UBER Assessed (Posted on 29 June 2014)

Now the shit stirs!!!
-------------------------------
Uber Technologies Inc is known as Everyone’s Private Driver. Uber operates an on-demand car service used all over the world. With the touch of a button from your phone, you can experience your own private driver.

Working as an Uber driver is one of the buzziest careers in America. With uberX, essentially anyone with a car can sign up to be a driver. And Uber makes it pretty easy to do. The first step is to head on over tothis website. If you’re at least 21 years old, have a license, personal auto insurance, and a four-door car in good condition, you can sign up to be a driver. The next step is passing Uber’s background check. You’ll need to provide the company with standard information like your address, driver’s license number, and social security number. If you pass the background test, Uber requires you to take an online training course that covers standard operating procedures, how to get 5 stars, and what not to do. Upon completi…

Top Tourist Scams

As the world gets to be more mobile with travel becoming more and more affordable, we need to be careful of the usual modus operandi by street smart gangs.

The “Found” Ring: An innocent-looking person picks up a ring on the ground in front of you and asks if you dropped it. When you say no, the person examines the ring more closely, then shows you a mark “proving” that it’s pure gold. He offers to sell it to you for a good price — which is several times more than he paid for it before dropping it on the sidewalk.

The “Friendship” Bracelet: A vendor approaches you and aggressively asks if you’ll help him with a “demonstration.” He proceeds to make a friendship bracelet right on your arm. When finished, he asks you to pay a premium for the bracelet he created just for you. And, since you can’t easily take it off on the spot, you feel obliged to pay up. (These sorts of distractions by “salesmen” can also function as a smokescreen for theft — an accomplice is picking your pocket …

"Dear IT Support" from a wife ...

Best thing going viral on FB now: 




Dear IT Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a slow down in the overall performance, particularly in the flower, gifts and jewellery applications that had operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 un-installed many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, but installed undesirable programs such as Formula One 5.0, NBA 3.0 and World Cup 2.0.

And now Conversation 8.0 no longer runs and House Cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?

Signed,
Desperate Housewife

Dear Desperate Housewife,

First keep in mind: Boyfriend 5.0 is an entertainment package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

Try entering the command C:\ I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME and download Tears 6.2 to install Guilt 3.0 

If all works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applicat…

The One & Only Don Rickles

The sudden passing of Robin Williams hit us all hard. Hence it was wonderful to see this massive tribute event for Don Rickles, easily one of my all time favourite stand up comedians. His act is basically as an insult comic, he does not discriminate, he laughs at all and sundry. Words can be cruel but Don does it so well. I am so glad we get to see this as he is getting very very old but the mind is still alert as ever. The flashbacks were priceless. Much love ...

Nanu Nanu ....

with his biggest idol and influence, Jonathan Winters ..

Confessions Of A Carnivore ...

It is fashionable to be a vegan. But how can some things taste so good for it to be wrong. Less than 30% of planted stuff are for human consumption globally. The rest is to feed the animals or fatten them for eventual food on table. If we stop eating meat, does that mean we have enough crops to feed the world? As utopian as that sounds, then we will be left with an ever exponentially growth in farm animals - we will have a different problem then. Do we castrate them then ... as if that was natural?

I guess I will still be a carnivore but I would support measures to have more decent and hospitable farming and culling of animals. I leave you with this thought ...

If we have to kill each and every animal for whatever that we choose to eat ... be it tonight, tomorrow, next week ...  for lunch or dinner ... IF we want steak we have to kill the cow ourselves, if we want chicken we have to do the same ...  or lamb or pig or piglet ... IF we have to act that way (and we really do, indirectly), …

Good Practical Tips When Visiting Paris

From queuing for hours for the Eiffel Tower to overdosing on 12 per cent beer, here are the things to avoid in the French capital.
1. Going to the Champs-Élysées Beloved by hordes of prattling foreign teenagers, Parisian are careful to avoid this thoroughfare - and with good reason. Full of international chains and overpriced restaurants selling dreadful food, as well as car show rooms and the Paris headquarters of Iran Air, it is a cursed day that one finds themselves wandering in these Elysian Fields. If you have the money, or want to pretend you do, you would be far better off heading to the other two streets that make up the “Triangle d’Or” – the Golden Triangle – Avenue Montaigne and Ave George V, to the south of the Champs. Here you will find shamelessly shiny outlets of the best Parisian fashion houses – Hermes, Chanel and Louis Vuitton, to name but a few – all manned by even brassier security guards. Or for shops where you might actually be able to afford something, head east in…
