TIPS
In your hand luggage, pack medications, spare underwear, some toiletries, & any other essentials, in case your luggage goes missing.

Divide your money/traveller’s cheques between your bags, then if one bag goes missing, you won’t be left without money.

Coordinate your wardrobe before you go. It’s no good getting there and finding out that top doesn’t go with any of the skirts or pants you’ve brought with you!

If you roll up your clothes when you’re packing they won’t crease as much.

When you’re packing your case, lay your long clothing (dresses, trousers) along the bottom of your case leaving the ends over the side. Lay two across in each direction. In between the layers, place your neatly-folded shirts, jumpers & T-shirts & begin the process again, layering long items & packing folded clothing in between. When you’ve placed all of your clothing in the case, fold over the long bits and you’ll find that you have very few creases when you arrive at your destination.

Save room in your case by rolling up underwear & putting it in your shoes (the ones in the case, not on your feet!!).

Take two large suitcases with you (if the airline allows it), try to leave one fairly empty then you’ll have plenty of room for the souvenirs you buy!

I want like a 5 on the top & sides, but is it a taper? or what else do i ask for?

Answer by xxnikkimarie
take a good picture in with you and say “this is what i want”

Answer by D
I typically smile, make a joke, then tell them to do what they feel is best. They are always hesitant, but I advise I’ll tip them half the haircut cost.

I have gotten some wild results!

Answer by kryztlkat
Its basically a 3 inch allover spike with a zero fade at the neckline and sides lined out and cleaned up with a straight edge. I’m not a barber but i am a stylist and I do perform mens short and faded cuts. I dont know what state you live in but I’m in oregon and we cant use a straight edge. Truly you want to go to a skilled shop. Ask around do a little research on which shops are up todate on their cutting abilities etc. Then explain what you want in detail. If they appear confused they are …….. so then make your choice if you want them to do the cut or not.. Its a cool cut good luck. Sorry I dont know if there is a particular name for that or not.

Answer by Steve
The name of the haircut is given at the front of the video “blow out taper.” It is about 2.25″ at the front hairline and graduates to about 1″ at the back of the crown. The lower to mid back and sides are tapered. Search the internet under blow out taper, Brooklyn blow out, Gotti Boys etc and you will find loads of photos of this and similar styles. You need to go to a fairly hip barber shop for something like this. A #5 on the top is only 5/8″. Way shorter than this. This haircut is graduated in length on top, but in side profile, the outline of the top hair does not appear horizontal as with an ivy league or crew cut. 5/8″ on top is a brush cut(long butch.) I suggest a regular ivy league like the guy behind him or a crew cut. Shaving an outline at the forehead and sideburns is not a practical thing to do as it looks bad when the stubble appears in a few days. If you read the information below and open the links, it will give you a fairly good understanding of basic short upright styles, and should help you to get a blow out taper to your liking.

Some barbers describe an ivy league as a crew cut just long enough to be parted and combed to the side, if so desired. An ivy league can also be worn with the hair brushed up off the forehead to form the short pomp front, or with the short bangs brushed down on the forehead like a forward brush cut.

Grooming any of the short pomp(pompadour) styles- crew cut, ivy league, flat top crew cut- is basically the same and takes about a minute or two.
1) Towel dry hair.
2) Barely dip fingertips in jar of wax.
3)Transfer wax to palms.
4) Smooth palms over hair.
5)Brush hair off forehead to form short pomp front.
Whichever style you decide on, be sure to take a photo to help describe the desired haircut to the barber. If you need more photos of any of the styles discussed above, let me know.
Good Luck!

Answer by Loosey™
What really cracks me up is all the horrified screams and gnashing of teeth from the pews, I’m sure many pew-sitters crossed and re-crossed themselves about 100 times that day, thinking it was some kind of evil omen, and what do you know, uncle Fred keeled over the next day of a heart attack – proof positive. I wonder how many parishoners or whatever you wanna call them actually correctly attributed the incident to clumsy pall-bearers.

That was totally cool.

Answer by Question This
OMG! LMAO! St George nearly did that nun in!

That’s the second funniest thing I’ve seen happen in a church.

The funniest was a first communion ceremony. All the children were packed in a tight group around altar, in their suits and dresses. The church was not air-conditioned, was stacked with proud grandparents, and the temperature outside was pushing 100 degrees.

In the middle of the crowd of kids, a boy fainted from the heat. The teachers rushed him off the altar, while the priest plodded on with mass. Within seconds, a collective gasp rose the congregation. A girl had gone down on the edge of the altar. Two parents ran forward, while the priest began to sing the prayers, resolutely keeping the dignity.

To the suddenly-alert crowd, it was obvious that more children were swaying dangerously, and the teacher must have thought so as well, because she returned to the altar at a gallop and directed the kids to sit down. With an excess of sighs, shuffles, and territory battles, the children began to sit down cross-legged on the altar. Still the priest determinedly ignored these odd happenings, raising his eyes and the chalice to heaven.

Just when it looked as though the children were safely on the ground, a small boy next to the priest staggered backwards, pitched forward, doubled over, and vomited all over the priest. Mass was stopped.

P.S. In all fairness to the stony saints, the Italians are making a saint that produce solar energy. 😀 Did you see?

The statue probably went to heaven. But you know where that man is going.

Answer by laholly1
Tsk, tsk, tsk. Oh dear.

The video was hilarious. And sad. And unfortunate.

If I read you right, one of the points made is that if those who pray to saints could manage to stop a moment, and consider for a nanosecond, it might dawn on them that they are making obeisance to a bunch of ceramic and paint.

From the informal surveys I have made over the years (really) it seems that those who pray before saints are of two groups. (Maybe more. But I’ve only heard two explanations.) Some really are praying to the figurine, as if it truly were the saint. Some use the figure as a means to focus attention, and then the petition is made to the saint…I guess in much the same way that a prayer is made to God…sort of to this invisible presence or divinity, right?

It’s hard to sort fact from legend–or downright fiction–but my understanding is that those who have been canonized were actually alive, and here on earth at one time. Miracles (I think it’s at least three documented) are attributed to them.

Now it’s the whole business of miracles that gets us into trouble– which leads me to an HBO documentary/exposé which aired back in 1999 called “A Question of Miracles.” Two well-known faith healers, Benny Hinn and Reinhard Bonnke, were followed over a period of months of “open unprejudieced investigation of their methods and their claims” (Director Anthony Thomas).

The film is absolutely riveting–one of the few things I have watched on television that held my attention from beginning to end. The two evangelists do not fare well in the documentary; in the end they appear as the despicable scoundrels that they are, and any viewer–Christian or otherwise with even an ounce of integrity or honesty–would be compelled to agree.

But that is not the entire story. There’s more than meets the eye.

I stumbled across Benny Hinn while channel surfing back in–oh, maybe 1990. I caught a glimpse of something happening just as I clicked to the next channel, so went back. What had caught my eye was someone on stage being caught as they fell over backwards. When I found the channel again, I stayed and watched as one after another came up on stage, was given a slight tap on the forehead by this preacher–or maybe just an uplifted palm in their direction–and BOOM! down they went.

This phenomenon, with which you are no doubt familiar, is called “being slain in the spirit,” or “falling in the spirit.” It actually does happen, and goes way back–to Biblical times and before–as far as documented cases are concerned.

So I watched this show night after night, not to be swept up in the raw emotion, but to look for any cords or switches or cues that would belie the authenticity of these people falling out like flies.

I couldn’t find any. The man really does have the touch. But my question is this: just because someone can touch another person and that person will lose all motor control and fall over backward does not necessarily mean that that force is God, or The Holy Spirit.

So what is it? I don’t know. Maybe nothing more than neural activity caused by the escalating emotionality in these events. But maybe not. Maybe it’s this force many folks like to call “God.” In Taoism it is “chi” — the life force.

Believe it or not, I found “A Question of Miracles” on youtube. It is well worth the watch. For those averse to these sorts of shows of mass hysteria, Part 1 may be difficult to watch. But it is an essential scaffolding for Part 2, which investigates changes in the frontal lobe and temporal lobe of mankind that have occurred over the millenia.

I would tie all of this to your question about saints, but I am quite sure I have run out of space to write. If you are interested in a little more of my interminable rambling, maybe you could post a Part 2 to this question…..?

✰✪✰ In 2010, I predicted the exact date of the August 23, 2011 – Mineral, Virginia 5.8 magnitude earthquake that rocked the entire East Coast of the United States and up through Canada creating more than $300 million dollars in damage.
I had also seen a fantastic amount of water, coming in shortly thereafter. I therefore notified the appropriate government authorities to warn them.
17 Hours after the quake, Hurricane Irene made landfall less than 300 miles from the epicenter of the Earthquake.
Damage estimates from this hurricane, throughout the United States were near $19.6 billion dollars, which made it the 5th costliness hurricane in United States history
The coastlines were evacuated and lives were saved because of this prediction and appropriate warnings.
