Hubber Poll: Let`s "eat" some HubNuggets!

Here is HubFun again!

After last week HubNuggets contest which was a much bigger success than I could ever imagine, this time we have another outstanding group of 10 HubNugets to choose from. After reading all of them I am sure we will have an even bigger engagement from all Hubbers.

Once again while making this hub I had the valued help from the greatest team ever: Michelle aka Ripplemaker, Shirley Anderson and of course, Ryan Hupfer.

Lets get it rolling!

This week HubNuggets were chosen from a great selection of all the best as well as recent hubs from new Hubbers. And I can tell you this time it was not easy! Too many very good ones.

Make sure you read them all and then vote for the one you like the most. Remember to tell us which one you chose and the reasons why.

If you are one of the chosen Hubbers then you must go tell everyone you know to vote for your hub (everybody can vote - even non Hubbers).

Your involvement makes me very happy, thank you all :)

Hope you like this week HubNuggets, have fun!

Step #1: Check out this week selection of great HubNugget

After managing a gentleman's club I could write a book full of odd things that people don't really think about or even think existed. I always joked that my job would have been a sociologists dream because I literally sat and observed millions of different behaviours.

In case you haven't taken the time to stop and look around things have been changing in your world. The America that you are living in is no longer that of big investment bankers and Wall Street big winners.

I'm new here; in case you didn't know. To be quite honest when I first got here, I was a little intimidated, and actually I still sort of am. You see, whenever I start up on a new website, I know that I'm going in it as a newbie.

Bombay (Mumbai) apart from being the commercial hub of India has always been famous all over the world, for its glittering and shimmering night life; a city (of razzmatazz) which never sleeps!

It is amazing how little you know about some topics until they smack you alongside the head. A little over a month ago, both my husband and I would have been hard-pressed to point out the location of the aorta in our bodies, let alone describe an aneurysm.

Psychology suggests that YOU can control your luck! According to research, luck may depend more on attitude than chance. If you want to know what lucky people do to be so lucky, then read on, because you can do it too!

First and foremost - I am sorry you are reading this hub. I think if you are reading this you are in some trouble and want to know what is in store for you. No one can predict your future or how well your lawyer will perform (free ones usually don't).

I will give you ten good reasons: 1. If you are looking for new work or a promotion, being bilingual will give you a clear advantage...

Video game production is, in many ways, quite similar to film production. With computers gaining in speed, power and storage all the time, companies are producing games on a much larger scale and with huge teams of developers.

In this hub, we will discuss the development of these early Greek communities from prestate to states, or "poleis" to use the ancient Greek term (polis sg., poleis pl.). We will also see how the self-made basilees (pl. of basileus) of the earlier periods evolved into a hereditary aristocracy.

Are you a Nugget?

Voted! i won't tell which hub because the others might quit my fan club but it's about a public restroom fixture but it's really not i guess it's like a metaphor but more like an analogy but the humorous kind but serious! LOL

This was soooo hard!! There were 4 that I wanted to vote for because they written so excellently!

In the end, I went with The Dance Bars Were Shut Down in Bombay, because it drew my attention to a plight that I was unaware of in a way that was informative and compassionate.

surviveprison 7 years ago from New York

I certainly enjoyed "How To Survive Prison" - oh who am I kidding, as a man, I was intrigued by the exotic dancer story..... but I do fancy a good urinal story - so, yes, I voted for "My Online Urinal".

Maybe I should change the name of my hub to "How to Become Hot Sexy Beefcake in Prison in 5 Years or Less"?

All great posts though! Congrats to all!

Great seletion of hubs! I like your hubnuggets contests since it saves me the time of looking for these pages. I just come to yours and trust you got me some gems, and you did not let me down.
