I have ads on my facebook wall in my news feed and at the top of each facebook page Its not like the ones on the right where ads usually are It's on MY WALL How do I get rid of it? This probably means you've inadvertently installed a browser plugin (and maybe other malware) on your PC. One that I know of is Game Play Labs. If you'll go the add-ons or plugins or extensions (depending on your browser) and look for plugins you didn't add (or Game Play Labs, itself) and remove them, this should go away. You should download Malwarebytes at malwarebytes.org and scan your PC with it, as well as ensure that you have the latest version of a good Anti-Virus program and run a full scan with it, also.

If someone blocks you on Facebook from the news feed what happens? Nothing happens to you - the only person that will be affected is the person that hid you from their wall. They do not block you entirely when they do this, they only choose not to see all of your wall posts about your Mafia, Farm, etc. You can still instant message them, you can still comment on their photos and status updates. The only thing that changes is that they will no longer see your status updates, new photos, etc, on THEIR wall.
How can you tell if a facebook profile is fake? You can tell if the facebook profile is fake just by the appearance of the profile.

The related link below has some great tips that you can use to help you effectively sort out the fake profiles from the real ones. I hope this helps.

What determines football left tackle or right tackle jersey number? nothing really determines it, Lineman just have higher numbers than some, like QBs and RBs. O lineman usually have #50-79, and D Lineman have 90- or sometimes 69-79.But no there is no specific detail to each lineman's number P.S. WR's have the only numbers higher than O-Lineman, and lower than most D-Lineman WRs have (80/ 10-19)
How can i be braver in the tackle for football eg slide tackle against bigger apponents? The main thing to remember is that just because they are bigger than you doesn't mean that you can't slide them. As long as you get the ball, tackle them as hard as you can and make them feel it!
