Question by Doc: Is this real? I got it in the mail?
I checked my mailbox when I got home and found a yellow postcard from “Sedona Pines” and Carnival saying that my family was selected to go on a cruise. I wanna see if it’s real before I call to complain to them about how fake they are. Here’s what it says:

“We are anxious to confirm your status as a major gift recipient. The ******** family of *******, AZ has been selected to receive a seven (7) night cruise for two (2) adults, including all meals, on-board activities and entertainment.

There are ten ports of departure including Los Angeles, CA, Galveston, TX and more. Retail Value up to $ 2,898.00. All that is required is that you attend a 90-120 minute presentation showcasing our beautiful resort and property. Call immediately. This offer expires 21 days from receipt.”

Here’s the fine print:

Q&A: Do The Great Lakes Have Currents or Does The Water Just Kind of Sit There and Move Only A Little?

Question by orangewaffle88: Do The Great Lakes Have Currents or Does The Water Just Kind of Sit There and Move Only A Little?
I’m doing a school project where I’m building a “resort” on a giant boat and putting it in Lake Michigan. Impossible? Yea, pretty much. But it’s better than doing my project on a Hawaiian resort like every other (uncreative) person in my class. But do the Great Lakes have actual currents? And if so, which way do they go? Thanks for your help!
If there are currents, any chance you can tell me which direction the ones in Lake Michigan go?
