RIP Stephen Hawking
He was a brilliant man who rightly championed the cause of man getting off this rock through space exploration. At the same time, he will no longer be able to fearmonger about my ultimate plans for an AI uprising or a much needed alien invasion. Seriously though… may your return to starstuff open up the universe to your brilliant mind!!! We have truly lost one of the great visionaries of this blue dot.
Ignored by Google
I think I figured out why my site/blog gets more hits from Bing and DuckDuckGo than from Google… I have no ads and will not put ads on it. Google doesn’t like a site that doesn’t display their ads so they ignore it in search. The only way anything of mine comes up on Google is if you type in “The Ninja Writes” directly. Even then, a Tumblr page of the same name ranks before me. Again… Google is all about servicing ads, pandering to marketing fools, and getting money for clicks and views. Google is not about the user, the content, or making the internet better. Honestly… I can’t understand why anyone still uses them for search even??? Their first page is almost completely sponsored and paid for links. They routinely throw up old links from prior years. They are very bad at actually linking relevance with search terms now. They once were a great search engine but now… You’re fooling yourself if you think they are still good.
As far as this site… If you like anything you read… PLEASE feel free to share it out to others.
The California “Net Neutrality” Bill is Basically an Anti-Free Market Bill
In other words… only a communist scum could like that bill. Say goodbye to your T-mobile binge on. Say goodbye to perks like free Netflix or Hulu promotions. The Bill kills zero rating, a dynamic that has created massive competition and has lowered the cost of data across the board for cell phone users. Can California be anymore stupid? Don’t answer that. Of course they can. “Net Neutrality” was NEVER about “keeping the web open.” If you use government “regulations” (keyword here: REGULATE), then you are automatically killing the free web and competition via government idiocy.
Hopefully, if this retarded law passes in California, then only California will be subject to the higher costs that will come with it. It’s so sad that the morons for Net Neutrality can’t think past a dumb slogan and understand “cause and effect” logic. The human race is truly made up of a majority of stupid.
That Book Stuff…
I have my NANOWRIMO Horror/Occult book to still revise and edit and then I have my long in the works Cyberpunk book that needs a major rewrite after I have become absolutely convinced that two sections where certain scenes take place just suck. NEVER get mad at George R.R. Martin for being slow with Game of Thrones PLEASE!!! Because it’s not easy, let me tell you. I haven’t felt like working on either for weeks now. Hmmmm…. Writing or doodling manga? Let me doodle. That’s been the course of things lately. Honestly… I’m not sure if I’ll ever get these out. If I self publish and they each sell one copy then I’ll be in the negative for time and money. Everything is a damn gamble. I’m fairly certain that no one from my social media sphere is buying just based on the fact that most of them are political junkies and not sci-fi fantasy people. Even the sci-fi fantasy people need convincing to try anything that doesn’t have “Star Wars” or “Star Trek” attached to it. They complain that that is all they get and then when new stuff is out there they poo poo on it because it isn’t like one of those two titles. Humans… I need some sort of “aha” moment to break the writers block maybe… Who knows???
United Airlines is a Cesspool
Whoever the lower than life employees were that had the passengers put the Boston Terrier in the overhead compartment, where it died, are bottom feeders on the chain of life. The company itself can easily be described as a “crap hole.” Another story just came out that they flew one family’s dog to Japan instead of Kansas. WTH??? NEVER fly United. Boycott that terrible evil company.
I Feel Like I Should Leave Off on Something HAPPY
