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.

There is one thing I have always found somewhat confusing in our modern age â€“ dealing with pregnant women. while I am sure that not everyone that is pregnant is a bitch fuelled by ego, I have just seen that lately pregnant women are giving more and more simply because they are pregnant and I am not talking about the benefit system here.
So the other day I was going to ASDA in my local town where I saw three set of parking. The first set of parking was the disabled parking which was near the ATM which is still pretty far to walk. If we go on the logic that most people who are medically disabled and hold a blue badge needs it because something medically has happened to them such as dodgy generics or what not but the important thing is it did not happen by their own free will.

The Internet is currently a forever changing network and everyday it is getting more involved in our lives. While people may debate if this is a good or bad thing one problem that is facing this is wireless Internet connections. There is little reason not to agree that our current mobile network is crap and compared to most of the world just looks like the UK throw something up overnight.
Originally major phone networks such as o2 offered mobile Internet connections on an unlimited package as, back then, it was next to impossible to actually use the Internet connection in any way that would be harmful to the mobile network. This changed however when smart phones started to become more common and started using mobile internet for far more than just e-mail and the odd web browsing. Smart phones started to allow people to view the Internet in mostly the same way as they are used to at home. (more…)
I am sure that most people on Tweaked for your Pleasure have played a role-playing game but have you ever stopped to think what life would actually be like if we actually lived in a RPG style game. Well, I did today and this is what I came up with…
In the morning you would wake up and then decide what clothes you want to wear. There would be a few factors to decide would not really be much about fashion as no one in this world would be more important than you in any way shape or form but also you would think how much defense and other stats it would give you. Once you have decided you would go downstairs. (more…)
Life throws at us many things such as problems, puzzles and many other things that we have to learn to deal with. There are many things in life that needs a great amount of logic to work out or alot of knowledge however logic and knowledge isn’t always enough. I have heard many times from people – “how do I keep my cool when I have to make choices” and this is my answer – I think like a child.
You may be thinking what the fuck but it has always worked for me. Children isn’t bothered by things such as politics, money and much more and when you ain’t bothered by something, the choices you make are no longer fueled by one gains, ones pride. When people grow up then their eyes are opened up to politics, war, terrorists, money and whatever else is out there. The world in a child’s ear that the world is pure, perfect and out there to explore.When someone who has “grown up” makes a choice, it is more often then not, a choice that will only be something that they gain something out of it. Could be a money gain, knowledge gain or an emotional gain but regardless of what they gain, it is still for themselves. For a child, very rarely do they see something for their own gain. I ain’t talking like a child wanting a new toy or something, I am talking about the actual world. (more…)
