[quote]My biggest advice is to go into the deal knowing you're likely to walk out without a car.
Give them your price and don't budge. If they don't come down, say thanks but no thanks and walk out.
They can ALWAYS come down more than they say.[/quote]
Yeah, this was several years back,...

Go a little bit lower than your jawline when shaving your neck. At the jaw looks odd. I like mine to wrap slightly under the jaw, and sort of tuck in down there. I use under my chin as the starting point. You don't want it to abrubtly stop at your chin or it would look weird.

Eat large amounts of food regularly. Start out with a big breakfast of bacon and eggs, some biscuits, and when you're done pour some bourbon in your coffee to get things started. Drink mixed drinks for a while, then switch to beer. Eat a big lunch of chicken wings, fries, onion rings, and wash it...
