Check the pill size
Most over-the-counter medications will be in tablet form. The most common size for an otc medication is 200 or 500 mg. This means you should look at both the 200 milligram (mg) and 500 milligrams (g) tablets.
Some drugs are made as single doses instead of coming in tablets or capsules. The dosages of these medications can be anywhere from 2 to 100+milligrams.
You may also see liquids that come in a bottle labeled “OTC” or contain the word “OTC.” These initials refer to Over the Counter. Many OTC medicines are pills. However, some OTC medications are liquid instead of solid pills.
Check the texture
If you try to pull the plug, do so with care. There’s a reason the word “plastic” has three letters – it is hard, almost like plastic.
That said, not every metal object was created equal. Some materials are very reminiscent of plastic, even down to having a slightly damp feel to them.
An example is the classic Legos toy. Although they look real enough, those pieces really ought to be labeled as fake, for one simple fact: their surface doesn’t require much pressure to deform under normal use.
I call these types of objects Plastic-y or PY -es. They can sometimes be considered authentic specimens, but this determination depends upon the application of some basic rules.
For instance, synthetic stones such as glass mosaics are often claimed by collectors well known for their ability to deform under manual stress. Though many people consider this skill into the realm of possibility, I would classify that as an extreme rarity.
My recommendation here is to stop trying to detect fakery; abide by what I call the Rule of One. For everything there needs to be at least 1 true version before you believe in its authenticity.
Investing time tracking down more than one copy of a work is also never a bad idea. Two is the minimum required for entry into the realm of possibilities, although a single original is still quite valuable.
Check the color
The color of obsidian is unique to each material. While none can be produced exactly, you can test whether your black diamond is real or an imitation by looking through its veins for consistent coloring.
If it has many blue colors in the vein structure, then this indicates that the stone is natural. However, even if the stone is graphited (faked), there still may be traces of earth minerals in it which give it a similar appearance to genuine obsidian.
The best way to verify that a check is legitimate is by visiting the official site for the certified-gold checking account. Make sure the address listed online matches what you see before deciding to accept the check.
Also, ensure that the amount listed on the check falls within a reasonable range for the transaction.
Finally, depending on where you are sending it, the locations might not offer these services due to geographic restrictions. Therefore, ask questions to make sure they will take it.
Check the shape
There are several characteristics about a glass that tell you whether it was made in the US or China, like its thickness and consistency.
A brick is thicker and stronger than plate glass from overseas. A thin piece of chrome with bubbles inside can be cut into, but not out of, brick.
Plate glass from Europe and Asia is thinner and more transparent than brick glass. Both types of glasses are also shiny-the United States makes most of this type of window glass.
The way the light shines through differs between the two countries as well. Brick windows make for an interesting contrast against plain wall surfaces.
They create their own nuances and bring life to a room. Whereas Europeans prefer smooth walls without much texture, people in North America tend towards nongratifying backgrounds.
Brick architecture has been popular for hundreds of years, dating back to Roman times. Even though they’re not actually bricks, similar construction materials such as dried clay (called tiles) and stone masonry (called drywall) have retained ties to the Romans.
Modern brick architecture follows traditional styles while adding new technologies and products. It all depends on what flavor you want!
There will be only one side to the wall where the floor meets the ground. This is called the face. The remainder of the wall is known as the body. If there is no face, the wall is considered bricklaid.
Check the feeling
Even though there’s a lot of drama that goes into keeping an alter ego, you can usually tell when something is going on.
There are certain signs to look for.
If someone seems more confident talking in a high-status person way than usual, that could be code for “I am acting like I don’t care but really I feel very important.”
Or they might try to push back their reactions (like anger or sadness) to appear calm.
It is also common to see some separation between this persona and the original self. The split becomes even clearer if the other person starts calling them by a new name or referring to them as different people.
This is called dissociative identity disorder and it is considered a mental illness.
Check the style
Here are a few pointers that can help you determine whether or not someone is creating an online persona
If the person has only a few posts, they probably don’t have much content to share.
Posting quantity is one factor, but originality of content is more important. It’s helpful if the topic is related to your passions, but it’s not any type of guarantee that you won’t be fake.
Quality and uniqueness are two qualities that will put people at ease, making them feel comfortable enough to talk with you. They want to trust you and believe in what you say, and being genuine is a major part of gaining people’s trusts.
People can tell when others aren’t honest and try hard to encourage honesty, so it’s crucial to appear as though you are real and committed to doing things.
Being honest also helps you connect with other people and make their experiences more enjoyable, which is a valuable asset to have as a leader. Leaders who are able to convey confidence in themselves can lead resources better than those who present a confident face but lack inner strength.
Check the labeling
There is one little thing that can tell you if something is real or fake about an obsidian watch’s packaging — its label.
If it comes with no information at all, then this is probably not a legit watch. Their are hundreds of online shops that use identical labels to promote their watches.
However, things aren’t always what they seem. Heists now offer ‘secret codes’ which allow anyone to purchase an expensive watch. These secret codes were usually reserved for high-end dealers before heists began.
Heists also often claim to sell authentic watches from various companies, but these watches have been illegally acquired by the seller (most likely through black market sales).
The buyer buys this knowing it was stolen property who both knows how much time it will be until they get caught buying a stolen item. It becomes very clear that using an online store only helps your case against him.
Check the quality
Quality of videos, blogs, and other forms of content is something that can be verified easily online.
There are many video sharing sites for facebook, twitter, and youtube, among others.
For instances, you can check out how my dog was able to save someone’s life by licking them after they had lunch.
That same friend who shared the experience told me that her family also confirmed that what I said about their quality happened to them at dinner last night. They thought it was funny and amazing that what I said in this post happened to them exactly one year ago.
By having conversations and confirming reports with people, you can verify information as true or false.
Check the company
Nowadays it is very hard to tell if an email is fake. With all of the automation that goes into sending messages today, people have started to use technology to send emails they know you will open.
It is also easier to trace back things published online and find out where they came from. This means there are ways to identify who sent each individual email.
If someone sent spam or made other kinds of threats, go ahead and call your government agency about it. But don’t expect them to help you solve the issue if you didn’t take timely action to stop it.
In fact, many governments around the world do not consider cybercrime a legitimate area of law enforcement. Without proper authority in place, malicious hackers can get away with threatening others and committing fraud without much consequence.
Keep track of when someone tries to hack your account. If you receive warnings (which we don’t recommend), then be sure to react quickly enough to cancel the warning order.
We promise these tracking tools won’t replace taking legal action once a criminal has breached your security. But monitoring their activity helps us build effective laws for sharing information across global borders.
