Absolutely unsafe, in an absolutely horrible terrible, extremely bad neighborhood! This place has at least 250 to 400 shootings every day. Flash mobs with stolen MP-5s and AK-47s attack the place in broad daylight causing mass pandemonium. SWAT teams have been gunned down, murdered, and robbed in the neighborhood. News/media personnell won't go in that neighborhood anymore because too many broadcasters have been shot and murdered on the job by the flash mobs. The club and the neighborhood it sits in is a war zone!

Absolutely unsafe, in a horrible, terrible, extremely bad neighborhood. Jimmy's Gentlemen's Club is nothing but shootings, homicides, and robberies in broad daylight. Shootings occur every single day inside the club. The club is a common hangout for cop killers with AK-47s, many of who had taken out SWAT teams and now have the entire FBI and Homeland Security on their tails. Armed security is no good against the ruthless cop killers. The entire stretch of Highway 30 between Cicero Avenue and I-65 in Indiana is all endless, nonstop hood. Bottom line, never ever go here. The club is totally unsafe, it sits in an extremely bad neighborhood, and extremely few people ever come out of there alive.

The definition of the industrial age, when Germany ramped up its commercial and political machine under Bismarck. The next 100 years will be defined by data and electrons. Hard industry is on the way out. The first great power that realizes this will run the world for the foreseeable future.

I discovered meetup.com in 2011 after I was given permission by my martial arts instructor to teach, so long as I didn't charge for it. The good about hosting a meetup is that people will find you and show up. I met some very interesting people through the years, both in SF and LA. The attendance varied significantly based on the location; not exactly different in SF and LA, but based on the specific location; say, one park at 10am on a Saturday might get 12 people to show up, where's a similar park a mile south might get 2. So a little experimenting is required. I was somewhat worried what kind of folks would show up, as this is basically the craigslist of community events, but I met mostly really good folks, two of whom have become really close friends of mine. As a host, there are fees, and those fees have increased fairly significantly over the past few years, although if you have at least a few people attending your meetups you can easily get back the fees if everyone chips in a few bucks. I moved away from meetup recently though, as I tried hosting some other events that were poorly attended (meditation and acting were hit and miss, and a book club wasn't attended at all). I tried getting meetup to lower my dues but after lowering it one time, they wouldn't do it again. I get it. All in all I would recommend this, as it's generally free for folks who aren't hosts (some groups do charge), and you can find a meetup for what you are looking to do/learn.

There are some great things about Yelp. We use them when selecting a restaurant to go to in an area we aren't familiar with. However, and I'm not sure anything can be done about this, I get irritated when some yelper is having a bad day or doesn't like the waiter's haircut, or even has a bad experience but it is just one isolated experience, and they go off with a 1-star review. Maybe there is an algorithm that could be set to move the extreme ratings (all caps, tons of exclamation points, etc) but then that could be biasing the reviews and would likely not go over well. From the perspective of the yelper, I never really got into it. I've left a handful of reviews, generally when asked by a business owner or when I've been given some sort of coupon or discount for leaving a yelp review, but I found the lack of a distinct community and engagement to be pretty boring.

You know what, RateItAll changed my life. I was sitting in my cubicle in the Hartford accounting firm I worked for, bored and fantasizing about how to get out of there, when I decided to complain about life long Cubs fan Steve Bartman's decision to interfere with a catchable baseball that may well have changed the tide of the series for his dear Cubs. I found RIA to do that, and then I reviewed other things. I read Magellan's SF reviews and I thought, now that place sounds interesting. Six months later I was living out there. I found a job that better suited me but still, I felt something was missing. I decided to give sales a try and I got a phone sales job where I had to make over 120 calls per day. I felt worse at times than I did at the accounting firm and I was about to quit when my good pal Ridgewalker said hey, minkey, the job sucks but you have to stick with it until you get successful at it. And he shared pages and pages of ideas with me about how to make that job a little more bearable, a little more fun...and I actually started hitting my numbers. A year later I got what was my dream job. I've since taken two other jobs but I'm still in sales, still in that same industry. I've found a couple side passions but the older I get, the more I think I found my life's work in this industry, and living here in California. My friends Magellan, Ridge, and Chalky have made this place a rich experience for me. Several others helped to educate me in this thing called life as well. RIA is a community and I have learned that in life, having a community can make a big difference.

While the coffee at Starbucks may seem a tad expensive, it's the absolute best! Barista's will prepare the coffee however you ask! Has a grand flavor along with a fresh but bold taste.

Excellent all round facilities, service, consideration and politeness. Must say something about the comfort of the airline. The crew were wonderful. The service is excellent and the seats are more than comfy. It is one of the places I go to search flights now, they have best deals.

Programming on cable TV is crap. I cut it and went with just a basic internet package. All I need.

We're all being robbed. The more we pay, the worse it gets, too.

Most jobs ( if they have plans at all) do not pay for dental, and when you need adentist, you will pay anything. Most seem to know this.

Not a huge fan. It's nice once in awhile, but I only want a small amount. Dark is best.

For all mobile devices, first of all I like Iphone because it is very smart, even the payload is much higher than other devices. But in parallel, I spend a lot of salary because of work needs. I feel that apple should increase the capacity to match the current job demand.

Great job about connecting people. I especially like the fact that you can share whatever you are going through in real time, but Facebook needs to improve on its data protection especially from 3rd parties.
