Want a good source of randomness? All you need are two things and a few easy steps!
- Some children, preferably 6-9 years old
- A busy road
- Bring children to play beside busy road.
- Wait for running child(ren) to randomly run into busy road while playing.
Remind me not to talk when at home.
Play me in order.
Yeah, first one to crack. Lost a lot in a short span of time.
There’s this thing, you see. Prodding a budding flower won’t make it bloom faster. Even if this flower is what you want and all the rest have bloomed, it’s not yet time. Let it grow on its own.
In the heart of a seed,
Buried deep, so deep,
A dear little plant
Lay fast asleep.
Wake! said the sunshine,
And creep to the light
Wake! said the voice
Of the raindrops bright.
The little plant heard
And rose up to see
What the wonderful outside
World might be.
The Little Plant, by Kate Brown

We sat in silence and jokingly, I suggested he just start over. If his life was bad enough to end, then he could end his life that he’s living and just starting a new one, in maybe Arizona or some far away shit.

You know those games on Facebook where people tag you and you have to answer a set of questions? It’s a great way for me to profile you a lot more. Combine that with other sources such as your interactions with other people within your social graph, some details I know about you, other social network profiles, I could profile you and your interests to a good degree.
Bonus points because you’re voluntarily giving that away.
It’s nothing new. Facebook, Google, and Twitter (but not limited to) does that in their analytics anyway, only with richer sources of information. That includes things that you click, and items being generally interacted with.
