Finally! A pet hair remover that isn’t completely useless

Finally! A pet hair remover that isn’t completely useless

Some of you may know that in September 2017 I got my cat Moses officially “imported” from Canada to join me in Japan. The paperwork was a complete bitch and the whole process was a nightmare, including the costs… but totally worth it. He really is my best mate.

But one thing I really do not miss was his malted hair. It. Gets. Everywhere…

I’ve tried all sorts of “hacks” to remove it but it just becomes too much, in such a small apartment the build up of hair happens very quickly and due to Moses have such fine hair it really matts up with the carpet and is super hard to remove.

I’ve been searching for a solution, and I think I found it. I present the bissell pet hair eraser review, the greatest thing I have bought in the last 12 months.

A super powerful pet vacuum that just rips up hair. It’s cordless, hygenic, easy to clean and unclog. It is everything you want in such a device and I feel fucking stupid for not getting one sooner.

So for pet owners out there, do not despair. Grab yourself a pet vacuum. They kick ass.

Who can you turn to for a guarantor loan?

Who can you turn to for a guarantor loan?

In this day and age, it’s getting harder and harder to get by, never mind save for the likes of a house deposit. If you combine this with rising house prices then it’s almost impossible to climb the property ladder. So we are going to be talking about a possible solution to this issue, loans with a guarantor.

However, there is a way to tackle this problem, one such solution includes asking your parents, a friend or a close relative to act as guarantor.

What is a guarantor?

A guarantor is someone who is happy to take over your debt if you suddenly become unable to pay it. Such an individual can be used to apply for guarantor loans, credit cards, leases, insurance and various other loan-related products.

Who can act as my guarantor?

Most individuals will ask their parents to act as a guarantor, however, a guarantor is generally an adult who owns their own property. Such an individual must also have a good credit history.

What to do prior to enquiring about a guarantor

There are a number of factors to consider prior to asking a guarantor to help you with a loan. Such factors include printing out copies of your recent financial statements, your credit reports and making a list of all the people you know that may be able to help you out and could act as a prospective guarantor. Once you have this in place, only then should you begin to arrange meetings with the individuals involved.

The benefits

By getting your parents to act as guarantor, you won’t have to pay a deposit at all. Instead, the equity on their property is used as security against your loan. Another advantage to this solution is the fact that you may also save on mortgage insurance expenses.

The risks involved

When considering this type of loan, it’s important to become aware of the risks involved, as if you’re unable to pay up, your parents will be left to front the bill. This could even mean them losing their property.

Building up equity of your own

Once you build up equity of your own, you can then remove the guarantor. However, until then, the risks remain.

GTA5, The Worlds Most Expensive Game

GTA5, The Worlds Most Expensive Game

Released in 2013, Rockstars GTA V is proud to have the title of “worlds most expensive to develop game” and when you go into specifics, it’s not surprising.

This AAA blockbuster has taken the world by storm and now, even 5 years after release is still being played by millions of users. Thanks to the power of the internet new renditions and missions such as heists and online play have given the title many fresh leases of life where other games in the past would have fallen short of this hurdle.

The detail of the world is also incredible, spanning over 5 times the size of the map of Red Dead Redemption you are immersed into some of the most well thought out and brilliant scenery ever to grace consoles and PCs alike.

The game is played from either a third-person or first-person perspective and its world is navigated on foot or by vehicle. Players control the three lead protagonists throughout single-player and switch between them both during and outside missions. The story is centred on the heist sequences, and many missions involve shooting and driving gameplay. A “wanted” system governs the aggression of law enforcement response to players who commit crimes. Grand Theft Auto Online, the online multiplayer mode, lets up to 30 players explore the open world and engage in cooperative or competitive game matches.

Development began soon after Grand Theft Auto IV’s release and was shared between many of Rockstar’s studios worldwide. The development team drew influence from many of their previous projects such as Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3, and designed the game around three lead protagonists to innovate on the core structure of its predecessors. Much of the development work constituted the open world’s creation, and several team members conducted field research around California to capture footage for the design team. The game’s soundtrack features an original score composed by a team of producers who collaborated over several years.

My story

Due to side effects from a mediation I took when I was a child I developed arthritis at an early age. I was rushed to hospital when I was 14 after my right knee swelled up like a balloon over a 4 hour period. I had a very aggressive form of arthritis that came on quickly, but luckily also died off quickly. Anyway, that was some time ago and now I have arthritis in my knees, wrists and ankles. When the pain is bad I receive very effective relief from a small dose of kratom powder. I try not to use more than a couple of grams of regular kratom powder for arthritis as and when I need it.

After more extensive research into kratom as a natural pain reliever, I was astounded by what I found. I had a lengthy conversation with a lady from Canada who suffered from menstrual pain, consisting of bad back, craps and even mood swings. She discovered kratom almost a year ago and now she recommends it to all her friends. “Its amazing, I take a little in the morning and feel great all day. It helps relax me, and does a great job of relieving my pain. Kratom also helps me with my mood swings”.

I recommend people to try kratom for head aches / migraine relief, back pain, stress relief, restless leg syndrome, and its great for overcoming the symptoms of the common cold. The list is extensive. Please, if you have used kratom for pain relief, please email the host of this site.
