Four Weeks Without Soap Or Shampoo

dubbayu_d_40 I beg to disagree (250 comments)

I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

Right on. I see guys like this loose their shit all the time because they think they're programmers, but unfortunately have limits when dealing with complexity. Oh wait...

Silicon Valley Could Be Heading For a New Stock Collapse.

dubbayu_d_40 Re:Yahooblr (200 comments)

You know Yahoo has positive earnings, right? It's net was more than a billion (EBITDA) last quarter.

In July it overtook Google as the most visited US web property and remains #1 to date (comScore)?

Desperate moves?

Silicon Valley's Dirty Little Secret: Age Bias

dubbayu_d_40 It's all about risk (375 comments)

Most of the successful people I know got that way to because they took a risk they were largely unaware of. These people were either psychopathic or young, both stupid. For every one of them, I'm sure there are thousands who suffered the consequences.

But as an investor, who would you go with? The crazy ones of course.

Newsweek To Go Digital-Only In 2013

dubbayu_d_40 Sad (110 comments)

It used to be a good source of info. I remember learning about Alta Vista from Newsweek. Oddly, and if I'm remembering correctly, they were profiling Leslie Nielsen who loved the search engine.
