This is a great question!

Get a cat!

I’m not following how being a vegan, which dictates which foods you choose to eat, relates to your approval or disapproval of the natural events that animals are using, right now, to survive, including hunting and killing for meat.

There are live critters on your kitchen counters, leaving disgusting Continue reading “How would you handle a mouse infestation if you were a vegan? Would your only option to be to get a cat? (Quora stuff)”

https://qr.ae/TUyA1D

It’s possible the Advantage is not working. It’s also possible your dog has an allergy or rash that could be caused by a different type of bug bite, like a mosquito. There are also other possibilities. Read on!

I do want to take the opportunity to share a story, about how veterinarians prescribe things sometimes. Be careful out there!

Social Media Addiction is Real!

How do top students overcome social media addiction?
Mark Urso, Author of “A Candle Lit” (from Quora) …

They can take classes in programming social media applications!

Then they could become dealers, abandoning their morals and pushing social media applications on others, especially good-looking girls, to try to get them hooked, and turn them into pushers as well. If they can’t afford the classes, they should look into stealing money from strangers. Once they’re social media lord kingpins, they should learn Spanish, and go to some of the seedier parts of Mexico to pick up new social media applications and bring them across the border illegally. This can be extremely profitable. Continue reading “Social Media Addiction is Real!”

songwriting tips, microphones

Mark Urso, Owner at River Song Music (Quora answer)

Maybe a Shure SM58. An SM48, which is extremely similar, can be had for fifty bucks. You’ll have a little money left over!

Cheap street is the SM58. It’s a standard mic, with a standard polar pattern, and is usually used on stage, but since we don’t know what your singer sounds like, what your singer prefers, or if you’re looking for a particular sound, why not have a standard-performing mic? It won’t cost $500 – maybe $100.

It’s far more important how your room sounds, how your singer Continue reading “If I can only afford one microphone under $500 to record vocals with what should I get?”

A Quora answer by Mark Urso, Author of “A Candle Lit”:

The problem with AA is something that happens very early, when a person, a “sufferer,” is first introduced to the idea, sees a pamphlet or checks out his first meeting … the system can easily lose its credibility and feel either like it’s extreme, or members are jumping to conclusions …

People are simply scared away before they join.

In my book, “A Candle Lit,” I call them “leavers-before-they-enter.”

The three biggest problems are …

Ambiguous Permanence: It’s never been proven alcoholism is permanent, but members commonly insist it is. This is a credibility hit if the new person thinks about it … To make matters confusing, the words “alcoholic” Continue reading “Why is AA So Ineffective?”
