It's probably just so that Yahoo will be able to better authenticate you in case there's a problem. Gmail and Hotmail also does the same thing sometimes.

Facebook does the same thing, and apparently it's because they do not want people to have more than 1 account. Could it be that Yahoo is trying to discourage people from having multiple emails?

Gmail give you the option to skip through, while in yahoo recently, if you don't give your number, you can't even log in.

Which is really annoying

Well yahoo people are pretty ignorant when it comes to UX. Still stuck in the 90' mindset of "it works for me" I'm afraid.

The phone number deal is merely so they can use your phone as a make shift authenticator for your account. Most companies don't have any interest in the whole multiple account deal; in recent years it's also not uncommon to have a "delete account" option. The only ones who have some problem with multiple accounts are companies who have actual problems in the context of their business if you have more then one (social networks for example) and of course the blissfully tech-illitarate smart asses. Well you know how it goes "Oh look they got a upper limit on password length and characters. We need to have that too!!"

And honestly, like heck i'm gonna let my clone email having any of my real personal information. Basically have to give up on them

So what happened recently that yahoo decided to step up this kind of measure? Or was it simply because my email was hacked hence they have to find a way to reset pw and stuffs?
That's odd. Which country are these other Yahoo email addresses based from (i.e. were they created on the Australian version of the Yahoo website)? I definitely don't recall anything about it being compulsory to have a phone number tied to a Yahoo account, nor prohibitions on having more than one account (aside from the "keep your information truthful and up-to-date or we may suspend or terminate your account" clause). If these accounts were indeed hacked into, that's probably the reason why.

Attaching a phone number to an online account, particularly one with personal information, is a very good idea- making it easier for you to reset/recover passwords and the ability to use your phone as an account authenticator (as felix points out). Facebook, PayPal, Google and other companies offer two-factor authentication, a handy way of making your accounts more secure (Yahoo apparently also offers this option, but it's in beta).

Now, if you're looking to replace those "clone email" accounts...
Yahoo, as well as Outlook.com (Hotmail), and iCloud Mail, have the ability to create what are known as email aliases (Gmail has something similar, but not quite as powerful)- basically a secondary email account allowing you to cloak your primary email address. Email aliases can be easily managed from your primary email address. You can then set specific rules regarding these aliases, such as delivering emails from the alias email address to a specific folder, or even turn off/delete said alias email address once they are no longer needed.

Microsoft's definition:
Quote:
Create an email alias
Why create an alias? Some people like to use multiple addresses for different things. For example, you might use one address for a job search and a different one for online shopping. That way, messages sent to those addresses can be kept in a separate folder.

Reminds me that none of the emails I use, even the official one for job resumes, have my full and real name.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Is there ANY purpose to injecting Nitrogen Chloride (tear gas) into your bloodstream with a needle?

I'm in my room and I'm overhearing a conversation by another tenant in this house who I know is a pothead (but only, that I know of). His gf was helping his give him a needle of that stuff NaCl3 and she was talking out-loud. Seriously, wtf? I hope they're just reading some fake label or they can't read.

At any case, he got an eviction notice a month ago and one more week until the police force him out of his room for ignoring it. That guy broke just about every tenancy rule there is.

NaCl3? Surely you mean NCl3 for Nitrogen Chloride? NaCl3 is Sodium Chloride 3 (which by the way isn't chemically possible...) I'm certain you've read this, but the the lazy. Seems like it'll cause irritation in body... http://www.lookchem.com/Nitrogen-chloride/

Here you go:

I couldn't find #19 (it's a pretty low res pic and I am unfamiliar with the model) but the other 3 I know:


#58 - Nokia N92
#59 - Nokia N93
#60 - Nokia N93i

I actually lusted quite a bit after the N93i when it was originally announced. I still have a thing for flip-phones actually.

I've heard of having additional ribs ("cervical ribs"), and I'm pretty sure we were taught that some people have only 11. The "normal" rib count is 12, so while it's unusual, it seems to be a normal variation. As far as I know it isn't associated with any diseases or other disorders. Of course, if you're experiencing pain, discomfort, or other problems, bring them to the attention of your physician.

Question : Do people go to the beach in winter? What is the reason for them to do so?

I've gone in the late-fall/early winter(in late november) or late winter(feb-march), numerous times, if that counts.

I'd say the main reasons would be to:
1. Avoid the awful summer heat, in areas like Florida the fall-winter weather is generally mild, and rarely actually that cold, so it's comfortable weather for the beach.
2. Avoid the massive amount of spring and summer tourist.
3. Avoid the highly unpredictable summer rains, the weather is also much more predictable and less stormy in general, so much lower chance of being rained out.
4. Avoid sunburn that comes with the spring-summer heat, sunburn hurts enough said and you can easily get it in some places even with sunscreen during the summer here D:.

The beaches more cold areas of the world probably aren't so enjoyable at that time of year comparatively .

Definitely a yes! Not that I do (No winter in the Philippines) but I often see people do so on TV. I note British do...

I got three reasons in mind (based on what I watched)

1. They feel like...(doing the unsual) for fun to be specific.
2. Contest or gathering that is... like some game...
3. Health benefits... swimming in cold water burns twice the calories than the usual swimming since your body burns calories for heat and energy at the same time...
