Way Back WhensDay: Swatch Watches

A blast from the past
By Kevin Hunsperger
@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

In middle school I had bad hair, bad glasses, and a bad sense of fashion.  My one saving grace (at least in my mind) was my collection of Swatch Watches.  They came at time that I had outgrown my Mickey Mouse and Snoopy watches and offered something stylish and fun at the same time.  Bright colors, cool designs.  They were the embodiment of the 80's.

I had three Swatches back in the day.  While the faces stayed the same on them, you could pretty easily swap out the bands on them.  This helped in making a new fashion statement at a lower price.  It seemed like back then everyone had at least one Swatch Watch.  It was truly a timeless time piece.

Guard 1
Along with the watch you could add some protection to the fashion.  There were two different kinds of guards.  One was a rubbery piece that went down the middle of the watch face. It attached at either end of the band.  It was a bit thicker and more durable than a rubber band, but  I don't know how much protection this piece added.  They came in multiple colors, so the guards were very stylish.

Guard 2
The other guard fit around the face of the watch.  It clicked around it and was a bit more practical.  Those guards didn't obstruct the view of the watch the way the rubber one did.  I'm trying to remember, but I think it was possible to add both guards to the watch for the ultimate form of protection and style.

I know Swatch is still around, but I don't know if the campy designs of the 80's are still for sale.  I wish I still had my collection from my teen years, as it's always fun to look back on those relics of the past.

  16. 가능성을 처리하기 위해 단지 1 달러 만 돌릴 수 있습니다. 따라서 논리는 단지 위험한 베팅에서 훨씬 적은 달러를 지불해야하고 훨씬 더 나은 스테이크에 더 많은 돈을 지불해야한다고 말합니다. 이것은 적어도 하나에 대한 일반적인 인식처럼 보일 수 있지만 실제로는 자주 무시됩니다.

    이제 다음 질문은 : 축구 직원과 얼마나 많은 돈을 계산할 수 있는가? 지금까지 가장 일반적인 의미는 모든 범위에서 항상 동일한 수량을 사용하는 것입니다. 비록 이것이 오래 지속될 수는 있지만, 단기 실행 중에는 고가의 축구 전략에서 일련의 패자가 발생할 수 있습니다. 4 명 또는 5 명의 패자가 연속적으로 1의 대출자를 고갈시킬 수 있습니다. 그래서,

    그러나 많은 사람들이 조언하는 또 하나의 전략은 켈리 기준으로 알려져 있습니다. 토토 사이트 검증하는 것은 그럼에도 불구하고, 켈리는 취득의 기회를 이해하는 하나의 요구합니다. 그런 다음 입찰시 가격을 기회로 변환하여 축구 추측 크기를 해결합니다. 그런 다음 그의 베팅이 성공할 가능성을 근사해야합니다. 하나의 기회와의 비용 확률의 차이는 건설적인 것이어야합니다. 그것이 파괴적이라면, 단지 하나의 축구 추측을 버리고 다음 비디오 게임으로 넘어 가야합니다. 그런 다음 베팅 크기는 이러한 종류의 확률 변화를 적용하여 계산됩니다. 더 큰 구별은 더 큰 투자 결정을 제안하고 그 반대도 마찬가지입니다.

    이제 사람들이 생각할 수 있듯이, 일반인은 그의 축구 예측이 수익성을 가질 가능성을 근사 할 수 없었습니다. 따라서 이러한 종류의 방법은 그에게 최소한의 도움이됩니다. 실제로, 수학자 및 업계 전문가들은 이런 종류의 공식에 대해 열망하고 그것을 부정확하게 이해하지 않습니다. 그럼에도 불구하고 실제로 적용하기에는 실망 스럽습니다.

  17. Improve your volleyball game by working on your contact skills. One of the best ways, surprisingly, is by playing the game foosball. Superior hand-eye coordination is required to beat opponents at foosball. These skills will not only help your Foosball game, but will also improve your volleyball game as well.

    Boost up the density of all your workouts to help you lose weight faster. You will lose more weight if you pack your exercises into a shorter time-frame. Make your exercises "denser" by shortening breaks in between intervals or remove breaks altogether between your sets. You will see an increase in the amount of weight you lose.

    Trust your body when it tells you it's time to rest. Lots of coaches recommend resting less often or between less sets. Try to listen to what your body says even more than trainers. Do not ignore your body when it tells you that it needs a break. Take one. Otherwise, you may be risking an injury.

    Make sure to look at the bright side of things when it comes to your physical fitness. Also, keep your eyes open for new things you can do to improve your level of fitness. Using this advice, you can reach or boost your fitness levels.
