I was sick of taking cruises and traveling with other 50 plus crowd that did not want to do anything but eat and watch shows. My wife and I wanted to exercise our minds and we discovered roadscholar really by accident. A friend we met on a cruise told us about this site and we have love it ever since. I cannot recommend this site enough.

Alex Jones really doesn't hold back at all. Some views are a little scary yet they hold real truth in them. Thanks to the recent reviewers who showed me this website here on SJ. Somewhat of an eye opener in a good way.

Free is Free. Why waste money on a paid dating service when you get what you want for free. I do not think the quality of people is better on a paid service those people are maybe just more desperate.

I have only made about 30 dollars from this website but it has been fun to at least sell some of my animal photos. Taking photos of very exotic animals or places really helps because those are the ones that are the most difficult to get.

Was thinking of a trip to India and wanted some help planning the trip. The people here seem pretty good and they do IM yahoo chat to help you. I have not actually paid for a trip yet and am still in the planning phase, so I can't say for sure that they will come through for you but I do think they are the real thing. If I get my bonus and I'm off to India I will let you all know how it turns out.

I had to hire a roof repair guy and had no idea of how much it would cost. It was very useful to read this site and learn about the different costs of the various types of roofs before speaking to the repairman. I haven't used it for much else yet, but it seems to have costs for just about everything.

Quality website, reliable and rock solid prices. They have this cool sunglass photo app where you can see what you look like wearing sunglasses. I am thinking of buying contact lenses through them but haven't tried that yet.

I used to be part of the hollywood video power play system to rent my games locally until they jacked up their prices. I found gamefly to be cheaper and they have a wider variety of games. The game you want is almost always in stock. The price to sign up is cheap too. If you sign up for a couple months and then try to quit, they will 1 month later send you an email with an even lower price per month. I quit because I am poor but then they sent me an email with a ridiculously low price that I couldn't refuse. If you want a deal, sign up for a month and then quit....then sign up again :)

I took at look at this site and while they may be just another one of those NYC photo gear scam sites out there, I bet they actually do ship some of the products they sell online because THEY COST MORE THAN BEST BUY!! Take this for example, Canon 5D MII for
List Price: $2,999.95
Our Price: $2,899.00
Hello?!? I can go down the street to Best Buy and they have it for $2599. Maybe this site is a scam, but if they are trying to rip people off they are not doing it with fake low prices as some of their prices are ridiculously high!

Thanks guys for pointing out this website, I downloaded the app to my iPhone but it cost me $35!!! I think that is a rip off, BUT, I can now log directly on to my work PC from anywhere in the world from my phone. That is priceless.

Best Tapout gear - I have been buying tapout stuff for ages now and this site has the best selection around! The only thing is I wish they had more gear for girls as my wife wears this stuff too.

Don't buy speakers from Circuit City..get them here - It never ceases to amaze me when people buy crappy Panasonic speakers from big retail chains like circuit city. There are places online where you can get speakers custom made which are 10x better than what you get at these retail stores. Though, I'm guessing that most people out there don't even know the difference between a good speaker and a POS speaker. This company has some of the best speakers around for the price and you are not paying for all of the marketing and shelf space that you are when you buy your speakers from best buy or circuit city.

Avoid Monster cables....get cheap cables and AV gear - It always makes me laugh when I see people at Best Buy picking up the overpriced Monster cables and accessories. Anyone really into AV gear gets their cables and accessories online. This is one of the better places to get your gear.

Software for website design and mock ups - I used to make most of my mock ups and wireframes using illustrator, but it took forever and I couldn't test user interface that well because none of the button or links actually worked. But with this software, I can make mock ups in about half the time as compared to using illustrator and all of the links actually work.

The final output of the software is just HTML code that is fairly functional. You can make drop down lists, working text fields and more just in a few seconds. It takes longer than that just to make those types of items in illustrator or photoshop.

The only disadvantage is the learning curve of the software. If you are just making a simple website, this is overkill and for the price of the software you are better off buying dreamweaver or something like that. However if you are creating a complex website or designing multiple sites for clients, then it is definitely worthwhile to invest both the time and money into this software. Preproduction is everything in good site design and this software can dramatically help with that.

great product with shady marketing - I tried this product and I really do think I feel better using it. I know it is subjective, but I don't feel as tired all the time anymore. They have quite a few doctors and celebrities promoting this product but what I can't get past is the pyramid scheme of selling it. Apparently they have a billion dollars worth of juice and they are one of the fasting growing privately held companies in the US right now because of their clever marketing schemes. I feel like this is Amway for food supplements. Anyways, I believe in the product, but does anyone know if this is just one big marketing scam?
