Isn't it great when you're at a social gathering and you can drop in little tidbits of information?  It's like a super power.  People come to expect your wisdom and dissemination of knowledge.  How do you keep up in a seemingly endless array or subjects?  

You don't need long hours in the library, you just need a subscription to a relatively unknown publication called Bottom Line - Personal.  It can be delivered to your home every two weeks for They have two tag-lines:

One the cover: "The World's Best Inside Information"
On the website: "Home of America's Leading Experts on Everything!"

That's pretty good self praise.   Let's look into my latest issue dated November 15th, 2009.


Front Page - Don't Stand In Front Of The Microwave.  


This is an article about the dangers of radiation levels in our everyday life.  They advise limited use of cell phones, cordless phones & wireless Internet.  They recommend leaving the room when the microwave is on.
QUICK TEST TO AMAZE YOUR FRIENDS:  If you put your cell phone in the microwave (don't cook it please) and then call that cellphone and it rings, that means that phone signal was able to leak in and that microwaves can leak out. 

This article seems a bit paranoid to me, but it is good information to be aware of.  They interviewed Magda Hava, PhD. "She is a leading expert on radio-frequency radiation, electromagnetic fields, dirty electricity and ground current".  Good enough for me, plus the microwave experiment will make me look good at some point.

WEALTH BUILDERS - Low-risk ways to earn up to 5% on your cast.

This is a story on how to maximize your $$ and they went to Charles Farrel, JD, LLM @ Northstar Investment Advisors.  They broke the story down into scenarios:
  • If you need access to the money IMMEDIATELY - they suggest a high-yield money-market account (MMA) at a bank or credit union, or high yield checking account at a small bank, or open a checking account at an online bank.  They offer the pros/cons of each type of account as well as some examples of financial institutions to check out.
  • If you may need the money ON A FEW DAYS NOTICE - they suggest a high yield savings account at an online bank.
  • If you may need the money WITHIN A FEW MONTHS - they suggest buying a 9-12 liquid or "no penalty" CD.
  • If you need the money WITHIN ONE YEAR
  • If you need the money WITHIN THREE YEARS
As you can see, they give you just enough information to sound like you're giving your friends some competent advise.  In reality you are passing on good questions for them to ask when investigating their own 


But Wait...There's More

I know, you're impressed so far.  There is so much more.  I won't go into detail, but more examples of what you'll find in just THIS issue are:
  • Safety - $10 windshield spray to repel rain and snow
  • How green tea is good for your health.
  • Online Security tips for Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn
  • Self Help - 7 Tricks to Stay Positive In an Often Negative World
  • Kitchen Help - A Master Chef's Simple Secret to Sharpening Knives
  • Travel - Offbeat museums of Americana

They have a website at www.bottomlinesecrets.com where you will see other variations on the original, but I recommend the Bottom Line Personal as a great one-stop-shop.  

At the site you can also get a FREE WEEKLY NEWSLETTER with some useful information.

Another useful tip:  If you don't see a great deal for the subscription go to the "Gift Subscription" and give the gift to yourself for $29! :)

So get yourself an audience with the greatest experts on everything and arm yourself with just enough knowledge to sound impressive in any situation.  Your aim for awesomeness will also gain you some important knowledge that you can use in your everyday life.  Who knows, maybe you'll use the links to get more information or just start using Bing or Google to look more stuff up.

If you see me putting a phone in the microwave, go ahead and whisper to that hottie that you're trying to impress and tell her what I'm doing.  

Bottom Line:  We'll both look brilliant.

When I was a little kid, my parents told me never to stand in front of the microwave or my head would turn into a bunch of snakes, so I don't stand in front of microwaves when they're on anymore. I don't know know about leaving the room though :P I love all those headlines, so I subscribed to the newsletter!  Can't wait to start receive my first one next week so that I can look... brilliant :D  Thanks for sharing, JD!
