• Can I get a Cash Plus prepaid card without having proof of address?

If I decide to complete the online application without having any proof of my UK address, won't I later run into some issues/problems? And will i even be able to get it?

  • Distilled Water vs Mineral water.?

    So I'm thinking of doing some water fasting. (only drink water and not eat any food for a specific amount of time) I found out that some people advise using distilled water while outright condemning mineral water. This site, for example, - http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1345... Quote: "The worst possible choice you can make is mineral water. The common sources of mineral water are (1) tap water and (2) bottled mineral water. The minerals in mineral water are inorganic and therefore worse than useless to the body. Inorganic minerals are not only unavailable as co-enzymes; worse than that, they crystallize in the body, both inside and outside the circulatory system. When they crystallize outside the circulatory system, they cause such problems as arthritis. When they crystallize inside the circulatory system, they are deposited in the walls of your arteries and, over the years, contribute to the plaque formation of atherosclerosis." Now, why the hell this is the first time I've heard of something like this? If mineral water is supposedly so harmful, why the hell has no one done anything about it? This makes me think that the above text is pure misinformation as it goes completely against common knowledge. Or am I mistaken? Could someone clarify which one is better? (especially while fasting)

    "The YLL metric essentially corresponds to the number of deaths multiplied by the standard life expectancy at the age at which death occurs, and it can be rated according to social preferences" What i don't get is the "social preferences" part.. How does it relate to the rest of the sentence? What is it supposed to mean?... show more

    A reference to this question: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?... So, do people indeed freeze when they're about to get hit by a car or by a falling piano etc? Movies certainly show this kind of stuff often.. People just stupidly stare or cross their arms in front of their faces and that's it, they stay there - hello death/severe injuries. I recall myself almost getting hit by a car..Twice...Blame my carelessness. However, each time I managed to jump out of the way almost the very moment I noticed the oncoming danger.. Just barely evaded the impact - a few more meters and I would be done for... I didn't think, I acted purely on instinct... So does this freezing thing apply to everyone or just to some? Does it vary? Do some freeze up while some others in their shoes do the opposite? Can you tell me something from your own experience?

    A few days my fridge started acting strange - i notice that the fridge temp was lower than usual.. Normally it was about -18°C, but now it was just -7°C.. I figured that perhaps ice formation might be causing this so I plugged it from the grid to let it melt.. After it was ice-free i plugged it back in... Temperature dropped to -2°C and stayed there... Over the course of the last few days it has risen up to +4°C..... What's ridiculous is that the upper part of my fridge (not the freezer) is working normally - temperature near 0°C... The temperature control thingy - i can turn it in whatever direction i want - to min; to max - no difference.. Also - the temperature display is flashing - from showing me the freezer temperature to a 2 letter acronym - "AL" - perhaps an error code of some sort? What could be the problem? How do i fix it?

But if such a thing happened in reality - would I really collapse like that? Could it be possible to remain conscious and even retain the ability to walk/seek for help at least for a few minutes? I mean, the human body can be extremely sturdy at times and the way it's depicted in the movies just looks so pathetic... Anyone? What would happen?

    Hey guys, I hope you can help me out with some information. Alright, I'll begin with describing myself a bit: I'm an 18 year old male from Eastern Europe. And I would like to find a job for the summer months (June, July, August). I'm still in high-school (which is the reason I need a job only for summer). Also, I have no previous job experience (obviously) which in fact is the very reason I want a job in the first place. Firstly, I need some ideas of what kind of jobs would be appropriate for me (basically, jobs where no previous experience is required). Secondly, a good place (a site) where to look for such job vacancies. If you can, please lay out some recommendations based on your personal experience. Anything that would help me with my cause will do. I hope I successfully got across what I wanted to say. Oh, and I can speak English, as well as write in it (hopefully that's an advantage). Looking forward to your answers! Thanks!
