Who knew figuring out what underwear to wear (or not!) while running could be such a challenge?! http://bit.ly/P2Pnuv. (Hat tip to the running subreddit for suggestions)

As an avid runner I actually found this interesting +Ruth Carter. You're right when you say "women know this more than men." It's something I haven't ever really considered to this degree. I guess we guys got the better end of the bargain on this one.

Contracts are your Friends: http://bit.ly/1n38QY4. Don't be afraid or turned off by them. It's just a document that keeps everyone on the same page & you can customize them to fit your needs (as long it's legal).

My current favorite contract is Leonard and Sheldon's roommate agreement on The Big Bang Theory. That thing is filled with crazy yet awesome provisions.

This is so disappointing - The bill that would have legalized fantasy gaming in Arizona  fails: http://bit.ly/1gnI5rF.

Interesting +Ruth Carter. Makes one wonder if the tribal casinos have even looked at empirical data. We have fantasy betting in Las Vegas and, news flash, our casinos are doing just fine. The idea that casinos would somehow be hurt by fantasy betting is absurd.

Last week I participated in a phone survey about pedestrian safety in Phoenix. The survey didn't ask the right questions about what contributes to risks to pedestrians. The main threat to pedestrians in Phoenix is simple & obvious - stupid people: http://bit.ly/1cUJPh4.

All good points, but, at least for me, the times I've almost been hit have been on sidewalks crossing driveways or intersections, never from jaywalking (or running across the street really fast).

AZ drivers just don't care about stopping before sidewalks or crosswalks, it seems. To make it easier, I usually just go around the rear of the car. Even though I KNOW they're in the wrong, that's simpler than being hit and suing.

If you use ghostwriters or a marketing company for your blog's content, here are some of the legal issues you should consider: http://bit.ly/PUknxX.

The ownership issue is something most don't even consider +Ruth Carter. It's something attorneys need to be mindful of since a blog article can literally return value for the rest of the time one is an attorney. It's interesting to think that there are attorneys, who have build their practice off of a blog, that don't even realize they don't own the IP that's driving business.
Thanks for posting this, I wasn't aware of the ownership issue.

New Post: I tried to pack for a weekend trip and only bring clothes that I'd wear with nothing extra for a just-in-case moment: http://bitly.com/R0h218. I actually did a better job being a minimalist in regards to my clothes than to my tech.

I asked Facebook and Reddit what they thought of lawyers - geez you people hate us: http://bit.ly/1dK4Cz1. We really need to have a No Jerks policy in the profession.

Not you... but the non-existant (or at least rare) stereotype of a lawyer? Yes.

I joined KDP Select on Amazon which means I get to run promotions on my book. So for the first time ever, and for one week only - The Legal Side of Blogging: How Not to get Sued, Fired, Arrested, or Killed is available for only $1.99!

I picked this week to run my special because it coincides with the future birthday of Captain Kirk: http://bit.ly/1ohnBHN

Enjoy!

Capitol Collision did an awesome job on my car. They helped coordinate repairs with the insurance company, my rental car, and walked me through the whole process. I was in a little fender bender so they were able to fix my car and repaint my bumper in one day. They also cleaned the entire interior of my car - I swear it looks better today than the day I bought it. I also love that Capitol is family/locally owned so I know my money is going right back into my community.
