Okay, this one is pretty funny in hindsight. One time, I had the brilliant idea to get a turkey off-season because it was cheap and would last for a few days. We bring it home, defrost it, and my dad sets to work cooking it.
And then disaster strikes. Also, keep in mind that we got the turkey off-season.
The turkey wasn’t completely thawed out on the inside, despite the fact we were able to get the little bag out from the inside and our measly 9 x 12 glass pan is quickly filling with liquid. To prevent total oven carnage, my mom and I volunteered to run to Walmart and get a turkey baster so we can get the liquid out safely. With our desperate mission set, my mom and I raced out the door.
I was really surprised when I saw this in my news feed the other day, but apparently you can get Amazon Prime at a discount if you’re on government assistance in the United States. According to Reuters, this is another move Amazon is making to directly compete with Walmart. Rather than the $10.99 per month most people would pay, those on government assistance would pay $5.99 a month instead, which is pretty nice.
But it got me thinking: how would it benefit people who are barely getting by?
I’ve never had Amazon Prime, so I decided to take a look at what its benefits are. I already knew about a few, like expedited shipping and the option to get deliveries by drone, but beyond that, I had no idea what Prime even offered. So I decided to take a look and see what the hype is all about.
The Prophet ﷺ said, “Ramadan has come to you. (It is) a month of blessing, in which Allah the Almighty covers you with blessings, for He sends down mercy, decreases sins, and answers prayers… In it, Allah looks at your competition (in good deeds), and boasts about you to His angels. So show Allah goodness from yourselves.”
The last 10 days of Ramadan are crucial in Islam, particularly because of Laylat al Qadr. Allah the Almighty releases people from Hell every day in the month of Ramadan, especially in the last 10 days of Ramadan and during Laylat al Qadr.
Believe it or not, I’ve been gaming since I was five and I haven’t stopped, even after all this time. I’ve been a bit out of the loop as far as games in recent years since the Wii U didn’t appeal to me much and I’d been low on finances anyway. Even so, Nintendo’s Switch has me wanting to see what’s been going on in recent years.
