Stupid blog gadgets

with 3 comments

There seem to be many bloggers out there who think that the more gadgets they have in their blog sidebars the better. There are those blogs filled with dozens of bright and colorful banners and gadgets that it’s quite hard to focus on the actual blog content.

MP3 players are one of the lamest of these. They suck your bandwidth and can become a reason not to visit that blog again. To make the matters worse, the pause buttons of some of these players can’t be found no matter how hard you try. :/

And why would anyone put up a Clock gadget on their blog? Seriously!

And then there are those long FB fan page gadgets filled with lots of faces.

Even a big visitors count banner isn’t necessary. Okay, I have a small one in mine as well, but come to think of it, what would anyone gain from that except for some ego boost to the blogger himself?

Is this life worth living?

with 9 comments

I don’t see any reason why I should live, except for the fact that my family needs me. Let’s forget the family for a moment. What is the use of myself to this world? Atheism aside, why on earth did god create a thameera? Every human being is an unnecessary, dispensable burden for this world. Okay, not everyone, but most of them.

I haven’t lately been successful at anything. And as all other human beings, I’m constantly using resources the earth has to offer. Let’s put it ‘wasting’ resources, coz they aren’t being put into anything productive at all.

So where do all these lead to?

Is this life worth living? I’m still looking for an answer.

Please don’t slit your wrists!

with 8 comments

Please, please don’t! You never know how painful the first cut can be! And do you even know how to do it properly?

Even I don’t know! In my career as a suicide counsellor I have found none who knows how to properly perform a deadly cut, let alone slitting wrists. People are overconfident folks, they think they know stuff until they find out that they actually don’t. And just imagine yourself learning it the hardway: failed suicide attempt!

You’ve read novels and watched movies; so tell me how many failed slit-wrist attempts you’ve come across. And on the other hand, how many failed hang-by-rope incidents have you heard of? None, right? Hanging yourself might be old school, but it’s one of the most precise and respected methods to put an end to your frikkin life.

And I’m not asking you to hang yourself. Just don’t freaking slit your freaking wrists! Period.

A dictionary bookmarklet (or a search bookmarklet for that matter)

leave a comment »

So I was bored and wanted to test some of my javascript knowledge, I wrote a simple bookmarklet for searching dictionary definitions and felt like sharing. I’m a javascript noob, so it’s dead simple and is one of the most basic bookmarklets you can imagine. 🙂

I had trouble putting it as a link in wordpress, so go to this link and copy-paste the code as a bookmark.

The script first checks if you have highlighted a word in the current page and, if there is, searches for that word. Otherwise, it shows a pop up where you can enter a word to search.

This searches the Urban Dictionary, but you can change it to search any site you want by simply replacing the URL. Some examples are:

Google: http://www.google.lk/search?q=

Twitter: http://twitter.com/search?q=

Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=

Have fun!
