Making Money Online

Because of my failed attempts at finding a job out in the real world, I had to try and find a way to make money in the mean time while I found a job. So I did a lot of research about different ways of making money online and came a across a few ways. The first is to making a highly successful website that brings in millions of people and brings in millions of dollars (yeah unfortunately I don't have the resources nor the creative juices to do that.) The next was clicking massive amounts of ads for one tenth of a cent for hours and I knew that wasn't going to happen. Another was recruiting and pestering friends to sign up for something they don't want to sign up for... so I'm stuck I know there's millions of ways out there, does anyone know a slightly easy way that doesn't take to much time to set up?

On June 28 is going to be a very hard time. It's going to be the last time Space Shuttle Endeavour will be in flight before retiring forever in southern California. Growing up watching many many launches on TV, it saddens me that I'm not going to see a launch in person.

best buy gift card

Today I was browsing ebay and to my astonishment I noticed people were bidding on best buy gift cards and any other gift cards for that matter and one or two dollars above the gift card's face value! I was very interested into why someone would pay more for a gift card then what it's worth. So that got me thinking, I did a little research on the internet and came up with a few scenarios as to why someone would want to do that. One reason would be to launder money. Best buy gift card don't seem to ever expire so you can get tons of best buy gift cards and no cop would ask you about it.

Anyone else got a reason why someone would want to do this?

With all the movies like War of the Worlds,Independence Day and others, it's not hard to imagine if aliens did show up to earth that they would be hostile. It's funny with agencies like SETI dedicate their entire life to searching for ET. Now do you think it's a good idea to go out and intentionally try to find aliens if there is a chance that they can be hostile? I mean from a science point of view it would be a great discovery of mankind to find intelligence but would it be worthwhile if they came and blew up our planet because the few beeps of radio waves we sent to their homeland was considered a swear word?

To me I feel like it's worth it.

Wow the new Mortal Kombat looks amazing. As an 80's kid I grew up with MK1, MK2 and a little MK3. It seems like after MK3 the franchise went down the crapper as do a lot of sequels to classic games. I love it when these remakes of classic games go back to the basics and give us the graphics and game-play we want. Sometimes pretty 3D graphics isn't always the best, ask any recent Castlevania game.

Anyways, looks like the future for gaming actually looks bright, good-bye to the dark ages of video games.

Time Travel

I was watching a show on History about time travel. It had all the great minds in quantum mechanics like Stephen Hawking (yeah yeah laugh it up) talking about the different way of time traveling. It was funny just 20 years ago it was science fiction and you would be laughed at if you brought it up. Of course movies love the idea of time travel like the obvious ones like back to the future and Donnie darko.

It's awesome how in this day of age it is coming more and more into reality. Stephen hawking talks of two different ways that may make it possible to travel through time. The first way he talks about is going the speed of light. If you were to go the speed of light long enough, your body actually ages slower then a person who is resting on Earth. The other way to time travel is actually going into space and going through a wormhole which can actually send you to the past of future depending on where in the universe you end up.

I don't think in my life time I will see time travel but at the rate of knowledge, I wouldn't be surprised if we to see the first time traveler in the near future.

Library Rules

Remember when you were supposed to be quiet at the library? A time where if you made on peep a scary looking librarian would tell you to shut up? Man I really miss those times.

Now whenever I go to the library to study, I'm bombarded with cellphones going off non-stop, teenagers texting with their ringers going off every time they receive a text. Children crying and their unfit mothers not punishing them. People talking as loud as they want on their cellphone. I mean come on, I go to the library to get some peace and quiet to study for my finals and I'm so distracted I give up and go to McDonald's to study!

The library's really need to enforce their quiet rule and shut these kids up when I'm trying to study or do some work...
