This shirt has been getting a lot of attention for us.

You can see its an image of a very large inflatable castle similar to what gets put up at traveling fairs and birthday parties.

There are several people in the castle trying to defend it against the attacking bows and arrows.

The castle is deflating due to the punctures and it isn’t looking good for the occupants.

We hope you like the shirt, you can click on the image to see more pictures.

Corporate Hush Hush

Dec 13th, 2009 | Filed under Interesting, Opinions and Perspectives, Rants, Work

I have been spending quite a bit of time on social bookmarking websites recently.

One of the sites I was using rhymes with Bigg, I wont post the actual name here because I do not wish for me to Ban my website from theirs.

Bigg is a websites where you submit links and other with similar interests are able to view them.

I was doing fairly well driving traffic to my main website and found it quite interesting to read all the important news stories as they broke.

I found I drove the most comments to my website by submitting comments about the articles. Whether people agreed or not, they did tend to click to view my profile, and then this website.

I found when I was on there quite a lot of corporate dis-information, and people were eating it up.

There were also quite a few shabby stories with very little facts but people tended to feel this justified their own opinions about things and voted them up.

I ended up becoming quite outspoken about the environment and got a lot of people that would pay attention to my posts. After a while for some reason even though I was only having five or so people that had read my comment so far, I was being voted down 15 to 20 times in a matter of minutes.

With the system of one vote per user per day, this is impossible.

These were negative votes that were being put on me by the bookmarking site.

My comments were pretty well researched, and I have been to places that are currently being destroyed by large corporations and had quite a bit to say. So even though I was being voted down. The people that followed me were voting me back up.

A lot of the companies that we were fighting against are actually advertisers on the website, and I guess Bigg being a commercial site, they felt I was going against their interests, and banned me, also deleting all my posts and comments for the entire site. Even though I often had the top Comment on some very popular articles.

It is sad that a large group of us was trying to point out the damage being done by large corporations to places like Sumatra, with the clear cutting and burring, this of course kills a lot of animals and causes large health problems for the millions of humans that live there. There are also cases of actual murder.

Anyhow I wont talk about it too much, I don’t live that far away from where this corporation has its headquarters and they are extremely well funded.

However I find it very sad about this corporate hush hush. These people are literally getting away with murder, and turning rain forests into deserts, not to mention the implications towards global warming, if carbon actually causes global warming. I am sure if Bigg dropped their advertising someone else would pick up the slack eventually. I guess they feel no responsibility to the world even though they are getting large enough to help shape it.

I hope one day I will be in a position to help the world like they are, I would use my power for the good of all, instead of just the good of my already enormous bank account.

Don’t Juggle Chainsaws – Funny Monkey Shirt

Don't Juggle Chainsaws - Funny Monkey Shirt

Don't Juggle Chainsaws - Funny Monkey Shirt - Click Image $17.99

This shirt has been very popular for us recently.

This comes from the same artists that do the I’m a slow learner t-shirt, it was actually done before the slow learner shirt.

We will probably be putting in a special order for more of this shirt soon if the current interest in it continues, though we still have a few months supply in stock.

As you can see it features a sad little monkey that was attempting to juggle chainsaws and had an accident.

The advice is of course sound, juggling chainsaws is a very bad idea and very dangerous.

We hope you enjoy the shirt. Clicking on the image will lead you to more images of it.

The Man Who Sold The World Lyrics – Videos Bowie, Nirvana

Dec 4th, 2009 | Filed under Music, Nirvana, Song Lyrics

We passed upon the stair
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasn’t there
He said I was his friend
Which came as a surprise
I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone
A long long time ago

Oh no, not me
We never lost control
You’re face to face
With The Man Who Sold The World

I laughed and shook his hand
And made my way back home
I searched for form and land
For years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazeless stare
At all the millions here
I must have died alone (Alt: I must have died along)
A long, long time ago

[x2]
Who knows?
Not me
We never lost control
You’re face to face
With the Man who Sold the World

Here is the Video from Nirvana’s Unplugged Session on MTV

Here is David Bowie Singing the Song, He wrote it.

Herding Thoery – Do People Herd ?

Dec 2nd, 2009 | Filed under Opinions and Perspectives

A long time ago someone asked me if I had ever heard of the hearding theory

I said I hadent and asked him what it was about, and he said. “People are like a Herd and follow one another”

Well at first I said No I dont really think so, but I kept thinking about it a bit and now say it is fairly true.

It doesn’t mean that everyone follows each other, just like a herd of cattle or horses, or sometimes even like lemmings . One follows a leader usualy.

You can apply that to social situations, work, school and especialy any uniformed positions.

Lets face it its easier to follow than break away and have no one follow you. In the work world sometimes breaking away just doesnt offer the money needed to keep yourself with food and shelter. So it pays to follow at least for a while.

I used to play quite a few online games like Everquest, Wow, City of Heroes, Conan, Lord of the Rings, and Guildwars. These are games you playover the internet with people from all over the world. You usualy have missions, sometimes very long ones, that you team up to try and conquer together. Teams used to get as large as 70 people at a time with Everquest. Missions were mostly led by one. During normal gameplay people would just join anyones group, because they didnt want to lead. It was too much effort even though they might be better at it.

I just looked this up on Wikipedia, I had to see if it was on there or not, and it is, here is their definition:

“Herd behavior describes how individuals in a group can act together without planned direction. The term pertains to the behavior of animals in herds, flocks, and schools, and to human conduct during activities such as stock market bubbles and crashes, street demonstrations, sporting events, religious gatherings, episodes of mob violence and even everyday decision making, judgment and opinion forming.”

Lets face it although we have great brain power, we are often too lazy to excersize it, this can sometimes, or often, lead to group stupidity where people think agreeing with the herd means they must be right and dont look at things from outside the box they have put themselves in.
