Sometimes I can’t sleep…these are my thoughts

// Advertisements \\

Ummm…kudos to the advertisement/marketing firms for turning the internet into one giant ouija board!

Honestly, I don’t know what kind of Jedi Mind Trick they’re using but jeez! I’m pretty sure 99.9% of the time I didn’t click on that pop-up ad. Yet somehow, mysteriously, my screen shifts just enough so that when I click the X to exit out of the ad, it clicks on the ad. That is, if I can actually find the X. You know what I’m talking about. The ads will have you playing a game of I SPY where you have to search high and low just to find the damn X to remove it. TBH, it almost feels like your computer has a virus. Or it feels like your a character in an M. Night Shyamalan horror film! Every time I really can’t find the X I hear this…

Well played advertisement/marketing firms… well played!!!

I know a simple solution would be Adblock, but the truth is sometimes I like the advertisements… just not a overload or a constant influx of them.

// Los Angeles Bid for Hosting the 2024 Olympics \\

That would be incredible! Here’s an olympics sports that should consider…
Suing… for the most ridiculous things. It seems to be one of the most popular games here in America

// Car Technology \\

After reading about Google’s self-driving cars and how it doesn’t need windshield wipers, it got me thinking. Cars have advanced so much in some areas but others not so much. Why is that? We have all the radio stations we want, but what good is that if the car spends half the time in the shop getting repaired? They provide us with great horsepower… but we still get a flat tire from a tiny nail. Where is the push/start button for quickly changing a tire? At this point you would think rubber tires can handle literally anything. Instead of windshield wipers, they could invent a glass shield that automatically clears the rain so it doesn’t smear or smudge. While I love the idea of a self drive car (actually I’m obsessed and can’t wait) We should probably work on the current cars that people drive.

There are $90,000 cars but if it crushes like a soda can in an accident… 

Tires = as durable as everlasting gobstoppers
Car Door = Should function like a sliding glass door
Gas = Possibly use air instead

I dunno where I’m going with this, but the point is maybe we should just work on fixing the basics.

Until next time…
