YouTube Spam and Scams

Image
YouTube is incredibly bad at keeping out spam and scams. I've literally seen porn spam where it literally says it's a porn link. Sigh. This is the latest thing. It's a scam that is showing up as replies to comments on big name YouTubers. They are smarter than the usual, as it has the channel icon of the person who posted the video, but the name is not the same as you see. Seriously, when this shows up 200 times in 2 minutes and YT still does not think it's spam, you got to shake your head.  

A Day in Photos

Image
Always I have the coffee in the morning. The tattoo you see above is a reminder of mental health issues in my life. It's never far from my mind, and I'm grateful that medication works so well. Mandelbulb3D is a very fun hobby. It makes 3D fractals like the one above. Always nice when it's mostly sunny and I can sit outside in the sun.  

I'm About 90% Vegetarian

Image
Been eating a lot of lentil soup the last few days. I am however almost out of spice to put in it, so that is going to stop. I need to make more of my bean mix today as well, I'm all out. Might not even eat today, not that I'm lacking in hunger, but I just have an upset tummy and I want to skip it. Maybe I'll just do up some veggies to eat and be done with it. I'm about 90% vegetarian at the moment. I do still eat some cheese and meat on occasion. I seem to feel a lot better eating less meat. My pain levels are down and my joints are not as stiff. My blood work seems to be coming back great since I went veggie as well. So it's been good for me. It is dull as hell though, because I can't afford fresh stuff, only frozen.  

New Appliances Are Terrible

Image
Ya know, this stove is only 2 and a half years old. There seems to be rust on the one burner. It's the one I use to make coffee with my Moka pot. That's just not quality I'm telling you. It's an "Amana" if you are wondering the brand. They also gave me a nice new Frigidaire fridge. This thing makes more noise than an old truck on a washboard road. I mean when it cuts in the defrost, it sounds like someone dropped a plastic cup from a great height. Seriously, you can hear it in the hall when it does it. They tell me this is normal. Got to wonder how they make appliances these days. Are they made to be replaced or have parts changed in a couple of years? It freaking seems that way.  

My Doctor is Abandoning Me

Image
So my doctor is leaving and abandoning me to die. Seriously though, I took a year to get her as a doctor, and now looking at the list of doctors in Moose Jaw, there are literally only 2 that are taking individual patients that are not pregnant. If I was a woman, a child, had a family, or was trans, I'd be able to find a doctor right away. But I'm a single male who is not trans - so I have extremely limited options. I'll have to phone the 2 places that have doctors taking individuals tomorrow and see if one will take me or not. Sadly the one that I am more sure of getting is on the other side of the city, and if I need a cab, it's going to be a fortune. The worst part is, when I got on with this doctor, she told me she planed to stay in Moose Jaw for the rest of her time as a doctor. That did not happen, I did not even have her as a doctor for 7 months before I got this letter. Sigh. It's like the health system is trying to screw people over. And why the hell is ther

Jigsaw Puzzles Update

Image
Once again, I use Jigsaws Galore on my PC to make and play puzzles. It's rather become an obsession over the years. For the past 3 years or so, I've been saving the puzzles I've played, and keeping track of them all - just because I can.  

Why Am I Getting 2 Different YouTube Players?

Image
This is a screen cap of the YouTube Android App, with 2 different accounts. It's my device (same device) and the same Wi-Fi. So why is my Tag channel account getting a nicer looking player than my Vlogging account. Should the "Premium" not have the nicer looking player? Just so strange there is even a difference. Same app, same phone, same Wi-Fi.  

It's Not Selfish to Have Pets Instead of Children

Image
  Q: Is it selfish if a couple decides to have pets instead of children?  A: I don't think so. I'm 55 and never had any children and seeing the state of the world, I'm rather glad I did not have any. As well, the world literally does NOT need to have humans keep breading out of control. We are using up resources very fast and it won't be extremely long until we have run out of a lot of things we need for our technology and so on. Not to mention what we have done to the planet, in my estimate, we have about 100 to 150 years until most of the planet it too hot to grow food. So no it's not selfish to have pets instead. The only people demanding you have children seem to be religious leaders who want to win some kind of race with other religions, as to how many followers you can get.
