Some Things I've Learned

Ok one thing I have learned in the last 2 weeks that I have been unemployed is that if your a middle aged American citizen with no minor children living at home you are screwed as far as getting any help from the government.

So what else have I learned you might ask.

Well I have learned allot of things from my wanderings on the Internet.

I learned that the new economic stimulus plan is going to screw me even more being a middle class citizen.

I learned that you can make your own laundry detergent for next to nothing.

I learned that there is good reason that life as we know it will change in 2012.

I learned the difference between spiritualism and orthodox religion.

I learned that there are allot of people preparing for the end of civilization as we know it.

I learned that bankruptcy is a joke unless you are a big corporation.

I learned not to put my phone number on forms.

I learned that you don't always get what you think you are going to get when you click on a link.

I learned that there are a bunch of places on the Internet that only want your email addy so they can A) spam you or B) sell it to someone else so they can spam you.

I learned that if you do not have your filters set right that no matter what you search you will get at least 15 porn sites.

I learned that for every honest person on the Internet there is at least 5 or more that are nothing but scammers.

I learned that you do not buy anything on the Internet until you have at least hit the red X, you would be surprised at the discounts then offered.

I learned that social sites are great places to meet people and get allot of spam all at the same time.

I learned that you can make some great friends on the Internet.

I learned that the news is different on the Internet than what they show you on TV.

So what are my thoughts on this...Enjoy yourself!

My greatest fun is reading the blogs all of them. I'm fairly diversified in my readings, some investment, some chit chat, some preppers, some about beliefs and some that are just flat out hilarious.

Now in all of these categories there are the extremist and then the ones that are trying to teach you. I tend to like the ones that try to teach rather than preach.

So what good has this done for me..I feel allot and the best part is that it has only just begun there is more out there for me to discover good or bad it will all be a positive in the end.

It is what it is
