After having his phone stolen, the thief failed to properly wipe it. This guy created a tumblr feed dedicated to posting pictures that the thief captures with his phone. Possibly NSFW.

Remove the flow restrictor from your showerhead to dramatically improve water pressure in the shower.

Warning: Your water bill may be higher as you enjoy longer and more intense showers.

Introduction
My name is Austin, and I'm all about software and gadgets. If it has to do with tech, I could probably talk all day about it. Right now I'm working on my skills in programming and video/sound editing. I am also learning Spanish since that is a big part of living in Florida.

I just ate here. Came here on a whim after a night in DC. I'm from Seattle where much good Indian is to be had almost anywhere. Out here in Reston I wasn't expecting much, but even then Paradise Indian was a letdown on many levels. I start all reviews at 5 stars, lets see how they earned themselves a 1-star score when I came here with a party of 5 on a Saturday night. -1. The drinks. Myself and another ordered Chai tea. It tasted burnt and old, similar to how Twinnings tea might taste if its boiled or left steeping in a pot for too long. When I questioned my server about it, he said it was traditional spices that we weren't used to. Not only was his reply offensive, it was inaccurate. Chai should never taste burnt. -2. The service. While the appearance of the wait staff was impeccible with black and white formal wear, their service did not match. One of our party ordered a side of paneer that never arrived. All but the primary server mumbled. Curry was spilled upon delivery at the table. The primary server was dismissive. They were all very nice, but not friendly or professional. As I've seen in at similar establishments in Florida I believe some may be illegally here or even possibly trafficked. -3. The food. We ordered paneer stuffed naan. Rather than being dry and fluffy, it was greasy like Pizza. The rice was dry, slightly discolored. The masala did not have minced onions but instead full chunks. The chicken tikka was very dry. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. This is a dish I can easily make at home way better than I had here, and if me, a regular untrained guy from Seattle can make it much better, I'd rather not pay for the quality I had here. -4. Atmosphere. Multiple TVs playing inappropriate Bollywood music videos. What. The. Hell. Kids are eating in here while they have scantily clad women and men dancing on the TV with strange commercials in-between. The wait staff also just seemed to look around and watch us eat. It was also very strange the very large number of staff they had when the restaurant was not busy by any means. I will not be returning here ever again. I can buy a frozen palak paneer and have better taste and service from my microwave.

My roof was leaking and caused extensive water damage to my bathroom. Nova Home Repair was actually run by Construction Systems and I was thankful. Everything was repaired to better-than-new conditions and they were priced reasonably compared to quotes I received from other contractors.

Useless. I came in because I was worried about pain in my throat. I'm only 20 years old so pain is very unexpected. He spent all but 5 minutes, pulled on my tongue, and looked down my throat with a mirror. It was extremely uncomfortable but he assured me it was better than having a scope shoved down it. He then said the problem was acid reflux. He was no help as to the cause of the reflux, and offered no way to prevent it. Instead, he proceeded to prescribe me his pharmaceutical partners prescription medication. I understand he makes a profit-share from each prescription of the stuff he writes, but the cost of it was 10x more than over-the-counter stuff that does the exact same thing. 2 Months later I received a bill for $300 and I still suffered from "acid reflux." I won't be seeing this hack ever again. If I can, I'll be contesting payment as well. Next time I will be seeing a Gastroenterologist, not wasting my time with these swindlers who claimed they could help me. This goes out to you Dr. Lee... If you can't treat it, don't accept appointments for it.

Virgin Mobile has possibly the worst customer serve I've ever experienced. First off, all of their help is out-sourced to India. Normally I have no trouble understanding people with Indian accents, but their service center is filled with ignoramus'. Not only do they not speak english, they also don't understand it. Additionally they do not know how to answer any of the questions I was asking, I'd willingly pay $100+ a month to talk to an intelligent English or Spanish speaking person. I have a sprint phone, the EVO 4G, and all I wanted to know was if I could use it on their service. After being transferred between 3 different people who couldn't understand English I simply hung up and wrote this review. I'm absolutely disgusted by their service and I can't imagine ever being one of their customers.

It's amazing what soda blasting can do. I watched as the blaster they sent out cleaned every stone surface. It looked better than new, there was no dirt left, and there was also no cleanup involved. There was a little bit of baking soda left over in the area but it naturally washed away after a couple days. I will definitely be using sodablasting from now on rather than trying to powerwash, and I definitely won't do sandblasting as long as soda is an option. It's amazing. My only complaint is that the machines they use are rather loud, but it doesn't take very long for them to finish so just don't plan on napping while they are cleaning.

Got foamy oil because of them. I bought some tires from them which turned out great. Then they offered me some coupons to come back for oil changes. Not only did they give me bad oil, they charged me extra for it. My car takes 5w20 rather than the typical 5w30 and so they had a $20 "exotic oil fee." Unfortunately for them, I'm not some smuck -5w20 and 5w30 cost exactly the same price at any auto store or even Walmart. On top of that I checked the oil immediately after the check and it was foamy and dirty, but even still they refused to refund me. They sell decent tires, but I hope this place gets shut down.
