Formal Education Scam in USA and World

Monday, August 29th, 2011

Here is a video I saw on youtube that I thought might be interesting. It is a bit one sided but I’ll admit that I do share SOME, not all, of the views in this video. It’s over an hour long and is more like a documentary talking about how formal education is a kind of brainwashing that is more expensive than it’s really worth. I think it makes some interesting points and it shows just how insanely expensive education in the US is getting for most people. I do realize that university can be important and necessary for many jobs, but it can also be a money making business based upon empty promises. Let me know what you think if you have time to watch it. Start it anyway and you’ll get the idea.

Best Stock Recommendation for 2012

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

I don’t have a crystal ball and I can’t really see the future but for the first time in a really long while I truly believe that there is an absolutely amazing stock to buy right now. It’s Kswiss.

Years ago, it was a boring tennis shoe brand. Now, Kswiss is the coolest brand of shoes. The company has changed the game with it’s unbelievable advertising campaign. I read that a guy who was the vice president of Adidas marketing started to work for Kswiss and made a viral video on youtube that I will link to. They are doing different marketing campaigns in different countries and all of them are pretty cool. I just found out about it last week and Add and I decided to put some money into this company. We really believe strongly in it and think that 24 months later, this stock will be up over 500%. It sounds crazy but it’s very possible. If you are at all interested in investing, check out my latest blog post, with some interesting article links and a pretty crazy video in there. I can’t promise anything but I really think these guys are super smart and this advice will make you money. There is some risk like with all investments but its super exciting and I would suggest buying it if you can afford to. Anyone from any country can buy this stock. It’s sold on the US and the symbol is KSWS.

Here is my honest opinion about the best stock for 2012.

International Investing Blog

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

I’ve always been really into investing. My dad and I used to talk about it a lot even when I was 8 years old. I find it very interesting. I find most of the stuff written about financial advice is just pure garbage. I just made some big trades today, at least for me. I really like Apple, Google, and Starbucks. I think the developing world is going to keep doing well with more and more people going into the middle class and buying stuff. Google is a whole other story as to why I like it. It dropped about 5% on the big Motorola trade because people got scared. I don’t think any analyst even knows if it was smart or not yet. I am writing a financial blog that I thought some of you might be interested in. It’s higher level English, and I don’t allow for comments yet, because of spam. We will soon though. I think most people are sheep. That means they can’t think for themselves and follow the crowd without thinking. I call the blog, “land of sheep”. Add made the cartoon sheep. You can comment here if you read it. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

McDonald’s TV Commercial from 1970′s

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

I was playing around on youtube and I found a Big Mac TV commercial from the 1970′s.

It’s pretty funny how they used to make commercials compared with now. The music is hilarious.

I’ve gotta admit though, I’m hungry after watching it!

Check it out and let me know what you think. I could share a lot of stuff if you guys enjoy my strange tastes.

Weird On Many Levels

Monday, August 8th, 2011

I’ve gotta admit, I was pretty surprised when I saw this piece of news…

I want to get some of your opinions on this. Basically, there is a Japanese Pop Group where one of the singers is actually a “fake” face. Some impressive video editors took the “prettiest” facial features from 6 different girls and somehow made a new girl. She looks pretty real to me. I’ll post 2 Youtube videos about this. The reason I picked 2 videos is that the youtube videos are made from some very strange news people. I think it’s really terrible how they make Japan look and they think they are being funny but they are not. This whole thing is quite strange. If you have a few minutes, take a look at the videos and practice some writing about your thoughts.

Note: To any Japanese people, I know these people doing the news are CRAZY. I’m just sharing because the whole thing is an “interesting” story and I want to hear the “world’s” thoughts about this. I know this is not a normal thing for your culture and I think it’s so stupid to watch western media trying to comment on other cultures when they have no idea about what they are talking about. It’s also important to note that this isn’t normal western media. They are just strange people on Youtube. No wonder there are so many misunderstandings in this world.

Here are the 2 videos. Check em out and comment below:
