A few years ago, I ran short on funds on my husband's birthday. I asked the Universe what to do, then went out for an early morning walk in Los Angeles. (read "The Secret"). The first road I crossed had something shining brightly in the middle of it. I picked it up. It was a Swiss army watch with a missing clasp pin. There was no way to find an owner on this heavily travelled street, so I wrapped it up and gave it to himself. He was delighted, but saddened when it fell of his wrist a year later due to a faulty clasp pin. This time I purchased a swiss army watch from my favorite horologist on Pico Boulevard,(Feldmar's) just before we moved half way across the continent. The new Swiss Army watch stopped and we had the battery replaced at the most respected horologist in the city. It stayed stopped! We packed the watch up and sent it back to Feldman's in Los Angeles, and Feldmar's sent it to Victorinox as the warranty was valid. What Victorinox said will surprise you. "We acknowledge the warranty, but we will not honor it!" Why? I said. "because someone else changed the battery"! I was shocked, and I smelled cop out. Feldmar's worked on the watch themselves and sent it back to us in working order. Feldmar's has replaced the battery in my own watch for 35 years and it has never needed anything else. It's a Tag Heuer. Now that's a watch worth your time.
A young girl wrote into Quora asking for advice about her mother, who is (was) on a respirator after a severe head injury. Without any other details a Quora staffer in another country answered her and told her to PULL THE PLUG! The obvious answer was to sit down with the medical team and family and make a joint, fully informed decision. What is this site doing, and how can it be encouraging life and death decisions, from people in other countries with different laws?
