When the president goes out to eat, who pays for the food? by Anonymous

Answer by Anonymous:

I have a funny story most people don’t know, its about Presidents Obamas visit to our restaurant Estela in NYC.

Michelle and President Obama came for Dinner, while the secret service politely placed themselves in the kitchen and asked multiple questions about the meal and our night.

Come bill time, President Obama placed his credit card on the bill and our server when to process the payment. Declined. Awkward. What to do?

I should also add our server was nervous enough to actually spill hot tea on the President during his meal. (He was a great sport about the situation I might add)

Upon the server returning, She politely said something to the notion “Mr President, your card has been declined”. Michelle and President Obama had a good laugh with the Server and Michelle reached into her purse and provided her credit card for payment.

Before leaving the restaurant, the President told our server “I wont tell anyone you spilled tea on me, if you don’t tell anyone my card was declined”. Everyone laughed and took a group photo outside our restaurant together. It was a great night for everyone, it was fun and an honor.

Since that night, that server and all the employees have told everyone about the declined card and the spilled hot tea around a million times. Even the President himself mention the dinner and his declined card on a short interview once.

So yea, the President pays even when his card is declined. 🙂

How does freeCodeCamp compare to coding bootcamps like Flatiron, Bloc, and Thinkful? How does FreeCodeCamp plan to compete with them?

How does freeCodeCamp compare to coding bootcamps like Flatiron, Bloc, and Thinkful? How does FreeCodeCam… by @ossia

Answer by Quincy Larson:

If you’re asking how freeCodeCamp competes with coding bootcamps, then the answer is we don’t compete with coding bootcamps.

freeCodeCamp isn’t a coding bootcamp – it’s an open source community that helps people learn to code so they can get developer jobs.

We don’t see coding bootcamps as our competitors. We see them as additional resources that people can use to learn to code.

A lot of people use both freeCodeCamp and a coding bootcamp. In fact, a lot of coding bootcamps use parts of freeCodeCamp’s curriculum as part of their own curriculum. (To be clear, our curriculum is open source, and they don’t pay us to use it – but we’re thrilled that it can help their students.)

Coding bootcamps – like other traditional vocational education programs – provide in-person teachers, and the extrinsic motivation that comes with their strict timelines. They can also help people with job placement. These things are beyond the scope of freeCodeCamp’s mission.

Many people don’t need those extra services that coding bootcamps provide, and can just work through freeCodeCamp’s curriculum, build a portfolio, then go out and get a job. So far, more than 4,000 people have done just that.

But for the people who do want an in-person experience – and have enough time and money – the right coding bootcamp can be a good investment.

Which of Trump’s three wives is the hottest?

Which of Trump's three wives is the hottest? by Shern Ren Tee

Answer by Shern Ren Tee:

Here are some very important dates. Pay attention.

Ivana Marie Trump was born on February 20, 1949, 67 years ago.

Marla Ann Maples was born on October 27, 1963, 53 years ago.

Melania Trump was born on April 26, 1970, 46 years ago.

So of the three of them, Melania is probably the hottest. Why – and why probably? Because the science[1]shows that body temperature drops as you age, by about half a degree C if you compare people older than 60 to those younger. So Melania, being biologically the youngest, should have the edge.

However, that difference is quite small relative to the normal variability in body temperature just between different humans. So I'm afraid the only way to find out for sure is by using some thermometers, very shameless PIs, and (in one case) extensive wrangling with the Secret Service.

Wait, you meant which one was more attractive? Don’t sexually objectify complete strangers ya perv.

Is there anyone who still supports Arvind Kejriwal? by @rohitnig

Answer by Rohit Nigam:

These photos are from Delhi

are not from any rally.

These photos are from an inauguration of sewer lines in Sangam Vihar, Delhi

People who still need sewer lines in their area, are not on Social Media. But they do exist. They do need good governance. And they are getting it from the Delhi government.


This was about Delhi, check out this small nukkad sabha from Punjab

So yeah. I guess a few people still support AAP and Arvind Kejriwal

What can I do to improve myself every day?

What can I do to improve myself every day? by Gourav Namta

Answer by Gourav Namta:

Eat the frog.

That is the first thing you should do when you wake up in the morning.

Okay! So you’re a vegan. No issues. You could eat the frog too.

Mark Twain once said “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.”

The frog is that one thing on your to-do list that you have no motivation to do. You absolutely hate it, but you have to get it done. Also, it’s something you planned to do last night when you went to your bed.

Eating the frog means to just do it, otherwise the frog will eat you meaning that you’ll end up procrastinating it the whole day. Once that one task is done, the rest of the day will be an easier ride and you will get both momentum and a sense of accomplishment at the beginning of your day.

How do you identify your frog ?

Its simple. Divide your work in following categories-

Things you don’t want to do, but actually need to do.
Things you want to do and actually need to do.
Things you want to do, but actually don’t need to do.
Things you don’t want to do, and actually don’t need to do.

The frog is the Things you don’t want to do, but actually need to do.

The main reason we procrastinate is the lack of motivation and interest to do it. We always feel there’s time for it and end up either missing the deadline or doing it in a shitty way.

Eat a frog everyday. It would be actually difficult in the beginning. But as you do it, you will start feeling better and procrastinate less in life. Lets start from tomorrow. 🙂

Who is the most down-to-earth celebrity?

Who is the most down-to-earth celebrity? by @Rahul361raj

Answer by Rahul Raj:

It’s Google CEO Mr. Sundar Pichai. Recently, he visited his alma mater IIT Kharagpur and I got a precious chance to see him in person. He is really very down to earth. All the time, he behaved like just a normal person. Not for a single second, he made anyone feel like he is the CEO of the technology and innovation giant Google.

He went to his hall where he used to live during his college days and met with the mess staffs and workers. He greeted them and was happy to meet them.

When mess workers presented him bouquet, Sundar folded his hands as a token of respect.

And there wasn’t any ego or sense of being superior in his attitude.

Sundar Pichai sitting on a cot during an interaction with the women of Gokulpur village near Kharagpur. Google is giving training to the women under its 'Internet Sathi' programme.

He played cricket with children at Gokulpur village.

He is being offered a cap with his name on it by a woman during an interaction with the women of Gokulpur village.

And he interacted with the women sitting amongst them just like another normal person.

He went to see his room where he used to live during his college days.

B-308 it was!

And interacted with student with a sense of personal touch.

TVF’s founder Arunabh Kumar presented him the Hall T Shirt and look, how much happy he is!

Look at him. So calm and serene.

He himself checked Google's free Wi-Fi services at Kharagpur railway station.

Moreover, when some student asked him, “How can I replace you at Google?”
He calmly and cheerfully answered, “ I would tell him ‘Be careful about what you wish for’, but I would be happy to discuss it over a cup of tea”.

He is surely the most down to earth celebrity I have ever met!
