Craigslist makes 81M in revenue per year? Awesome. I’m not sure what your experience with Craigslist has been, but so far, mine has been up and down. Especially when I’m trying to sell something. For example, I recently sold my iPhone 3GS. I found a buyer very quickly and sold it in 1 day for a good price. I am also trying to sell a professional video camera, but I have yet to find a buyer. The only responses I get are from African Princes looking to buy my camera and ship it to their “friend” who’s in the US military in Guam. Sounds legit to me!
Check out some of the crazy situations that have occurred in combination with the use of Cragislist. And make sure to check out my camera for sale. Anyone in the Austin area looking to a buy a Sony VX2000? [Via]

Did you get here via Facebook? Of course you did because I spam your news feed everyday with this crap! Well if you want to stop going through Facebook you can sign up for e-mail notifications on the right side of the page. It’s over there somewhere, look for “Subscribe”…Okay fine, don’t subscribe! See if I care!
I do care, but I see your point. You’re not a fan of e-mails. You hate how they contribute to global warming and all that jazz. I understand, but while we’re on the topic of Facebook why not head over and “like” the Daily Infographic page? I mean, you don’t have to like like us, just as friends.
Okay, I’ll stop this shameless self promotion or my name isn’t @TimmyWillingham!……OK, I’m serious this time.
We all love Facebook. What would we do without it? I’d never know when the next Kappa Kappa Gamma party is and I’d also not know what you were doing. Not in a stalky way, more in a non-status update way. I do think it is weird that we broadcast our lives to hundreds, or thousands of people everyday. Who do we think we are — Brittany Spears? I know I don’t have a shaved head……but my brother though……. As for the good side of Facebook, it has been a breakthrough for local business advertising. Before it was crappy TV ads and fliers. Now they can beast up the side of our Facebook while knowing our likes and dislikes so they can personalize the ad. Kinda creepy eh? Usually I get ones on new CD’s from my favorite bands, but I did get one once that said “50 – 60 year old men are vitally needed for the police force.” I’m just gonna say it — they missed the ball on that one.
Facebook all day, everyday, 24/7, even Christmas Eve! (You know you do) [Via]

This infographic saved my life. I used to do everything with bottled water, drink, cook, brush my teeth, bathe, but now I know the truth! Only 60% of bottled water is actual bottled water and not tap water. Man, I wish I started a water bottling company. I could just pay for water from the city, then sell the water for a buck each — cha-ching! I wouldn’t be ripping people off, bottled water companies are already doing that.
My water would be as good or better than the cheating 40% of companies. I think we can all agree Austin has great quality water. I’m not talking to you, you fluoride conspirators. I think Donald Trump has his own bottled water with his face on it. I’d totally stick my face on mine. Think of it, every time you reach for refreshment, you see me! What could be more refreshing?
I think I’m going at this at the wrong way though. I’m supposed to be trying to stop people from using water bottles, not selling my own. I’m pretty sure when you don’t recycle a water bottle it travels to that gigantic sea-mass of tiny bits of plastic. The plastic must be trying to collect so much of itself that one day it can make some awesome transformer move and take over the human race. Or an equally evil plan of killing dolphins and other sea-life.
Yeah, so stop using water bottles. Go get yourself a Nalgene. They are only like 10 bucks and will last longer than you will. You can give it to your grandkids on your deathbed so they can brag about it at music fests. [Via]

I do feel special. Who else gets e-mails from African princes multiple times a day? Oh, everyone? Well those princes sure do hate the environment. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that every spam e-mail emits .3 GRAMS of Co2! Woah!!!!! If you want even more statistics I’ll give em’ to you! If the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull was to erupt for 133 days straight, it would be the equivalent of the Co2 emissions from spam for a year.
Personally, I never thought of the environmental impacts of e-mail. I still don’t know how e-mail equates to Co2. I guess it has something to do with servers and magic. I trust this infographic knows its stuff though. I mean, what can’t you trust on the Internet? Hell, I give out my credit card whenever I’m the 1,000,000th visitor to a site and it always pays off.
Should environmental organizations start lobbying against spammers? I wouldn’t doubt it if Greenpeace started to boycott e-mail altogether.
“HI! DO YOU HAVE A MINUTE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?”
“WELL FOR ONLY 14 CENTS A MONTH YOU CAN STOP 823521 E-MAILS FROM KILLING POLAR BEARS!”
Yeah, I can totally see that happening on my campus. All I ever want to do is go to class, but never without turning down the gauntlet of Greenpeace kids.
As we know, the Internet is a great tool for battling global warming, I never knew it directly affected our Ozone. I hope that in the long run, the good that comes of the Internet will outweigh the bad. For the sake of our planet spammers, I don’t want your fake money or your male enhancement! [Via]

I’m not going to lie, I was a Game Boy fanatic as a kid. Whoever didn’t play the original Pokemon is missing out on life. The blue version was the best by the way. I would always start a new game and make it about half way before someone would accidentally save over my game. That was the worst part. If you only had Pokemon in your Game Boy and no other games, no one else could play. I mean they could start a new game and not save, but there’s no way I’d let someone play my game. Or was the worst part going through that pitch black cave when you’re too lazy to get the Flash TM. You know what I mean when I say Zubats suck. Besides Pokemon, I tried to play Zelda, but was too stupid and young to handle it. I suppose I could give it another go, but I doubt college Timmy is much smarter than elementary Timmy.
Let’s put an end to our digression (yes it is also your fault that we got off topic) and let me tell you why your trusty Game Boy is losing a future. Don’t worry, your lousy PSP’s horizon doesn’t look too bright either. Mobile gaming, it was the past and it is the future. How many games out on the DS? 930. For the Apple app store? OVER 31,000! That’s a big difference incase you didn’t notice. Soon, if Nintendo doesn’t put some of its old games on the mobile app marketplace- I’m afraid it could mean the end of Nintendo’s mobile gaming empire. [Via]
P.S. I don’t really think Nintendo is Doomed, I just wanna get Zelda for my Iphone.
