Seriously. It seems like the most idiotic games have been appearing over the last few years. Either they are bug-ridden or they contain tons of empty plot devices that were obviously designed to fill up your game time. If you’ve played a game in the last five years, you’d understand completely what I’m talking about.
So, if you’ve been reading this blog (as our Dear Leader Kim Jong Poopykins has been commanding you to), you might remember I did a piece on graphene that touted its benefits. You did read that piece, riiiiiight? Of course you did, because if you didn’t, I know where you live.
YouTube is the realm of the internet everyone goes to for entertainment. If you can’t afford Netflix, and you don’t really feel like visiting The Pirate Bay, there’s always videos made by entrepreneurial folks that range from silly to extremely valuable and educational. But there’s one thing most people don’t realize that YouTube videos can be: creepy as shit.
There are various opinions about piracy, but one thing we can all agree upon is the fact that the best way to stop piracy is to offer something even better or employ methods for combating it that don’t involve putting people who click a “Download” link in prison. That, of course, implies that you’re not a sociopath bent on ruining the lives of people who aren’t hurting anyone physically. The good news is that some companies are adapting to piracy instead of beating their heads against a wall that inevitably grows larger as more people are added to the pool of pirates.
Have you seen that part in Team America where Kim Jong Il is threatened by the UN? No?
No, we’re not talking about America, the group of continents that form an entire friggin’ hemisphere. We’re talking about ‘Murica, the land of the free, the home of the brave, and a country that’s full of smartphones that can’t fit two SIM cards in them.
I f’ing love you. You know that. We’ve had a good run for many, many years. You’ve provided me with free services, and I’ve done jack s**t for you. I liked it that way. I think you liked it too. Heck, I even clicked on an occasional ad once in a while when I was interested, as “payment” for the almighty amazing piece of tech awesomeness you’ve become.
Earlier this week, I wrote an article at Make Tech Easier about how SSD optimization can really put more strain on your little device than is necessary. If you’re not aware of what I write on that site, you’re a horrible person. Just kidding…. Or not?
Everybody who reads this blog regularly knows that I have the tendency to make dumb-ass tests and resets on the server. That’s why I’m going to torment you with a post that has no other purpose than testing the function of my Facebook publishing function. Enjoy.
Update: It worked. I did not torment you in vain. Celebrate… NOW….
