What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Some people don’t venture far from their own personal comfort zone when it comes to trying new foods. It’s why any FOOD CHALLENGE episode of any SURVIVOR season is always so much fun, as we watch people who are much hungrier than they normally would be throw their inhibitions away to get something – anything – into their stomachs.

How many weddings do you expect to attend this year?
If you’re at the age where all your friends are getting married seemingly every other weekend all summer long, perhaps you should think again about saying “yes” to every RSVP that comes your way.
Putting on a wedding can be costly, as everyone knows. But attending a wedding has costs of its own.
Continue reading AVERAGE COST OF ATTENDING A WEDDING: $539
So the other day, Web Watch was talking with our friends about BANDS WITH REGIONAL NAMES.
So we decided to come up with the ULTIMATE REGIONAL BAND NAME LIST.
Continue reading 20 GREATEST BANDS WITH REGIONAL OR GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES
Where are gay people most likely to live?
And to be more specific, where do people who classify themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender hang out the most? It really shouldn’t surprise anyone that some US states have more LGBT folks than others. The question is — which states are those?
Continue reading WHERE DO ALL THE GAY PEOPLE LIVE?
If you’ve ever been sick while on vacation, you know what a horrible experience it can be. Trust Web Watch on this, as we spent 2 miserable days holed up in our Disney hotel room on one vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth, unable to leave the relative comfort of the room for any length of time.
Yeah, it wasn’t pretty.
And if you’ve ever been sick while on a cruise ship where you don’t even have the luxury of finding a place to escape like you would have the opportunity to do if you were on land, then you can take the Web Watch Disney experience and multiply that by 100.

Web Watch knows a few people who have moved around the country for their relationships (or lack thereof in their former location).
We understand how important it can be to feel included in one’s neighborhood (whether that neighborhood is as small as a few city blocks, a suburban subdivision, or a larger metropolitan area). If you’re comfortable with WHO you are, but not comfortable WHERE you are, then chances are it’s not you that’s the problem, it’s those who are around you that are.

Are you happy at work?
Maybe Web Watch should ask the question a different way: does your job make you happy? Are you happy to GO to work?
Or are you happy to have any job at all, regardless of what it is?

Have you ever been to the Super Bowl?
The answer is probably going to be “likely not”, due to a number of reasons – not the least of which is how much money it can cost to purchase a single Super Bowl game ticket.

Web Watch must have been busy back in 2008, as we totally missed that 2008 was the YEAR OF THE POTATO.
Funny thing about websites dedicated to a singular year’s event: those sites never really get updated. Yet they persist forever with slightly outdated information on them, just waiting for someone to stumble upon them and gaze upon their glory.
Continue reading APPARENTLY, 2008 WAS THE “YEAR OF THE POTATO”
This year’s cold and flu season is said to be one of the worst ones in recent memory; that even with this year’s flu shot, you may still get sick with an unexpected variant that wasn’t identified early enough to make it into the vaccine.
Web Watch knows someone who – twice a day, like clockwork – wipes down their desk at work with antibacterial wipes. Some would say that is taking being a germaphobe a bit too far. Web Watch says that they’re just being careful with their working environment.
It’s not like the old days, where parents would purposefully encourage their kids to play with other kids’ toys without first spraying them down with disinfectent – all with the goal of building and reinforcing their child’s immune system.

Web Watch was on a trip recently, and as we often do, we found ourselves chatting with others in the airport.
And we sometimes find ourselves inquiring about people’s destinations and plans. You know, to live vicariously through others ont their adventures.
One couple, for example, was on a month-long tour of Australia and New Zealand, and they were travelling lightly through the airport – as they shipped their luggage overseas to meet them at their hotel upon arrival (it was less expensive overall than flying with the oversized/overweight bags, and they already had confirmation that their bags were waiting for them).
Another person was going to spend a week in San Diego on business, and he was travelling with just his oversized computer bag. He claimed that he had everything he needed in the one case for a week; he prefers to travel with as little complication as possible.

Have you heard about THE DELI MAN?
It’s a film currently in development that focuses on ZIGGY GRUBER, the owner of KENNEY AND ZIGGY’S DELICATESSAN in Houston.
That’s right, Houston Texas has Jewish delis. Who knew?

Ever wonder how much month there is to make in the restaurant business?
For the vast majority of small business owners, restaurants are one of the riskiest businesses to try to run; the failure rate is daunting.
But when you hit on a location, concept, menu, or otherwise have a high level of repeat customers who you can rely on for a steady income — then you have something.
And if you get to the point where you can appear on a list of the TOP GROSSING RESTAURANTS IN THE COUNTRY, then you know you’ve hit the big time.

Web Watch loves – and hates – haunted house attractions.
We love the concept, we love the designs. We love the insane creativity that goes on in putting on a successful Haunted House year after year.
But we wouldn’t be caught dead going to one as a guest. We don’t find running through a scare zone all that much fun.
We know, we’re in the minority on this, as Haunted Houses are multi-million dollar businesses these days.
Continue reading THE BEST HAUNTED HOUSES IN AMERICA
The future is a scary place, in part because nobody who’s been sent there in a time machine has ever come back (that we know of).
So we don’t have any future warnings of things that might be if we don’t change our ways.
