Please stand by…
Occasional, interesting, and random things seen here.
Sometimes nothing to see whatsoever.
A list of websites and programs that I find useful or interesting. Some of them I couldn’t do this website without the aforementioned programs and websites.
Due to drastic changes in life around here, doing a drudgy type front page is just not possible at this time. I will have to resort to more re-blogs and automation.
Just a brief F.Y.I. – I have become a single parent due to the death of my son’s mother. Now would be an excellent time to show any support through donations.
This blog has never been to be about my life, just an outlet for my news junkiness, and artwork. People want to know what they are supporting.
A single parent and this website would be what you are supporting.
Internet costs have gone up and up. I refuse to get cable and I am penalized for not bundling. You know the story.
SuddenUnLink now limits bandwidth usage per month, when I signed up way back when of course it was for unlimited. All that has changed. I have hit my cap 3 months in a row just trying to do this website, provide something interesting for people to see, and represent Central Louisiana.
I make plenty from WordAds to keep the LouisianaWorld.Net, and BattleOfOurTimes.Com domain names registered. I do not make enough to help pay for the costs of any streaming I try to do, anything that affects my bandwidth usage, etc. I do not make any profit whatsoever in the long run.
I just try to provide a wide range of Louisiana News from a wide number of sources, and also news from Pop Culture, Entertainment, Music, Art, Science, Astronomy, Gaming, etc., subjects that I find interesting, amusing, perplexing, informative, chuckle worthy, or make you O_o possibly, at times, many times perhaps. I don’t really like politics, but I try to stomach as much as I can to stay as informed as one who cannot stomach much can be informed about politics.
I am looking at all this garbage anyway, and I might as well tweet it, poke it, thumb it, or something. People like pushing buttons, copying and pasting things, poking things, thumbing things, taking polls, and having as many things spoon fed to them as possible, without a spoon.
I am not responsible for what some people might say on Twitter/Social Media that show up in embeds I use like RebelMouse, or Totally.Me. Hashtags like #Louisiana will sometimes bring up vulgar items into the stream. #Alexandria brings up a lot of stuff from Virginia, and Egypt. I’m waiting for #Tioga to pop up.
#CenLa = Central Louisiana #CenLA = Central Los Angeles
It doesn’t get much more vulgar than that. ;)
It does make for an interesting read.
WordAds help keep LouisianaWorld.Net stay open.

So let’s all freak out!

When you’re enjoying your extra hour in bed Sunday morning, spare a thought for what that 60 minutes might cost.
While some dislike the seasonal shifts of Daylight Saving Time (DST) for the minor inconvenience to their sleep cycles and busy schedules, there’s a more serious side to the scheme: the loss of an hour of afternoon sunlight when it ends—as it does this weekend—may increase the likelihood of traffic accidents.
“Darkness kills and sunlight saves lives,” said University of Washington Law Professor Steve Calandrillo, who has studied the effectiveness of different DST policies. “The question is ‘when do you want sunlight?'”
For Calandrillo, who advocates for DST to be implemented throughout the year, the answer is simple: more people are active during the evening, including kids, and the additional sunlight that DST provides helps provide drivers with the visibility necessary to see pedestrians. “At 5 pm virtually everyone in…
