Bogus hits from a sponsored Facebook post

tcr! · Sep 14, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Facebook hits for sponsored podcast post

Earlier today I did a Facebook sponsored post for my diaries podcast. Now my site is being hammered with bogus hits.

Why do I think they’re bogus? Because between 12:07 pm and 12:51 pm I had 130+ hits from Facebook, all with nearly identical Facebook app versions (140.0.0.63.89) and iOS versions (10.3.3).

Not a single Android hit. Not a single browser hit with Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer.

And NONE of them had JavaScript or cookies enabled. That NEVER happens.

Download the spreadsheet if ya wanna see some suspicious activity.

Facebook is regularly caught inflating metrics so this doesn’t surprise me but it does piss me off.

And the hits are still pouring in. 😂 🙄

I saw that Home Depot has skeletal horses and T. rexes and I now wish we had a Home Depot nearby.

Stella, our black roommate (cat) is getting old. We’ve had to keep her indoors for at least 13 Halloween’s, because of evil mofo’s. She’s only killed one small animal this year, but it was unrecognizable. She flayed that smaller critter! For years we would find evidence of her handiwork in the bushes etc. These skeliti reminded me of her younger mass murdering machine days.

keamoose: maybe they’ll ship their horse skeleton to Canada.

jimi: yep, after some crippled Fat Cat with a BB gun the sister cats never go outside unless they’re on a leash.

No such luck, they’re asking for a zip code to even tell me about shipping. The Canadian site has a smaller pony version and a triceratops, but it looks like in-store pickup is the only option. Too bad; I’d have left that T. rex up year-round, although I might have had to modify it to reflect current science on T. rex posture. :P

“Sure, our T. rex costs twice as much, but the shipping is only $4.49!”

Hey, what if I got one of these and mounted it on a pike as a warning? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072M5RVNB/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_x_w8UUzb5DCYNE3

Gas cap flopping around

tcr! · Sep 13, 2017 at 10:27 am

Audio (MP3): 20170913 - Gas cap flopping around

Peeps, I was driving somewhere a few days back and was in a hurry. Of course. I’d stopped at the gas station a few minutes before and that had thrown me even more behind schedule. Of course.

So I was sitting at this stoplight impatiently, rolling my eyes at the car line up before me. And then somebody knocks on my driver’s side window. For a half second I thought it was the police since my license plates are expired and all.

But it was just a regular guy that wanted to let me that my gas door was open.

Way cool that it wasn’t the police but even more way cool that a complete stranger had gotten out of his car at a stoplight to let me know that my gas cap was dangling and the door was open.

There I’d been racing through town with my gas cap flopping around. Like an asshole. I had thought I’d heard something bumping but that’s normal if you drive a used car. Plus, I was in a hurry. Of course.

Again, pretty cool that the dude hopped out of his car at a stoplight just to be a better person.

So then the light turned green and he started to hustle back to his car. But then he stopped, did a 180 and said, “let me just get that for you.” And then he put my gas cap back on and shut the door.

Peeps, that is nothing short of America.[1]

It may feel like our world is going to shit but we as individuals are what make the difference. In less than ten seconds that guy made the world just that much better.

So why do I put this out there for the universe to see? A moment akin to me walking around with my fly open? Because it keeps me humble, it keeps me grounded. Keeps me from thinking I’m all that and a bag of chips.

But more importantly it’s a good reminder that there are way cool, selfless people out there. People doing their part to make the world a better place. People that we don’t even know.

  1. I dictate many things to Notes.app and for this particular post it heard “America” instead of “miracle.” I couldn’t change it since I’m me.

Red dumpster door

Maggie and I went on a covert mission last night so I could trash-pick this red door. With it being solid metal though I couldn’t even get it out of the dumpster. 😭

The early years of Curb Your Enthusiasm

'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' The Early Years: Crazy Auditions and the Art of the Cringe

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ The Early Years: Crazy Auditions and the Art of the Cringe

In an excerpt from the ‘Origins’ podcast, creator Larry David and the cast dish on the origins of the HBO hit ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ ahead of Season 9.

David: You know, when people told me after the show started airing that they had to leave the room for some scenes because they were cringing and they couldn’t bear to watch — it was like a horror movie — I had no idea it was having that effect on people. That was a complete surprise to me, and I liked it. I liked that they couldn’t see it. But I never really gave it that much thought. I was just trying to do funny shows. I never felt I was going too far. I felt I was doing what I wanted to see.

I didn’t realize that they improved the whole show. Leon and Larry, those were my favorite scenes.

Set your TVs, the new season starts October 1st.

Flowers don’t care

Flowers dont care

One thing that I really enjoy is that flowers don’t give a shit. They just keep being flowers regardless of what’s going on around them.

Happy Tuesday, perps!
