By web gangsta | Published:

How many diet sodas do you drink in a day?

Two? Three? Twelve?

There’s a direct correlation between your health and your horoscope sign


By web gangsta | Published:

“What’s your sign?”, he asks you at the bar.

Sure, it’s the cheesiest line you’ve heard all night, but considering you’re about to dive into a plate of nachos, it was not the cheesiest thing you encountered yet.

It’s odd that we’ve placed so much emphasis on the zodiac or horoscope sign we were born under, that there can be that much relationship between some made up calendar and the month that our parents just happened to have had a bit too much to drink.

Most engagement rings cost less than $999


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s been said that a wedding ring is supposed to cost two months salary.

We all know that’s a load of baloney.  It’s all marketing.

Seriously – all that “two months salary” thing is going to do is force kids to get married while they’re young and unemployed — that’s how you can keep that two months salary thing as cheap as possible.

How to win Buzzword Bingo


By web gangsta | Published:

You’ve been in those boring business meetings, where the entire office gathers because they’re told to… only to do everything you can to keep from falling asleep because the people making the presentation have absolutely no idea how to make a presentation, let alone make one that’s interesting.

Let’s face it, not everyone is skilled at talking in front of other people.  And even fewer are able to get their points across if they can’t read their Powerpoint presentation verbatim, slide by boring slide.

By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has told you about the ideal age difference between couples, and we’ve also told you that you shouldn’t date someone who was younger than half your age plus seven.

By web gangsta | Published:

By now, you’ve likely heard about the alleged scam being run by some enterprising business-oriented folks who would use their disability to a tourist advantage by renting out their services — and ability to go straight to the front of the line — as a Disney tour guide to rich families.

It’s been a long common “trick”, where anyone with a wheelchair could go to the handicap entrance and board a ride at a Disney park immediately.  But due to those aforementioned business transactions, because of the actions of a few Disney had to make dramatic changes to their policies and procedures.

By web gangsta | Published:

The worst charity in America

How not to do a mixtape


By web gangsta | Published:

Everyone prides themselves on being awesome at music selection.

At least, that’s what everyone’s iTunes mix tells us.  You go to one their parties, they put their iPod on “shuffle”, and for every one awesome song you have to sludge through two or three obscure tracks that are buried deep in their music catalog.
