Blob for 6/13/12

Laughmaster’s BLOB (Big Load Of Babble)

Well I have not posted in a little while so I thought I would just stop in and say hello.  Something interesting happened tot he site recently.  Well not directly to the site, but to me I suppose.  I was approached by a advertising company saying they had a client interested in advertising on my site.   Well I exchanged several e-mails with this so-called company.  But I did my research and they seemed to not have a very good track record of paying people when they said they would and so-forth.  So I decided to tell them off in my last e-mail.  But I wanted to go a step beyond this.  Since it was a British company I looked up British slang insults and picked 3 that I like for my e-mail.  I think the e-mail was quite nice.  What really made me mad was that towards the end they told me “I forwarded your site to our technical department and they found an advertiser for your site.)  But they started the contact saying they already had a company.  Then when they showed me what company it was it turned out to be a gambling site written completely in Swedish!  How does a Swedish written gambling site have anything in common with an English written humor site?

 

Well that is all I am going to write tonight.  I am going to leave you with a small piece of trivia.

 

There was a telephone booth in the middle of the Mojave Desert, miles away from any roads or buildings.

The Mojave phone booth was a phone booth located in the Mojave National Preserve in California. It was in service for almost 40 years, despite being 8 miles from the nearest paved road, 15 miles from the nearest highway, and many more miles away from the nearest building. The phone was originally installed in the 1960s to serve miners working in the area.

Decades later, the phone (which was still in service) became one of the earliest Internet sensations. A Los Angeles resident discovered it in 1997, and wrote to a local magazine about it. The story went online, and the booth developed a fan following. People would call it all the time, and visitors would come out to the Mojave desert to see it, answer and send calls from it, and paint it with graffiti. The National Park Service had it removed in 2000, to reduce the environmental impact of all the traffic coming out to the desert to see it.
