Or Kill Me / Re: Sermon Against the Salesmen
« on: December 02, 2010, 02:52:35 am »
I take pride in having a purchasing history that, though it may be tracked, it cannot be marketed to.  I got a few targetted coupon ads sent to my name and they grossly misinterpreted the kinds of things that I buy, probably because there isn't a category in their system that takes things like the number of steps removed the product is from being an actual food.  It doesn't matter much now, splitting my shopping between the locally owned and still cheap supermarket, the butcher shop, and the discount produce store.

It's like when I'm on Netflix, rating movies 5 stars from directors like Kubrick alongside Paul Verhoeven.  It makes no sense to them and they give me wonky as hell suggestions on things to watch.  I browse through their failure of a recommended title page and smirk as I see their algorithm sweat under the weight of my awful, awful taste.  Or like when facebook's targetted ads tell me I should try a McRib when I haven't eaten any sort of fast food in about three years.

If you bastards are playing with someone on the same computer or in the same room, hide your shit.  Graaah!

Substitute "complain" with "voice my concerns regarding"?

Yeah, that'd work.  Striking "to complain" and you'd have "writing to you about" which would be alright as well.

Once installed, rightclicking an image and blocking it will result in you never ever seeing it again. Useful for ads, too!

Sweet, can I get one of these for people!?

I think you should remove "complain" in the intro line.  It's a red flag word that might honestly stop the reading right there.

ETA:  Sorry, I should have also mentioned I think it's very well done.  Not to fondle your balls or anything LMNO, but considering it was you that wrote it, that part pretty much goes without saying.

I'm wondering how effective it might be to frame the letter in the sense of it not only being a 4th Amendment issue but also a political opportunity to lead the charge against diminishing rights.  It's pretty clear these people don't care about the people or anything, so would an appeal to a career help?

I think being a Spider could have been a lot of fun if we weren't completely fucked by the second round.   :sad:

I was blown away when I tried this:

Their IPA was a bit too hoppy for me, but this was kind of an epiphany.

I cannot say it enough on PD:  Stone's Ruination is my favorite ultra-IPA around, and their Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout is one of the best beers I have ever had, period.  Too fucking bad they don't make it anymore.

16.  It's dildoes all the way down.

There was a Black Friday news report on Thanksgiving night, talking to a few people waiting in lines at different stores.  One guy said it was his tradition; everyone else had their turkey and their mashed potatoes, he had his camping out for Black Friday.  He said sometimes he doesn't even buy a good deal, maybe just a CD or something.

Something needs to be put in place to compensate for natural selection being broken and allowing people like this to go on existing.

I believe I will make a gallon of Caribou and get Mooseblasted with whatever buddies are around.

Incidentally:

Caribou- a fortified wine drink attributed to the Quebecois.  Consisting of:

1 gallon strong red wine (burgundy or similar)
1 fifth (750 ml) Canadian whiskey
Maple syrup

Mix, (exact portions currently under research), and let settle for a week to a month. 

 :aaa:

Have I mentioned how much I loathe you bastards?  I'm one round from finishing alive and you're putting me on a bus.  I'm not sure who I hope Remi attacks more this round, Phox for arbitrarily starting the votes against me or Fracture for pulling the "that's exactly what a Spider would say."

Either way, I'm taking a short trip to Milwaukee or some shit whereas the subsumed will spend the rest of their existence drooling on themselves while watching Dancing with the Stars.

 :argh!:

Dude, if you're going to win ANYWAY, why are you bitching?

Because you're the spider. Or just a whiner.

You're right, my bad, when I said:

I prefer to stay alive.

What I really meant was:

I prefer to stay alive.

I hope that clears up any confusion.
