Fantastic Wife and Where I Found Her.
So the fact that I haven't been on my own blog in several years is actually shocking. In my defense I do have 24 draft posts written but never actually published...most of them are rubbish , semi coherent babble or half formed thoughts. While I am not actually sure this post will end up any different I am genuinely making an effort to finish this one.
So lets dive right in shall we.
Brain Freeze , Why People with ADHD need Downtime
Right now, I'm beating my head against the desk because I’m stuck.
I can usually pull myself together and find some way to focus on what i need to do... but right now... nope...nada...squirrel... My ADHD just kicked my ass...
I'm in that uncomfortable spot called stagnation.
I’m not moving forward.
My wheels are spinning like crazy, but I just can’t get traction.
I loathe and detest this “stagnant” feeling.
Pay More for Less?
There are many great broadband deals available, but unless you familiarise yourself with all the products on offer you may sign up for a service which makes no sense at all.
With the myriad of promotional offers available, especially in the mobile data market, it is easy to sign on the dotted line for a products which are far more expensive than a better service. In some cases you get can double the value at less than half the price of what you would normally pay.
Here are some of the broadband products which do not make any sense signing up for.
Apple launched Siri, the virtual assistant feature in 2011 with the launch of iPhone 4S. Since then it has been constantly tweaking the virtual assistant to make it smarter, and more reliable.
In iOS 6, Apple introduced a number of improvements to Siri such as the ability to respond to your sports, restaurants and movie related queries, give you turn-by-turn directions, open apps and update your status on Facebook and Twitter.
In iOS 7, Siri has received another overhaul. Here’s what new:
OK lets face it... I am truly crappy at this whole blogging thing. I keep no schedule and no consistency but then again I did warn you in the first post , scroll back if you don't believe me.
If you have never read a Calvin & Hobbes cartoon stop right now, and go find some... its incredible , intelligent and a good argument can be made that Fight Club the movie is actually based on Calvin & Hobbes grown up (more on that at a later stage)
Unfortunately the author passed away but not before leaving us with these incredible words... which another artist has done in the Calvin & Hobbes style as a tribute.... read... absorb... share... you'll be happier for the trouble
The Cost of Being #Superman #Spiderman #Hulk #Batman & #Wolverine
For someone who's a fan of superhero movies, the past few years have been the golden age of superhero cinema , and there seems to be no indication of this stopping. Not since Avengers took in a bajillion dollars....
Superhero movies are the cash cows of Hollywood... and are finally being done right, big budgets, good scripts, passionate directors, its almost so good we can forgive Batman and Robin....no ... no we cant... ever...
But have you ever wondered what it would cost to be a superhero?
Well have a look at these awesome infographics below to find out.
Inflations a bitch
So apparently I've been very distracted since I missed this announcement from Comic-Con...and to my american friend who went to Comic-Con... damn you pretty lady ... damn you ....
So incase you also missed it... Warner Brothers announced the squeal to Man of Steel will be a Batman / Superman cross over in 2015 ... HELL YEAH!
Here is a video for those interested
Comic-Con Superman / Batman Announcement
How the hell did I miss this ?!?!
So believe it or not... The blue and the green lines in this picture are actually the same colour...
Being a scientist is hard work, but being a mad scientist is even harder. There are so many additional dangers, and you can rarely even recognize them, because, you know, you’re mad and all. I highly recommend all mad scientists tape these 11 “don’ts” on their fridge or hunchbacked assistant, whichever they see most.
If you've ever wanted to know what it would cost give or take a couple hundred million to be Iron man... Have a look below
So I got about a page into writing this post when I realised I had seriously gone off topic and into a very complicated, unnecessarily verbose post about human behaviour, shifts in who holds power and ducks... I will one day finish that post when I have the opportunity to give it the attention it requires.
Todays post however is more to please my inner nerd and maybe help those that need it. So I have 3 (what I think is interesting) things to share with you.
And the Awesomeness Award for Feb goes to Alicia Keys....this is too amazing!
Google... I'm sorry.. but you betrayed me...hid things from me...held me back...and broke your promises of a better life... I think we need some time apart...maybe see other browsers...or search engines...its not me... its you!!
What went wrong? When did Google decide it hated me? OK...its maybe a tad megalomaniacal (is that a real word?) of me to think that they are out to get me personally....no its probably just a case of they meant well...they tried..but in the end they just fucked us over...While I am no expert on the subject of abusive relationships (or anything else) I do believe that one of the first major steps to getting out of an abusive relationship is the realisation and admitting to yourself that you are in one...and then if Crime and Investigation Channel is any indication...the next step is to kill the bastard and run away to mexico with the kids...
I'd been suspecting for a long time that something was wrong...that things had changed for the worse until I finally had to admit that maybe its time for a Google break...well kinda...so lets start with some of the changes that annoy me...
OK before we start... Please don't be a retard and think that this is in any way scientific , accurate, researched or even well thought out...it is simply my opinion and experiences on my systems...it may differ for you...
This is what happens when Im bored... I find out YouTube can turn into YouTube Tv apparently... pretty cool
OK so hands up if you're a nerd.... ok now put your hands down you look like a moron... well I am... and as a result I tend to push buttons... and i love tech and design... so maybe this is common knowledge... but i just found it and this is my blog so I get to write what i want... did you know YouTube actually can pop out of your chrome browser and transform into something way cooler apparently called YouTube TV... check out the pics below... does that look like your normal youtube? Start any video on youtube in chrome.... right click on the video and select pop out... and there you go...
fuck it im going to bed now...
Im assuming that if you are reading this article you came across it on a social network...or you are very lost... well this is the 1 app that is a MUST have if you are active on social networks...hell even if you arent on multiple networks this is a damn nice way to find interesting articles .
In short Flipboard is an app that takes your social networks and shows you the info on them in a magazine style format... trust me... its awesome... cause I like many of you have several networks Im on... Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Linkedin, Instagram, Soundcloud, Google Reader, plus I read several blogs and rss feeds... thats alot of info flying back and forth... and thats alot of apps to open... or websites to visit... Flipboard is all of it in one place...where you can read your updates easily... plus share , comment, like, tweet and all that without having to go to a diff app... and its pretty... i mean it shows the info to you in such a visually pleasing and interesting manner you'll actually start reading your facebook news feeds again...dont lie... you've been skipping over most of the stuff... go get it now... thank me later... and dont forget to actually connect your various accounts to it (yes Ive actually had to explain this) cause if you dont you wont get the full experience.
for more go head over to their website www.flipboard.com or the appstore
OK so Ive spent the last couple hours drifting in and out of consciousnesses like a Japanese teen in a fast and a furious movie. So I've just given up staring at my ceiling or wall or floor... and before you even start... and you know who you are... yes i did try switching off all my electronic distractions...end result was staring at a ceiling i could no longer see.
So now I give up... luckily Im still on holiday for another couple of weeks...
OK for the 3 of you who are still here and not out plotting my death because you're back at work and Im not... here is something utterly odd that I came across... feast your eyes on the insanity below...yes that's actual gold...as in the metal... not gold coloured fabric...
