I know some secrets. Wanna hear?

Here is a list couple of websites that I have found over time that are either full of information that is useful or they are just entertaining.

#1) Cracked.com – Cracked… Favorite website to visit when I’m bored. It’s got everything you’ve never even thought of before. Seriously. 5 Things You Won’t Believe Aren’t In the BibleThe 5 Most Inspiring Things Ever Accomplished (While Drunk), and The 5 Most Epic One Man Rampages In the History Of War are only three post titles from the homepage that I checked out for this article. Don’t even try and tell me those have crossed your mind before. They haven’t, trust me, but now you want to click on those links and read WTF they are. The untold secrets of Cracked.com behold you just beyond this link. And you can’t turn down America’s Only Humor & Video Site, since 1958. Cracked #2) Lifehacker.com – Lifehacker is a site that is very popular among internet fiends and those alike but not among people that don’t have a clue how to use the internet besides checking their Facebook, Email, or checking their dating site inbox. This is one of the few sites that I believe refers to almost everyone out there whether it be a chef, a bargain hunter, a techie dude, or do-it-yourselfers (my favorite diy site out there somewhere). It’s got everything. Make a Simple Hallway Bench out of IKEA Shelves and Cushions, Better Facebook Makes the New Facebook Font Readable, Adds Tons of Other Tweaks, and Add Baking Soda to Make Acidic Coffee Stomach Friendly. Cruise this site once in a while when you have got a craving to get off your arse and do something. Or make a search if you are looking for something in particular. If you can’t find it here, check the other site I mentioned before.Lifehacker

I will post some more useful websites soon. New post coming this weekend.

Info Session #1 – Google Cheat Sheet

Okay so this one is a pretty neat one if you want to find exactly want you are looking for on google. I have had people come up to me and get me to perform the search for them. The reason I can find it and others can’t is because I have this and you don’t but I am now releasing this glorious triumph to everyone who visits this blog. I will try to post new information daily. Here it is.

Google Cheat Sheet

Google Cheat Sheet 2


Life is not read-only.

So, I was Stumbling today and came across a site that really caught my attention. It wasn’t the most aesthetically pleasing website. It was really plain to say the least but it got its message across. It’s called free-culture.cc. I haven’t had a chance to read through the different sections but I did have a good look over the Free Content section and watched the videos on there. It’s all about the Creative Commons licence. A licence which gives you the ability to decide the regulations on your products instead of having them controlled by governments and other bull shit people/organizations. Check it out. FREE-CULTURE.CC.

OMG! LOOK AT THOSE DRAGONS!

Zach Galifianakis. He’s very unique in the IDGAF kind of way. I appreciate it. I WOULD NOT TOLERATE SUCH DISRESPECT ON MY TV SHOW!! Just kidding… but I’d punch him if he smoked weed at my table. Maybe. It’s Mr. Hangover dude. We’d be the three bestfriends that anyone could ever have…


Wow… but why?

Oh my...

“Convicted forger A. Schiller was serving his time in Sing
Sing prison in the late 1800s when guards found him dead in
his cell. On his body they found seven regular straight pins
whose heads measured the typical 47/1000ths of an inch or
1.17 millimeters in diameter. Under 500 magnification it was
found that the tiny etchings seen on the heads of the pins
were the words to The Lord’s Prayer, which is 65 words and
254 letters long. Of the seven pins, six were silver and one
was gold – the gold pin’s prayer was flawless and a true
masterpiece. Schiller had spent the last 25 years of his life
creating the pins, using a tool too small to be seen by the
naked eye. It is estimated that it took 1,863 sepatate carving
strokes to make it. Schiller went blind because of his
artwork.”

Okay now… was there an actual purpose to him doing this and ruining his eyesight? And who the hell decided to magnify the pinhead 500x? This person must have got a new microscope and is looking at everything 500x its normal size.


Bricked Storage?

Okay guys. In New York, people have planted USB drives randomly in walls and curbs. You may be a bit confused by this but it is actually quite interesting. It’s for random p2p file sharing. Someone uploads a file by plugging in their laptops and downloads another file. It’s kind of a game in a way. This is a great idea from my point of view because you’ll never know what you’ll get which makes it exciting. Until the tragedy of virus’s become frequent of these random USB drives. Personally, if I stumbled across one of these while wandering with my MacBook, I would definitely plug in! Curiosity killed the cat, but I’m not a cat so whatever.

Endtroduction?

End-troduction? Well, it simply means that this post is my first but it will always be at the end of my blog on the last page, but it’s also the introduction. It begins with my name, Ethan. I’m computer savvy, love to listen to electronic music (preferably house), and I’m very intrigued by the latest gadgets on the market and soon to be on the market. I have a 3 months-old brindle Pit Bull Terrier who happens to be my best friend and he is sleeping on my lap at this moment. His name is Misfit. I’ll post a picture of him here in the next post. I’m an 18 year young guy that attends Building Futures in Calgary, Canada.  My blog is going to be mostly updated daily or every other day with interesting stuff I find around the web or see in my day to day life.
