How long does it take the average person to poop?


By web gangsta | Published:

How much time do you spend in the bathroom when it’s time to go?

Are you a Super Duper Pooper, able to squeeze one out in a matter of seconds at any time of day?  Or are you more the type of person who will wallow in the bathroom stall with the entire Sports section of the daily paper and then wonder why you didn’t think ahead to bring in the stock pages too?

Sleep better by doing this one simple thing with your feet!


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch doesn’t know why scientists bother doing all their fancy research to discover how we can get better sleep.

All they have to do is ask pretty much any adult what one thing they do that seems to work every time:

Want kids to eat school lunch? Give ’em chocolate milk


By web gangsta | Published:

Remember those school lunches we used to hate?

Bland pizza bread.  Beefaroni. Chicken nuggets.

It’s tough trying to make interesting, nutritional meals if the kids aren’t interested in eating anything beyond the basic mac ‘n cheese or hamburger.

What would you do for a dollar?


By web gangsta | Published:

What would you do for a dollar?

It’s a fair question.  Web Watch has offered $1 to many friends when they said they’d do “anything for money”.  Apparently, it seems, a single dollar was not what they had in mind when they made the offer.

We say that if you’re going to offer to do anything for money, you should definitely lower your expectation of what dollar amount is going to be offered to you.  What you think you’re worth may not be the same as what others believe.

How to unclog a toilet while on a date


By web gangsta | Published:

Plunging a clogged toilet is never fun.

Forget all the hassle of having to ask your date if they have a plunger in their apartment. What do you do with the plunger when you’re done?  You can’t hand it back to them before you head out for your intimate dinner reservation?  Not on a first date, at least.  That’s more a 4th or 5th date.

Top 5 Indicators of a Dirty Restaurant Kitchen


By web gangsta | Published:

If there’s one thing that you should make note of, it’s the FOOD SAFETY INSPECTION notices that are posted in your local restaurants.

There are only two reasons why an Inspection Score is not posted: the manager forgot to do so, or the score is embarrassing to the owner/manager.

The former is seldom likely to happen, as not having the score posted itself is a violation to be noted on the next review.  The latter is more the case.  Some locations do everything they can to hide a low score from being visible to the inquiring public, from placing it far away behind a counter – visible, but not readable; to placing it behind other paperwork on the wall – also visible, but obscured.

We do know of one fast-food chain location that was so proud of their “100 out of 100” score that they made a 2′ x 3′ poster of the inspection and placed it at the front door. No hiding from that.

How to tell if an item is on sale at your local store


By web gangsta | Published:

Have you ever been to a store like Target or Costco and see something you’d like to buy – but set it back on the shelf because you “know it’s going to be on sale soon anyway, so why should I buy it now?”

JCPenney went through this thought process recently and said “why wait for a sale? our prices will always be the sale price!”… and their sales plummeted.  It ends up that people LOVE shopping sales, and JCP reinstated a higher regular pricing vs lower sales pricing model like all other retail stores.
