Another 10 ideas

I have a Fiverr page where I give 10 ideas for $5. I’ve had some success with it, selling 10 sets of ideas so far. Fiverr takes $1, so I actually only get $4 for 10 ideas. But still – most people’s ideas are a dime a dozen, or sometimes they will sell you their thoughts for 2¢, but mine are worth 50¢ each! Who else can say that?

Tobacco has been tied to humanity for millennia. It was (and still is to some extent) used in religious ceremonies of some Native Americans, partly because Continue reading

Sociology assignment 2 of 4

This is my second assignment for my Sociology class. Again, I uploaded it a mere 2 minutes before it was due.

Question: Go to a chat room on the internet and observe the dialogue. Briefly describe the chat room, and the discussion. Using the concepts in Chapter 4, how would you describe the type of dialogue that you observed? How did the communication compensate for the lack of nonverbal communication?
