Advertising on News @ YouTube — Natural Disasters / Tragic Events

If you watch this video (post by ABC10 Sacramento / Northern California)

do you see ads / adverts? (I saw clothing from Shein) Who is making money on this advertising? Only YouTube, or does ABC10 also get a cut?

Isn’t it sort of unethical to make money by posting videos of tragedy / death / dying / catastrophic events — isn’t that sensationalism gone sadistic?!?

Dear KB,

You said my last post made you go ‘Ooof.’

I have to say, you questioning whether we use dating apps as a way of coping with our feelings, made me go, ‘Oooof.’ Quickly followed by a ‘Mother fucking Ooof!’

Because, I know you’re right.

What I have become painfully aware of, however, is I try to use the apps as a way to cope with the alone-ness of being single, but it doesn’t actually work. And in fact, it actually turns a not that lonely me into a lonelier me.

So I came across this Tim Ferriss post the other day, where he suggests that instead of making New Year’s resolutions, you conduct a past year in review—a chance to reflect on what you did in 2019 that was positive and led to positive feelings, versus what you did that was negative or led to negative emotions.

How are we to know what our future is going to look like? I mean you can do all the “right” things and still never “make it”, and you see other people do the “right” things and they get everything they ever dreamed of, so whats the difference?

Rant: Blame the Teacher, not the Student

manual, millennial, rant, transmission

What Does Phil Know?

I’ve been brainstorming writing this for a while. I’ve got a lot of friends in the generations above me, and have heard a lot more millennial/young person hate showing up more and more, especially when it comes to car enthusiasts. A lot of that is the nature of the social media machine, but at the same time, y’all gotta take a step back and think about your actions that helped cause this.

One particular item that grinds my gears is the car enthusiasts’ hatred of “kids that don’t know old car stuff”, especially the “millennial anti-theft device” aka the manual transmission. I know I’m a relatively rare exception, but both my wife and I know how to drive a manual transmission, and we’re both millennials.

I’ve seen too many memes and articles about botched car thefts due to a younger person not knowing how to drive manual. But way too…

I guess I’ve always had an issue with my weight but I never really thought about it until reading The F*ck It Diet. Unlike most people, I was not an overweight kid who grew up to be an overweight adult. I actually was disgustingly UNDERweight as a kid. I was 98lbs until I got pregnant with our son; when I had him I tipped the scales at 124. I never thought much of it either.

Most of my childhood I spent under oversized clothes because I hated being so thin. Similar to those that struggled being overweight and they seemed to never be able to shed the weight and keep it off. I was never able to gain the weight.

After I had my son I was not concerned either because I could actually shop…
