Celebrate Love: Happy Valentine’s Day!

leave a comment »

People really should stop hating on Valentine’s Day.  Everywhere I look, I see negative posts about this holiday.  You can never have too much love, and a holiday dedicated to celebrating love is a GOOD thing.  The argument that we shouldn’t have the holiday because it’s once a year and people should love each other throughout the year is a logical fallacy.  Celebrating today doesn’t mean you won’t be celebrating each other for the rest of the year.  If you’re going to use that argument, then we shouldn’t celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgiving, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, etc.  So just stop complaining and appreciate the loved ones that surround and support you, which include family and friends.  The world’s problems would be solved if there was just more love.  On that note, Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

Mass Email Fail

with 2 comments

If you’re a big company that sends mass emails to millions of people, the least you can do is proofread the subject line before clicking the “send” button.

And so, this is my first submission to failblog.org:

Original post can be found here: http://cheezburger.com/View/4383706624

Note: “Their” is used to indicate a possession.  “They’re” is a contraction of the words “they” and “are.”  Therefore, the subject should have been, “Get Them Before They’re Gone.”

chainsaw

Ouch?  It reminds me of the movie “American Psycho.”

Google chainsaw, then scroll down to the Wikipedia description of it.  (In courtesy of Adam)

Help Victims Of Domestic Violence! (It only takes 2 seconds!)

with 3 comments

I received this information through a Facebook invite and find it very important to share with all of you, so I’m going to copy and paste it here:

Haven Hills provides safety and support to WOMEN AND CHILDREN victims of domestic violence, while working to break the cycle of abuse. Over the past 31 years, Haven Hills has served over 600,000 women and children, helping them rebuild their lives and free themselves from the horrors of domestic violence

YOU CAN HELP HAVEN HILLS GET MONEY JUST BY SEARCHING THE INTERNET!

Goodsearch.com is a site powered by Yahoo! that donates 1 cent to your charity each and every time you search for anything. When you go onto the site it asks you what charity you are searching for and you put in Haven Hills and from that point on Goodsearch donates directly to Haven Hills. It costs us nothing!

Even better — they have a companion site – Goodshop.com and each of the stores on there donate between 2% and 20% of each internet sale to the charity you designate. The percentages are shown on the site and there are well over 200 stores participating – Macy’s, Target, Best Buy, Walmart, etc. It’s FABULOUS!

Please begin using Goodsearch.com as your search engine and Goodshop.com to buy things on the internet. In this economy it is a terrific, no cost way for Haven Hills to receive much needed revenue.

Tell all your friends about it, too! Thank you for supporting the women and children of Haven Hills.

This Is What Happens When People DON’T Read

with 12 comments

Lately everyone’s been freaking out over the Facebook terms of use, and I can’t help but laugh. Reason being is that before you install any of the applications on your Facebook page, it SPECIFICALLY says that you are allowing everything affiliated with that application to have access to all your profile information. It’s like only two sentences and it’s always been there, so I don’t see as to why people are NOW freaking out about it. Facebook also specifically says that it will never use your information or pictures as a means of advertisement to others (whatever you do only shows up only to the friends you’ve accepted). As far as the messaging goes, you have the same format for your emails: even though you may delete your email account, the person you sent your email to still has what you sent them, so that’s not a new concept.

What you guys should really be freaking out about is the terms of use you’ve accepted but haven’t read with your Google, Yahoo, Hotmail, Photobucket, Flikr, etc. accounts because THEY’RE the ones who have access to your personal emails and have the right to delete you at any time and still keep all your personal information (all your emails, photos, etc.) You’ve all agreed to those terms by checking boxes while creating those accounts. I mean, we all skip reading that stuff because it’s long, dry, boring, and somewhat complicated, but it’s there and it’s something you’ve manually accepted and should take a look at once you get a chance.
