Hien, what exactly does a moderator do? Did you notice I got Travel Guru status today??? Everyone feel free to congratulate me on my biggest TP milestone

Oh! CONGRATS!!!

As for me being a moderator... Well, I delete spams, remove obvious advertorial and email links in posts, fix errors in posts (e.g. broken quotes), and things like that. But I have my "territories" though. I can only do that in Asia, System Talk, and (just recently added) Off-Topic forums (Pete needs an extra pair of eyes on you guys here! ).

Cheers,
Hien

... In regards for being up (down) or down (up) on things, does it also mean in the US that when you debit an account you are really crediting that account, and when you are crediting an account you are really debiting that account? ...

Enron... could this be the reason why?!

I think the people in Enron got a hold of the slang and decided they were not really DOWN (slang) with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles used in this country and passed a memo around and through their accounting departments. Someone forgot to explain to them, as I just did, what it really meant. Hence, they got it all backwards.

Now they are feeling pretty down cause they are all in jail or going to jail. Maybe there were the ones starting the slang....hmmm....

I quit smoking last year - AM VERY PROUD OF SELF

When I went to college I got a bit ...um..."experimental" . Unfortunately, I got hooked on the damn cigarettes and couldnt/didnt want to kick them until last year.

The company I started work for were creating a Quit Smoking Programme for one of the Irish healthcare providers (VHI) and I had to research and write the project. In doing that, I was brainwashed into not smoking anymore. All the facts, figures, statistics, etc...went in and stayed in. I stopped enjoying smoking and one morning I just got up and said, that's it, I'm quitting. And I did.

My nose still goes up in the air when someone lights one up and the smell makes me think I'd like one...but I dont miss them at all now. I can run on the treadmill in the gym instead of feeling like throwing up afterwards! My hair and clothes smell lovely all the time, and I'm really noticing the difference in my pocket - 3,000 euro a year to be exact!

The smoking ban in Ireland was a massive help I have to say. The fact that I cant light up indoors now (coupled with the fact that I can be bothered running outside all the time) was a big factor in staying off them!

Hurray for me!

Smoking is fine. Its been around for thousands of years.
I think its okay. Cuz at times, you kinda need it. Knowing that it cuts the number of years living, shorter.

And [u]Smoking isn't FINE or FUN at ALL[/u} when it cost $12 for a pack.

In other words, not smoking saves losta cash.
