A lot of people know how to write a resume and talk their way into an interview. But when they get into the make or break dialogue, they stumble upon tough questions. Below, is some advice on approaching the tough questions that interviewers like to throw at job applicants and the answers you want to say vs the answers you should say.
Why did you leave your last job?
Real answer: It sucked balls, got paid like a 6th grade concession stand worker, and my boss was a douche.
What you should say: I felt my talents and abilities were underutilized.
What are your biggest weaknesses?
Real answer: I can’t concentrate for more than five minutes, hate all forms of authority and tend to fall asleep at my desk.
What you should say: I’m a workaholic. I just don’t know when to put down my work.

The recycling of 1980′s culture just keeps getting stronger. If you don’t believe me head to Williamsburg, BK hang with some hipsters you will think it is the 80′s. Plus the jersey shore types are just a new version of the 80′s hair band rock scene. Laughable, but for some reason catches on. Either way 80′s rule and don’t be ashamed to get caught digging the jams. Here’s a few plus that Samsung phone commercial song in case that’s been stuck in your head.
Sick stache Oates!

Im sure you are aware or have seen that the Chilean miners have all been rescued after spending 68 days burried underground. I give them credit just for not losing their minds. My little brother would have gotten all canibal corpse on the rest of the crew based on his claustrophobia, which causes him to destroy anything in his path, including humans, that stands between him and not being trapped in any type of small space. Weird-O. Anyway, these guys only contact with the outside world was through a hole no bigger than the base of a 40oz of PBR. Imagine if everything you needed to survive and communicate with the world had to fit in this hole (thats what she said). Well this info graph tells us some of the things that were sent to the miners to help them get by during their time underground. Good thing I found this, I was wondering why that last guy who came out didnt have a beard, and people were hugging him. I figured he would smell like a babies ass if it hadnt been changed since birth, and it was 4.

Our friends over at the Oatmeal have done it again. This might be one of my favorite one’s they have done, just because of the accuracy of each ridiculous kind of photo people put up. If your a culprit of posting these kinds of photos found below, get it together immediately, please.
So apparently, Lady Liberty gets struck by lightning 600 times a year. Sa, Sa, Sa, Sixty times a year! (If you didn’t get that Great Outdoors reference never visit our site again!) Here’s her getting banged by a bolt from the god Zeus as captured from Battery Park City. The other day when it was raining like the apocalypse in Brooklyn, I wondered what it would be like to get hit by lightning. Seeing this picture makes me think it probably hurts like a bitch.
1. You see a “60 Minutes” news team waiting in your office.
2. You turn on the news and they’re showing emergency routes out of the city.
3. Your twin sister forgot your birthday.
4. Your car horn goes off accidentally and remains stuck as you follow a group of Hell’s Angels on the freeway.
5. Your boss tells you not to bother to take off your coat.
Zach sits down with Bruce Willis; one of the stars of the new movie Red, to talk about the 80s and some of the prestigious awards he has been awarded. “What you talkin bout Willis”.
An estimated 1.7 billion people live off the grid to varying degrees. In the United States, about 200,000 people live off the grid, which in this case means going without public utilities, without fossil fuels, or otherwise separate from The System. They make up for such abstentions through any combination of solar power, wind power, composting, smart architecture, makeshift shelter, gardening, farm animals, ingenious gadgets, and just generally being really, really persistent. Most of them seem to live in the Southwest (or the ones in the Southwest just have the biggest mouths.)
People go off-grid for various reasons. Not having to pay utility bills; reducing one’s carbon footprint etc. The 2007 documentary Off The Grid: Life on the Mesa shows a community of hippies, ne’er-do-wells, war veterans, drug addicts, rednecks, and teenage runaways living in relative obscurity in New Mexico. They generally live in cobbled-together shacks and abandoned automobiles. They have issues, but they make do by hook, crook, or .357 Magnum. Here is a preview of the documentary:
Living in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn for the past year has really re-inspired me to take a look at myself and remember what makes me happy. Art. Its something you can do alone, with friends, and for the most part, its free. I’ve seen some things that have left me breathless and walking away thinking, what am I doing. Why am I losing myself in the world of cubicals and reports when this is what makes me tick. Well no more. This boys moving on, starting new, and living life once more. This is part 1 in an ongoing series of some of the most amazing street art that Ive seen. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. I can only give credit to 2 of these works because the rest are just done to be done. The Joaquin Phoenix is by Shepard Fairey and the You Go Girl is by a writer who has been popping up all over the country the last year or so.
AMERICAAAAAA, FUCK YEAAA, que the Team America theme song. Being number 1 is always awesome, but not all the time, case in point.
