The economic ‘experts’ who stopped making sense Because most people like to believe that universe is under control.

Why? We have surely not forgiven the sinners. Rather, in the confusion of economic collapse, and as the economists did themselves, we have lost trust in our common sense and are seeking refuge in apparent certainty. There is a deep-seated human instinct to seek out oracles, and in a world that is less religious than it once was, in an internet age characterised by a relentless blizzard of information, noise and data, we have become more reliant than ever before on “experts”: anyone with qualifications or distinctions which make them worthy of attention.

Help Wanted? Not Yet in the Service Sector An understatement

The nonmanufacturing sector comprises 88% of the economy, and it follows that most of the nation’s jobs are in services ranging from construction to finance to pet care.

But guess what, gang? There’s a new religion in these holy wars. And it’s Google. All hail our new overlords..

See, veteran tech columnists know one thing very well indeed: If you write anything positive about an Apple product or negative about a Microsoft product, you get buried by hate mail and personal attacks. The only worse result is if you say something negative about an Apple product or positive about a Microsoft product, in which case you get exposed to the true ugliness of the human spirit (and sometimes, in fact, physical threats).

How to Use Escorts: IV

January 7, 2010 55 comments

In a previous post on this subject, I had talked about using online resources to optimize your experience with escorts. I will answer the other half of the question today: agency or independent contractor?

Before I say anything more, remember this:

If you are a newbie, your best experience will probably with a well-researched escort from an established, but not too expensive agency.

Now there are some caveats about using agencies:

1. Never use an agency that boasts of an elite client base. They are just lazy, snobby ripoffs.
2. Never use agencies that require you to pay in advance.
3. Stop patronizing any agency that sides with a gal you had to send back. Trust me, that happens.
4. Anything above 300$/hr and without MSOG is not worth it, no exceptions!

If you perform enough background research and use common sense, you will have a very pleasurable experience with an agency escort. It also helps that many agencies have lots of new faces, and the owners appreciate good repeat customers.

The quality of independent contractors can vary greatly, however as long as you perform a skeptical review check and take common sense precautions- you will be fine. Indeed the true gems in the escort business are often independent contractors.

As many of you know, escorts can be either incalls or outcalls. While each type has its pros and cons, which I discuss in a future article- outcalls are often the safer option. Also note that established agencies do not send any man/ driver along with your outcall to your door, and that is one of the sure signs of a scam or shakedown. The usual pattern involves somebody or a cab to drop her off, a quick phone call that she has reached, and one after the hour (or more) is over when someone or a cab to pick her up. That is it! Anything more than that is a bad sign, and feel free to bailout of such a scenario.

Any man who accompanies escorts to your door, hangs around in your house, property, floor of hotel is a sign of a scam or amateurs. At most, the guy can sit in the lobby/ bar of the hotel. Also be very suspicious of more than one guy accompanying the escort.

I have more suggestions for things to watch out for when using incalls, in my next post in this series. After that I will talk about massage parlours etc..

And one more thing:

If an escort is significantly different from her online description (official or reviews), send her away. You should not have to pay 200-300$ for an inferior lay, that is what committed men do.. Every wonder why the same word is used for a man in a relationship and one in a mental asylum?
