Project Engage: How ACT uses Technology to put Political Power in the Palm of Your Hand

Project Engage is a civic engagement platform (see below) that aims to help restore democracy via 21st century technology. It will be funded, developed and used by citizens just like you and me. WeGotWorms supports this initiative undoubtedly and urges you to consider doing the same. Thanks for reading and/or watching.

Regardless of political beliefs, everyone can agree our government can be pretty frustrating these days, right? Gridlock, corruption, partisanship… you name it, our government has it. A democracy only works if people can participate and have a voice, a dialogue with their leaders. You would think that we had this covered in the 21st century, yet, we’re just not seeing that in America. We’re seeing a country where the individual has lost his/her voice and will to participate because of so many issues. And we think that’s a problem. Read More…

2050: It was called Facebook, and I was an Early Adopter

We all have Facebook…oh, you don’t? Good for you, rebel! Anyways, if you have Facebook it may be of interest to know whether or not you were an early adopter, fast follower, or a sheep in the herd. Whether FB is governing the world in 2050 or not, we’ll be talking about it to our grandkids the same way my grandfather brags about how he used a slinky in 1944, just one year after it was invented.

Facebook was launched in early 2004 at Harvard, and quickly was picked up by a majority of the student population. It then expanded to other top-notch East Coast schools, plus Stanford, and then steamrolled its way westward.

So the question is, with 1 billion active users today, where in the timeline did you jump in?  Read More…

Rarely is the question asked ‘is our children learning?’

Alas, an evolving list of some great office pranks.

Frozen Desktop: One of the most classic of office pranks, all this trick requires is an unprotected computer and a few minutes. Simply minimize all windows, and click the Print Screen key. Paste that into any editing program (ie: Paint) and then save the file. Now you can set that file as the desktop background. Next thing to do is hide the actual icons on the screen by right clicking, hovering over Align By, and then unchecking Show Desktop Icons.

How to Find a Business Analyst Job

Google, find me a business analyst job in Los Angeles.

Sure thing, pal…here’s 19 million results. Good luck.

F*ck you, Google.

We’ve discussed how to leverage LinkedIn in order to help your job search.  It’s always helpful to navigate through your own network first in order to refine your search. But let’s say you have a generic major, and you’re still at a crossroads for where to go.

Let us try and help. If you’re reading this blog, then I’ll make a few assumptions about you:

  1. You can’t read. This is good for you because we have terrible content. You’re probably here to search the awesome images we post. Continue on…
  2. You have an interest in technology
  3. You’re a gold-digging cougar hoping to brush up on your tech talk so you can snag a date with some stud like Melvin or Lloyd

That being said, here are our suggestions.

Macaulay Culkin has made the list of Top Search Queries for SWS

Melvin and I always knew we were special, but after Google Analytics showed us the top search queries for this site, we realized we’re so much more special than we ever thought.

Here are the top search queries that drove people to our site (we’re just so gosh darn proud and appreciative of our readership community):

 #5 swordfish computer

nothing to be ashamed of when people associate any Hugh Jackman+Halle Berry+John Travolta film with your site, let alone one in which Hugh hacks the mainframe with a gun to his head and a blonde in his crotch

.

.

#4 sweet ass

not too sure where this comes from, or where it’s going

.

.

#3 richie rich logo

we’re proud of this one, and for too many reasons to list. just look at that pic and try not to smile as you nod your head in approval at his face…

.

.

#2 office pranks

perhaps the most relative term on our site…btw, Melvin drinks his own pee. Not true, it was once, and Lloyd told me it was my favorite brand of low-sugar apple juice. Why I thought my favorite brand of apple juice would have been poured into the toilet for later consumption, I dont know. Don’t judge me, the Pabst Blue Ribbon was flowing that night like the salmon of Capistrano. [ChrisFarley]HORSE’S ASS!!![/ChrisFarley].

#1 fear boners

our new band name

.

Here’s a quick step by step on how to view this.

First things first, install Google Analytics if you haven’t. It’s a must. Next, you’ll need to install Webmaster Tools.

 

Then it’s simple, just go to the left navigation bar.

Click Traffic Sources >> Search Engine Optimization >> Queries

View the list of top search queries, complete with Number of Impressions, Clicks, Average Position, and the Click Through Rate (CTR) percentage.

 

 

 

 

And then be enlightened by the information Google gets for you.

We are, once again, so proud of the SWS Community.

Cheers to being awesome.

Cheers again.

And again.

How to Take a Dump at the Office

It’s a very challenging hurdle when u need to take a dump at the office.

In case any of you need help,  here are my tips:

1)  Try to take a shit when you initially feel your sphincter contracting. Waiting too long can build up a powerful and obnoxious sounding blast when u finally release

2) As you walk to the Jon, try to act as if everything is ok. Do not act as if you are about to relieve yourself of a 10 couric cannonball.

3) As you enter the Jon, casually scan the parameters to ensure the area is empty Read More…
