|Do you have an Athlete's Foot or something like that near by? Go in store, and ask them their advice for basketball footwear. Explain the types of motions you're putting your feet through, so they can give you good shoes to match your needs. Then go online, find a supplier who is distributing them in the size you need and buy them. Just be aware that suppliers sell in sizes based of the region their in normally, so you might want to get the actual region size and compare it on this chart:|
Or buy them instore, whatever.

Sacrifice ~: All creatures you control gain flying and +1+1 until end of turn.

|RCCC #548: Another Hijacking - Always bet on black (9) | Posted on June 28, 2012, 2:20 a.m.|
|Does it have to be about creatures? If so...|
At the beginning of your upkeep, search your library for a card, reveal that card to all players and put it into your hand. You then discard a card of your choice from your hand and lose 2 life.
"You'll have your inspiration, human... at a price"
(Maybe 3 life? I'm not too sure how strong this would be.)
I had an idea for a spell as well:
Each player sacrifices a creature. Add B to your mana pool for each creature sacrificed this way.
Flashback: Discard your hand but one card and pay BBB
Sedrik turned away from the dark corner of his room, sure that the movement he saw from the corner of his eye was just his imagination.
(I'm a bit iffy on this card as well. At worse it functions like Innocent Blood, but it can be useful after a prolonged spell war with a locked board. Is the flashback too much, or not enough?)

Each player draws 2 cards, then discards 2 cards of their choice.

|Thinking about getting a Nape piercing (back of neck). Advice please (13) | Posted on June 24, 2012, 4:42 a.m.|
|I've got a bunch of piercings, but the nape is one I haven't got. Think on your past piercings, like I did, and ask yourself a few questions.|
- How easy will it be for me to clean until it's healed?
- How easily will clothing I wear snag on it?
- Do you sleep on your back? Will that piercing prevent you from sleeping in that position? (I have 2 helix piercings in my left ear, but I was unable to sleep on that side for a few weeks because I didn't want to damage the new wounds.
- How often does that area of your body get wet? Can you easily keep water off it?
- Do you often have that part of your body bumping into things, or do you scratch that area often?
Personally, I say go for it. It doesn't sound painful, since it's just a skin pierce, and as a plus its also easily concealed in case your work doesn't like it. Good luck!

|Home Delivery, which is a short story by Stephen King isn't too bad. As I recall, it's found in Skeleton Crew.|
|Should I do Bankruptcy? (25) | Posted on June 12, 2012, 4 a.m.|
|Don't declare bankruptcy over such a paltry debt. Talk to your credit card company, explain your situation. At the least, you should be able to get a payment extension, or a period of grace or something. Talk to your family, explain your situation. If someone can help, take them up on it, and pay them back ASAP. Take every cent that's not going towards keeping yourself alive/looking for work and put it towards paying off your debt. No luxuries for awhile? Those are the breaks, its better to do it hard on yourself than be in debt. Spend all your free time looking for work. Try EVERYWHERE. Flipping burgers? Take it, it helps you pay off your debt faster. Don't set a standard for work, take what you can get.|
Draw up a budget on what your spendings are. As mentioned previously, cut your cell and cable. Get the cheap food brands. Don't go out for meals or drinks. It might suck, but remind yourself why you're doing it. It'll make you remember never to go it again.
There are only two times in life you should ever go into debt: buying a vehicle, and buying a house. If you can't afford the rest, don't buy it. Simple. Cut up your credit cards and throw them away, they're a trap if you're not disciplined.

|Multiplayer "leave me alone" deck (13) | Posted on May 30, 2012, 3:01 a.m.|
|Throw things like Tanglewire, Smokestack, and Ensnaring Bridge in there. For win conditions, why not try out Coalition Victory? You'll be playing 5 colour, so it'll fit nicely. Test of Endurance and Sovereign of Felidar work, use them if you can. Don't ever think that winning outside of combat is cheap, winning through combat is just one way of winning.|
Oh, and Meekstone.
|(another) whats a good way to pay for college (2) | Posted on May 29, 2012, 2:10 a.m.|
|Pick up part time work. You'll be breaking your back managing work, school and study, but sometimes that's your only option. If you want to achieve, you have to earn it.|

Whenever a creature attacks you, it takes 2 damage unless it has flying. During your upkeep, pay 4 life or sacrifice Path of Daggers.

|A question for high school and college students (9) | Posted on May 27, 2012, 12:21 a.m.|
The responses in this thread in a nutshell.
Anyways, just act as calmly and professionally as you can. Explain your argument thoroughly, and be sure to questionthe validity of what proof, if any, is being held against you. Ever see a good lawyer or debater argue a point? That's what you should aim for.

|I finished it a few weeks back. Personally, I found it to be a good read, better than I expected it to be compared to what King writes these days (opinions). I suggest reading the series through from the start, in this order.|
It's a decent series, you should enjoy it. Unless you don't, anyway. And to the poster above me, it's not all that long, you could read it in a week or two if you're a slow reader.
