Harry-Potter-Facebook-Poke

First of all, let me enlighten you to the fact that I’ve only ever used this function like once or twice… all of which were poke-backs.

Also, it has been a loooong time since I’ve written an article in the “My Thoughts On” series. But anyway… on to the Poking!

NEVER have I encountered such a useless function on any social networking website.

I mean, what the hell does it even do? Is it supposed to emulate a real-life poke? Because believe you me, it doesn’t resemble that in the slightest. (more…)


duck_face example

Ah, we all knew this would eventually crop up some time or another eh?

*Evil laughter*

This is like the perfect rant practically begging to happen, and don’t you know it…

2013 was undoubtedly the year of the selfie.

Don’t worry, I haven’t got an issue with that.

But what creeps me out is the extra-bright selfie.

You know… the light intensive photos.

demons_run_by_falconflight13-d4hj85w

No humour, no punchline. Just pure bullshit. Views make me feel warm and fuzzy inside so just go ahead and read it.

(Don’t judge me)

Demons run. Demons run when a good man goes to war.

Pat yourself on the back if you know where the title is from. Slap yourself if you don’t. (Comment if you know where I stole the title from)

What with people still on-about their resolutions for 2014… here’s a likkle pep talk/motivational speech sorta thing. It’s more for myself and fellow bloggers than for the general public to read. But don’t stop reading now. Trust me, there’s no turning back… (more…)


2014 fb syd

First of all, what did y’all think of the “Xmas 2013 special” on my blog?

What?

What do you mean you haven’t read it?

Ah, well there wasn’t an Xmas special you see. That’s probably why… (more…)


silence

So some (none) of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for about 2 weeks. Sure I miss the occasional weekly post… But for two darn weeks I went silent.

I went quiet quiet. not even a tweet from either @EssWhyDeeBlog or @EssWhyTech

Sure, It isn’t a huge deal. But what if there was a deeper meaning to the silence?

Just think… (more…)

I’ve tuned down the humour for this article. It’s genuinely something to ponder about.

“What doesn’t kill you, make you stronger” is a phrase that has always been rather popular with the unwashed masses. Heck, It’s a pretty darn good saying an’ all, don’t-cha think? …. Don’t-chaaa?

Commonly used to raise one’s spirit, usually a lie told to yourself to make you feel like you are stronger than you actually are.

Is there anything wrong with that? Of course not… We all need to tell ourselves a little white lie once in a while so we feel comfortably satisfied with what has just happened or to help us come to terms with such and such.

But then you can also apply this phrase in a more literal manner. (more…)


Easy Peasy

Easy Peasy

Logic – “Reasoning conducted or assessed according to strict principles of validity”

I get amazed at the lack of logic us humans use sometimes.

It’s just plain and simple things that people over-complicate which causes them to have little to no logic in what they do or say.

Why can’t people just think like me…? Then the whole world would be a much simpler place.

For example:

Today is the 4th of November which means it’s almost Bonfire night.

November starts with an “N”, which is the 14th letter of the alphabet. (more…)

Just look at that beauty…

What more can I say?

This wasn’t even supposed to be a blog-post, but whatever… Might as well give you a double dose of The EssWhyDee Blog this week.

BEHOLD. My friends.

Welcome.

Welcome to the Golden Eagle era.

Let me hang up your jackets. Oh, and do take a seat… (more…)


Or as you might say... "Haters gonna hate"

Or as you might say… “Haters gonna hate”

This is a topic that can pretty much be under any category. For example, I could have easily made this into an Interpreted article, a My Thoughts On article, or even added it to the most popular category, Why Bother?

But then I remembered, I had promised that you guys got to dictate what format of article you wanted. Apparently, 50% of you wanted a funny rant. Great.

Fucking great. Humour doesn’t just grow on trees you know.

Anyway, to this week’s topic…

Haters.

The way this term is thrown about over the internet, real life and in general conversation lately has started to bug me so much that I thought I’d write something on it.

How original eh? *Smiles creepily while the lights flicker* (more…)


“Interpreted” is the name of my brand new project on The EssWhyDee Blog. Well, I say project… I mean seriesNote: This is just a test to see how the article goes down with my readers. I’m relying on that Thumbs up/down gauge to the top left of this post for you to tell me whether or not you enjoyed it or not. Please click one of the two (You don’t need to be logged in to do so).

Ah yes, this old classic.

Remember when life was shit? ….. – Ahhh yes, them good ol’ days.

Remember when times were hard? ….. - Yes. Wait, where exactly are you going with this?

Remember when life was giving you lemons? ….. - Lemons? The fuck. I never got any lemons.

One of your buddies comes along and tells you that one thing that you really want to hear when you’re down in the gutters. (more…)

I took over half an hour selecting an appropriate header image for this article, so please… Take a moment out to appreciate it. That is exactly what being in the friendzone feels like x 100 (From reliable sources).

I’ve been meaning to write this article for quite some time now, but I’ve never actually got round to it. One of the reasons being that I believed that I could write a decent introduction and a punchline finish (As per usual), but I didn’t know exactly what to write in the body of the text. I had informed some of my friends that I wanted to write this article and they seemed to quite like the idea. So here goes….

Just a quick post folks…

For the regular readers of The EssWhyDee Blog, you obviously know that I NEVER rant about anything, so here’s something new.

PSSSHTT.

It doesn’t really ‘annoy’ me as such, but is something that occurs waaaay more than what is considered a healthy amount… (more…)

What the actual fuck goes on here?

Certain people have this habit. The habit of whispering instead of talking.

Whaaat? Why would you even do such a thing?

As it is, We’re in a noisy environment. These people then decide to go on and actually WHISPER (or near about) as a means of communication.

As if I haven’t had a tiring day and want to just kick back. Now I have to put in all that extra brain-power to solely focus on the bullshit coming outta their collective mouths.

I haven’t posted in a while. Which is good news for society because that usually means that nothing is annoying me enough to sit down write about it.

Anyway, today I experienced the human jolt. You heard… The human jolt… - That sidestep thingy we’re forced to do in public.

You know… When two people are walking in opposite directions to each other and you try to judge the other person’s movement and steps to see which side of the narrow pavement they are going to walk on. In movies, It’s a great scene, sure… Some would say it’s ‘cute’, even. But real life tells a whole different story. Believe me… (more…)

You’d better believe every single word you read in this article…

It says what it says so on the tin. The following article is 100% true, it does not represent my views of any kind and you must totally follow these procedures as if your life depends on it. These are facts.

Facts, I tell you.

Don’t worry. You can trust me…. ;-)

Twitter:

People are really spreading terrible rumours about you on Twitter. Do click the DM link, otherwise shockingly painful things will happen to you. Be sure to find that person who is spreading those vicious lies about you and make them pay, in blood…

Yeah, so I had an alright weekend. You know, just the usual…. Flying planes and stuff… Ah, Who am I kidding? It was frikkin’ AWESOME! (It was a belated birthday present).

Anyway, now that that that that’s out the way. Let us get on with this article. (more…)

Quick note: I will not be posting as much in the weekdays as I’ve started working. I knew you’d understand! Now, let’s crack on…

You know what annoys me a substantial amount?

We don’t want to know.

“Tell us more, Syd!”

Ok then, if you insist. Here goes…

So… It all started as a mere idea.

I was on a gap year and I had a desire to express my views… In particular, I wanted to share a story.

The first hurdle for me, was choosing the right blogging platform for myself. Blogger seemed like the obvious option, but immediately I was put off… Same situation with Tumblr, but decided I wasn’t going to be a micro-blogger. Finally, I found WordPress, downloaded the Android app and stuck with it… And boy am I glad that I did.

So I finally typed up the story I had to tell. It was called My Bizarre Experience. I split it into two parts because initially, I wanted the very first readers of my blog to return a few days later. I had chosen a very bad, dark theme at the time and everything was all very… Urm… Amateur.

Question mark liberal

Unlike usual, The EssWhyDee Blog has had a bit of traffic from web searches the last few days…
People have genuinely searched for the correct uses of “There”, “Their” and “They’re” and ended up on my blog reading my previous Why Bother? article, I feel quite sorry for them actually…
All they got was a sarcastic rant which would’ve just confused them more than before reading it. Unfortunately, I failed to realise that there are many different kinds of people in this world, some that may still be of young age and learning…and others who are just plain thick…

There, their and they’re

Seriously…?

Do I actually have to cover this topic?

It’s basic human knowledge. Some would even call it common sense.

I mean. Come on. How hard can it be?

There = A person’s possession

Their = They are

They’re = Opposite of ‘here’

slang-language-300x216I’ve noticed people using slang excessively on the Internet recently…

Don’t get me wrong, I like slang.

Slang is convenient.

It is totally acceptable on the Internet as well as in a normal conversation nowadays…But something about it has been bothering me…

Yes, that’s right. Surprise, surprise.

“A mini rant with a sprinkle of what the actual fuck” is the forecast for the next 30 seconds.

This article has been chosen by readers (via the poll in this blog http://wp.me/p3jOHU-eU) to be written next. Well, sort of anyway ;-)

social-networks-masthead.20120606230818We live in a world where people poke one another, write on each other’s walls, like every single thing they do, follow one another, repeat(retweet) what people say and even add them to circles. All virtually of course…otherwise that’d be a bit…weird, to say the least.
