Yomadic does not post that often anymore. But when he does it is always a treat and this is a hell of a post. Getting access to the digs of the former Ukranian President, wow! When this guy was run out of town (and into the arms of Putin) I remember seeing some of the first pictures and news coverage and I was also astounded by the glitz of this place. Remember, this is not Qatar or some other country ruled by a fat king…this is Ukraine for crying out loud! And you get access to it by Petro, here is Petro and the lion:
Read the whole thing and enjoy it and don’t let me ruin it, I can not do it justice. While Titan blogs keep posting shit to trick their readers to apply for credit cards to make even more money I like to stick to the mission and bring you eclectic content from the blogosphere every day because I guess I have no integrity lol.
As a sidenote, pardon me, in the same day I was accused I have no integrity, I was called a moron by #1 blog troll Ingy and then another reader emailed and told me I am the “light in the darkness”…so which one is it? Okay, don’t answer that. Lets move on, I want to make your slow Sunday even better because it makes me feel good!
Okay, here is an excerpt which will convince you to read the whole thing:
The thing is, most people believe that whatever amount of money they have, it’s not quite enough. It seems to be human nature, and it explains why so many people toil away in a job they hate for so many years. Paychecks are like crack cocaine, and being human in the modern world, stuck on the hedonic treadmill, is unavoidably habit forming. Like all junkies, many of us carry on our lives with little regard to rationality.
Incrementally, as time passes, we repeatedly and irrationally brush aside the messages of our own intuition, and continue evermore to ignore the briefness of our life on this planet. We obey the imaginations and machinations of other people with zombie-like deportment, and we all hope that the pay-off is worth it – an assumption that more money will, hopefully, lead to more happiness.
Not sure why but I have been fascinated by robots lately and what is happening in our society, how it affects jobs, AI and so on. This is a fascinating read, a few excerpts:
Of course, if computers and robots were doing most of the work, maybe we wouldn’t need jobs. Immense wealth could be produced with very little human work. You can imagine, if robots were doing half of everybody’s job, that we could simply work half as much, pay a “robot tax” to share the cost of their development and maintenance, and society would be just as prosperous.
Firstly, we have no idea what will really happen. Beyond the imminence of self-driving cars and robot-supervised grocery stores, we can’t be certain it will be catastrophic.
Once robots are fulfilling our current fixation on things and conveniences, we might finally recognize the role of thousands of subtle human qualities that we all value, but never talk about when we talk about the economy.
If the robots take over all the utilitarian stuff, we might need to become a society of carers, understanders, expressers and connectors, the way we are today a society of managers, designers, laborers and servers. And maybe we’re better suited for that anyway.
It is hard to believe John Lydon is 61, wow! For you kids who never heard of this guy, here is his wikipedia entry. Or google Sex Pistols. Punk all the way baby! No compromises, full of integrity and staying true to the cause. Okay, for the most part anyway.
Great interview, I really enjoyed it. You may enjoy it too but if not interested okay to skip it and get your mother in law an Amex SPG card for 35k SPG points, LAST CHANCE, HIGHEST BONUS EVER, HURYYYYYY….ooopsie, got a little carried away, I am such a selling machine lol.
The interview covers many topics, a few excerpts:
The art of communication has been replaced by mobile phones and tablets, which is a great shame. I don’t want to meet people electronically; I want to meet them physically. That’s not to say all that modern technology offers is bad, but certainly a lot of it is two steps backwards.
Sex Pistols is a damn fine band. I don’t think we were much appreciated at the time but, quite frankly, I can’t hang around and wait for people to catch up to that. I have to go forwards with my own life and lead by example if there is going to be any leading at all.
Yeah… don’t take yourself too seriously. You have to be able to laugh at yourself. Remember that things like self-doubt are not actually hindrances, they’re just the gift of preparation for what is about to come.
This is a vicious attack on Donald Trump. By Matt Taibbi. From Rolling Stone. As yet another tweet storm is released by our President you wonder if Matt is too kind…Well, nope. Lets just say that this publication will not be invited to the White House anytime soon and it is not the highest caliber anyway…If you are a Trump supporter you should seek out material that challenges and does not agree with your thinking, it is very healthy and nothing about it is fake.
Can you name one blogt that takes you from Petro in Ukraine, goes deep into robots and AI, to John Lydon punk talk, to a vicious beating of the US President to this one…saved the best for last…vibrators! Since we like to educate here are some facts that will blow (pun devilishly intended) you away:
The vibrator market is worth roughly $2.5 billion globally, with some 60 million sex toys sold every year. A cool $750 million of that is coming out of the US — more than double that country’s market for condoms ($350 million). One company alone — California’s Doc Johnson, the “Procter & Gamble of sex toys” — estimates that they pour 125 tons of rubber to make 330,000 vibrators each month, translating to $75 million in sales every year. That is an insane amount of money, and it shows no sign of slowing down. British sex shop Lovehoney estimated that by 2020, the market will be worth $50 billion annually … as much as smartphones and computers.
LELO’s not alone in exploiting the billion-dollar business of vibrators and cashing in on the climax of savvy millennial women shopping for — and pleasing — themselves. There’s Lioness, a smart vibrator that tracks your orgasms like a fitbit, feeding information back to you about the intensity and duration of your climax via a neat little app. Funded on Kickstarter in just four days, the first set of products will be hitting bedrooms around the world this month.
The market for smart vibrators and the apps they are aligned with hasn’t slowed, despite the recent court case against We-Vibe, a sex toy company sued for storing intimate data about its users on very hackable servers. Apps like OMG Yes, which provides easy-to-follow, gorgeously put together instructional tutorials on how to reach better orgasms, have seen booming growth as well. Some 40,000 men and women have forked over the $39 fee to become members of the platform, thanks in part to Emma Watson’s glowing endorsement (“I wish it had been around longer,” she revealed to a bemused Gloria Steinem in an interview last year).
Screw the banks, I better get on the vibrator affiliate marketing and sell away here…I may even work on special deals for you ladies, buy four and get one freeeeeee, like they do at SPG and Hilton Honors…bwahahahaha. I mean, I have no integrity so I should just get on with it and sell recreational weed and vibrators, I hear this market is explosive 😉
