Want to lose weight? Fruits and vegetables won’t help


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody seems to be on some sort of diet these days.

And for the most part, diets do their job of reducing caloric intake and helping people lose their desired weight (when combined with a proper exercise program, of course).

But as we’ve said in the past, some diets are better than others.  But the core of most diets are that you should be able to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables.

Or maybe not.

By web gangsta | Published:

As you grow older and think about the different places you could possibly move to, a few options regularly come up –  Florida?  Arizona? Tennessee?

The primary focus tends to be on taxes, and how big of a hit your retirement nest egg could take every year if you choose the wrong state to retire in.

But is that the only criteria you should use when choosing a place to live?  Probably not.

The WORST YouTube Videos, Ever


By web gangsta | Published:

You know how you have all your friends sharing with you the most awesome VIRAL VIDEO that they’ve seen today?

Don’t you hate it when those viral videos that they think are awesome are some video that you’ve seen, like, TWO MONTHS AGO?

If the video is truly meant to be viral, everyone in the world would be talking about it at that moment in time.  Viral videos don’t take months upon months to reach saturation – they’re relatively instant when they hit.

But all viral videos have to start somewhere.  How would YOU like to be the FIRST PERSON TO SEE A VIDEO and then be the one to promote it?

You’d have FAME!

You’d have NOTORIETY!

You could be the YOUTUBE VIRAL VIDEO EXPERT! Continue reading THE WORST YOUTUBE VIDEOS, EVER

In today’s technology age, it’s easy to identify the history of certain things.

The first phonebook?  Hard to know.  The first wristwatch? Questionable.

The origin of the sandwich? We know the (supposed) story, but we aren’t able to pinpoint the exact ingredients or date that the sandwich was invented.

As you are, as is your car.
