      Yesterday in my technical communications class, I listened to a group give a presentation on fracking in which they insisted that fracking somehow increases the spread of STDs.

      I laughed about that for a good long while.

        So how does fracking somehow increase the spread of sexually transmitted diseases?
        Were you paying attention?
        Did you ask questions?

          I think it depends on who (and how) you're fracking, and whether or not you take the proper precautions. big_smile

                    No, I got it from Freddy. Thats probably where the people who claimed fracking causes… oh I get it.

          Hahahaha! No, fracking in no way could cause the spread of STDs. That's why it was funny that the presenters could even say so with a straight face.

          Fracking is the process of drilling a deep, deep hole and pumping fluids down into the rock layer to fracture it ("frack"). This causes it to release oil and natural gas which is trapped inside the rock. It has absolutely nothing to do with sex.

    Cancelling the release of the film "The Interview" and the increasing number of class action suits against Sony Pictures, because of cyber crime and ramifications of info leaks.

            Private lessons are fun! Students can gain more skills that way - and more laughs as student and instructor both fall down at times.

    The end of SOA, Sons of Anarchy. I'm guessing they just were not going to be able to top the episodes on an ongoing series anymore. Sad to see it come to an end.

    I had an odd experience earlier today thanx good ol' HP...

    Some of you may have noticed that I hate Spam in the forums/Q&A here. This morning I left one of my typically snide anti-spam remarks under an obvious BS post in the Q&A section, as is my hobby.

    A little while later I got an e-mail through HubPages from the author of said spam post, who told me that I was, and I quote, a "loser."

    In fact that's all the message said. This is what it looked like:

    "Loser.
    Loser loser loser loser loser loser
    Loser loser loser loser loser loser
    Loser loser loser loser loser loser
    Loser loser loser loser loser loser
    (repeat several hundred more times)"

    ...boy, it must've taken him HOURS to come up with such a witty retort.

    When I checked again later, the dude's SPAM post had been removed by a moderator, so I ask, who's the real loser huh??

    Just another day's work fighting the scammers, the spammers, and the numb-nuts.

        Yes, and I'm not joking. I am an optimist, and necessarily so. Otherwise, I would have checked out a long time ago! I had entertained the fantasy when I started with Hubpages that the average  IQ , and level of maturity, on a site that was so well designed,  would be much higher. And so I was quite disillusioned when I noticed that many who claim in their profiles to be professionals, are people I wouldn't hire to work on my janitorial staff, and I certainly wouldn't let them work in the kitchen!

          You have to be very careful. You want someone who knows the difference between the toilet and the sink.

    LOL! When I was a kid I worked in a restaurant for a while. One day a customer became belligerent with the manager because he said his burger wasn't properly cooked. I was in the kitchen and could not believe my eyes. But what could I do? He was my boss. The manager put the hamburger back on the grill.

    When it was finished, he pulled down his pants, took the hamburger buns, and ... well you get the picture. Anyway, we both watched as the customer ate the hamburger. When the man was finished eating, my boss asked him if it was OK. The man said it was delicious! I was only 16 years old, but it was a valuable lesson. NEVER INSULT THE COOK OR THE WAITER !!! Obviously my boss, who I think was in his 20's at the time, was emotionally immature. If he is still alive, he probably comments on Hubpages.

    I believe it was spelled "frak" on "Battlestar Galactica," though. It was their Prime-Time TV-safe, outer-spacey version of a swear word.

    ...so anyway, what was this thread about again??
