  • jrw10 - Highly Readable and Relatable

    This is one of the best books about the desperate inner life and struggles of many wives I have ever read. It's honest and unashamed to drag ugly truths out from where they lay carefully hidden for years and years.

  • Jasen - Decent sound, but suffer from bad quality plastic

    I bought these because I needed a headset to use while I was at work and had to keep a on-ear headset on my head as well, and these fit the bill pretty well.

  • Brent - Great Jerky

    This is wonderful beef jerky. It's not too salty. it's not too hard. It tastes very natural and isn't at all overwhelming. I wish the pieces were slightly larger but I can't get everything I want so I am more than happy to give this 5 stars. My only true complaint is that shipping is very slow (so be prepared).

  • IreneDAdler - Light and handy

    I hate cleaning in general, and vacuuming in particular due to the noise, but after moving into an apartment with hardwood floors, I realized I had to find a way to frequently clean the floor because walking on a dusty hard floor is gross :( I tried Swiffer first, but it was not the ideal thing for picking up cat litter, and there's a small carpet in front of the litter box, which obviously can't be cleaned with a Swiffer. I decided to try this vacuum after reading the reviews here and I'm really glad I did. It's not the 100% ideal solution to my situation, but it's pretty darn close, and I think I'd have to invent something myself to get anything that works better.

  • Amazon Customer - A Cooking Revolution!

    I have a thrift store microwave, and I must admit it was largely unused until this brilliant tome entered my life. You see, the keypad was "jacked" according to the gentleman(?) who sold it to me. This is apparently not a feature to be desired. When I received the book as a consolation prize at the Moose Lodge mime karaoke contest, the title piqued my interest. Turns out that magical "One" key mentioned in the title IS the only key needed to cook with a microwave. My Pinterest brag shots now include Victory Lentil Stew (11:11), Afternoon Delight Melange (1:11) and Quick Sushi (0:01). I'm waiting with bated breath for sequels, as I have been inspired to have the keypad fixed. Can't wait to see what can be done with the "Two" button!

  • Jacob Fletcher - Very Good Anti-Inflammatory

    This seems to be a very good anti-inflammatory and analgesic, particularly in certain tissues. In my case, I find that this, paired with curcumin, taken on an empty stomach at least two hours after and one hour before a meal, almost completely eliminate a particular soreness I've been having. There seems to be a great synergistic effect between these two, because neither of them worked particularly well for me individually. Definitely give it a try, though. The worst thing that can happen is you'll lower your blood pressure, which is probably too high right now anyway.
