I Faced My Fears 1 Mile High on a Swinging Bridge!

Jul 28

I’ve always had a fear of Heights. I don’t even like to get up on a chair to change a bulb.

I’ve tried not to let my fears control my life. I take a rational approach and think it through. Think of the dangers involved. Think about all the things I’ve heard about someone getting hurt or killed doing what ever it is. And lastly I use the Google test. When my son was young he was afraid that a Shark would come out of the Toilet and bite him. Well I said “lets go look it up on Google and see if a Shark has indeed swam up the pipes of someones house and bitten there bum”. Well, we found no such luck and proceed back to the bathroom where I just happened to have on hand. One shot down the toilet and we were good.

It proves that most of our fears are unfounded, we get wrapped up in the “What Ifs”. I’m not saying your fears aren’t real, they are very real, but the odds of most of them happening are slim and none.

Walking on the bridge showed me that. Luckily I was calm enough to film my self on the way back across. The way over was a little more shaky and my stomach was lifted up into my chest as if to get as far away from the ground as possible.

So, if you haven’t gotten into Social Media because you are afraid of Computers, Technology, just don’t understand it or whatever reason, we’ll walk you through it. Millions have gone before you so it can’t be that hard– right! Read the rest of this entry »

Delete Your Ex From The Internet

This was posted on Gizmodo.com (tech Blog) and I wanted to share it with all my fans. What a great Idea for all those people who just worry and pine over their lost lovers. I think this could be very useful, especially for the whole Hollywood crowd!

Breaking up is hard to do, especially in the age of the internet. How can you really avoid her when there’s Facebook, Twitter and all the rest of it? With the new Ex-Blocker plugin, that’s how.

The Ex-Blocker is a plugin for Firefox and Chrome that literally filters your ex out of the internet for you. Simply feed it their first and last names, their Twitter username, their Facebook profile info and their blog URL, and it takes care of the rest. Sure, photos can slip through the cracks, I’m sure. And you’ll have to set up an email filter yourself if you want to cut off contact completely.

But this might just stop you from seeing that picture of the one person who used to love you that would remind you that your time with them was the best days of your life that you will never, ever get back because you are stupid and selfish and fucked up badly in a way that is completely irreparable. And that would be, like, a total downer. [Ex-Blocker via Motherboard.tv]
