Bananas Are Awesome

 

I've started a new blog network called AreAwesome.com. This is the second attempt after I sold my WTFcostumes site. This one will use subdomains to split all the different sites.

I've started with a pet project Bananas.areawsome.com which is a collection of funny bananas or bananas with drawings on them.

I also did the sexy women eating bananas gallery. Yep link bait but why not.

I doubt bananas will be a huge draw card like the costumes were but costumes.areawesome.com is coming.

Facebook Ads for Online Dating

Facebook has this great feature that lets you create run of site ads and it estimates the reach based on the data users have entered. This is also a fascinating market research tool as most people enter the correct data in on their Facebook account.

With 9.4M users in Australia registered (40% of the population) this is like a free survey tool.

Note: when there are multiple terms it combines them all. These are not &'s but OR's.

So I thought why spend money on dating sites when you can use Facebook ads to target the person of your dreams. I do have sad news for the guys though. We are out numbered when it comes to niche "likes". So don't be picky
 
facebook_target_ads_matchmaking.gif
Some interesting findings. Note: I took all of these from Australia. You should try in your country. There is no money in a goth dating site

Guys:
You are 343% more likely to get laid at a Star Wars convention than a Star Trek convention.

Ladies:
There are more male Justin Bieber fans out there than there is women to go around. This could be some very smart guys tagging their profiles for the impending searches.

Guys:
If you ever meet a female single Linux fan in person propose to her on the spot.

Ladies:
there are 431% more gamers out there with a proper education (and I assume a job) so you can afford to be picky.

The best thing about Facebook is you can really target the type of person you would like to meet. Once you have your target you create ads and go from there. Just direct them to your profile's custom tab explaining how much of an eligible partner you are. Im not sure anyone has ever done this but I think it's worth a test Here is a sample target I made up. I was looking for the type of girl you find in a Revenge of the Nerds film. There are 460 in Australia!
 
facebook_target_ads_ultra_target_dating.gif
The biggest surprise was that from 2.1M women aged 18-30 only 700k are interested in men :( Ouch!

Also with the Facebook suggested topics not many people like "afternoon sex" as it didn't come up in the suggestions. Oh if you are wondering 50% more women prefer "cuddles" over sex so make sure to mention that :)

Like when I spoke about Google Trends at Ignite, one you start looking at this stuff it's addictive.

Real Life Tower Defence

Here's an idea I would actually put into practice if I could get an arts grant to fun it.

Take the popular Tower Defence game idea and turn it into a real life game. This is like the Pac Manhattan thing a few years back.

Now I'm going to propose the idea that would work in a 1980's action/sci fi movie. You can swap out people actually dying for water based weapons and turn it into a "Wipeout" type show. Up to you. I prefer guns and chain saws. And if you want swap real people out for zombies. As no one cares that zombies die

Prison Tower Defence:
Elevator Pitch: Running Man meets death race meets tower defence.

It's a reality show set in a country with very relaxed civil rights. Prison guards have 1 week to set up their towers with a limited budget. Chain saws, guns, flame throwers they are all available. Guards work day and night until the countdown reaches zero and the gates open. Criminals race through and try and get past. Guards get money for each criminal they kill and the game start over again in a week once the first wave is done.

The way you turn this into a movie is that one of the criminals is an innocent man who was framed for the murder of his girlfriend by a corrupt cop who wanted her. This guy was the creator of the TV show Wipeout and Takeshi's Castle. He built the contraptions and is determined to escape the "Prison Tower Defence".

He escapes in the end only to find it all a dream.

So after actually writing it it seems morbid. Maybe a better way is to set up a park and have people run through the park trying to avoid getting ping-pong balls knocked off them by water balloons and hoses.

Google Trends for Sexual Content

Sexual Content
I've been checking Google trends and I found the following interesting. Sorting the results by country on these results is quite interesting. Bukkake is most popular in Italy? I feel sorry for Italian women.

Note: Milf is also the name of The Moro Islamic Liberation Front, a Muslim separatist rebel group located in Southern Philippines. This will explain the recent news covered of MILF.

I have no idea why blowjobs were so popular in the middle of 2005?

Sometimes real life if wierder than fiction. No more so than this Chuck Norris DVD player. It protects your kids from harmful content. I'm not sure if he steps up and roundhouses your kids in the eyes to do this but even if not, this is a weird ass DVD player.

See what else Chuck has to offer here at MAX

Smurf #2: Smurf-tacular!
Smurf #1: Yeah, I saw you leave with Smurfette.
Smurf #2: Oh man, as soon as we got out of the bar, she started smurfing me.
Smurf #1: Shut the Smurf up!
Smurf #2: Yeah!
Smurf #1: Right in the Smurfing parking lot?
Smurf #2: Smurf-Yeah!

Poo Clock

Tuesday i woke up late and had no time to do anythign before jumping into taxi to make a meeting for work.

This meant now my "Poo Clock" is out of alignment. Needing "Home Base" to feel comfortable, control of ones "Poo Clock" is important. Timing it for the morning and after work means you never have to go at work or any public place.

Missing a morning session means your body now gets confused and throws it all out of sync.

Hopefully the weekend will allow me to set it straight. It's like walking around with a brick in your colon.

Bean Bag Mystery

You buy a bean bag and fill when you buy it. 3-4 months later its looking a little sad so you top it up. Months pass and you buy more beans. And so the vicuous cycle continues.

Will my bean bag ever fill to a point where it never needs to be filled? I mean I understand that the beans get squashed but after a while (6 years) shouldnt the beans that are squashed fill the actual space inside the bag?? Or do the bean manufacturers have a sinister plot to make people buy their beans forever.

And if the beans do hit a critical mass that they never need to be filled can't I just buy pre-crushed beans in the first place and pay that extra cost, knowing I will never have to sit on the bus form the supermarket with a giant bag of beans under my arm?

Also what is the record for the worlds biggest beanbag? I mean theres a Guiness Record I think any seamstress could tackle. Forget beard of bee's thats too dangerous.

I was given a puzzled look by Rob today after he found out I had put a banana in the fridge and was planning on eating it.

I thought most people pee'd around the bowl, but the guy above me loves to shoot directly to the water. I'm pretty sure it's a guy or it's a women with a whole lotta pressure down there.

Or am i totaly under the wrong impression and the only person who pee's onto the bowl??

Old Medicine

I know yesterday I said expiry dates were for wimps but i was kinda worried When I saw the expiry date on my Migraine tablets after taking two of them

SEPT 97!!!!!

I can still remember mum buying them while I took the day off from highschool. I hate taking tablets, which explains why i still have 10 + tablets after 5 years. I just thought that medicine never went off, like flour. But now I check the flour and that too has an expiry date. Geez.

On a non related note if I was a robot I think i'd look like this

Coin Collection

Well the cat is out of the bag. My embarrassing secret is that I have been collecting the commemorative $1, 50c and 20c coins that I find in my spare change. I have some since high school. About 4 years old. (to think I've carted this tiny bag around with me for 4 years.

I keep it in a big jumbled bag in the cupboard. And I only keep one of each.

As if I couldn't feel any nerdier :)

The easiest part is pricing your collection. As the coins aren't worth any more than the decimal value on the coin :) And if you ever have to sell your collection (you really need to buy milk) then the 7-11 will accept market value.

The next train

Interesting that someone has archived the Voice of Cityrail

I do prefer the female voice, which they brought in for the 2000 Olympics.

The monitors they have now at the major stations, displaying what train is next, and the next two trains to come are no only a nice piece of design but a valuable resource for train goers. I wonder if this is standard in many countries? Or is Australia a leader in the field.

And speaking of questions where did tap dancing originate?

Hosting Solutions

Thinking of Hosting a Party?

Then this sit may help. And I thought a dedicazted server had to do with web hosting.

Here's a few tips I'd like to add when hositng a party.

1: Hide any photos of yourself in comprimising positions.
2: dont have the stereo outside if there is a pool
3: make sure you get twist top beers. Drunk people dont care what they use as a bottle opener.
4: Pets should be taken to a friends house
5: Your mums faberge egg collection should be locked away
