I think this is fairly common which makes it not so strange. I on occasion crave chocolate but once I get my fix I am good for a while. Unless there is more in the house just waiting for me to eat it.

This list was well before it's time. I think the Tide Pod thing came out about a year ago. Chalky actually filled me in on that one; Gronk did a PSA about it. With YouTube something like that can really catch steam. It's going to be weird having kids in the YouTube/smartphone age. Even if I have my kids on lockdown from that sort of stuff, it's not like they won't be seeing it at their friends or at school.

See I'm not sure how to rate this. I feel better if I do about 30 minutes of working out, 6 times a week. That's really the magic number for me. I've spent time at gyms, had memberships for years, had trainers...I've gotten in really good shape at times, and just sort of maintained at other times. But the past few years I've been doing my own thing at home. I bought some free weights and a bench, then left them at our house, where I have a garage. So at the condo, now I just have a bunch of mats and pull-up bar. I've been doing a series of kenpo kicks and strikes, just whatever I feel like, and about 100 pushups, 300 situps and 30 pullups. This has me more or less maintaining, I'm not getting in great shape but it's free, it's pretty convenient, and it has some elements of anaerobic along with the aerobic exercise. That being said I just can't say it's an addiction. If I miss it for a few days or even a couple weeks, I'm not jonesing for it. But I never really do miss it for that long, unless I'm sick. Working out isn't a bad thing, but I'm not addicted to it...so do I still give it two stars for a "bad" addiction? True dilemma.

Are you telling me Donald Trump designed, built and ran a casino in New Jersey and never brushed elbows with a mobster or two? Tell me it isn't so. After all, he DID need concrete, for God's sake.

Now who's being naive, Kay?

At this time strange or not strange I am not addicted to exercise. In fact I am as far from having an exercise addiction as you can get. I might have to give it a try but I can almost bet I won't get addicted to it.

If you are meeting your candy dealer in a dark alley to get your fix of chocolate then I would agree with it being a strange addiction. If you have candy bars stashed in every nook and cranny of your house so you don't run out ever then again I say strange addiction. I like chocolate but I won't start to shake and sweat if I don't have any. Though I do have a friend who has a serious chocolate habit that is bordering on sickness. She eats enough for both of us.

Bill Gates the name synonymous with sheer brilliance and modern era entrepreneurship, that stands tall as a landmark of human capabilities & achievements by which anyone can be taken a leaf to inspire forever.

The term success directly proportional to the human being brain limits instead of any such factors i.e. college degree, education, economical-background etc. Any college education is played a role of guide/instructor in expand, channelizing & directing anyone's success canvass towards a better fortune.
Thus, any college education platform facilitates the sharpen, excel and broadens that basic/natural talent stream with the help of all available scientific technology, tools towards a next-level trained professional human being.

On the other hand, sheer brilliance never depends upon the college education, yet it acts as a catalyst, pathfinder or torchbearers for most of the humans. But of the personalities like Bill Gates college education never been a hurdle in their glory-path. Altogether college education have their own importance for any other normal persons.

Actually such exceptional brains can't be kept contained for long within a college like limited territories, sometimes they indirectly making them slower towards the target. Most of our educational institutions designed for the average brains, obviously now we have such premier specialized educational institutions for ultra-brilliants which can cater as per their need & quest.

Today our community have a lively example of many such iconic personalities like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg & many more those are developed outside the traditional system and set a milestone for human endeavor. But it is notable point also, not everyone become a Bill Gates.

The final conclusion is like...Yes History always shows icons like Bill Gates proves the theorem of mine " True brilliance always shines brightest irrespective of all other restraints".

I actually have a lot in common with Bill Gates. Gates is probably the most successful person *without* a college degree, and I'm probably the least successful person *with* a college degree.

Oh wait.
