Theirs a thing to everything. Twitter: Try getting Retweets of famous people, correspond with Youtube and Facebook and other stuff. Use lots of Hash tags and talk about topics that people will find if they search it. Remember the trending stuff, use that too. Just keep trying. On Facebook, Im not too sure. Maybe get your twitter followers to like and share you on Facebook.

Why is it so f*cking hard to become known over Internet? I've tried all kind of stuff to promote myself, my Tumblr blog, my Facebook or my Instagram in order to get followers and become known over Internet (don't ask me why I want that) but I've never came to a real success.

Do you realize how many other people are doing the exact same thing you're doing? You're like a needle in a haystack, you really need to be unique.

Twitter is great for that kind of self-publicising.

Also, if it hasn't already been suggested, try using Help A Reporter Out. It's designed to connect journalists to potential interviewees and is a great place to get your name/service out there. Of course if you just want the kind of fame that relates to you just being one of the few famous people on youtube, then you're probably sh*t out of luck unless you are really really unique.

I think it has something to do with creating sh*t that people want to talk about. Raywilliamjohnson got popular because he did clip shows with funny videos, people want to show their friends the videos, so they shared them with friends. ViHart got popular because she created fun little videos about math tricks, people thought these math tricks were pretty cool, so they shared them with friends. People like me aren't popular on the internet because all I really do is write forum posts on a few small forums, and make less relate-able videos every few months or so.

What I'm trying to get across is that you need a solid base before you can get people to care whether you write twitter/tumblr/facebook posts. Either that or your posts need to be so intelligent/funny/fun that people actually care, and that's very hard to do, and not many people are good at (even though lots of people think they are), and on the internet your doing it with millions of other people doing the same thing as you but very likely probably better.

how do you get radio signals from other country?

Like k^2 said, Ham radio is good for that. Software-defined radio is pretty cheap, but it doesn't cover as many frequencies out of the box as a dedicated radio would (this one's usually recommended if you just want to try it out, you'd have to search online for setting it up too, SDR# is good if you're on Windows), there's also this lovely applet, which lets multiple users listen to a big range of frequencies for free. (I recommend the AM frequencies around 700kHz, lots of fun European music stations in there.)

Can anyone find me a car sale site where a Nissan Silvia S14 or S15 with LHD (Steering and pedals on the left side of the car) is for sale? I've been looking and there is no Nissan Silvia S14 or 15 with LHD for sale or import to Europe at all. I appreciate any help.

I'll ask some of the car heads I know for you, what country or location are you in? PM me if you like.

Does anybody know if theirs a website where I can find people in my area, that are willing to join a club or group. I've put an add out on GumTree but Im not sure how much coverage I'll get. (I'm in Dublin, Ireland by the way) smile.gif

I've actually just looked online about this now a few minutes ago and apparently if you wrap you foot in a banana peel over night for a week it will go away, it's the same with duct tape too, so i might try it smile.gif

Duct tape works rather well on different kinds of warts, including veruca. It also helps not to re-infect yourself or others.

It really depends. Just put tape on it every day for a while, it could take a month or so. I used to put bandaids on mine and it took a while.

Okay so I'm coming with a personal related question. I have developed an obsession or I don't know how to call it that basically makes me think that I am liked by everyone. Let's give an example: a girl looks at me on the street and I'm thinking she did it because she thinks I'm looking good. Or a teacher makes me a favour and helps me with let's say... homework. I think that he's doing that because he admires me. So I mean is there anything wrong or I should change this mindset?

How old are you? Sometimes when young men go through puberty, their ego's expand in every which way imaginable. Hence, your feeling that everyone is doing things to help you because you're great.

Most young people get over this around age 20.

By the way, I'm helping you by saying this because you're a nasty, horrible person.

Thanks for the answer Finn, I heard banana peels get rid of them in a week, so I'll probably try that first

"Compound W" and "Freeze Off" are two over the counter treatments for warts.
Also you might consider a Podiatrist or even a GP for proper medical advice.

Sadly the s15 is RHD only. But you can get a LHD s14.. Nissan sold them brand new in europe, badged 200sx instead of silvia

Alright, I have been looking for the name of a game I forgot. It was a pc game and the concept was kind of like Blood Bowl. There were various races you could chose from (Humans, orcs, elves, etc), then you would buy players so you could play "American football", only difference was you could punch people n shiet.

Any savants wanna help? I remember playing it around 2008. It was not turn based.

EDIT Opa, found it! It's called Chaos League and came out in 2004.

Smoking is intentionally inhaling carcinogenic chemicals into your lungs. Drinking alcohol moderately is proven to be safe, and it is also far less addictive than nicotine. What a bizarre question...

Reasonable amounts of alcohol don't harm you much, long or short term.

Smoking will harm you, mostly due to the long term buildup of chemicals in the lungs, which for alcohol the liver can get rid of, but for smoking it stays there, unable to be removed and builds up.

These chemicals are bad, and ^ is one of the reasons why.
