Sign Of The Times

If you are a ptc site regular then you know what crowdflower is, a tab that you do little tasks for points. the tasks are easy somewhat and most involve searches on Google or Bing but today it was different.

Today the task was identifying voice commands for help to improve a cars onboard system. I  was into the task and they were quite interesting until I came upon this section

I'm no prude, i listen to the hip hop but seeing this was offensive to me, any spelling of the N-Word is offensive to me.  The fact that this was used offended me, the fact that someone thought it was okay to put it offended me so i sent a support ticket hoping to have it fixed...and the next day it was resolved but not in the way i thought.

here is the response to my complaint from the owners of crowdflower

Pretty nonchalant if you ask me. consider appending a explicit content warning to the task? how about taking the offensive part down, how about removing it. how about giving a Damn!!!

So what drives business is profit, they need to make money more money. staying consistent isn't good enough and losing money is a definite no no so there are ways a business can make more money and its by giving you less product but keeping the product the same price or increasing it.

 case in point spaghetti products by Campbell have shrunk noticeably but the price has not. we are paying more essentially because we are getting less product so its sneaky with a price increase but a product decrease.  spaghettios and franks use to be 14 3/4oz(418g) now they are 14oz(397g). what's the big deal you say? well its not a big deal but its the principal of it and another way big business is fleecing us

Campbell's Spaghettios W/sliced Franks

the pics are not exact because the size difference isn't that big but there is a difference

Steak,Egg,Cheese Bagel....that is all

I admit im a little greedy so I like food. One of my favorite foods for breakfast when im not making something home made is this dish from Mcdonalds--cue the shining lights and angelic singing AHHHHHHH. *ahem* anyway this delish dish will make your mouth water quicker than Pavlovs dog (who said blogs never teach you anything) The Steak,Egg and Cheese bagel.

Lara Croft fan film

I'm a huge fan of fan films and when they are done right they can rival or outshine any Hollywood bloated budget spectacular. The thing that beams through in fan films are the love for the characters and game the creators have.
 This fan film is definetly a R rated production with violence on the level of most blockbuster movies- think Rambo's First Blood with a woman but the gritiness is inline with the present incarnation of the Lara Croft franchise. This is a lara croft fan film and it technically isn't you will see after its done.
