Survey shows that women expect men to pay for dates


By web gangsta | Published:

One would think that today’s dating scene should be a bit different from how it was back in the day. Times change, people change, philosophies on what is culturally acceptable change all the time.

Wearing sneakers out to a fancy dinner? Never used to do it, but now we do it all the time.   Dress up for airplane travel?  Not anymore – tank tops on hairy men are all the rage at the airport these days.

What is your favorite number? (Don’t tell us, we already know)


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s a reason that magicians and casinos both can fool you and take your money.

It’s all about the math.  The probability.  The statistics.

It’s about identifying the key common trait that everybody has, but is afraid to admit.  If a magician asks you to pick a card, which card do you always pick?  Do you think of one card, and then immediately switch to some other card (saying to yourself, “aha! they wanted me to pick that first card that came to my head, but I’ll show them”)…. only to find yourself at the end looking directly at the magician presenting you with The Card You Picked!?!?:!

It’s not always luck.

By web gangsta | Published:

A common theme in today’s pop culture is how concerned kids are with when is the “right time” to lose their virginity.

Entire movies have been made on the subject – Tom Cruise’s Losin’ It is probably not on the higher end of his personal accomplishments, we’re fairly certain.  But what once was a Very Special Episode of Blossom or Family Ties, or one of those mandatory Afterschool Specials that we all rushed home to watch together – it’s now become almost a punchline in any major sitcom or movie being made today.

Top 10 Happiest Places to Work


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has said it before and we’ll say it again: if you’re not happy at work, then you need to find a new opportunity.

Of course, there are always exceptions to this rule.

If you know that what you’re doing now is merely temporary, then no need to rock the boat and jump ship before you’re ready to do so. And there are different ways to measure happiness – sometimes the job you’re doing now may not be making you happy per se, but it allows you to do other things that do.  Like that overnight shift may not be ideal, but it frees up your daytime hours to spend time with the kids or attend school to be able to advance to the next career choice.
