When you think about it, “qu’est-ce” is the most incredibly convoluted contraction ever devised, and it’s totally legit and widely used in French.
This messed me up learning French back in high school.
"Qu’est-ce que c’est/What is it that it is" srysly France why.
Well, whether mine is good or twisty is up for debate, but uh, I guess I can give advice about that! It’s kinda funny that this is a Thing that I have Experience With.
This will prolly have BP spoilers so yeah readmore for that.
Yes. I’d like some bird seeds, thank you. and how long does it usually take for the birds to grow.
I am trying to learn about Internet advertising tonight.
Google search has revealed many, many people very eager to teach me about Internet advertising. And all their sites are full of ads. Think of the worst site you’ve ever seen - ads on the top, ads in the sidebar, ads at the end, targeted links throughout the text - and all of the sites that want to teach me about Internet advertising are even worse than that.
I assume a bunch of Internet marketers wanted to make some quick money, set up websites, and thought “Hmmm, I need some content. What’s something I know really well that I can write a lot about?…
The most interesting thing I have learned so far is that Amazon has a program where if you link to them through your blog and someone buys the product you link to, you get a cut of the profit. For example, if you write a review of a computer, and link to Amazon selling it, and someone clicks through and buys the computer, you could make a lot of money.
Which was about what I expected. The interesting part is that Amazon does this by means of a cookie which means that anything the person buys on Amazon for the next 24 hours is considered your fault. So if they click on the computer, decide not to buy it, but then they wake up the next morning and realize they’re out of aspirin and buy a bottle of aspirin on Amazon, you get a cut.
I’ve heard of “guerilla marketing”, but it seems a much more faithful use of the term would be putting random extremely exciting looking links throughout everything you’re writing (like “NASA SAYS MOON TO CRASH INTO EARTH, CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS!!!)”, but have them actually be your affiliate links to Amazon. Since people buy products on Amazon quite often, if enough people click you’ve got a pretty good chance of making some money entirely by accident.
You might think that people would eventually get mad at you for this, but it’s already an Internet norm that this sort of sneaky misdirection is all in good fun.

i just need to take a second and note something really weird and annoying that doesn’t actually significantly impact my life or anyone else’s:
on the smash bros site it starts with a page where you select your region/language and when you click the US button it takes you to like smashbros.com/us/, but if you actually type in smashbros.com/us/ INTO THE URL BAR, it redirects you to the language select page so that you have to pick your language manually.
WHY. WHY. HOW, EVEN. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE AND WHY WOULD YOU GO OUT OF YOUR WAY TO DO IT. I DON’T UNDERSTAND.
smashbros.com/us/ redirects; www.smashbros.com/us/ doesn’t.
wh- is that- how does- doesn’t-
i haven’t typed a www into a url bar since like, 2002
July 21st is the day that Mario Tennis for the N64 was released in japan, and it also marks the first appearance of Waluigi!
Happy birthday Waluigi!
may i point out that the specific move waluigi is performing in this gif is called a biellmann spin, a very intensely difficult component in figure skating and particularly challenging for a man to perform. i think we should applaud waluigi for such clear dedication to his craft
