Advice


My advice is free. Take it or leave it.

If I were teaching a class in “How to be a Good Criminal” I would advise them not to put tattoos all over their faces. Dying your hair and putting on glasses don’t help the ‘hiding-out’ thing.

If I were teaching a class in “Using a Computer at Home” I would advise people to first of all download a ‘plug-in’ called “Ghostery.com.”  Just do it.  Everywhere you go on the web there are dozens upon dozens of companies tracking your every move. Would you like to know who they are?  Would you like to block them from their tracking games?  Without them knowing you’re blocking them?  My advice is to do it.

On the same subject, computer using, people should know how powerful and wonderful Google is. It will do just about anything you ask. Convert measurements, currency, language, become an instant dictionary, even search out an old girlfriend’s face.  You just have to learn the tricks of using Google.

Just a quick word on Climate Change:
If you have friends or family members that are scientists, as I do, you probably already know what “peer review” papers are. You also know there is no way in hell a conspiracy of these very competitive people to rule the world. Yet there are many ignorant folks, including our own local long-time weather man, who choose to believe that a handful of billionaires (tied to energy companies) and one lying TV network have uncovered a mass conspiracy. My advice is to believe the scientists. Especially since it’s the most important thing the future of mankind needs to deal with. If you don’t want to dig up the 35,000 peer-reviewed papers from the last five years, just look at the peer-reviewed papers from last year. My advice is to believe the experts, not the billionaires or the politicians owned by the billionaires.

    Thanks for the Ghostery tip.

    My own approach to conspiracy theories is that of Mr. Ingham:

    Many journalists have fallen for the conspiracy theory of government. I do assure you that they would produce more accurate work if they adhered to the cock-up theory.
    —Bernard Ingham

    (I’m not a fan of conspiracy theories from either the left or the right. Except for unintentional comedy factor…)

      Your welcome. The little Ghostery guy sits on my top right side of the toolbar. There is a running total every where you land of how many “eyes” are on you. I’ve had as many as 18. Amazing
