    Was it something I said?

    Christmas was ruined when I wouldn't join my family because I was too busy hitting refresh on my laptop. You people owe me one Christmas. I'd like that in the form of a wind-boarding trip with Sir Richard Branson at his island please.

    It's more or less like the 75 emails I get from Amazon every week asking me to leave reviews for stuff I ordered.

    It's not something businesses set up. It's just Google trying to get more activity. The more people they get leaving Google reviews the fewer people are leaving Yelp reviews. Ultimately, they want to put Yelp out of business, and I hope they succeed.

    A tad more on this. The Earth "wants" to be a certain way. The atmospheric pressure and density, the distance from the Sun, the rotation of the planet, the amount of water on the surface, the volcanic activity, all act to make the surface and atmosphere suitable for life. And in every instance when that stasis has been radically altered...from having the land all over the planet virtually on fire (when the dinosaurs went extinct) to at least one instance of a prolonged period where the entire planet was covered with a mile thick layer of ice.....our planet has eventually gone back to roughly what we see today. And through it all, some life has survived. So do I think in a million years the planet will be supporting complex life? probably. Will we be among them? No idea.

    I've just been informed by my contact on The Whattys Committee that there are nine (9) Oscar winners and 5 nominees who have made the transition to TV in order to try and get their hands on the most prestigious of awards handed out by the entertainment industry. Nominations are about to be announced so stay tuned. Your humble reporter will be posting them as each category is announced. Winners will be announced as per usual on January 26. Once again the Spartan Marketing Academy (SMA) forum has secured worldwide exclusive rights to the ceremony by outbidding all of the other global media outlets. The actual amount paid is confidential, however it is rumoured to be "several tens of billions of dollars". You humble reporter contacted SMA to clarify the matter and spoke to Grand Poobah Mike Friedman. Mr Friedman would not divulge the actual amount invested, however he did shed some light on the rationale behind the decision to invest the huge amount involved. "Look,' said Mr Friedman, "Every year The Whattys Awards brings in over 320 billion unique visitors to SMA. This generates ad revenue of several trillion dollars. You'd be mad not to make an investment like that. Even arch boneheads like Dan Riffle would have made the same decision. It's a no brainer for someone as intelligent, wise and drop dead handsome such as myself." Indeed. We now cross live as the first nominees are about to be announced.

    Yes. The chemistry of the atmosphere is the same as before, so it would eventually go back to homeostasis. Neil deGrasse Tyson gave me hope when he said that if all the carbon on the planet escaped into the atmosphere, we still wouldn't have another Venus, with 800 degree temperatures. There are undoubtedly computer simulation models that are pretty accurate. I just don't know what they are.

    I can't say I love the new layout. Seemed fine on mobile, but on desktop it feels less inviting for some reason to me. I'm mostly curious what impact it is going to have on ads.

    RIP Neil Peart

    One of my musical heroes, Neil Peart, drummer and lyricist for Canadian prog rockers Rush passed away on Tuesday from brain cancer. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/neil-peart-rush-obituary-936221/ Former Police drummer Stewart Copeland had this to say about Neil: Neil in action on the Letterman show in 2011: And with fellow band members Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson in 1979: RIP Neil.

    RIP Neil Peart

    wow , I'm shocked.Just found out a couple of hours ago. One of my major influences in taking up the drums back in the late 70s when I was 10 yrs old.. He was one of a kind. Him and Bonham were it for me. And a really, really sweetheart of a man from what I always saw of him. RIP Sir Neil

    Google just asked me for a review?

    Thanks DWolfe I suppose I should make myself a little clearer. The first part of my post, I had looked up that business on my PC, and the review request came on my phone, right? Thing is I NEVER left the property. They sent this simply because I had searched this business. The review asked "what did you like about X business?" and "did you buy anything?" I was never there! The other part, was all stuff that has happened, randomly, in the past. Now, I do know that businesses can put a 'beacon' of sorts outside their business. I think this started with the Pokeman Go thingy. ???? NO idea. And to answer your question, no, I am not signed up for a local guide.. LOL.. seriously, I never leave this property! Unless Google wants reports on what it's like out at my mailbox, I'm no good to them.

    Google just asked me for a review?

    Did you sign up as a local guide with google ? They maybe tracking you that way or through your maps and where you parked your car. Seen that when going to a local fast food chain in a strip mall. Google is always asking to review another place on the property not the Burger joint. You can correct the location but it is usually a pain in the A** Some sources out there claim that is how google is making their Ai more accurate. Also supposedly they are trying to rate if directions are very good or bad ( they give multiple choices ). This is to help with their self driving cars. Hth's

    Hypothetical Question

    I moved off planet several years ago. From my location on Mars (a beautiful cream colored world) I look through my telescope at Earth and see a blue/green planet. I have heard from you, part of the 3% who sees the sky still as blue.

    Hypothetical Question

    Let's be clear. In your "hypothetical", you are not the one seeing the sky as blue. And you are not seeing it as green. You are seeing it as blue, and insisting that it used to be green.

    I know you didn't actually forget that the boycott only applied to the Americastanian team. I also know you didn't actually forget that despite that boycott the World Fluffing Olympics continued with teams from everywhere else. As a member (pun intended) of the Australian team I competed, and I was once again adjudged the best. Idiot.

    Google disallowing ads

    Yep. If they get verified they should be able to run ads again. You can call Google to make sure. Their AdWords support team is usually fairly helpful.

    Google disallowing ads

    I think it was actually a good move by Google because of all the scam sites out there. They did the same thing in the past to locksmiths. If I am not mistaken, there is a way for businesses to get qualified to run ads. It's not just the big guys. And the change has nothing to do with HP, Apple, etc. trying to get rid of the little guys. Google made the decision, and the last thing they want to do is help Apple. The reason companies like Best Buy can still run ads is because they are easily verified by Google. As for refunding the customer, why in the hell would they do that? If an ad was not approved, there is nothing to refund. If ads were run in the past, they got their money's worth.

    9 Oscar winners and 5 nominees

    Once again, The Whattys are as illegitimate as its perpetrator. No awards program that isn't simply the figment of an unbalanced mind would exclude The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (even if he goes back and edits his posts to include the show...).

    I suppose that you should feel flattered that anyone from those countries would want to launch a DDos attack on your site? I suppose it's Shanes theories and conspiracies and my Mandela thread. They don't want people to know the truth. 😉 Plus of course, Claude's even wilder science claims.

    On a point of ordah, natchrlly i gotta question the nature of inniness here. In my experience, "too much of a gentleman" don't always fit all the way down less'n I make with real hi octane bendin' — an' before you summon immodest images into view here, I talkin' 'bout foldin' stuff in half, securin' with duct tape, an' tryin' to offset the pain with an enthoosiastic demeanor. Same as sushi. See cos mosta that raw fish is flapped out double or triple, sealed up in all kindsa weirdly exotic skinny stuff, an' whenevah you ordah anythin' gets your tongue screamin' out like crazy, the guy spinnin' the nibblebles smiles an' says, YOU WANT MORE? (For hoomanitarian reasons, I jus' wanna say I ain't evah bent nowan's dick in half. My strategy here is to position myself slightly further away than usual without givin' off unintimate vibes.)
