SURVIVOR is one of those shows, especially as it is about to enter its 20th season this month with an all-star HEROES VS VILLAINS theme, that Web Watch loves watching – if only because the show somehow always figures out how to be fresh, exciting, and surprising season after season.
Jeff Probst has even given all future contestants one vital hint on how to survive Survivor, and it all comes down to studying game theory, which Web Watch will cover in a future post.
One thing that Jeff didn’t feel the need to mention is that one key part of being on Survivor is that at some point during the game, you’re going to be naked.
Sure, the CBS censors may pixelate your NO NO ZONE, or the contestants may decide to show off their newly-buffed bodies in an attempt to increase their Survivor-provided 15-minutes of fame — but after 20 seasons (and approximately 300+ contestants), there was bound to be a glut of Survivor contestant nudity available at some point.
A recent study of submitted tax returns (from 2007, since you asked – the most recent set of data available to researchers who study this type of thing) shows that IF YOU ARE MAKING OVER $32,878 A YEAR, then you are in the top 50% of income earners in the country.
Which is why Web Watch would like to point you to a recent posting Lauren made entitled READERS BY AUTHOR, a look at what proclaiming who your favorite author is says about you. And after reading the list, Web Watch can confidentally say that Lauren speaks the truth.
The most common password found online is typically 12345, although the ROCKYOU data had the most common password being 123456, with nearly 1 percent of the ROCKYOU users being that uncreative. Go figure – that extra digit made it that much harder to hack into the critical ROCKYOU website.
And there are all sorts of ways for you to celebrate National Pie Day, including the obvious – such as “bake a pie” or “bring a pie to work”, and the not-so-obvious “have a pie fight” or “pass along pie memories” (whatever that means).
Web Watch hasn’t had a NSFW entry in a while, so we thought we’d throw one in today just because we can.
Have you ever wondered about how much our body parts play into our senses (besides the obvious “smell” and “taste”, of course)? LOOK, TOUCH, and LISTEN are three parts of an art project called FLESHMAP done by Fernanda Viegas and Martin Wattenberg.
He always says that writing jokes isn’t easy. We keep telling him that he would have more free time if scientists would invent a robot that could write jokes.
He insisted that there was no way a machine could write something that was as funny as what a person could write. Web Watch tried not to point out how horrible some so-called sitcoms are, or how repetitive certain late-night talk show host monologues have become.
Web Watch was at a music video shoot many, many years ago. It consisted of standing around a concert stage in an empty arena for hours on end while the same song got played over and over for the artist to lip-sync. It really wasn’t as much fun as we were promised, and no pizza was provided. Through the magic of editing, the crowd shots in the finished video look much more packed than what was really there.
One thing Web Watch knows how to do is tell others what they are supposed to do to lose weight.
It’s quite simple – “eat less and exercise more.”
See how easy it is to say that? The hard part, as we all know, is actually following through with the advice that we freely give to others. Web Watch may not practice what we preach, but we’re really not the kind of people we would preach to anyway.
So let’s pretend that you’re already trying to eat a sensible breakfast, healthy lunch, and small portions at dinner. You’re exercising a little bit every day as best you can, but you haven’t really noticed any real differences yet.
