Here are 5 things you should know.
1. If you’re an avid smoker and you develop a sudden distaste for cigarettes, you may be coming down with the acute liver disease.
If you suddenly lose all desire to smoke and you think it’s too good to be true, it probably is. A common symptom of acute hepatitis is an aversion to tobacco in smokers.
This may come with other obvious symptoms such as fever or headaches, but a tell-tale sign is the inexplicable avoidance of tobacco or even alcohol or caffeine.

2. Most states liquor licenses don’t permit alcohol to be exclusive to members only at places like Costco.
Most states will require a members-only store such as Costco to sell their liquor to anyone. You just have to go up and say you’re only there to buy alcohol. It’s a great way to save money on alcohol.
Here is a list of states that allow it:
3. Hitting 0 – 9 on the keyboard will skip 0 – 90% of the way through a Youtube video.
4. Why movie theater concessions cost so much.
Basically, movie theaters make next to nothing on the ticket say they make around 10-20%. The rest goes to the movie studios. Companies like Disney have a lot of power. For their big movies, you have to give them around 70% or more, and you have to keep the movie in the biggest auditorium for 4 weeks, regardless of sales. If you don’t, there’s another 5 percent fee.
Movie theaters only stay afloat due to concessions. So yes, that candy and soda are expensive. But that pays for basically everything. The concession staff, the box office staff, the staff that clean all that popcorn and garbage up after every single showing of every movie. The overnight cleaning staff. Everything.
There’s a saying that “Theaters aren’t in the movie business. They’re in the popcorn and candy business”. And it’s so true. It’s even worse now considering Netflix and people streaming at home. So you see theaters trying to make money any way they can. Alcohol, game arcades, events, ads, cheap ticket days. Whatever can work. Many have subscription plans now, where it’s 8-10 a month. Includes a movie ticket per month. 20 percent off concessions. Things like that. For frequent movie watchers, it makes sense.
5. If you really want to support animal rescuing don’t support PETA, support Animal aid unlimited instead.
PETA doesn’t believe in pets and that having pets is cruel, they kill all injured dogs or cats that people give or they find, PETA’s goal isn’t to end animal cruelty, its to end having pets, animal aid unlimited instead is much better to support, they have many many videos of them rescuing all kinds of animals in India, saving them and then having people adopt them.
