Oh my my my I watched a horrific movie the other night. The acting was good. The movie
was very different. It is a 'horror' movie. It's new being either 2016 or 2017. The name is

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe

If you like horror movies and you don't have a faint heart, watch it. It's bejeeperish.

Beware of overspending this holiday » Post #5

Wed Dec 21, 2016 05:54 in General Talk

I think the thing to beware of is unscrupulous selling ploys and horrific customer support.

I ordered a 'New Nintendo 3D XL' and a game for it through DELL during the special deals days.
I've been an online customer with them for 15 years. For the most part, whatever I order arrives
in two days. Sure enough, I received the game in 2 days. However the game console, I did not
receive. That was OK because I knew there was some delay with it but not like I was in some
sort of hurry. It said I would get it the 16th.

The 16th came and went. I looked and it said I would get it by the 20th. The 20th arrived and
the FEDEX guy had already came and gone but no game console.

Actually the 19h I had sent them an email about it since I did not see any tracking for it. A
customer support sent me an email with a link to software. :lol: Go figure because all I could
do was scratch my head.

So yesterday I hit the online chat. I was number 32 in waiting. No big deal, I needed to clean
up my desk anyway. Finally after 25 minutes, I was number one in the online chat. YAY! After
about ten minutes of chatting with a customer support, he finally figured out what I was wanting
to know. After another ten minutes, he told me that item was out of stock. He gave me a phone
number and told me to call because it was the DELL number for more info.

So I call. I get an answer that the item is out of stock and it will be delivered in March. You do
NOT want to know the rest of our conversation.

Bottomline, I told them I was not born yesterday and I knew exactly wha they were doing. It
was a marketing ploy, more or less, for them to make more sales. IF the item was going out of
stock, they would have known it and not listed the product. IF the item could not be delivered
they would have sent me an email notification. IF the item was going to be delayed for whatever
time period, they would have sent me an email notification and they would have canceled the
order or gave me the option to cancel it.

Instead, what they did was sell those non-existent consoles to their customers knowing they
would NOT receive them before Christmas. They knew it would be months before they would
receive them. They knew it would be a hassle for their customers to cancel the order. They
also knew that many customers would order other products I did ordering a $35

So guess what. I have a 3DS Zelda game and nothing to play it on. I have a 2DS but the new
3DS games do not play on the older consoles.

Talk about fired up! They hung up on me! :evil:
I told them they needed to compensate me some way, an extra credit or something. They
said they'd do that and put me on hold....then hung up on me.

THAT is the problem with ordering online and ESPECIALLY through the holidays.

Several stores are being sued 'Macy's, Kohl's, JCPenny, and at least one other major store
for stating sale prices when the products really were not on sale. What they would do is place
sale prices on the tickets that were actually the original price!

This day and time, it is really difficult to trust stores offline and online. To top it off, the customer
support people will often do simply copy/paste answers to emails and phone calls are even worse.

I believe we need better enforcement of consumer products cost, sales, customer support, and
even shipping. I think all these things have gotten much worse than better.

They sold it at Walmart many years ago. It came in a can like a can of hair spray for men.
They only had something like two colors. Black and something else. I bought it for fun but
did not realize how fun it was really going to be.

:lol: Those are good ones.

Years ago they came out with a mens spray on hair in a can. Since my husband was balding, I bought
a can and I sprayed it on his head for him. It actually looked pretty good. He was strutting around like
a spry rooster. Then he went outside to do some work in the yard. It was a summer day. When he came
in, black was running down his face, neck, every where as if someone had poured a bucket of black paint
over his head. It was hilarious. :lol:

People come out with all kinds of inventions over hundreds of years.

There is more inventions that did NOT make it than those that did make it.

I was thinking of this stupid cooking pot I have. It looks cute. It is tall, slim, and pink in color.
It also includes a tall slim basket. The pot is used to boil primarily, spaghetti, corn on the cob,
tall foods.

The problem is, when the water boils, foods want to rise to the top. I never use it. I call it
'my stupid pot'.

Can you think of products that sounded good or looked good but went by the wayside?

PS. I am thinking 'Hot Air Fryers' will be another useless product

Black Mirror - Anyone watching it? » Post #1

Sun Dec 18, 2016 06:40 in General Talk

This is a netflix original. I started watching it the other day, thought it was new. Some how
I started watching season 3 instead beginning with season 1. It doesn't matter what order
however because each show is different actors and a different tale.

If you are familiar with the old Twilight Zone and how it focused on the mysterious, etc,
'Black Mirror' is kind of like that.

Whoever their writers are for that show, gotta be hard workers and even harder thinkers.
The shows really get everyone thinking.

One of the programs is about people attempting to be happy and perfect and everyone
tries to be nice to everyone so that they will receive a 'like'. Everyone holds their cell
phone out and clicks either a positive or negative when passing someone else or talking
to someone else. What really made this 'social' more interesting is that you could only
buy, shop, mortgage, etc.....all based on your social points. It went to a 5 and if you
fell below a 4.2, you were pretty much a low life. :lol:

Another program, I won't explain it all. I'll just say at the end, the song plays 'Heaven
On Earth' and there is a HUGE building that is full of HUGE computers and millions of
cubby holes. When you die, if you want to live forever (heaven) you can go in a cubby
hole. Or you can die and go no where. Actually what is going in the cubby hole is dna
or some sort of electrical area of your brain. You are really dead but you think you are

If you ever get a chance to watch 'Black Mirror' do. It really gets you thinking about
what could be in the future.

If you're typing like you are typing here, you'll need much more than luck to gain referrals.

Sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a period mark.

That is lesson number 1 for you.

You've only made $35 dollars in 6 or 7 years here. Whatever you do, don't start your sentence with 'I'.
Start your sentence with 'You'.

That is lesson number 2 for you.

You either have a blog or you don't have a blog. 'Trying' a blog isn't going to do squat for you. You're
in Israel. Geesh! Americans love Israel. Well, a whole lot of us do. Use your head. Talk about your
country on your blog and toss in some ClixSense information.

That is lesson number 3 for you.

In all honesty, I think it can be a bit of a tough decision for people, to say the least.

One thing is truly 100% for sure, the person should make his/her wishes known legally and NOT leave
it up to someone else.

I've had to deal with that and it is extremely disheartening. When someone you love dies and you are
the one that has to go look at caskets, make casket decisions, vault decisions, buried placement decisions,
casket spread decisions, funeral arrangements, song arrangement, pastor arrangement, and even so far
as to contact friends and relatives NOT to mention writing up an Obituary. I have had to do all that and
more. THAT can really really take a toll on you. What I found myself doing at every decision I made, is
asking myself 'what would he want?'. That made it even more depressing.

So I strongly stress that no matter how old you are, you see to it as best you can, that what you wish
and want, be legally implemented OR at the very least, let your loved ones know your REAL wishes.

Also people have their religious beliefs and do not believe in cremation or perhaps vice versa or some
other ways. You know, the American Indian natives way back in the day, some had the rituals to bury
their deceased sitting up....primarily chiefs in some tribes.

I think that is about all I have to say about this insane topic.

Checklist Bonus » Post #2

Sat Dec 17, 2016 07:58 in General Talk

Well yes.

What I always suggest if members are interested in completing the daily bonus, is to first
do what is simple to do:

-View Ads
-View Forum
-View ClixGrid

Those three things are always there for everyone to do.

The next thing to do is complete

-2 Offers OR 2 Tasks

If the member looks through the offers, he/she will eventually locate the best offers to look through daily.
Usually for most members, 2 offers can readily be located to complete. They might only be worth a cent
or two but it will make for completing the checklist. After that, the member can move forward to complete
tasks, more offers, and surveys as his/her time allows.

Kind of funny you mention adoption like that.

Just last night I was doing some searches about adoption of Aleppo orphans.

A lot of places have very strict rules for adoption and age of those considering adoption is a factor.

Plane Crashes » Post #6

Fri Dec 16, 2016 07:56 in General Talk

@perfectshops that's interesting about the development of planes that could break away
the passenger area and parachute the people down safely. It makes sense and I suspect
they will be able to do that. I can see how that might not work in all cases but it probably
would in most.

I do hear of plane crashes often. Most seem to be private planes such as crop dusters,
family planes, small commercial planes.

The scariest thing about jets crashing is the fact many people are onboard.....hundreds
loose their life when they crash. For the people on the plane, it has to be a very scary
event when you know you are going down and there is nothing you can do about it.

and I could have had a bit more slots for coconut, etc. :roll:
