There have been times in my life when I get down on my luck too, and when I do, I try to take my mind off what made me feel unlucky by playing video games, watching random YouTube videos, and once I'm not feeling down anymore, I try again.

It happens to me every now and then because the job market where I live is so poor... not even called in for an interview once. Yet, I keep trying.

It's not about that. It's that I feel that I'm not getting the justice I deserved.

Also, I'm a perfectly safe penguin while my friend over there is rapidly running out of limbs.

PACT BROKEN. I SHALL NOW SING YOU THE SONGS OF MY PEOPLE, THE PEOPLE OF DAVIDREKA

We three Kings ate boiling tar
Kissed a bear in back of a car
Drank a fountain, chewed a mountain
Why did we eat that Tar?
What were we thinking, what did we do?
What were we drinking, what did we Chew?
Tar is not a major food group
And you shouldn't kiss a bear.

So I was wanting to catch up on my Webkinz earlier since it's been ages that I did so. I go to the site, and what greets me? This...

There is no type of advertisement box that I hate more than the streaming video ad. Most of the time, the sound is muted, but even so, such ads waste bandwidth and the movement distracts you from what you want to accomplish. What's worse? Getting one of these things on a device that has an Intel Atom processor or something similar. Such ads are guaranteed to slow your browser down if you have a low end laptop. One of these stupid things even appeared in the Webkinz game window on the right side, hawking some stupid TMZ-like show that I wouldn't care for even if I didn't know it existed. In fact, what is such an ad doing on Webkinz in the first place?

I will continue saying this until it becomes reality... these types of ads (along with popups, full page ads that hijack your page, and "Suggested article" slide ins) should be banned by international law. I believe these ads are intentionally designed to distract, and to me, that takes away control from your device and puts it at the mercy of the advertiser. Would that be censorship though? I don't think so because more acceptable advertising methods could be introduced, like the guidelines the makers of AdBlock Plus want. And, bandwidth would be saved if video ad boxes were outlawed.

I really don't want to use AdBlock on Webkinz, and I don't think the ads go away if you get the Webkinz Gold Membership. I shall look into it since I highly doubt such advertising would go away. Companies and advertising agencies would cry "FIRST AMENDMENT!!!" and that would be the end of it. Sad

"Exciting Adventure, Fashion and Fame,
Once you're a Jem girl, you're never the same.

Come on, come on, and be a Jem girl.
Jem! Jem is my name!"

Sorry. Jem and the Holograms is an amazing, well written show, even though the fashion contained within is extremely tacky compared to today.

Honestly I barely heard of Jem prior to a friend of mine at an American Girl message board yapping about the series. But yeah, the fashions were tacky and all, though I see it does have quite a following.

Don't worry, I won't go on and on about Jem, but it is one of my current interests. In fact, I'm also getting into G.I. Joe and the first Transformers show, all which air along with Jem on that Discovery Family Channel. These, along with the daytime shows are the only part of the schedule that is constant to be honest. Their night time programming changes at the drop of a hat, which is getting annoying.
