’s processes. The paternoster domestic plastic waste up-cycler uses mycelium to break down plastic packaging waste. Urban bee-hive. Kudos to Philips - more, please!
:zenhabits How to Build a Universe That Doesn't Fall Apart Two Days Later First, before I begin to bore you with the usual sort of things science fiction writers say in speeches, let me bring you official greetings from Disneyland. I consider myself a spokesperson for Disneyland because I live just a few miles from it — and, as if that were not enough, I once had the honour of being interviewed there by Paris TV. For several weeks after the interview, I was really ill and confined to bed. I think it was the whirling teacups that did it. Elizabeth Antebi, who was the producer of the film, wanted to have me whirling around in one of the giant teacups while discussing the rise of fascism with Norman Spinrad... an old friend of mine who writes excellent science fiction. Science fiction writers, I am sorry to say, really do not know anything. It reminds me of a headline that appeared in a California newspaper just before I flew here. Well, I will tell you what interests me, what I consider important. But the problem is a real one, not a mere intellectual game.
