Welcome to a new series called Trafalgar Rant, where I can run a few random thoughts off of the top of my head without worrying too much about structure or delivering a central worthwhile message. Fret not however, for what it lacks in structure it'll make up for in a lack of structure. See? It's working wonders already.
I often like to think of myself as being too smart to be susceptible to the effects of advertisement. I like to imagine that it only works on the simple and daft folk who are easily impressionable, while brilliant rational people capable of exercising exceptional restraint, such as myself, are impervious from such distractions.
Except knowing that everyone else likely shares this exact belief forces me to accept the fact that I'm probably just as much of a sucker for advertisement as the next guy who's dumb enough to th
What are you waiting for today? Is your vehicle in the shop? Is the work day nearly finished? Are these people in front of you jamming up traffic because they don't know how to drive? Is the microwave taking too damn long? Is your phone dead and you'll get to reading this later after waiting for it to charge? Are you waiting for this stream of questions to be over?
People who trade crypto might know what these colors could be representing today. I'm one of those maniacs, so of course I'm waiting for my candles to light.
That's not what that image is though and that's not all I'm waiting for. It's this piece of gum I'm chewing. I can't wait until i
Today I went to a sports day! Oh, don't fret it wasn't for me. Instead it was for the little banana that is my daughter.
A wondrous experience you would think? Sun shining down, races to mentally gamble on, bit of daddy/child bonding and all that. And yes, it would have been entirely fabulous if not for an event which left me rather bemused.
So there I was, the first race is ready to start. Daughter at the start line, her opponents look fierce. Well, as fierce as five year olds can. Which is about as fierce as slightly moist paper. The cry goes out...
It's on!! It's on like King Kong!!
Like any proud father of the modern generation I whipped out m
Are you tempted to ride the bubble? Are you made of leather and steel? Are you ok with losing money? Then read on!
Bubbles bubbles nothing but troubles you often heard Grandma say. Well what did she know? Back in the box with you Grandma!
What is a bubble when we talk about crypto? A crypto bubble is when the price of a coin or coins is massively on the rise. You may have noticed that there is currently a massive alt coin bubble led in chief by The Arch Felon, Bitcoin. Can nothing stop the mighty bitcoin?
Well yes. It is a rare thing that can keep on rising forever and eventually there will be a...
No, not the
I'm single, available, and only looking out for female cryptoheads.
FML, I'm gonna be forever alone.
Being a good child of the 70s, I have seen every installment of the Alien franchise.
Although I was too young to see the original Alien in the theater, I remember watching it repeatedly on Beta video tape when I was a kid. This was odd for a couple of reasons. First, it was rated
R and I was only 10 years old when I watched it. (This was not the norm in my house so I must have snuck it out of my step father's cabinet). Second, I consider it a horror movie set in space... and I generally do not care for scary movies. When I watch a movie, I become immersed in it. I get very emotionally involved. Because of this, I think horror movies are unpleasant... plus I'm a huge baby.
Steemit is a society, made up of communities. Every individual has their own strengths, weaknesses and objectives. Over time, many Steemians have settled into niche roles, doing what they're best at, what they love, or what reaps them the most rewards. If you're new to Steemit, you might want to experiment with different activities before deciding what works best for you.
Here is a list of some of the most common types of Steemians...
Steemit is a young, innovative platform so it has attracted a lot of interest from the techie community. The STEEM blockchain is
Open Source, so anyone with enough ingenuity can build applications relating to it, or analyse the data from it. Over time, more and more third party app
Today I present my new creation to you guys - an advertisement for the
funny tag - one of the tags (or categories, communities whatever you want) that are always booming on ANY site.
And it is booming even on Steemit, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't promote it more!
No newspaper ads about couples private affairs, where they vacationed and the like before the internet came to bloom.
Why should we post everything like airing dirty laundry now-a-days.
The problem is not evident on Steemit and this guy has no clue what facebook looks like, again, now-a-days.
I am just biding my time for the next nine weeks while the hour glass (power-down) runs out. When the flags stop, I will hold my Steem.
My early posts did nothing but give away my voting power to minnows. see #takemyvotes. I made nothing on posts and nothing on the voting. I would spend 8 hours respondi
I work in the Financial district of Glasgow. To any of you chaps in a proper large City you would find the naming of this hilarious as it comprises of about three blocks and the buildings are about 100 metres tall at their highest. Compared to London, where I did get lost in the docklands or New York where you can live in almost perpetual shade its very small and dinky.
We do have character
Oh yes. Bags and bags of the stuff. Trying to picture a denizen of Glasgow in your head? Picture a honking goose. There.
I was in the Telenor shop in a shopping center in Pécs, Hungary.
I was waiting for my wife (who is Hungarian) to do her business in the shop, and I saw this:
It is easy to recognize that it is a picture of @andrarchy. Compare to his signature picture:
Yes, he did clean up in the picture I saw, but it is obviously him, after a haircut!
Steemit.com was right to hire him for marketing!
It's already morning. After a long night without sleep, I was thrilled to be able to witness at least one more sunrise.
I've been stuck inside this goddamn thing for at least seven hours. I'm not really sure of the time because my arms won't move and I can't see my watch. The only thing I can move without a struggle is my face. Whatever it is trying to eat me, we breathe the same air.
Maybe my head is just too big to fit. Or maybe she's just saving the best part for later. I mean, who doesn't like good head? For once though, I'm glad she didn't swallow.
Regardless, I think I'll be here fo
While waiting for some recent Bitcoin transactions, I had plenty of time to think. After a while, I decided to get a few of the baby rabbits and a baby turtle and take the photo to make this meme with. I hope that you can enjoy it!
