Yoga vs Vodka

  Are you a Yoga man or Vodka man? I used to practice yoga regularly for couple of years when I was in my early 30s, mainly to attract girls because I believed many of them find Yoga guys very attractive and cool. How miserable I was.. Oh dear. Would you use Vodka or Yoga to attract women? Then on a boring Sunday night I was watching a film ( I really can't remember what it was called) and they said something about the miracles of Vodka. I tried to ignore it, because I never liked vodka, but something made me to listen to it again. And I did. The guy (he looked like a wise but stupid old guy) was saying " They say milk gives you strength. Drink three glasses and try moving a wall. You can't. Drink three shots of vodka and it moves all by itself ". This interestingly strong saying made me grab a bottle of vodka and have a go. And did... The result was a total disaster. But it worked. I felt more attractive than doing yoga for single chicks. I was the coolest guy in tow

Best Japanese Fluorocarbon Line For All Type of Fishing One of the biggest dreams of fishermen is using an invisible fishing line, so fish can't see it under the water. A simple wish.. But it wasn't that easy to make such an amazing thing. Thanks to fast growing post war chemical and industrial developments, Fluorocarbon entered our life in 1969. But it took some long years to be used for fishing. And this magical line has become one of the most essential items in our tackle boxes since the beginning of 2000's.

Meanwhile some companies in Japan started investing in new technologies mixing with their traditional craftsmanship.

As we chatted more and more, I noticed that none of them knew they actually could catch lots of fish in the reservoirs as well. They didn't even know freshwater fishing is possible on this tiny and dry Mediterranean island. To be honest, it didn't surprise me.
