The cheapest baseball beer in the country


By web gangsta | Published:

What are your baseball game rituals?

Do you always have to grab a hot dog, cotton candy, peanuts?  Do you insist on wearing a rally cap, bringing a glove to the game in the hopes that you’ll catch a foul ball?

For some, it’s not a baseball game without a cold, frosty beer in their hands – delivered to your seat by an enterprising college student who knows the way to make a perfect pour into the tall plastic cup.

Texting while driving is dangerous. So is this…


By web gangsta | Published:

Do you know what the texting-while-driving laws are where you live?

What about in states that you don’t live in, but travel to frequently?

Right – so you may know what you can or can’t do in the car in your own home state, but since these rules are so random, it’s hard to know what you should be aware of when you’re just passing through.

Wearing high heels can save you money


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has told you about a friend of ours who cancelled a vacation in order to buy a pair of shoes.

For her, the shoe purchase was a much better use of that discretionary money than travel was.  And that’s okay – everyone has choices to make, and she was okay with this one.

But what if we were to tell you that this may have been a wise budgetary move, but not for the reasons you think?

The 10 Best Places in the World to Access the Internet


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch knows a guy who spends his life traveling around the world – not for work, but just for fun. Because he’s young, and he can do it.

Sure, he has a job, but his job didn’t allow him to travel. Didn’t require him to ever leave his office. So he decided to go on the road on his own, taking his office with him.

How Many People are in Space?


By web gangsta | Published:

You’ve always dreamt of being an astronaut, right?

And today, you actually can go up into space – albeit on a fancy modified airplane.  Or you can experience zero-G… either on a roller-coaster or again, on a fancy modified airplane.

So you’ve sat on your back deck with a beer in your hand and watched the International Space Station zoom by and you’ve got yourself to thinking…

Five Worst Places in the World to be a Woman


By web gangsta | Published:

With all the recent news about major gender-related crimes and intolerable acts against women in India and other countries, Web Watch thought it would be worthwhile to point out that this is not new news at all.

Women have been fighting against cultural bias for years – decades – longer… and this doesn’t, shouldn’t be the case in this day and age.

10 Tips on How to Write Good


By web gangsta | Published:

Writing well will get you through much of life.

If we could go back in time to take our middle school, high school, or even college classes again, we might be tempted to take more writing courses. Or at least pay attention a bit more in class.

The ability to write well is the cornerstone of communication, even when you’re looking at 140-character limitations on your latest tweet.  To compose the ideal tweet, knowing how to write is vital – or else you’re just going to look like any other crazy Twitter user.

What do Nickelback, John Mayer, and DMB all have in common?


By web gangsta | Published:

Everyone has a MOST PLAYED or FAVORITE iTunes playlist that you listen to on a regular basis. Heck, that’s what the music industry is all about — getting you to buy (and play) your favorites over and over again.

It doesn’t matter how you listen — local radio, Pandora, your iPod — as long as you listen.  Nobody wants to hear crap music.

Then again, what’s crap to you is music gold for someone else.  Not everyone loves opera singing or country music, but there are opera and country fans out there.

Study: Facebook reduces well-being and satisfaction with life


By web gangsta | Published:

How long have you been playing Candy Crush Saga?

Better question: have you been paying money to advance, or have you achieved as much as you have via free play?

Since Web Watch has told others about the joy (and frustration) that CANDY CRUSH can bring, we’ve been hearing stories from friends about them paying $1 after $1 in order to advance through.  We have texts cursing us for sucking joy out of their lives, as our friends have become addicted to moving from level to level with this BEJEWELED clone.

And all we can say is, we couldn’t be happier.

Why?  Because at least our friends are NO LONGER OBSESSED WITH FACEBOOK.

Amazon’s Funniest Product Reviews


By web gangsta | Published:

You’ve browsed through AMAZON.COM for hours on end before, right?

It’s just like going to TARGET, HOME DEPOT, or COSTCO sometimes, where you know you’re just going to run in for one item, and end up walking out with a shopping cart full of stuff you never knew you needed until you actually saw it on the shelf.

But there is one advantage that AMAZON has over a brick-and-mortar store, in that they have crowdsourced the product reviews.  Opening up the reviews to the public to REALLY tell you what the product is all about, and whether it works as designed, and more.
