I just heard of Groupon the other day. Do you use it? Do you know those who do? Is it full of win? What is google going to do with it?

Penetrate the local ad markets better than their stupid AdSense stuff does now since AdSense is fucking expensive.

The fact that this idea was in a bidding war and could be bought for 5bil plus is amazing to me. Groupon has reps in every district and now in varying countries. The reps still cold call people like those stupid Pizza Hut ad people do in the junk mail you get. They have like 2500 employees most of which are just salespeople. It's amazing that the company who produces all those junk mail ads (Valassis, formerly Advo) didn't think of this first. They already had the fucking infrastructure and have been around doing the exact same thing Groupon does without a real website for 50 years. There will be people jumping out of the Valassis buildings if this goes for the expected price.

Groupon is expected to do 1.5bil in revenue next year. With Google powering it they are likely to make back whatever they buy it out for in the next 3-5 years. They'll tie it in with those new dynamic square ads you see on blog sites and make a fortune.

Groupon is fucking great. I mainly use it to try out new restaurants on the cheap.

This is kind of evidence that the best thing that could have happened to Groupon was it was bought out at its height of popularity. After 5-7 years of businesses using Groupon and seeing no return customers and only surges of popularity when they were barely making the money back to pay for overhead and the cost of doing business with Groupon I think it would have failed. Google will tweak it to be a better product for the long run.

Actually, yes, this is probably the answer. Twitching mostly stems from vitamin deficiencies and/or dehydration so drinking plenty of water should help.

If it's still twitching, most times this is caused by eye strain or dryness. Nutritional imbalances that cause twitching are not usually confined to the eye lid. Try eye drops, get your prescription checked if you wear glasses or contacts, and GET OFF of the fucking computer. ;)

So today I went necklace shopping with a friend at all the jewelery stores in town to find a nice one for my girlfriend and I's first anniversary. We end up at the last one and there is this set of an amethyst necklace and amethyst ring which was 200$. We both feel great about it, so I bought it feeling great about it and brought it home and showed it to my mom. So she liked the necklace, but the ring she really didn't like much, kinda cause of the price although the fact that I could get a nice hand crafted dealio from a local vendor. So now I am stuck on what to do, my friend says my girlfriend will love it which I think she will, although now I am all worried that it could turn out bad!

SR, I think it's super adorable that you want to get her jewelry. And I see no problem with getting a ring that doesn't signify some greater meaning (just, you know, don't get down on one knee to give it to her).

Also, I'm going on the assumption here that your girlfriend isn't the picky sort, and has taste comparable to you. You can always run it by one of her friends if you're in doubt. I tend to prefer ring settings that are a little cleaner and less ornate, but it's a personal thing.

(12-15) 03:06 PST Chicago (AP) --

Film critic Roger Ebert's new movie review television show has been cleared to air in 192 markets across the United States and worldwide on the Armed Forces Network.

A post on Ebert's Twitter feed this week says "Roger Ebert Presents At the Movies" will debut Jan. 21. The Armed Forces Network broadcasts to more than 1,000 outlets in more than 175 countries, U.S. territories and aboard U.S. Navy ships.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning Chicago Sun-Times critic lost his ability to speak and eat after cancer surgeries.

Ebert announced in September he would return to television using his computer voice on a special show segment called "Roger's Office." The half-hour review program will air weekly. It will feature thumbs up and thumbs down reviews made famous with his late partner Gene Siskel.

some guy wrote this on a complaint message board


My daugher happens to be one of hundreds of unfortunate girls who thought Backroom Casting Couch was a legimate company. Instead they use the girls to satisfy their own sexual desires with no intention of making them rich or famous. This site and the "men" - I use that term loosely - should not be allowed to use the girls in this way. You can see on many of these girls faces that they have no idea they are about to be used, they think this is a way to fame and fortune. Women are taught to be pleasant and act as caretakers/givers to everyone else in their lives. We are the peacemakers, the homemakers, the mothers and caregivers of the world. This site and these men know this and take advantage. They must hate women a whole lot. Some of those girls look so innocent I cannot believe anyone with a conscience would ever consider surprising the girls with requesting sexual acts. This site needs to be shut down and the guys who run it should be charged, but I am told they have all the "legal" bases covered. So sad. It makes me sick and sad. What humans do to each other...

I hung out with Yoni and Josiah from Why? tonight (my brother's girlfriend has been friends with them since they were little kids.) I told them how this board loves them (well mainly pot and hannah) but quite a few people here like them if I recall correctly (possibly not.) Unfortunately there won't be new album anytime soon. I told Yoni that I think Alopecia is their best album and he said, "I agree, it's my favorite too." I wouldn't say they're on hiatus, just taking a short break. Last time I saw them was at pitchfork with probably a couple thousand people watching them, so it's cool to see them now at a bar down the street during the holidays.

The National is the complete opposite. They act like they completely forgot where they're from (3/5th's of them anyway, including the frontman.)

i second. grabbed this for a xmas present and the sound is outstanding, especially for $100(plus no tax and free shipping through amazon). looks like it is up $15 from pre-xmas prices on there.

it's also portable thanks to built in rechargeable battery, although there is some performance loss once you unplug it to conserve that battery power.

Grading practice SAT essays is pretty much the most hilarious and simultaneously worst thing ever.

"For instance if a criminal is so used to living in prison where he has a place to sleep and food every day, has to go out into the real world but doesn't know how to get money. Most likely that person will head back to jail so that person can have that stability."

You'd be amazed at how many don't have any other option. It's pretty sad.

I agree completely. I used to grade the real SAT essays and it was really depressing. It amazed me how kids would throw out "facts" like Einstein "discovering" electricity and even scarier, Iraqis being responsible for 9/11 and "starting the war." You would think people would tend to shy away from topics about which they know nothing...but apparently not.

However, if I remember correctly, the writing portion of the SAT is graded based on the student's command of the English language and ability to string together a coherent group of sentences, not a mastery of fact. Isn't it true that a student can use a completely bogus fact as evidence in his/her argument, and still receive a perfect score, as long as the writing is clear, grammatically accurate, and well argued?

Yes. I've read so many factually incorrect essays that are just painful to get through, and I can't say anything. I read a really lovely essay today about how the Kennedy caused the depression in the 30s because he tried to make the government control all businesses.

Went to a coworker's wedding last night. Easily the creepiest part of the ceremony was when the pastor said, "Every time you look at your bride, I want you to imagine her with a bow on her head and a tag that says, 'To Garth; Love, God." My fiancee was with me, and we were able to immediately rule that out as part of our own ceremony.

Seconded. I guess that's what made it even more painful for me. Although there is generally a correlation between mastery of language and knowledge of basic facts humans should know. But not always...

I too, am a KCAL9 weather-person aficionado. Evelyn is hot, but she’s no Jackie Johnson. Jackie is sweet and innocent girl next-door turned weather girl. Evelyn is too-hot-for-San-Francisco imported to LA girl. She stumbles over her words and tries too hard to be sweet. Regardless, because of them and their Forever-21 wardrobes, KCAL 9 is number one in the Playa household for 10 o’clock news.

REVIEW: Timothy Ferris - 'The Four Hour Body' - NY Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/07/books/07book.html?src=fbmain)


“I was enjoying French food and a bottle of Bordeaux with a 25-year-old female yoga instructor new to San Francisco, fresh from the Midwest." This poor woman lets slip that she’s unable to have an orgasm. Mr. Ferriss, as any humanitarian would, makes it a point to fix this problem for her. “I was able to facilitate orgasms,” he writes, “in every woman who acted as a test subject.”

Hilarious NY Times review of a ridiculous self-help book.
