Political Correctness has made us racist

I am sure everyone has heard of the term “political correctness” but if you have not it is basically a term used for all the bullshit people say you must do when really no really gives a shit. I am sure you have noticed in the media you will always hear people call a “different coloured” skin person a “African American” although the person may actually have been born in Europe but hey, political correctness means we must apply a Government approved label to everyone.

So while we have our African-American what do you think we call “white coloured people” these days?

Caucasian, British, Irish, American or well whatever said person comes from is normally the answer. Think back for a few minutes when you last filled in a Government issued form, applied for a job or hell even ordered something online today you will always see a bit where it asks about skin colour and yes really you do on Government forms. Quite a funny logic when you see those forms are to “help” the person reading it to make a choice so they are not racist because having to allow X amount of people who apply to something have to be “non-white” is not racist at all.

Sempre provare ancora e ancora

Many years ago now I remember a time where I used to hate anything that looks, felt, smelt or even sounded like a vegetable and would go out of my way not to actually eat them. Just the sight of them used to make me feel nausea and this stayed with me for ages. However I remember this one day I went out to an Italian cafe which was ran by an Italian family.

... no thanks

… no thanks

Now I am sure you heard of the stereotype of their mothers and I would be lying if the mother and owner of the cafe was not the same. So I ordered myself a pizza with chips (yes, I know it is a vegetable) and the owner just smiled and said – sure thing sweetie. So after a short while, I noticed it actually took some time to make and cook the pizza but that was alright, I was not in a hurry when I noticed something – everyone had vegetables on their plate.

Earning loads with Google Adsense

Lately I have seen many people lately asking how they are able to make “a couple of thousands” with Google Adsense. Then I see these same people then asking how come they are not making anything with Google Adsense and well, I am going to chat for a few minutes about Google Adsense for those that may have found this article.

Firstly Google Adsense is not and never has been a method to get quick rich by simply just placing adverts on a website and expecting the money to start rolling in. There is a few key things you need to do before you can even think about earning anything from Google Adsense.

Randomly appearing food

Out of all my articles that talks about random things – this one beats them all.

Let me set the background. So yesterday night I was typing away on my laptop then the thought slowly came to me that I really should have a nap for an hour or so and then carry on. So I turn the music down, switch over all chat clients over to my PDA and then push my laptop to the side and lay down.

After a few minutes I went to sleep. A short while later (around thirty minutes later), I hear my PDA buzzing like there is no tomorrow and woke up where suddenly, on my laptop lid I see the following.

Confused, I opened it up to check what it actually was and well, it was chips and cheese.

At this point, I was again confused. So after eating the chips and cheese and then replying to a few messages, I then went on to wonder a few things. First of all, why the hell was their chips and cheese from what appeared to be from a fast food outlet next to me when no one else was even here ?

So peeps I have a question for you all.

Do you know where this place could have been, it was nice -  I would not mind going there myself. If the packaging and the style of the chips etc ring a bell with any major fast food outlets, let me know

Would have took better pictures, but I did not turn the light on and well I did not actually plan on writing this article – I was just gonna post it on Twitter with the message how the hell did that get there but this morning I figured an article would have be better.

Trip to the past

As my old viewers may have noticed (if you have not noticed it, I really hope you are a blind user) that Tweaked for your Pleasure has “downgraded” back to the original theme used during 2007 to – 2010 or was it 2009, I can not remember anymore.

Anyhow as much as this is a delight to a few of you, I suppose I best take a few minutes to post about why this has happened and the future or whatever I am going to type about and you are going to read anyway, even if you do not enjoy these types of posts.

Dating back many years which is higher than my viewers average IQ, a friend of mine called Adam Wright created his own little Dr Who show which ultimately gave birth to what he calls “Wrights Productions”.

Skipping loads of history no one cares about, he created the first website using Ellisfamily.TK fansite and then created the first Wrights Productions website using HTML, MkPortal, e107, WordPress and then TFYP.Network.

Well thing is, it did not work out well. Before merging back, Wrights Productions had it’s own little community which got killed off during the merge and then my community that did not care so much about his videos. Sure, there was some issues as people brought up that maybe Wrights Productions should have been renamed as TFYP.Productions to fit in but it was not his fault.

Two main issues was both me and Tweaked for your Pleasure. No matter how much I try to sugar coat it, this site will always be a place for me to rant and that is all. The second was the lack of content from myself to Wrights Productions such as Playing Games with Snat.

Anyway back to the theme. Ricko Mann kindly made me a new theme which was simply titled as “TFYP” and kindly developed it for both the English and Hebrew versions of this website. When Wrights Productions merged with Tweaked for your Pleasure to form “TFYP.Network” in a very loose sense that Adam adapted the TFYP theme.

However what happened is his whole site become dependent on it such as his page layouts and all that and neither me, Adam or Ricko had time to redesign a unique theme for Wrights Productions and one condition I had with the spilt was that both sites looked different to each other.

So in the interest of making sure this happened, to the delight to a few viewers, I decided to change back to the old theme and re-add the features I needed from the newer one to this one. Wrights Productions then kept the Hebrew version of the theme and applied the English changes to recreate their blue layout.

So there you go, that was the divorce settlement and hopefully Wrights Productions re-gain it’s little community in one time. That said, I should also talk about Just a Community. I closed it down for two reasons which were:

  • Lack of people posting / replying.
  • TFYP.Network disbanding.

When I closed it down that a few people contacted me about it. I would not mind giving Just a Community another go in the future but if so, it would be it’s own site ran by someone else while I just give input. If you are willing to help out – let me know by using this pretty form.

To the people who did enjoy Wrights Productions, you can still catch their videos at Wrights Productions or by following them on their YouTube channel by clicking here. Snat’s vBlog, Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure and Playing Games with Snat future will be published in the future but soon an archive will be up on the video page which link I have yet to figure out where to put it.

Wait, protect those batteries

It will not come to a shock to anybody reading this website that most stores no matter where they sell always rely on up selling to make extra profit. Everyone has their own view points on this but my issue is how far some companies will go just to make that little extra …

When I was out in town shopping around for a new laptop it came to my attention that I will need to buy some new batteries. Seeing I was already in a store, I looked around to see if there was any cheap batteries and to my surprise there was.

Potty Council

As much as everyone else in the United Kingdom, I completely love the HM Government* and this I also love our local councils but sometimes I really do wonder if they make choices based on a few illogical choices made while high while dancing around in a room naked while summoning some dark lord dolphin to random decide what they should do … or something like that.

Basically where I live the main road that is actually used here was damaged with tons of pot holes that I feel sorry for anyone that tries to ride a motorcycle on that road.

After the local council decided to spend a few million of pounds to change what is basically two roads (it was a market place) so that there is less free parking place for some really odd reason when there is a lack of free parking in the town to start with. Anyway after this was approved in the local town, they decided to go ahead with the pot hole repairs.

Inbox (4259)

While I am fully aware there are roughly a few people waiting for me to actually reply to my e-mails, I thought I would finally get around to have look at my e-mails …, my former Ellisfamily.TK e-mails of course.

Just like addresses and phone numbers, e-mail addresses is now often used as the core of people’s communications (some may debate social networks is now the most used online communication for personal usage but same applies) and just like addresses and phone numbers that once you change them there is always someone who will never use the new one or just don’t know about them. In this case, there is 4259 different people, companies or whatever that is not using my new address (likely because I never given it to them).
