Potential Employers Asking for Facebook Passwords, An Invasion of Privacy?

My two cents on applicants being asked by potential employers for their Facebook passwords

It’s a pure invasion of privacy. If your HR managers can’t find any questionable content on the internet about an applicant, it’s fair to assume they are at least smart enough to not put their dirt on the internet, and just as safe to assume that if hired, they won’t put your company’s dirt online.

Applicants, if faced with this dilemma, I suggest that you ask the CEO for their FB pwd. See what happens, LOL.

Hilarious Video: ULTIMATE Caption FAIL!




By Internetainers, Rhett and Link

“If you’re not sure what we mean by the game “Telephone”, it’s the party game where you whisper something in someone’s ear, then they whisper it in someone else’s ear, and so on. The message gets changed over time. If you’re playing this game at a party, it probably means it’s a pretty lame party.

If you turned on the Closed Captions, you may notice that the transcript is significantly different from what we ended up with for each round. That’s because each time a video is uploaded, the computer listens to the audio and interprets it fresh. So, even if you upload essentially the same audio, if one small thing changes in your video, the transcript will change, sometimes a lot. It’s just a phenomenon associated with the technology. Our scripts from rounds 2 & 3 came from the actual transcripts that were generated when we uploaded those videos. Make sense?”

The Bro Code: Article 62

“In the event that two Bros lock on to the same target, the Bro who calls dibs first has dibs. If both call dibs at the same time, the Bro who counts aloud to ten the fastest has dibs.

If both arrive at the number ten at the same time, the Bro who bought the last round of drinks has dibs. If they haven´t purchased drinks yet, the taller of the two Bros has dibs.

If they´re the same height, the Bro with the longer dry spell has dibs. Should the dry spells be of equal length, a game of discreet Broshambo* shall determine dibs, provided the chick is still there. *Rock, paper, scissors for Bros…”

Hilarious Video: Josh Groban Sings Kanye West Tweets


American singer-songwriter, musician, actor, and record producer Josh Groban recently appeared on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, to promote a brand new fictional album called “Josh Groban’s The Best Tweets of Kanye West.”

With musical genius (and a little insanity), Josh transforms Kanye West’s idiocy into song.

Special thanks to my friend, Julie Frye Sanders, for sharing this video. :)
