Marketers: How to reach Gen-Y consumers


By web gangsta | Published:

Millennials, Generation Y.

Whatever you call them, we’re still talking about people who were born roughly from 1982 – 2004.

If you had asked your grandparents when they were growing up if they thought this would be possible, they’d tell you were out of your mind, McFly. Continue reading IT’S TRUE: OLD PEOPLE HATE CELL PHONES

The secret to losing weight is who you eat with, not what you eat


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody is always on some sort of diet, and all diets basically end up being the same thing:

Eat less than your body needs for fuel.

So if you eat a lot, you need to exercise more.  If you don’t exercise a lot, then you should eat less.  And the types of foods you eat should be considered relatively “healthy” compared to cookies, cake, and ice cream.

Remember, kids – “delicious” doesn’t always equate to “good for you”.

Does the Creepy Dating Rule really work?


By web gangsta | Published:

We’ve all heard about the CREEPY DATING RULE, where you’re not supposed to date anyone younger than half your age + 7, right?

So if you’re 30 years old, you can’t date anyone younger than 22 years old.  And flipping that around – if you’re 30, you shouldn’t date anyone older than 46 years old.

22 years old through 46 years old.  That sounds like a pretty reasonable dating age range, don’t you think?
