Proof that music can make you drunk


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s nothing better on a cool weekend evening than firing up some tunes and sitting out on the deck with some good friends and having a drink or two.

There’s a reason that people take great pride in their music atmosphere — it’s because a party without music is a bit of a downer.  Music really does help people have a good time.

It’s North vs South in personality wars. (The West? Not so much)


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch was having a conversation the other day about what it was like to conduct business – sales, really – in various parts of the country.

One of our friends chimed in that there is a distinct difference between business styles when he visits New York and other northern locales compared to when he travels to the south.  In the south things are more relaxed, personal, and a bit slower paced. People tend to care about people first, then they’ll get down to business.

Visits out to the West?  Those, he said, were full of feel-good, granola folks.

How much pee does an elephant hold?


By web gangsta | Published:

Different animals can pee different amounts.

College-aged fraternity guys have been known to “pee like a race horse” after (or during) some beer events at the house.

Let’s think about that phrase for a moment — does it mean you’re peeing as much as a racehorse would?  Are you peeing in the same manner that a horse does?  Or are you merely peeing while running around a track?

Language – it’s so complicated.

How to opt-out of targeted personalized web banner ads


By web gangsta | Published:

So you’re surfing the web without any Ad Block plugin installed in your browser, because you know that Internet content isn’t free.

How to tell who died in a house before you buy it


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch was talking with a real estate agent the other day about new home construction, and we thought we’d ask, “has anyone every inquired whether the new home was built on an ancient Indian burial ground?”.

They looked at us blankly, and said “yes”.  It’s a quite common question for them, it seems, whether it be new home construction or even trying to find out a bit more about existing home sales.

Do you need a Dating Investigator?


By web gangsta | Published:

Dating used to be so much easier before than it is today.

Before, all you had to do was use your gut instinct on whether that guy or gal was going to be the right one for you, or if you felt that they had any excess baggage dragging them along.
