I finished Infinite Jest, by the way.  I liked it quite a bit.  I recommend it to anyone that's, like, alive and reads stuff.  I think I'll go into more of his stuff (maybe short stories first).

Though, I found out a couple months ago that Howl's Moving Castle was actually a novel (series, really).  So I'm starting that now.

So a Facebook friend (really, someone I went to elementary school with, so "friend" is an overstatement), in accordance to instructions, shared a post from "Chevy USA" in order to qualify for one of five free Chevy trucks.

I looked at Chevy USA and saw that it only had 745 Likes. I voiced my suspicions that an established company like that would have thousands upon thousands of followers (in fact, 16 million). I said that such a group was likely created for Like farming so it could be sold later. Her response was, "ya never know." That's when I just have to give up.

I always give up. It's the only sensible solution.

The only way to win is to not play.

The desire for free shit is just so strong that she wasn't willing to consider that it's a scam. And that's what they bank on.

Oh, and now the picture instructs the user to visit a web page. Yeah, I commented on it in all caps (so I look like a lunatic) warning people that it's probably a scam.

I also sent the link to Chevy itself.

I don't even care for Chevies. I just hate bullshit.

I say let natural selection run its course. If they give their credit card information for their free Chevy, I wouldn't try to stop them.

You're just  A GOOD PERSON KUILDEOUS.

Went scuba diving in the ocean for the first time and was too exhausted to do anything for the rest of the day afterwards. I have newfound respect for Pearl Diver.

Apparently that's how it is called when you repeatedly ask your morning alarm to wait one more turn so you can buy another Province...

That's definitely happened to me with Dominion, and also with music. I remember one time I spent many hours arranging a piece that modulated into C flat and the next morning I didn't want to get up because I was in C flat and none of my clothes were and I couldn't go outside without clothes that were in the same key. Like I was seriously ready to ask someone to get me some clothes in C flat.

I've also made food whose taste had too many bass frequencies in it.

It's pretty much been like that since Youtube started, so don't worry about it.

If you would like to fix it I highly recommend Herp Derp

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

Until recently I was using crappy earbuds I got for free that only worked in one ear. Then they didn't work in either ear, and I accidentally ripped them in half. But my mom hates earbuds and never opened hers so I snagged an awesome pair of Apple Earbuds and it feels like a surround sound system because it surrounds me instead of just being off to the left.

How actually get a good pair of earbuds, and you'll be in heaven. I can help you find that perfect pair too.

The best type of earbuds are the cheap/free ones. It's not like I use them for anything besides bad rap and YouTube.
