What day of the week are you most likely to get a job?


By web gangsta | Published:

Applying for jobs can be stressful, especially if you’re sending out resume after resume, cover letter after cover letter, and not getting any nibbles of interest back.

You’ve reviewed your resume. You’ve rewritten your cover letter countless times.  You’ve rehearsed your elevator speech in front of the mirror until you’re blue in the face.  But you’re still not getting any leads back from the applications you’ve put in.

Maybe there’s absolutely nothing wrong with your paperwork.  Maybe all that’s wrong is the way you’re going about applying for jobs in the first place.

Playboy’s List of Top Party Schools 2013


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s that time of year again, when a young co-ed’s thoughts turn to partying down.

Over the years, Web Watch has shared with you PLAYBOY’S PARTY SCHOOLS list, but they typically are released in the Spring, when high school students are making their choices for where to attend school in the Fall.

This year, Playboy has decided to release their list in the Fall — probably to allow high school seniors a full year to consider where they would like to apply to over the coming months (and for incoming college freshmen to reconsider their collegiate choice, for at least one semester).

Five Worst Places in the World to be a Woman


By web gangsta | Published:

With all the recent news about major gender-related crimes and intolerable acts against women in India and other countries, Web Watch thought it would be worthwhile to point out that this is not new news at all.

Women have been fighting against cultural bias for years – decades – longer… and this doesn’t, shouldn’t be the case in this day and age.

Science proves what women have been saying all along: size does matter


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has reported it before, that SIZE DOES MATTER to women.

The number one reason why teenagers should never date


By web gangsta | Published:

We were all teenagers once.

And come Springtime, they say, is when a young heart turns to finding love.   Well, maybe not “love” per se, but how about “strong like”?

Being a teenager is a tough time with lots of challenges due to the lack of experience that being in ones’ twenties gives you the proper perspective on.  Adults may not always have all the answers, but they’ve lived through the same struggles that teenagers are going through today – if only the teens in their lives would think to ask for that advice.

Update on Girls Gone Wild lawsuit


By web gangsta | Published:

So a few years ago, Web Watch wrote about a woman who LOST A LAWSUIT AGAINST GIRLS GONE WILD regarding her appearance in a Girls Gone Wild video, even though she is on film saying “no, I will not do this”.

The jury said that there was “implied consent” just for Tamara Favazza being present in the bar where the filming was going on, regardless of whether she willingly removed her top on her own (which she did not do).

10% of all African-Americans may be surprised by this one fact


By web gangsta | Published:

Most people have a fairly good idea of who they are and where they come from.

The traditional family structure is typically in place, with family members across the board getting together at some point in their lives: parents, brothers, sisters naturally. Grandparents, usually.  Great-grandparents becoming a bit more rare, but still often seen.  Cousins, uncles abound.  Great-great-grandparents can be a bit tougher to gather for a party – but it certainly could happen.  Going back in time further than that generation, you’ll rely on geneology records and stories handed down throw family’s joint recollections.

The more sex you have, the more likely you are to abuse alcohol or drugs


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has long heard the old adage that too much alcohol and drugs would lead to too much sex, whether it be promiscuous college adventures after druken fraternity parties with your secret crush or something more dubious from club dates or online hookups.

But all that may just be a precursor to what really happens later in life, especially with women (men, not so much)…

Current tattoo trends, for women – and what they mean about you


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that a tattoo is a personal choice.  A statement.

When you have a tattoo, you don’t need to explain its meaning to anyone; why you have it, where you have it, what that tattoo represents — that’s entirely you, and no one else’s.

The 11 Worst Companies in America to Work For


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody has a career line item that you’ve considered leaving off your resume for various reasons.

For some, it’s because you don’t want to acknowledge ever having worked at that company.  For others, it’s because the job was so horrible that you didn’t even make it an entire year.

Maybe you were asked to leave, as a mutually beneficial decision.  Maybe you just left your ID badge on your desk, walked out without a word to anyone, and quietly slipped out while nobody was watching.

Regardless of your reasons for hating your job, you should rest happy knowing one thing:
