Ok, THIS Is Disgusting!

Just when you think you’ve heard it all, something like this comes along and makes you realize that people really are dumber than you can possibly imagine.

For me the difficult question is who is dumber? The people who think making coffee should include passing the beans through the digestive tract of an elephant or the people who are willing to fork over a premium price to drink the shit? (pun intended).

I mean seriously, just how far are we expected to go?

Oh, and by the way, just in case you think this story is a crock of shit, here’s a video about “Black Ivory” coffee from The Wall Street Journal

Pet Spoilers

No, this is not about some kind of “spoilers” in the sense of something that could potentially ruin your enjoyment of a movie, books or some other kind of thing with an ending that you don’t already know.

This is about people that go out of their way to spoil their pets.

I don’t know why it is but there’s a boatload of people out there that spoil their pets beyond any form of reason. They’ll do anything and everything from putting their pets in their will to taking them to the dog or cat equivalent of a hair salon to spend disgustng amounts of money having them groomed when a simple shearing of excess hair is what’s really needed. Trust me, the dog or cat doesn’t give the first little bit about how it looks in the eyes of anyone. Owners who think otherwise are clearly insane.

Then there’s the ones that imagine that doggie or kitty has some kind of a lumbar problem and go to extremem lengths to accomodate this usually imaginary illness and get them memory foam pet beds to sleep on.

I realize that there are actually times when such things could be needed because there are times (albeit rare as hen’s teeth) that an animal will actually have such a problem but seriously, animals having problems like that are extremely rare. They have the sense to not lift stuff they shouldn’t be lifting. THAT is a human failing.

Facebook Excrement – Relationship Falsehood

This is the first post in a series that I’m going to call “Facebook Excrement” where I’ll be taking to task various and sundry falsehoods and stupidities that I encounter on Facebook. These are things that the people posting them actually believe are true in spite of the fact that many of them don’t even make the first little bit of sense.

One of the ways that these little balls of excrement are passed on is in the form of pictures, usually with some cutesy graphic, covered with text.

In one such waste of bits I saw the following statement:

“If you aren’t happy being single you will never be happy in a relationship. get your own life and love it first, then share it. Love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.

This statement is completely false.

It is every bit possible to be happy in a relationship when you are unhappy being single. The author of this nonsense apparently failed to consider he possibility that people might just not like being single. They might not be happy with the idea that they’re essentially alone in the world and that being in a relationship would be the single most obvious cure for that problem.

The part about getting one’s own life and loving it is also nonsense.

Everybody has their own life. Even if that life is one that is lived alone because they are single.

Are they saying that I have to learn to love a situation that I despise before I am to be permitted the opportunity to change that situation?

If so, all I can say is “Bullshit!”

I will instead do the best I can to change the situation to one that is more to my liking. I have no intention to nor would I ever expect anyone else to learn to love a situation that is so totally unacceptable.

Things like this make me wish that stupidity was physically painful to the person being stupid. Perhaps then the rest of us wouldn’t be nearly drowning in a flood of stupidities.

17 Stupid Things To Do At Wal-Mart

We all know that WalMart is famous for people doing strange and stupid things. What many don’t know is that doing stupid things at WalMart is rapidly becoming a national passtime.

I personally do not recommend doing stupid things, especially in public places but if you absolutely have to (or your just really THAT bored), here’s a list of 17 suggestions to get you started.

1. Take a shopping cart and fill it with stuff then leave it in the middle of an isle. Repeat until there are two or three abandoned carts in every isle.

2. Set all the alarm clocks to go off at ten minute intervals all day.

3. Sample all of the air fresheners, spraying them all in the same area to make an “interesting smell”.

4. Repeat number 3 with perfumes.

5. Have a sword fight with rolls of wrapping paper.

6. Set all of the radios to a polka station and then turn them all off with the volume at max.

7. Walk up to complete strangers and say, “Hi! I haven’t seen you in forever!” etc. Just to see if they will play along to avoid embarrassment.

8. Move a “Caution: Wet Floor” sign to a carpeted area.

9. Follow someone through the store, always staying about five feet away. Continue to do this until they leave.

10. Try to put a candy bar on layaway

11. Ask other customers if they have any Grey Poupon.

12. Randomly rearrange how products are shelved.

13. Put the ketchup in the meat case next to the hot dogs.

14. Try on bras over top of your clothes.

15. Put a “Valet Parking” sign in front of the store.

16. Rearrange the CDs in electronics.

17. Leave a trail of orange juice on the floor leading to the restrooms

Take Your ‘Sub4sub’ And Shove It

Lately I’ve been getting more and more PM’s on all of my main youtube channels that are trying to get me to use various ‘sub4sub’ websites to gain subscribers.

First, they’re not even individual messages. Invariably I scroll down to see the part of the message that says who it’s sent to and it has been sent to 10 or 20 people at a time. a clear indication that it’s spam.

Second, ‘Sub4sub’ is an idiotic scam. It is promoted by people that have the mistaken identity that merely having lots of subscribers is what you need on youtube.

This is incorrect.

While having more subscribers is good, it is worthless if those subscribers do not actually watch your videos. What good is it to have 100,000 subscribers if only a few hundred bother to actually watch any of your videos?

Answer: None.

I would much rather have 2,000 loyal subscribers if most of them were actually watching my videos.

subscribers are important, don’t get me wrong. however actual video views is much more important than the number of subscribers.

Therefore if you plan to send me an invitation to join some sub4sub group, take that invitation and shove it up your arse . . . sideways.
