Every night’s the right night to sacrifice some free time and do that thing you’ve been dying to for months.

The intricate craftsmanship on Dj Shadow’s “Endtroducing…” blew me away, out of the water!

The 1996 instrumental hip hop album was recorded entirely with samples,

and for me personally has become a symbol of hard work, and attention to detail.

Why am I writing about this? Because I care for some reason.

 

He’s helped me clean my room, more times than he will ever know. (about three times)

 

School has been alright, I’m a few weeks in, only one class.

I’m just, much more interested in everything else in the world.

I would rather look at memes on the internet than do homework,

THOSE IMAGES WITH TEXT

Memes interest me, very much

To me, Memes are a convenient way to trivialize popular attitudes and ideas.

Have you ever found yourself wondering everyone else does that too???

Enjoying pop culture is important to me, It’s one of the few things I regularly understand.

I’ve learned a lot about myself by observing the people around me, it’s convinced me even more that it’s easier to judge others than it is to judge myself.

Happy hump day

 

 

I recently commissioned 100 true short stories, specifically embarrassing stories.

Only 41 stories were turned in by the end of the alloted time, and it only cost me about 2 dollars.

I did this with Amazon Mechanical Turk.

I’m going to leave plenty of details out about this amazing site, this should not be considered any sort of guide.

Mechanical Turk allows requesters to commission simple tasks known as HITs or Human Intelligence Tasks

for as little as a penny a piece.

It also allows you to work on these HITs… but I’m mainly talking about the Requester side of things now.

To me this sounded like a cheap virtual army of college students and stay at home moms,

and I have endless faith in the two.

So to test the waters I commissioned 100 embarrassing stories for 4 cents a piece.

Some of the stories were worthless…

“My most embarssing story is once during my collage days, my professor distributes results
by calling my name along with my mark and also question me to explain reason
for getting such low marks.. its really awkward”

Really? 

Some, actually made me laugh out loud.

“In 12th grade I had a date with the captain of the cheerleading team. Her name was Kelli and I had liked her since 9th grade. Believe it or not, she asked me to the movies, though I think she considered me only a friend (story of my life). To make a long story short, I wrecked my sister’s car while on the date. Neither one of us was hurt but I sure was embarrassed. I heard she went to a party after I took her home.”

Wow, I’m sorry man, I don’t know if I would ever come back from that.

 

 

 

Fortunately, I can choose to reject submissions that don’t even bother to match the criteria.

That doesn’t stop me from being a bit too lenient sometimes.

Really i’ll accept anything that meets the minimum requirements, after all it’s only 4 cents,

and I get a little excited anytime I get a new submission.

I’m excited to see what I can do with this, It’s amazing what has already been done,

This is only my first Amazon Mechanical Turk project, I’ve got 11 hours left on my next.

Maybe I can find a way to make the big bucks like the guy who commissioned pictures of sheep for a penny,

then went on to sell some of them for as much as $20.

Well, thanks for reading, have a nice day.

Romney opposes the use of mandatory limits on greenhouse gas emissions to deal with global warming.[313] Romney has stated that he believes climate change is occurring, but that he does not know how much of it is caused by human activity. (from the Wikipedia article for “Mitt Romney”)

I didn’t really know either

So, I used google and…

about 1 minute later I saw

“Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and scientists are more than 90% certain that it is primarily caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation.[3][4][5][6] These findings are recognized by the national science academies of all major industrialized nations.[7][A]” (from the Wikipedia article for “Global Warming”)

Anyway, I like earth

So I hope he loses

Have a nice day everyone.
