Honeygain: Is it worth it?

My earnings & devices
My earnings & devices

Earning money passively is always a good thing and while there are many sources of a passive income most have a high barrier of entry to the point if you are able to buy into that income you likely do not need it anyway.

Honeygain is a passive earner that you can install on your computer or mobile (no virtual machines or datacentres however which is something I will touch on later) with the idea that it uses your Internet connection to download and upload which in exchange they credit your account.

My favourite method of transport

This is the first of many essays about different topics I will be writing about. While I enjoy ranting on Tweaked for your Pleasure, I also do enjoy just writing about stuff and with this I am going to split my time between them.

Transport is one of the most vital things for anyone in our modern world as it gets us to places of employment, education, social hangouts and much more but to myself one of the best reasons for transport is recreation and with this in mind I am going to write about my favourite method of transport – riding a bicycle.

Many years ago beyond a number I do not wish to count, I learned how to ride a bicycle with my oldest sister. I still remember the massive park where I was riding my first blue / yellow coloured scheme bike and I still remember smashing between the two slits on the park’s fence which enforced just how important wearing a helmet is.

lol this, lol that

LOL
“Lol // Ligature” by Edgar Rios is licensed under CC BY-NC 4.0

No one that reads Tweaked for your Pleasure would deny that I am terrible when it comes to proofreading anything I write in Engish but when has saying “lol” to everything come back into fashion and more importantly why are people using them in the age of emojis?

Is it just me that find saying the following examples insanely annoying to the point that I don’t want to carry on a conversation anymore?

“I’m fine lol”

“Yes. I am not feeling well lol”

“I tried to tell you I broken everything lol”

I find using “lol” for everything just comes across as a lazy method in order to try and come across in light or funny tone and personally I find those that have to write like that normally don’t have much to say at all.

I can understand when typing you can not really stress the tone of a chat too much but adding “lol” to every single thing just makes me stop reading the discussion seriously and no bother reading much more into it.

Trust me when I say you do not need to worry about everything you write being taken seriously but whenever you type “lol” people won’t take anything written seriously and nowhere do I want to see “lol” becoming the norm when it comes to punctuation.

Just. Stop. Fucking. Saying. LOL.

You ain’t making up my mind

It will not be of any surprise to people that I enjoy KFC and although I will not go out of my way to get it, should I be passing by it that it is quite often I will pop in to have something. For those that may not know KFC is a fried chicken fast food takeaway and like many other takeaways quite often you will find they have new things on the menu, special deals etc, and like every single other takeaway, these menus are placed right behind the person or next to the till.

Its nothing to do with not enough people

Across the United Kingdom, it is being reported that many vegan restaurants are now closing down due to a lack of business due to a lack of vegans but it isn’t anything to do with that – its to do with cost.

While I myself am not vegan, I find most restaurants and takeaways offers a vegan or vegetarian offers – heck even KFC offers such an option and if you tried out their new burger it is actually quite nice for what it is.

It is for this reason why I believe that beyond the ethical reason some may have for not eating at a place that cooks animals, I find it very hard to understand why people will go to a meat-free location and spend £20 on the same thing they would get for a fiver elsewhere.

Why a “card phone” is surprisingly a good idea.

Image from: Aaru_swartz

When I first heard about Palm creating a “companion” phone that was designed to work with your main phone I could not help but laugh at the idea as after all if you have your phone in your pocket then why do you care about having another phone on you?

Well, I said the same originally but honestly after using the Ytesky Qmart Q1 for quite some time now I am actually for the idea. For anyone that read Tweaked for your Pleasure I think it is safe to assume you likely use your mobile phone in order to send an email, send a few messages on Discord, play a few games and such and not actually use the mobile as a phone “that” much and that is fine, that is just the evolution of mobile phones.
