Random is a highly overused word

Sounded like kids playing, and I live in a relatively quiet little neighbourhood. But it's 2 am so I opened the front door to inspectHumans, around my age, running around setting up what looked like a camp site. They had chairs, a cooler full of booze and food, a propane stove and one of them had set up my sprinkler to my hose...I'm confused, and wander out to ask what is the story behind this.They are just returning from a camping trip, and their car had broken down just by my house. It was a nice night and they were all so hungover, they didn't want to deal with cabs, or figuring out where they were at all....On my lawn. They were having a lawn party, and didn't even invite me!I went inside and thought out calling the cops, or calling some friends to come stay with me...

4 Ways The BBC Could Be About To Change Forever

Uncategorized
The BBC needs to make the case for its existence in the face of political opposition. The BBC has always been closely scrutinised but it’s now facing unprecedented pressure to change the way it operates. View this image › BBC Last week’s announcement of the closure of youth channel BBC Three, was just the start of the political horse trading and negotiating that will take place between now and the renewal of the BBC’s Royal Charter in 2015. While its many defenders want to keep the Beeb as a vast, independent-minded broadcaster and web publisher, publicly-funded through the licence fee, there is political will to radically change it, cut its budget, make the UK’s media market more commercially competitive. Everyone seems to agree that the BBC ...

George Takei is a man of many hats: actor, activist, social media superstar, spacecraft helmsman and just your average Amazon shopper. Apparently, Takei can add troll to that list too. Inspired by Sharknado fever, Takei pranked his partner Brad with an inflatable shark, then shared his antics via an Amazon review. Read how I punked Brad with my own mini "sharknado."

No, Being A Vegetarian Won’t Kill You

Uncategorized
Despite what various reaches of the Internet may have told you, vegetarianism wont kill you. Youd think that, considering there are hundreds of millions around the world, theyd have noticed this incredibly inconvenient biological side effect by now. But no: the media are now reporting that being a vegetarian changes your DNA, gives you heart disease, and increases your chance of getting cancer. This, as you probably suspect, is nonsense. Its the accidental or willful misinterpretation of a study published in the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution. In actual fact, the study focused on the discovery of a genetic variant present in people whose ancestors primarily had a vegetarian diet, which means they processed food in a slightly different way to others. Does this mean ...

In honor of National Nude Day, why not drop your drawers and do a little jig in public? A bunch of folks did it in downtown Los Angeles and it seemed to work out just fine. Check out the surprisingly SFW video, which serves not just as a saucy start to the week but also an ad for VH1’s upcoming new series, Dating Naked, launching Thursday night. The clip, from ad agency Mistress, captures a diverse group of men and women –- different ages, various sizes, a mix of ethnicities -– dancing to “I’m Just Wild About Harry” while completely nekked. (They did keep on their shoes). They also, predictably, drew a curious catcalling and camera phone-wielding crowd, so those had to be some brave and body-confident participants.

The Internet sounded the alarm and, so it appears for now, Flickr has answered the call.

The target in question, of course, is new Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, who takes office amid hopeful buzz that she can turn around the ailing Internet giant.

5 Times You Should Ditch Pay-Per-Click Search

Image: Mashable Composite. iStockphoto, korhankaracan You may find it strange that someone who's been a practitioner of pay-per-click (PPC) ever since GoTo.com launched in 1998, and someone whose team manages hundreds of millions in PPC search spend annually, would pen a column on the topic of giving up on PPC search. The reality, however, is that in the hyper-competitive world of Google AdWords and Bing Ads, not everyone can survive. It's actually beyond survival of the fittest, because there are scenarios where even a fit company can't survive here. PPC search advertising is auctioned off in close to real time and, as in any auction, there are winners and losers. The winners get the click and the losers don't, or so it would seem. In auctions, there is a concept called the Winner's Curse...
