I will EXPOUND on Tinder!

I will EXPOUND on Tinder, and accuse the Hufffington Post of plagiarism!

OK, Weird title, but fuck it (butt-fuck it?) Sorry,

 

Tinder is weird. A combination of social networking, spam and Match.com

Well who can blame us?

Well, at least half the planet i suppose. Tinder represents the kind of desperate, anti-social srcew-ball-ism that pervades American society: we want to connect, to get laid; but not leave the house. Welcome SPAM BOTS! And other, weirder individuals who actually use their Facebook page to garnish more extensive personal information before selling it to Russian and Nigerian spammers, scammers, and hackers.

Tinder may be the hot new dating app for regular folks and beauty queens, but it’s not without flaws. Cybersecurity company Symantec revealed in a blog post earlier this month that it had come across fake Tinder profiles, which spam people and direct them to an apparent porn site designed to take their money.
The fake profiles show up alongside the other photos of strangers you see once you’ve signed into Tinder through Facebook via the iPhone app. For those who haven’t used it, on Tinder you fill out a simple profile and post a few photos of yourself. You are then presented with strangers’ profiles one by one and you can swipe the person’s profile left to essentially “pass” on them and right to “like” them. If both people “like” one another they are connected through an in-app chat feature.
According to the blog post, the fake accounts only chat with you if you chat them first. Once they start chatting, many of them have similar scripts.

The bots use stunted language, and Symantec even found a few glitches in their chats.

Tinder doesn’t currently have any way to report spam in the app, and Symantec suggests that you just “block” any users who you suspect are fake. “We are aware of the spammers and have already taken precautions to prevent them from bothering our users,” a Tinder spokesperson said in a statement to The Huffington Post. “It’s safe to say that it will no longer be an issue.”
The fake profiles are not just there to annoy you, they’re there to take your money. Once they entice you with stilted flirty language, they invite you to videochat with them. The “girl” that Symantec chatted with sent a shortened link to a webcam site.

If you’re silly enough to accept that invitation, you’re brought to a page that asks for your credit card information. The fake “girls” on Tinder will explain to you that the site needs your credit card information to verify your age.
Once you give your credit card information, you will be automatically signed up for the sketchy webcam site’s premium membership. If you don’t read the fine print you won’t realize that you’ll automatically get charged almost $80 if you don’t cancel your account quickly enough.

Satnam Narang, Manager of Symantec Security Response, who wrote the blog post, gave the Huffington Post some tips for identifying a fake profile on Tinder. “Check to see if you have any interests in common. Of all the fake profiles I encountered, none of them shared a single interest with me,” Narang says. “This is likely because they created fake accounts on Facebook and did not populate them with any interests.” He also suggests that you read the short bio they provide. Many of them look suspicious. A few fake bios that Symantec encountered included lines like “will u do it right” and “just need a booty call.” Also, remember that spam accounts never send the first message.
Fake online dating profiles are nothing new. On one popular dating site, OKCupid, users can be chosen to become moderators. Any OKCupid member can “flag” any content on the site, which often includes fake-looking profiles and messages. That content is then sent to the moderators who each say whether the item or profile should be “deleted,” “left alone” or “can’t tell.”
People are likely less skeptical of profiles they see on Tinder, since most of the information on someone’s profile (name, photos, etc.) come directly from Facebook. In order to make a fake Tinder profile, one first has to make a fake Facebook profile with a fake name and fake photos. It takes a lot of work. To make, say, a fake OKCupid profile is simple. You choose a username, use a fake photo you found on the Internet, make up fake information about yourself, and you’re ready for a troll down waste-your-time avenue. After all, how do you expect to meet someone real if your own profile is fake?

PJ Britton Chronicles


Image

 

     It was late July, mid-nineties, and a classic PJ summer: party all Friday night, crash on the disgusting red couch, wake up Saturday and eat breakfast before heading to the beach. On this particular Saturday morning, on the way to breakfast, PJ saw a man dropping a turn-table onto a pile of junk next to some trash bins and pulled his silver Volvo onto the curb. We got out to get a closer look. PJ asked the man, “Are you throwing that away?”
    “Well, yeah,” said the man. “I’ve been meaning to fix it but I just don’t have the time.”
    “Oh?” PJ said, “What’s the matter with it?”
    “Its missing a needle, but other than that it’s in great shape. I hate to get rid of it. Do you want it?”
    “Well my brother is a DJ,” PJ said. “”I was thinking maybe he could use it.”
    “Oh yeah, well it’s a great unit. I really hate to get rid of it, I mean, if you could give me something for it I would let you have it.”
    There was a pause, then PJ said, “Well, if you’re throwing it away I’ll take it, but, you know, I was just maybe going to take it if you were throwing it away. Maybe my brother can do something with it, I don’t know.”
    “I really hate to get rid of it,” the man said. He looked lost, and then, somehow defeated. “I guess you can have it. It’s been sitting in my garage for years now… well, just take it.”
    “Thanks,” PJ said, grabbing the unit and putting it in the back seat. We drove off, and drove, and were driving over the green bridge when PJ said, “I’ve never been given such a hard time about taking something outta the trash before.”
    I laughed, “He had a real hard time getting rid of that turn-table.”
    “Well come on, ” P said. “”You’re throwing it out and then you want to haggle with me while it’s in the trash?”
    “But it’s a really great unit,” I said.
    “And I hate to get rid of it,” P said.
    “That’s why I’m throwing it away.”
    “But maybe you could give me something for it.”
    “Yeah,” PJ said, his head turned and his blue eyes beamed, “it’s a really good turn-table.”

    By the time we reached the Diner we were in tears. It wasn’t the funniest thing, but the timing was perfect; hung-over, pre-breakfast, and suddenly exposed to some guy’s lengthy personal relationship with a stereo component. We saw the years of frustration in his eyes; the lack of time; the cost/return analysis… and the inevitable conclusion that it was not worth it anymore ——so toss it. But then, the last-minute hope that some value might be re-claimed from this man who wanted to pull it out of the trash… a man who saw it’s potential, who might want to make the effort that he himself had failed to make for years——and even pay him for it… but then the inevitable let down of realizing that, no, even in the trash it was only worth its weight in freedom.

    Classic hilarity, but when we walked into the diner, reality set in. Sober reality. We were in ludicrous mode; sacked-out silly-stupid mode, but the patrons were stone-cold sober; eating eggs, drinking coffee, wondering just what crazy fucks walked into their world. We sobered up immediately.

    PJ ordered his usual; eggs over easy, bacon, toast, coffee and milk. I ordered the same but with orange juice instead. When the meal came he said, “Bretsky, try this milk.”
    “I don’t like milk.”
    “Just a try it,” he held out the chalice.
    “I don’t like milk. I never drink milk.”
    And so PJ took it as a challenge, naturally, and insisted that I have a sip of his milk. “Fine,” I said, taking a sip, and it was delicious. I guess it was the depraved, alcohol-laden stomach lining that appreciated the nectar; the smooth, sweet richness coating my insides. So I ordered one myself. P was right. Mother fucker, he was usually right.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Love Child, Baby Photo Revealed!


Baby Conan at 2 Years Old

Arnold Makes Love Child, The Sperminator Strikes Again

by Antenna Wilde

Shocking, exclusive photo of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child revealed! How this escaped the public eye is uncertain, for the resemblance is striking. Mildred Patricia Baena, mother of the child, has refused to reveal the boy’s name. However, a source has told Antenna Wilde that his name is, in fact, Conan “The Diaper” Baena. When asked to confirm the name, mother Mildred replied, “Absolutely not!” A denial so strong and swift that it seems, well, a little too strong and swift.

Long known for his aggressive sexual deviance, Schwarzenegger nonetheless managed to dupe his wife Maria and family for years, however, people close to the former Governator say that Shriver was privy to the misconduct, but turned a blind eye for political reasons. When asked what he thought of the new nickname, The Sperminator, Schwarzenegger replied, “I like The Sperminator, I think it’s catchy. No one can really get away with that name but me, you know, and I should mention that I’m coming out with another Terminator movie.”

What future relationship Arnold will have with Conan “The Diaper” Baena remains to be seen, but producer Ivan Reitman has suggested making a sequel to Junior, wherein Schwarzenegger will first impregnate himself, then give birth to Conan “The Diaper” as a thirteen year old clone. Critics argue the premise of a man giving birth assumes that the man not only has a uterus, but a vagina as well. Reitman countered the critics in a public statement released today, saying, “First of all, you can’t prove that he doesn’t have a vagina, that’s never been proven. Secondly, in the movie he would be a hermaphrodite, with a very long penis. Theoretically he could u-turn the penis and thereby manage to impregnate himself. As for giving birth to a thirteen year old boy, well, you know Arnold’s a big guy, so… it’s possible.”

Osama Bin Laden Alive!


Despite widespread reports of the death of Osama Bin Laden, eye witnesses report that the Al Qaeda leader is, in fact, working as head fry chef at McDonald’s Baghdad. According to sources close to the Jihad leader, despite his radical extremism, he has always retained a long-lived passion for fast food. Although far from Kosher—and certainly not Halal—this may just reflects the enigmatic nature of Bin Laden.

Previously President Obama refused to comment on whether Bin Laden did or did not have a relationship with Burger King between 1992 and 1995, but later conceded that special forces and CIA officials observed him eating a Whopper in Paris, France via satellite in 1991. Sources confirm that regardless of whether the beef was Halal, is was indeed confirmed to be genetically modified. Whether or not this fact will affect the martyr’s afterlife is open for debate.

Politics of Fear: Why the Threat of a Government Shutdown is Bogus.


by Antenna Wilde

We are being bombarded by it; the horrible possibility of a government shutdown if the Dems and Reps don’t come to an agreement soon. Horse-puckey! Just another technique by the power elite to scare the public into accepting another attack on public services for the sake of the rich. Republicans claim tax breaks for billionaires are necessary because they create jobs, but the only jobs they are creating are overseas.
The Dems and Reps are two sides of the same coin: Reps slash programs that benefit people like seniors, the disabled and education, while the Dems cry foul but do nothing about it. For decades the Dems have been accused of being spineless—and with good reason—but the real reason is to facilitate the power elite agenda under the guise of making an effort in the *two party* system. This is why the “negotiations” are always behind closed doors. Fascinating how these public servants can’t let the actual public know what they’re really saying, that would be unfair to the snakes in office, and they make the rules, after all.
There will be no government shutdown, it’s a hoax. At the last minute, Obama will agree to the majority of the Republican agenda for the same reason he did before: it’s the same agenda of the power elite, you know, those who put him in office. Sure, lots of people *voted* for him, but make no mistake: he wouldn’t have been on a ticket if he didn’t make a deal with GE, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Citibank, not to mention Big Oil and the military industrial complex. Funny how no one mentions cutting military spending while we spend ten times more than anyone else.
The government won’t shut down because the government makes the power elite their money by staying open for business. I’d love to see a government shutdown, just like I would love to see those banks *fail*, but it will never happen. Here’s a scenario that exemplifies why the government won’t shutdown: You own a business selling widgets, and the widgets are bought using public funds. You are in charge of deciding how many widgets are to be provided, and also how much funds will be made available for the purchasing of the widgets. Not a business too big to fail, just a *business* that cannot fail!

John Boehner says, “The American People”


In response to an overwhelming majority of Republicans being elected to the House of Representatives, the next speaker of the house John A. Boehner gave a speech so vague and lackluster that it was forgotten before it ended. He did say, however, that he would be doing “the will of the American people” and added the phrase, “the American people” more times in a single speech than any other speaker before him.

Opening with, “Across the country right now, we are witnessing a repudiation of Washington, a repudiation of big government and a repudiation of politicians who refuse to listen to the American people.” Boehner went on to say, “it’s clear tonight who the winners really are, and that’s the American people…For far too long Washington’s been doing what’s best for Washington, not what’s best for the American people.”

Afterward he dodged questions from the press by repeating “the American people” so often that it was hard to know if he said anything else. He also mentioned the American people.

“The American people spoke and I think it’s pretty clear that the Obama / Pelosi agenda is being rejected by the American people,” Boehner said, adding, “What unites us as Republicans will be the agenda of the American people. And if we are listening to the American people, I don’t see any problems incorporating members of the Tea Party…”

Dodging another question, Boehner said, “We’re humbled by the trust that the American people have placed in us, and as I said last night, our now job is to listen to the people and follow the will of the American people.”  

By the time Boehner said, “It’s pretty clear the American people want us to do something…” followed by nothing in particular, it seemed clear that he had no idea what the American people actually do want.
