The Top Foodie Destinations in America


By web gangsta | Published:

People love to eat.  When you hear about where people went on a vacation, the first question after “where did you go?” is “what did you eat while you were there?”

There’s a reason that Las Vegas has become a foodie destination for both chefs looking to make a name for themselves as well as gastro-fans who love to tweet out pictures of their dinner to their followers.

Video Fun: Boob Job or Adopted Child?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch knows a number of families that have adopted children or who have had children through invitro fertilization.  We’ve known our friends for years and celebrate their parenting successes with them just as we sympathized with them through their struggles to have children.

For some, adopting or invitro is the only choice they have for becoming a parent.  For others, it’s just another option to consider.

We know of one friend who wasn’t as close with a new parent as they should have been, and upon hearing of their new parent status decided to blurt out, “you look good for having just had a baby and come off maternity leave”.

They had adopted.  Our friend was embarassed, to say the least.

Contrary to popular belief, Hawaii is NOT the most expensive place to live in the US


By web gangsta | Published:

Did you know that one of the busiest Costco’s in the country is just outside the airport in Hawaii?

People fly in, taxi over to the Costco, and purchase their entire vacation supply immediately upon landing.  It’s cheaper to do it this way than it is to ship everything over yourself or to buy provisions at the grocery store.

Hawaii gets a bum wrap about this – their prices may be higher than on the continental 48 states, but that doesn’t mean that Hawaii is the most expensive place in the country to live, does it?

You’ll never guess what unusual item her parents left her in their will


By web gangsta | Published:

There are two things in life that are unavoidable: death and taxes.

And in some cases, some deaths can lead to more taxes if the estate planning and last will and testament aren’t handled carefully.

After all, there’s a reason there are some ARTICLES ABOUT UNUSUAL WILLS and bequethes, with millions upon millions of dollars being left to care for family pets or monkeys.

What do Dodgeball and Musical Chairs have in common?


By web gangsta | Published:

Like most of us, Web Watch remembers the joys and the horrors of grade school gym class.

Remember that annual tradition of learning square dancing during the cold winter months?  Nobody liked doing that, but it was something for the gym teachers to foist upon their charges and hope for the best.

Anything was better than running laps, typically.  Square dancing wasn’t it.

What do you call carbonated beverages: “Coke”, “Pop”, “Soda”?


By web gangsta | Published:

When you’re traveling around the country and you pull into the local diner, how do you answer when the waitress asks you if you’d like a Coke?

Do you assume that she’s asking you if you actually would like a Coca-Cola product, or do you think she’s referring to any beverage generically as “Coke”?  For some, a pop is a soda. For others, a soda is a pop.

If you want to survive high school, don’t play lacrosse, soccer, or water polo


By web gangsta | Published:

High school athletics are nothing to sneeze at.

For some, it’s a required part of the curriculum, intended to encourage healthy living and the strong development of young bodies still growing.

For others, it’s a way out of a podunk town and into a major university or professional career.

But if you participate in a solid high school sports program, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up hurt…. or even dead.

First impressions are important.

And research shows that those first impressions during that initial 12 minutes of contact are the most important 12 minutes you’ll have when you’re trying to land a date.

By web gangsta | Published:

And because Web Watch is all about educating you on new terms and phrases – the medical term for this is “paruresis“.
