well, I dont have to do the whacking.(but thats better then ...choking..) And the whole thing is for food, wich is good, right? BBQ is going to be fun, and hopefully beach on monday. so thats all good.
I have come across some people on forums who express their hate for fellow hubbers sort of openly. As for spammers, you know how many spam and promotional hubs are being published every minute over here.
Ok, so how about some things I do like. I love the ocean, I go to the beach and scuba dive all the time. I read a lot, mostly memoirs. I listen to music all day, some local bands, lots of acoustic, reggae, rock, some country. I go to shows/concerts a few times a month. And I like movies, dramas that make you think about life, or movies that remind me of my childhood. Anything there?!?!
Everybody loves the beach and the oceans - doesnt count. The atlantic is practically my neighbour! No scuba diving, but I think its hot for a lady to scuba dive. Mad about music - into rock, hip hop real hip hop, that is, techno, celtic, metal, classical. I read atleast five books a week. At least. Anything from Stephen King, John Grisham, Jeffrey Archer, Robert Ludlum, to the old stuff from J.R.R Tolkien, H.G Wells, HP Lovecraft, J.D. Salinger and the rest. I love movies like a madman, I should, I'm making mine soon enough.
First your lips are caressed by the soft, tingling head of the firm yet supple dark libation, then suddenly you are overwhelmed by the raw explosive power of insatiable malted barley, before settling into a rhythmic, steady indulgence of Westphalian hops.......
Run faster? No. Haterade just makes you mad at the world because you're mad at yourself. You're lookin' for Gatorade. And their coach just got a crazy raise... I'm hopin' if I drink some I'll get one.. but that's a stretch.
Indeed...but if you just scroll around you will be able to quickly identify what percentage contains substance and what percentage is based on plugging a product.
Though some of the "plugging" hubs are extremely informative and well written...certainly no offense towards the writers or their hubs in that regard. The disdain is more towards the obvious "copy and paste" rhetoric that some people think is passable in peddling their wares. Just have a look...come to your own conclusion ya know.
I'd join you for a beer but I'm straight edge...settle for a caffeinated beverage though
So lets discuss about how to make HubPages an even better place over the bottles of beer. I am not suggesting that its not a good place already but nothing is perfect, so lets make HP the only perfect place on the Earth. Something better than Utopia ...?
Hmm... I've been called lots of things, and I try, with success, not to take them seriously or personally. I know that isn't possible for everyone. So can people work on just not sayin them in the first place? I know its tempting and sometimes I seriously just want to say "Suck it!" but I resist... I resist.
I would love to have a beer with you to discuss hubpages. I love it. I kick up a bit on some of the forums, but don't mind taking a few hits from the opposition! This is a wonderful site, and every time someone complains about hubpage management in the forums it is premature, Maddie and the crew get it sorted in short order, but it must take a hell of an effort with so many forums and hubs!
you hold out there CB, some people get a bit too excited about others having kids! It is a massive slice of time out of a single life, and you have it all going so smoothly with your other half. It sound to me like you and your BF are able to love your way through your relationship. A terrific way to be, and I am one hundred percent in agreement with what I have read of you two. More power to you, and if you ever decide to become a mother, you have all the attributes in place.
That was so nice of you earnest! Yes, I want to be a mother. But not right now. I'm 22. I enjoy the way things are with my boyfriend and I. I have plenty of time to be a mother and she has plenty of time to be a grandmother. Guess how old his mother is?
She is 38, she had my boyfriend when she was 16. She is an amazing mother. And I obviously think highly of her. But, come on, you got plenty of time lady. And she would like a granddaughter because she has 3 boys. I didn't think I was taking requests? Nor that I had a choice in the matter? But oh well. Thanks for being so sweet earnest. It means a lot. I hope I'll be a good mother, when the time comes.
Colebabie, she should have her own baby at 38! You're right about your having plenty of time.
My kids are grown and single, and I'm happy for every year I get to have without being a grandmother yet. I know I'll be happy with them when they do come along, but I keep telling my kids I don't want to be a grandmother until I'm at least past 60. (Old enough to have a little gray hair, the way Grannies are supposed to have; but young enough to, hopefully, live to see them grow up. )
She has three children, the youngest is 8. And she can't have any more. She will just have to wait for grandbabies My mom is 47, she isn't ready yet. My friends have kids and she looks at them and I tell her not to get any ideas.
My first wife, had my daughter at sixteen.We were kids ourselves. Life is strange, we remained happily married for 29 years. The marriage loss was entirely my own fault. We are still very good mates, and I see her weekly at least as we share time with the terrorists, er I mean little darlings! Although having a child cut in to our youth, we were able to make it work very well for us. It is not the path I would suggest for anyone in good circumstances though. Our family lives were very difficult and we needed to get away and did. Never looked back, handled seeing the families again regularly and all, but it was tough.
Ah ha! Now THERE's a topic we can all get into. Tell us about your movie that you're making? Forgive me if you have talked about it previously. I don't get around to as many Forum threads as I'd like... MM
Its a horror flick, I have to finish the screenplay first, I'm on Scene Twenty Something, and its looking pretty damn good if I must say. The dialogues are dark and comely, characters are fresh and soulful. Its actually a spin off tale of a 70s low budget blockbuster horror series in my country. I'm supposed to use frenzied and shaky shots for it. I adore the 70s cinema! But the movie is gonna be a sucker punch - that's the plan.
Not "everyone" loves the beach. I go to school with people who hate the beach and we can walk to it. Rock is the only genre of music we have in common. Glad we both like to read and watch movies though
now you're making it look like one of them awkward scenes in a movie when two people are about to kiss then someone walks in and says, hey I'm I interrupting something? And they go nervously, no no nothing like that. Lol.
The horror flick sounds very inviting actually....with as much rubbish comes out of the genre which I commonly ignore you had me at "70's"...as well as the mention of the rather shaky stock in regards to the cinematography.
Huge vintage horror movie fan...anything with the name Vincent Price and DVD has a place in my home....would love to hear more if you care to provide the details.
dude guys are those guys who are shallow and or lack intellect. Those kinda guys who think having balls is doing something like skydive and screaming rock and roll! But when real danger hits they pee on their pants. I can go on and on, but that would take hours. As for me being jealous, Baby, you only wish you had a taste of some of this African chocolate. Its value is indefatigable.
Oh Shove it. A girl makes a racist comment and says I apologize and everything is fine. Its the 21st century, black people have advance way ahead to be put down by one abercrombie cheerleader who cant watch her words. You might have deleted your post, but you will never delete the revelation. I knew my instincts were right, when I was ignoring you at first in here, I knew I shouldn't have tried to be nice. But friends in here keep telling me lighten up. Well, I have no more words to waste on a racist. Happy hubbing or not.
Realy fiery? I know your a madman and all...but really? Chocolate IS brown, not racist, fact. and I adore chocolate, including dark, but it is bitter. fact. Calling a sweet, smart, caring, funny, TAKEN girl fake and plastic is just as mean.
Misha, its not a big deal. He can think what he wants. I really didn't mean to offend him at all. I'm not even sure why it did. Just leave it alone. I don't mind everything he's said about me, but I don't appreciate him calling me a racist. But still, it isn't worth it. He has an opinion and adds it to HP, everything is ok.
You're a smart guy, Misha. I know I jab you a couple of times in here, but its all fun. I really want us to have a beer sometime or red wine if that makes you happy (inside joke) But despite our differences in here, I'm sure that deep down inside, you know that was a dark, dark, cursed thing she said. Now dont lose that respect you have of me, cos I happen to take offence by a thing such dastardly as my race being termed as bitter. C'mon, even you must see reason to this.
No Fiery, she did not pack anything like that there. It's all in your own head. It is your own insecurity that forces you to see racist things where there is none. You are a strong man, get over it, you are getting difficult to converse with when that thing gets hold of you.
I know I'm a hardass, even my Mom tells me so for heaven's sake. However, it is not always insecurity that forces a black man to ponder and often declare an opinion as pe regarding an alleged (i use this lightly) racist comment. Just a thought to ponder on. Goodluck Man, got a screenplay to finish.
Now I understand why you were upset. But that isn't what I meant at all. The term "bitter" was meant for you, not your race. I would never say anything like that. I would never call an entire race a word. And the word "bitter" goes all the way back to when you were calling me "baby" and I didn't like it.
What you're doing is disaster repair. You know you just messed up, and you're trying to put a spin on it, so the people in here will think you're just a nice, fun-loving college girl. But I'm not fooled, one bit. Here's what you said - I find dark chocolate to be a little too bitter for me. Is that racist? Hello!
I am really bored with the forums. They used to be edgy and so much fun, now it's all about loving Jesus and hating Obama. I miss the interesting topics we used to argue about. Misha has actually changed my viewpoints on a few subjects... and none of them were about Jesus or Obama. HOOOO HUMMMMM. I wish someone would talk dirty, or slap me!
For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each case, I flagged them for HP, and they will likely disappear soon. But they harm...
I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...
all the people I see spamming the forums are signing up long enough to post on the forum but aren't writing any hubs. So ... I was thinking. Why not require three hubs from a person before they can post in the forums? They would still be allowed to read to their heart's content, but they would need...
This might be my last forum post because I am tired. I can't be wasting my time beating a dead horse.HP is a business and they need to start treating their business more seriously. They need a task force to sit and brain storm about how to keep spammers out in the first place.I know that I have...
I think HP should put some sore of restriction on posting to the forums to keep people from joining just to post their spam.New hubbers should have to at least publish One hub of original content before having access to the forums. I'm sure this will not eliminate all the spammers but it may...
Title says it all, really. Why not prevent people from posting to the forums unless they've written at least one hub? Most of these spammers don't have a hub to their name. It wouldn't sort the problem out completely, but it would cut down on the spam a bit.
