Who eats more meat, China or the US? (You’ll be surprised by the answer)


By web gangsta | Published:

People in China are stereotypically believed to live longer, healthier lives – primarily based on their dietary habits. And as stereotypes go, that’s really not a bad judgement call to make on anyone’s part. Who wouldn’t want to be naturally considered healthier than those around you, solely based on your heritage or where you currently live?

Well, perhaps there’s something more at steak (HA!) than what we think is happening, diet-wise.

Social Media is just like Chocolate and French Fries


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s an old adage about how french fries at the bottom of the McDonald’s bag always taste better than the french fries in the container.

Maybe that’s why FIVE GUYS loads up that fry bag with extra fries, because they know that the fries in the bag taste better than the fries in the cup.

It’s like BONUS FRIES! Continue reading SOCIAL MEDIA IS JUST LIKE CHOCOLATE AND FRENCH FRIES

By web gangsta | Published:

Are you habitually early for appointments, or are you the type of person who is always showing up 10 minutes late?

Differences between American Parenting and the rest of the world


By web gangsta | Published:

Kids today are often considered too coddled when compared to how older generations were raised.

Everything from “participation medals” to “no score soccer games” to “teachers not allowed to mark papers incorrect” because it might hurt someone’s feelings are all a bunch of hooey for parents who had to endure the trials and tribulations of growing up themselves.

Whether it’s government interference or parents’ desire to truly protect their children to the extent of possibly going too far doing so, today’s parents have many things to worry about when it comes to raising their children.

Worst, Overused Corporate Buzzwords


By web gangsta | Published:

We all have played BUZZWORD BINGO in our office meetings, conferences, and presentations.

Sometimes those corporate phrases are appropriate. Other times, it’s just a talking head trying to sound more important than they really are.  Everyone knows they have a job to do (one would think), so we don’t need the demotivating words and phrases that oft-repeated without any real substance behind them.
