    This is crap currently on my brain

    If you know much about any of these subjects, i'd love to read your comments

    I'm curious what kind of feedback Black Hat World will produce

    much love

    The End of Faith

    It's odd that the atheist author of "The End of Faith" says he thinks there may be some evidence for reincarnation and ESP. Alan Turing believed in ESP too.
    I wish I could find this citation: "R.S. Bobrow Paranormal Phenomena in the Medical Literature Sufficient Smoke to Warrant a Search for Fire," Medical Hypotheses 60 (2003): 864-68."

    Corporate Consolidation

    Why wont the Walmart Effect happen to the internet as well?
    In theory why would people need more than one website to buy things?
    Can't everything just be Amazon.com and eBay?

    Multi-monitor computers

    They rock. How did I ever live without three monitors?

    Godelian Logic

    I really wish I was smart enough to understand it.

    Quantum Mechanics

    What a very strange universe we live in

    The fact that this works, is the closest thing I've ever seen to a miracle in my life.

    This is literally the most amazing thing in the universe in my opinion.


    "Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory does not understand it." - Neils Bohr (1924)


    Geo-Arbitrage and "Exportable jobs"

    I just paid a Vietnamese guy 50 bucks for a custom word press theme job. It was fairly complicated work too. I'm thinking as soon as Asia and India start getting their people online, it's going to be hard for US companies to rationalize hiring programmers like me for 70k a year.

    Subreplacement fertility

    I'm a little bit sad that there won't be any hot Swedish and Italian girls around anymore.

    All the countries in BLUE are dying:

    But I had a vasectomy so and I hate children so...




    I don't believe in UFO's but Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and a former astronaut have all testified that they do. They did a pretty good job on this trailer:

    Buy Sperm

    Isn't it funny that you can buy frozen human sperm:

    Genetic Determinism

    I just finished Malcolm Gladwell's book Outliers in which he talks of a psychologist who studied the top 1% of high performing school children and predicted that they would grow up to be pillars of their communities. But in the end, they did about as well as if he were to have selected a random sampling of school students.

    And in another study identical twins raised in different families, one white bread and one trailer trash, do about as well in life regardless of their upbringing.

    Tell me baby

    I have two cousins who moved to LA to try to be stars. And they're not making it. I feel sorry for them. It's such a tough town. Does anyone know where I can get the full version of Tell Me Baby
    In this version, they cut off the intros:


    I really wish I could make money online and buy this guitar and move back to my shack in Thailand



    Though I lived above the Full Moon Party for 8 months I only had sex a couple dozen times and that makes me sad




    This 24 year old blonde girl made $8,000 dollars last month via Google Adsense.

    I made 2 dollars.

    I'm sad about that too.

    And She can't program
    She sucks at CSS
    She sucks at HTML
    She sucks at PPC
    Forget about MySql, Lamp, Javascript, C#, ASP, XML
    She horribly sucks at interface design
    She atrociously sucks at Photoshop
    And I read her ebook
    It was probably the best MMO book i've ever read. And I read them all.
    She was recommended by Grizzly, who holds a top 5 position for the term 'make money online'

    Here's her website (not an affiliate link)


    Below are some of the wisest words i've ever read about MMO (taken from her last chapter):

    "Sorry to burst your bubble here, but it is nearly impossible to "make money blogging".Although I make blogs, I am not a "blogger." For the record, I'm a "professional keyword researcher" and "backlink finder"; I have nothing to do with "blogging" anymore
    I make blogs (plural noun), but I do not blog (verb) for a living.
    I do not rely on my content to make me money; I use my content to satisfy the Google bot so that I can attract traffic that will click on ads or buy products. I am not trying to impress people with my writing skills
    Blog writers and blog readers do just that - they read and write. Most blog readers are just trying to kill time at work or find a good laugh. Most blog readers simply do not purchase things! That's how it is! Of course there are a few top bloggers who make a lot of money, but the majority does not. [most of the successful bloggers primarily have the blog to promote some kind of service or online business they have. It's not for the sole purpose of selling affiliate products or displaying ads.]
    Most people can't become professional athletes - and most people can't become professional bloggers. It's possible, yes, but highly unlikely
    You CANNOT have both passionate content and profitable ads. It doesn't work that way.
    Most bloggers are trying to push affiliate products and have Adsense plastered all over the pages. These bloggers think by putting good content, they will attract readers who will in turn click on stuff and reward them for their efforts. I used to think this way myself. I used to be a blogger...I will admit it.
    Think about it, though. Even if some readers occasionally click on an Adsense ad, the blogger will probably get ‘smart priced' from the lack of consistent clicks and/or because the person came from a social network (they weren't targeted traffic for the advertiser).
    Look at it from the reader's perspective. Your ads probably annoy them to death. They don't buy stuff or diligently click on ads because they weren't looking up anything to begin with. They probably "Stumbled Upon" your blog or clicked on the link from someone's link exchange and started reading. They could have come from anywhere. It's like trying to sell a Lamborghini to a person looking for a used Honda. They won't buy it.
    Users won't click on the ads or be interested in what you're selling. They'll read your genius blog post, take any freebies they can get, ignore the ads, and move on to read another blog.
    Forget being financially rewarded for your genius blog post.
    It won't happen.
    They might leave some nice comments, but comments won't make you any money.
    They might link to your post, but all that will do is send you even more bloggers who won't buy anything
    All that effort for nothing!
    And all that effort for only one blog! I can put up a hundred half-assed blogs in less than half the time and still make more money. Their strategy is all wrong, and the sooner you realize this, the better it will be for you.
    The typical blogger strategy might work - if you have millions of hits each week. It works for CNN. Do you have the backlink juice and overall credibility (PR) of CNN?
    After being miserable and feeling like a failure in the social blogging world, I found the cure to this demoralizing disease. It took me the longest time to get over the fact that making great content and making money online do not necessarily go together So much for that travel blog that I poured my heart and soul into! No one compensated me, and now I know why. Who is the Right Traffic for Our Blogs? We need someone who wants to be pitched to or who is desperately seeking something. Who are they? They are search engine traffic. Search engine searchers typed in something (probably on Google) that they are looking for and they certainly did not come online to be entertained or to socialize.
    Since we chose keywords that have at least 1000 searches per month, this gives us quite a few people to run it by. When we have a hundred or more of these blogs with several 1000+ per month keywords for each blog, the numbers add up - and so do the clicks. This is purely a numbers game. To top it all off, because they typed in a particular keyword in the search engine and you provided the Adsense advertiser with a quality lead, you will probably get top dollar for each click. Most of the clicks that I get currently (as of August 2009) are more than $2.00 per click."

    Everytime I watch Nanny 911 I thank Christ for the invention of the vasectomy:


    "According to an eight-year study of 218 couples, ninety percent of couples experienced a decrease in marital satisfaction once the first child was born."
