BidRodeo: The New Beezid Scam

Posted in Misc. with tags , , on November 15, 2010 by earlddyer

As many of you have read in a previous post about Beezid being a scam, here’s a whole new scam… wait.  It’s the exact same scam.

Bidrodeo.com is the same, horrible thing.  You go in and purchase “bids” and then use those bids to try and win incredibly cheap items.  One person can possibly win a great item, dozens of other people get screwed out of their money.  On the front page it showed a person had won a 16g iPad for only $22.97.  But he used 595 bids to win that item.  That means he actually spent AT LEAST $350 to win that item.  And that doesn’t include the other dozens of people who bid on this item USING BIDS THAT COST MONEY and didn’t win.  I also think it’s funny that they try to say that his 595 bids only cost him $169 when in reality if you buy the “deluxe” package it costs $340 for a package of 500 bids, $500 for 800 bids.  That doesn’t quite pan out to $169.  Such a rip-off.

I can’t believe that Beezid is still around and now this new company is coming in to do the same thing.  Who knows, maybe it’s the same company under a different name.  It wouldn’t surprise me.

Point is… BEWARE!

MachineGunSmith

Not sure if anyone’s ever watched MachineGunSmith in action, but here’s your chance.  This guy is pretty amazing at playing the drums.  Makes me realize how bad I drumming I actually was.

He’s in a band (or was?) and you can see all of his videos here… but this one is one of my favorite.

And FYI, he is using an electric system for those that want to say he’s not drumming because the cymbals and toms are the same size.

Best Ad… Ever

Every now and then at my work I come across an advertisement/listing for an item that is hilarious to read.  This awesome ad, however, has to take the cake so far.  I’m seriously considering selling my kidney to purchase this bike after reading it.

Click to make it big.  And enjoy…

Long Time, No See

RockiesYes, I know… it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything.  My only excuse is that I have been busy moving, had a week-long vacation, and really haven’t had a whole lot of interesting things to say.  But I figure I should probably come back and say hi… and maybe tell you about some things that have happened recently.

100 and Counting

Posted in Misc. with tags , on June 19, 2010 by earlddyer

So it’s official as of this afternoon. November 1st, 2009 I started going to the gym as part of a lifestyle change and weighed 377 pounds. June 19th, 2010 – less than 8 months later – I weigh 277 pounds. That’s 100 pounds…gone. It’s still hard for me to imagine I let myself get that big and that I’ve lost that much, but I know it’ll never happen again.

I’m having too much fun wearing old clothes.

Update:  Here are some pictures to sort of show you the transformation.  I still have plenty of room to improve, but I think the pictures speak for themselves…
