  1. I'm sorry to hear about your misfortune. We had real grilled burgers, indoor type grill obviously.
  2. Have you eaten at Mcdonalds lately? The new quarter pounder is tolerable and I'm sure most would say it's good. But the a single hamburger/cheeseburger from there is completely nasty even when it's made correctly. I'm a little bit spoiled by non fast food burgers and I'll be totally honest, if I want a burger, I'll either fire the grill up, or happily wait 20 minutes for somebody else to make one.
  3. The school lunch menu at my high school was pizza, french fries, and cheese burgers. All of which actually tasted better than McDonalds.
  4. Who knew that defending blackface could be so catastrophic to one's career?

    I saw some pictures of the van. Who would have thought that would have been the guy? I bet there's a life time supply of Alex Jone's brand of supplements in there.

    Story is developing and I don't have a really good link at this time, but it appears that somebody mailed out a bunch of bombs to political targets. I sincerely hope nobody is killed by this person(s).
  8. Hopefully they were smart enough to be doing that years ago.
  9. I've been screwing around with different techniques to get legit followers on Twitter without much success. Rand Fishkin's new project is Sparktoro which has a free Twitter follower "grader" and obviously it's no surprise that most people's followers are junk. Obviously the reason any marketer wants followers is to promote your own stuff but if your audience is bots/junk then that doesn't help you. I tried doing Followback manually and extremely selectively and that did work but it was extremely tedious. I wasn't going super aggressive but I was only building ~5 followers a day and it was a lot of work to find ~100 good accounts, follow them all, wait a few days, then unfollow the ones that did not followback. I found a method that was much faster but the quality was a little bit lower and it's actually a much better use of your time. Find ~100 influencers in your niche and follow them. They should have 10,000+ followers each and their account shouldn't be clearly automated. (See Jeff Bullas if you're not sure what an automated Twitter account looks like.) Start stalking your Twitter feed. As soon as any of these influencers post, immediately reply to them with an intelligent Tweet. Every time I do this, I seem to get 1-5 followers immediately, and I haven't been able to respond to anybody super huge on Twitter like Rand Fishkin yet. I realize that might sound silly and obvious, but I'm slowly digging my way through an ocean of advice regarding Twitter that is bad or does not work. I've built accounts up previously using a followback bot and the results are pretty bad, you do get followers but when you Tweet, your engagement is nonexistent. As a tip: posting content to your social account does not help you if you have no followers. The hashtag techniques on Twitter seem dead for the most part. You really need to build up a couple hundred followers before starting a campaign involving content to have any chance at that working. Edit: this isn't working as well now. It's very odd, I honestly think time of day has something to do with this.
  10. I saw it awhile back (a year?) and was under the impression that it was enterprise level stuff.
  11. Scrubs "Build Followers on Google+" off todo list. Honestly the network is a ghost town. https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/08/tech/google-plus-security/index.html
  12. You can just install the classic editor and disable Gutenberg, that's not the issue. The issue is that if you are using something like Divi, update to Gutenberg, then start updating your content, realize it's breaking divi, then switch back to the classic editor, every page you updated will be broken. The only solution I found when I tested it was to delete the pages and recreate them, so it's not like it breaks the site completely. If they do this correctly, it should prompt you on what editor you want to use when it updates. That way you can "no no no cat" it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4u9bfWy-BE Hopefully they have enough intelligence to do this correctly but I've got a hunch that every single designer and developer is going to be extremely busy starting Nov 20th... I would highly encourage people to test this ahead of time on a test site. Duplicator your site and export it. Setup Wamp. Setup your hosts file so points to your domain name (this will cause your computer to go to local host instead of trying to DNS the domain, so don't forget to undo that later.) https://support.rackspace.com/how-to/modify-your-hosts-file/ Install your site with duplicator to your local site, test stuff. If it's fine, cool, if not, figure out what you're going to do.
  13. Wordpress is pushing the Gutenberg editor live Nov 19th and it will probably break about 80% of the WordPress sites out there. Disable automatic updates now and make sure you test everything before you update to 5.0.
  14. It's like a gas station pumping sugar into your gas tank. If they can't figure out their priorities, that company and their plugin is dead and I would bet on it, seriously, dump it. There's other solutions that work just fine.
  15. You are but it looks fine in my opinion. I don't think that's problematic unless there's extra cities or states you don't care about where you created pages for no reason. A very minor problem I see here would be if you have a state where you only have one city page. That's kind of silly because that state page is not needed but technically, the silo structure says it should be there. The pros and cons get kind of weird in that case. Under normal circumstances, the city page will link to a state page, which links to the other cities in that state, and will help the other cities. If there's only one city, it's kind of a waste but it still links to the index page so it will help the other states and cities in those states. That's where you want the external links to point to ideally. To the pages you want to rank. Ideally, all pages on the site should have a clickable path to the pages you want to rank. So getting a link to any page on the site will help but unless it's the exact page(s) you want to rank, it's less direct. It's likely you have a link in the header (not the HTML header, the visual header inside the body tag) that does that already, almost guaranteed if this is a WP site.

    Facebook is at it again

    The main issue is that any little piece of information you put out there can be combined with other information to obtain even more information.
  17. So yeah... Okay... Crazy man robs bag of ginseng out of trailer where 5 men with guns shoot at targets a few yards away. Man ignites pool of napalm and detonates multiple bombs during gunfight to defend himself. Man steals back 200k of stolen ginseng from tailor and then burns it to the ground. WTF West Virginia... They need to send a fleet of FBI agents down there holy shit... And I thought the meth dealers were bad... /shakes head Nope, the hillbillies picking ginseng roots out of the ground are 10 times as bad. I'm glad the show only ran 16 episodes and was canceled before a camera man got killed.
  18. Plus all events in the past and in the future. Let me distill this down a little. There are just certain things that I doubt you would want to know. Even something simple like, the day you die, or how you die... If you have kids, how or when they die... Do you really want to know? Honestly probably not right? Here's a fun one: whether or not there was one single thing that if you had done that differently, would have led to you becoming a multimillionaire, and what that was. It's too late now so how does knowing that you screwed that up help you?
  19. "Facebook says attack exposed info of 50 million users" https://money.cnn.com/2018/09/28/technology/facebook-breach-50-million/index.html The EU is going to have a shit fit.
  20. I will add this: If you could snap your fingers and know everything, would you do it? And I mean, everything... You would know everything, but there would be nothing left to learn, to experience, or to discover. After learning everything, what would you do next? You could do virtually anything, but what would the point be? You would already know what the outcome would be. Wouldn't you just end up doing nothing? There are certain things in life, where I just accept that, it's actually better not to know.
  21. The cite a book to sound credible tactic is pretty lame. I'm sure there's a book that explains any talking point I want. I will summarize my opinion on this matter: You can not use science to prove or disprove the existence of a god(s) since they are believed to exist outside of the realm of which science can evaluate and I agree that effort would be a "frivolous exercise in intellectual contempt." The further down the rabbit hole one goes, the more unanswerable questions there are. I will go to the extreme. The question: who or what created the universe and did that entity/entities effect humanity and if so, how so? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I consider myself to be an intelligent person and I don't have an answer and I think anyone who pretends to, is doing just that, pretending... I don't personally have any issue with these questions co-existing in science as long as all parties involved can agree on the fact that no one can know everything. Once this fact becomes accepted, depending on the perspective, one may look down upon certain people with certain beliefs and the problem with that is, they don't actually know either. As far as the Bill Maher video: I can not find the polling data he is referencing, I'm not suggesting that it does not exist, but I will point out that Russ Douthat is a writer and a journalist. Just like the book citation tactic, a good journalist can take almost any piece of information and interpret that data any way they want in their writings. That doesn't mean that I think what he is suggesting doesn't make sense. Again, since all intelligent people should be able to acknowledge that there will always be questions about existence that can not be answered, they should agree that people are perfectly fine to believe whatever they like. I will point out that I appreciate what Russ Douthat is doing and I respect him for doing it. I wish more people would take what they've learned from their religion and use that information in the context of current society. I would also add a very valid argument; What about perception? Maybe from god's point of view, it did only take 6 days to create the world. Most religions teach quite a bit of history along with things that I think are universally accepted to be positive things, like morals and values. But, I have encountered people, multiple times, that are not only quoting something from their religion out of context (which again, anybody can do that to contort the meaning of something into anything they like), and are making no attempt to put that citation into the context of modern society. That's just as bad as someone who will not accept the reality that science can't prove everything. Pointing to a book and saying "I'm right and you're wrong because it says this right here" is just as silly as saying "well since science can't prove that it exists, it doesn't." In both cases, those people are not being realistic.
  22. Man, nobody told me that I screwed the title of this topic up... w/e Fixed.
  23. I'll bet 50$ that he dies before he gets out. Cruel and weird I know, but I honestly think the guy is going to kill himself.
