It’s Always Your Fault


Always remember that everything is always your fault, always.

Realize this and realize you have the power to fix problems instead of look for people or things to blame.

When realize that it’s always your fault you will possess an unfair advantage over 99.99% of the rest of the population of the world.


… Because you will use your energy to solve problems instead of wasting it on people and or things to blame.

How To Find Specific Types Of Twitter Users


I like to use Twitter, but to be honest it isn’t entirely productive.

The way I see it, most people are on twitter because they are goofing off.

Get Alexa and PageRank Data In Your Browser

Today I used something that I believe to be pretty much "priceless" that I have used almost daily for 3 years.

It's a simple addon for the web browser, Firefox.
