When (technically, “if”) the zombie apocalypse occurs, a safe mode of transportation will be vital for getting your loved ones to safety. Luckily, Mercedes-Benz is already all over that problem you’ll face during the end of the world. Meet the Mercedes Hunter X6, a custom-built rugged off-roading vehicle that can handle almost anything the elements (or zombies) will dish out. Not only that, but you will look extremely cool while you protect the family and friends you’ll make during the apocalypse.
You could argue that finding a safe spot and staying there is a better idea during the apocalypse, but hitting a moving target is hard. It’s even harder for the walking corpses that will be attacking during the zombie breakout. Obviously, spending your nest egg on a Mercedes-Benz Hunter now is a wonderful idea. It’s better than investing, because you’ll be investing in your future. (Feel free to use that line when your spouse is angrily asking why you just spent thousands of dollars on a zombie protection vehicle.) If you love your friends, share this article with them. They need to know about this awesome survival vehicle.

With help from this Quora thread.
Just call ahead and let them know. Then use it as a fridge for breakfast items and healthy snacks.
Buy a Styrofoam cooler for a just a few bucks and fill it up with ice from the hotel’s ice machine. Then use it to store everything from Greek yogurt, to string cheese, to baby carrots and hummus.
Find instructions on how to make eggs and instant oatmeal using a coffeemaker here.
Like olive oil, salad dressing, or lemon juice. (Also: Skip the $14 airport salad and pack your own for the plane.)
Water coolers, standard in pretty much any hotel gym, will at least be cold, free, and filtered — aka better than the tap water in your room, or shelling out a few bucks for another plastic bottle at the gift shop.
This one may seem obvious, but if it’s an option, do it! You’re much more likely to make healthy choices if they’re within reach. (Or at least, within walking distance.)
Plan ahead! Make one stop at the grocery store, and make it count. The less time you spend aimlessly wandering the produce section, the more time you can spend actually enjoying the rest of your trip.
Just ask the front desk — they’re usually happy to accommodate for hotel guests. If that doesn’t work, you can find most kitchen utensils at local dollar stores.
Both Crock Pots and rice cookers come in smaller sizes. All you need for each is a wall outlet, and you can easily make things like brown rice or shredded chicken breasts with minimal effort. (Just remember to size any large recipes down accordingly.)
Plastic cutlery, salt and pepper packets, honey packets, napkins, fresh fruit from the continental breakfast — you never know when these might come in handy.
Stuff you can easily stash in a ziplock bag — like granola bars, trail mix, or cereal. (Also, here are several great ideas for DIY healthy travel snacks that you don’t need to refrigerate.)
If your room doesn’t have one, the lobby or continental breakfast area probably does. You can make a bunch of healthy options in a microwave — like frozen veggies (microwaving them with a bit of water = steaming them) or frozen pre-cooked shrimp. Just make sure you’re using a microwave-safe container. (A ceramic mug works in a pinch.)

These 10 places listed below are some of the most well guarded and most secure locations in the world. From Area 51 to Fort Knox, these places are very tightly locked down to the public and guarded around the clock. In fact, rumor has it only Nicolas Cage can break into any of these places.
I love how there’s banks, government locations, top secret military areas…and a car park. They sure take their car parks seriously in the UK. Source: imgur Share this list of heavily guarded places with your friends below.

Although the marketing team behind Nutella has been peddling the chocolatey, hazelnut-packed spread as being part of a well-balanced breakfast, we all have to remember that these folks are, in fact, part of a marketing team.
And that means they’ve been lying through their chocolate-covered teeth. As it turns out, there are a few ingredients in Nutella that contributed to a lawsuit against its maker, Ferrero. They’re far from healthy.
And no, before you ask, it’s not vanilla. In the case of artificial vanilla flavoring, this chemical cocktail is used to fragrance the so-called “extract.” Vanillin is classified as an excitotoxin, and consumption of such toxins has been linked to neurological disorders, migraines, endocrine disorders, seizures, and more.
It also contains MSG, and if you eat Chinese takeout, you know that this stuff triggers the reward center in your brain that makes you want to stuff your face. That’s not good when what you’re eating contains an excitotoxin.
Researchers found that animals that consumed soy lecithin regularly (albeit in fairly high amounts) displayed hypoactivity, poor reflexes, and decreased response to pain medications. Again, this is after much higher exposure to the additive than most of us would get through eating Nutella, but it’s good to monitor intake since it is among the most popular food additives in the world. You’re probably getting hit with this stuff from all sides, folks.
By nature, vegetable oils are modified because their production typically requires the use of heavy chemical additives and extreme heat processing. In Nutella, modified palm oil ups the fat factor in a way that isn’t exactly healthy. In peanut butter, which is presumably Nutella’s arch nemesis here in the States, the fat content is pretty high but those fats are naturally occurring.
Basically, they are the “good fats” your doctor always yammers on about. That’s not the case for the oil in Nutella, which is highly processed.
