I've always thought linked in was pretty stupid. Facebook for dorks I called it. Unfortunately, for better or worse, it's a necessary business evil. Probably a useless evil in all honesty, but nonetheless people deem it useful. Now they have endorsements. So people can "endorse" your skills in your field. For example, if you are a lawyer you can get endorsed for "contract law, negotiation, subrogation, litigation" or if you're an architect your friends can endorse you for skills in which they have no authority to judge your skill level. I am pretty sure it has the opposite effect. To me, the more endorsements you have, the less credibility you have. Keep that in mind.

Kid Rock... the guy is so badass isn't he? Slept with a bunch of superstars, always poppin' bottles at the club, doing drugs in the VIP. But he doesn't seem so badass if you say his name with a sing songy emphasis on the kid. Kinda sounds like a children's band. Kid Rock... mmmm bop mmm bop... dooby doop doop doop Kid Rock.

You don't hear too much about Wonders of the World anymore or Miracles of Science. I guess technology moves so quickly these days that we take for granted the amazing things happening around us. One thing, for example, is the wet wipe. Not because it works really well or is really changing the world. It's just amazing that a few clothlike paper napkins in a crummy plastic case that barely closes can stay moist for months. How do they do it?

I don't know about anyone else, but when I Bcc; someone in an email, I kinda feel bad about it. It's basically an admission that you are doing something shady. If anyone knows of any time where Bcc'ing someone isn't dirty, please let me know. And if it isn't dirty, it's probably only because you emailed the person you are Bcc'ing first letting them know you will be Bcc'ing them in the near future. It makes it easier if you preempt the person by telling them you are about to do something shady. Less shady that way.
