Can you eat more than one of this flavored Pringles?
November 14th, 2019 under Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]


It is almost Thanksgiving, which we also call Turkey Day. Since we will be so sick of the big bird after the holiday, we can still like the taste of it now. Therefore, Pringles is selling roasted turkey flavored potato chips for a limited time. For those of you who cannot wait until then to have that bland taste in your mouth! Do you want that taste on your taste buds?

The best part is that it takes less than a minute to open as compared to waiting hours for the real thing.

Kevin Hart makes his first public appearance since his car accident
November 11th, 2019 under Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]


Back on September 1st, Kevin Hart was in a serious car accident with two other people and broke his back in three places. Since then we have seen him public, but we have not seen him at any public events. That changed last night when he showed up to the People’s Choice Awards on E! to accept The Best Comedy Act of 2019 Award.

Since the “people” choose the winners, the comedian, who was looking healthy, had a message for his voters. He said, “First and foremost man, thank God because I definitely don’t have to be here. Being that I am, it makes me appreciate life even more. It makes me appreciate the things that really matter. Family. I want to thank my wife and my kids, who really stepped up to the plate for me.”

Then the actor added, “I also want to take the time to thank the People’s Choice Awards just for this. This is amazing, but more importantly the people, man. You have no idea the effect that you have on us as entertainers. Your energy, your support. It means the world and I truly want to thank you guys for being there for me in my difficult time.”

I wish more celebrities acknowledged their fans like he did. If it was not for us, where would they be? I wish the ones that don’t appreciate us, went into a void where no longer hear their names.

The Invisible Man takes all the fun out of the concept
November 7th, 2019 under Movies, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]


The Invisible Man is kind of a fun concept about a man who becomes invisible and has a hard time with his new power. In the latest take on the classic story, they have turned it into a psychological movie about a stalker who faked his death to go after his abusive lover played by Elisabeth Moss.

Yeah, I will skip it when it comes out on February 28th. Why does everything have to be so f*cked up now like this and Joker? What happened to fun!

Can Being Good At Video Games Get You Your Dream Job?
November 7th, 2019 under Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]

Video games, for most people, are a source of entertainment and distraction. When we're children, we play them as much as we possibly can until our parents intervene and tell us to switch them off. When we're adults, we play them as a way to unwind after a long day at work, or as a diversion from the more stressful elements of day to day life. Apart from the people who make video games, very few of us consider them a way of making money.

Should we think again about that point, though? We ask because something every Football Manager fan has dreamed of for as long as they've played the game has begun to happen. Football Manager – a soccer management simulation – is enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. Many of those people know the joy of taking Morecambe from the foot of the English football league table to European Champions or achieving a similarly unlikely feat. It makes us feel like we should know a thing or two about football management if someone ever gave us a chance at a real club, but we don't actually expect to be offered a job.

Now, however, it's actually happening. There's a 22-year-old analyzing performance at a Serbian second division team after sending them a resume full of his Soccer Manager achievements, and he’s not alone. Players who dedicate themselves to the game often have a better understanding of monitoring statistics and identifying trends than real-life scouts do, and teams are increasingly calling on their services to identify weaknesses – as well as to find players who could potentially improve the team. One day soon, it’s possible that a successful Football Manager player might actually be handed a management role in real life.

That got us thinking – are there any other areas of life where video game skills could cross over into real-life work? We think there are – and these are the roles video gamers could be targeting!

Professional Gambler

Not all gambling is down to chance. There are some aspects of gambling where skill is just as important as the cards in your hand, or the chips on your table, and if you're adept at the games, then you can become a professional gambler. With so many online slots UK and online casino websites available, it's not like you don't have places to practice. Mobile slots would be a difficult avenue to go down, but even with that, there's a mathematical formula that governs the probability of success in every mobile slots game. Find a place where you could play poker or blackjack for free or for low stakes, though, and you could stay there until you've truly honed your craft. Once you're winning regularly, you could start playing for real money, and the sky is the limit from there. The world's best poker players earn millions of dollars per year.

E-                  Sports Player

With apologies to non-soccer fans, we're using the sport as an example yet again here. It's estimated that up to fifty million people around the world buy the latest installment of EA's FIFA Soccer game every year, so the worldwide player base is huge. Officially-organized tournaments have earned huge audiences on YouTube and Twitch, and have even sold out small stadiums. Now, real-life teams are signing E-Sports players and paying real money to have them represent the team at these tournaments, and the prize money involved can be staggering.

Competition is so fierce that there have even been players transferred between clubs with money changing hands in the process. If you’re always beating your friends every time you play FIFA, you could be the next big thing in E-Sports. There’s even a guide right here which shows you how to get involved in the sport. Be warned though – only the very best need apply!

Live Streamer

This is the easiest career choice to get started with, and the least limiting. You don’t even have to apply for a different job if you want to break into live streaming – all you have to do is pick a game that people want to watch other people play, and become really good at it. Even that isn’t necessary all the time – some viewers deliberately go looking for players who are so bad that they’ll get a laugh out of it! Both YouTube Gaming and Twitch exist as forums for people who want to try their hand at streaming video games, and neither of them will cost any money to sign up with. The most important attribute you need with streaming, though, is patience.

Don't give up your day job immediately. Building viewership is difficult – it could be weeks or even months before you're able to surpass 100 viewers regularly. Once you're above that level, you'll start earning advertising revenue, and the amount will increase as you pull in more viewers. You could even open a Patreon account so viewers can donate to you directly if you wish, although you generally have to offer a specific service in return for the money. There are people currently earning millions of dollars per year just for playing Fortnite. When the next game goes viral, make sure you're ready and waiting to start streaming it before anyone else catches on.

As well as the existence of direct routes into earning money from video games, there are also avenues that could open up simply because of your love of video games. You could become a gaming journalist or a play tester. You could take your love of games to the next level by studying how games are made, and get involved as either a graphic designer or a story editor. Making games is about more than just programming – the programmers do the hard work, but they still need input from people who can tell a compelling story, so they know what to program! If you've ever come to the end of the story mode of a game and thought you could have done it better, there's nothing stopping you from putting that idea to the test.

If you’re a great video gamer and you wish you could spend all day playing, you have the opportunity to make it happen for yourself. Why not give it a try?

The most impressive scratchcard wins
November 5th, 2019 under Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]

Winning the lottery, or any form of daily jackpot in online casinos seems like a long-shot for most people. But one form of trying-your-luck is more popular than ever and that is scratchcards.

The instant win and instant gratification is something that draws the attention of so many players. Whether it's receiving 30 individual £1 scratchcards on your 30th birthday, using them as wedding favours for guests or simply buying one on your daily trip to grab lunch, scratchcards are great for many different occasions.

Statistics say that 25% of the British public buy a scratchcard each month, with that number rising to 50% for at least one per year. People might buy them because they’re feeling lucky or because they’re trying to get some luck, but all are in search of a big win.

Most winners on scratchcards don’t receive a jackpot amount, but for those who do, the sum is life-changing. Let’s take a look at some of those lucky few who managed to land the win-of-a-lifetime.

Paul Harrington

The bricklayer from Wolverhampton was sitting waiting for his doctor’s appointment when he scratched off an impressive £1,000 win. But his luck didn't end there. Less than a month later, Paul felt compelled to buy another scratchcard, the same type that he had won on previously. Sitting down, Paul had realised he’d won and was chuffed at another success. Upon later inspection, he realised he hadn’t won another grand, he had won £300,000!

Lee and Lea Rose

After heading out to the local shops to grab some salad for the family dinner, Lea arrived home with her £250,000 Multiplier scratchcard. The mum of six was baffled at the sight of her scratchcard as it revealed the jackpot number – £250,000.

Stunned in disbelief, Lea handed the scratchcard to her husband who thought she was playing a practical joke. They both realised they had just won £250,000, changing their lives completely. Lee quit his job and opened up his own business, whilst Lea started buying home decorations that she had been patiently saving for. The family took a trip to the Isle of Wight to celebrate and a day out to Legoland.

Andrew Hancock

One evening, Andrew realised he had forgotten to pick up some food for his beloved pet cat, Shortcake, on his way home from work. Andrew headed back out and popped into the local garage to grab some dinner for the feline as well as some fuel.

At the counter, he asked for a Monopoly Millionaire scratchcard as he had previously won on one before. Andrew was caught off-guard whilst stood in the middle of the forecourt as he revealed the £1 million jackpot. Flustered, he wasn’t sure if he should go home and tell his wife Paula or ring up the National Lottery hotline to double-check he wasn't imagining things. The pair were ecstatic when they called the hotline, and the news was confirmed. All because Shortcake needed their next meal.

Peter Smith

It was a close call for Smith who won £100,000 but nearly didn’t. The man from East London popped into a local garage and upon exiting the car, he asked his mum if she would like a scratchcard. When he sat back down in the car, he jokingly shuffled them, before offering his mum first pick of the two.

The life-changing amount of money did exactly that, change lives. As a carer for his dad and bills looming over the family, Smith paid off all outstanding debts and treated everyone to an evening in the West End.

Although these wins are few and far between, there are still many opportunities to win a smaller amount, and something is always better than nothing.
