Just put the phone down, okay?
I doubt very few people will disagree with me that driving can be hard work and even more so when you are first starting to drive by yourself if you can not avoid flashing lights or a random beep then you really should not be driving.
I read an article the other day on the BBC (Signal-blocking phone pouches’ for St Patrick’s pupils) where a school gave up with an idea where they would give their students special bags that is able to block mobiles signals from working so they will not get any phone calls, text messages, emails app alerts or social media notices and in theory this idea is not a bad one … until you think that the students they are giving this too can not just turn off their phone or hell turn it to silent.
Do it for the Likes!
I doubt there is a single person reading this right now that could honestly say they do not know what Facebook is, what Twitter is or any of the 100 millions social networks and I am pretty sure most people that uses social networks have that one friend that is always posting pictures about everything they are doing and so fore.
I imagine you are debating with yourself right now why this is a problem and it isn’t in a way – if you don’t want to see people posting pictures about something then you can just unfollow them but its more to do with people who are simply maintaining an online image so that they can make their lives looks perfect … which to them they see as long as they are getting a ton of likes it is.
Seriously, its creepy.
I would be lying if I said that this was the newest and latest trend that has appeared with young parents as I do not know as I often ignore posts people make about their children (no offence to anyone, but it isn’t interesting to me) but something I have noticed lately is there is a lot of people making accounts for their babies or young children on the likes of Facebook … and then actually post “as them”.
Now I can understand someone may want to make a Facebook page for their baby so that their friends and family could see latest pictures and stuff that the child has been up to which they would normally share via phone calls but its creepy as fuck as soon as you start posting, commenting and liking stuff AS your actual child.
EDIT: Do NOT use this feature if you do any screen recording such as what I do with the AverMedia for Playing Games with Snat. It will cause frame drops and have cause me to lose over a week worth of footage that I will need to record yet again.
Everything in this article is going to be heresay as I am not providing screenshots of before and after or video footage but simply will be speaking about my experiences from what I notice. Take it with a grain of salt – your milage will vary.
A short while ago there has been a new update for Windows 10 which brings a couple of features (Download Windows 10 Update) such as the new Dark Mode (Microsoft’s version of F.lux), a new picture editor and the one we will be discussing today which is the gaming mode.
The cheese is there somewhere, honest.
The first of many reviews to come and this one comes from the massive wonderful supermarket chain known as ASDA. For those that do not know that quite a lot of the different ASDA supermarkets offers food which is done by a different company whom name escapes my mind right now.
Nonetheless, I decided to give their chips and cheese a try although I suppose technically it should be called cheesy fries. I am not going to talk about service as everything I am reviewing is cheap food and seeing food will range from a single British Sterling to a few pennies that it would be unfair to comment on any service.
… no it isn’t.
For anyone that joined my Facebook page may remember that quite a few years ago – way back in 2012 I seem to recall I started a small food related blog reviewing cheap and bad food.
Well for anyone that knows me well will know the blog never “really” kicked off that well and I never got around to updating as much as I would have liked too.
The good news is I decided to restart it as a category on Tweaked for your Pleasure and will be bringing over the old reviews and will be doing new ones as I find dodgy looking food, shady shops and so much more!
How our schools have failed.
Last year has been very interesting in the world of politics and as I am sure so many people who visits Tweaked for your Pleasure will have joined a debate about politics without knowing anything about it but the sad part is just how little informed people are when it comes to how the world works and you can debate it is by design but it is a shame nonetheless.
Let’s take a couple of topics that people face every day and I can bet you that the school you went too likely never even covered the topic in much detail and focused purely on “academic topics”. The first topic I will pick on is the one in the first paragraph – politics.
So with a new year upon its, people all around the world has already broken the promises they made to themselves about changing themselves and like other people I have a few. The one I am going to share on Tweaked for your Pleasure is not about losing weight (although that is the main one I am going to be doing) it’s about the reasons why I am aiming to go vegetarian as much as I can this year.
The primary reason and you might not be surprised about this knowing about myself but it’s so I am able to keep kosher as much as “reasonably possible”. The reason for this is all vegan food is kosher by default as it does not have any animal products thus you do not need to worry about how the animal was killed nor worrying about mixing up dairy and meat products.
