At some point you will end up at the at a fast food joint / shop / place whatever and they will ask you question. Some questions are done purposely to trick you into making the wrong decision or to confuse you. If your lucky the cute woman at the counter will ask you if you want to "take it out" or you want "eat in".

What they don't tell you is that if the joint / shop / place starts burning down (or suddenly is attacked by terrorists) you will have to leave your food behind. The food is even more difficult to carry if you were extra greedy and upgraded / super-sized your order. Really now how much free soda is too much?

There is also the thing about orange juice - I don't remember what orange juice tastes like. Yesterday I opened a fresh bottle / pack / jug of orange juice. Realistically I could not tell if it was spoiled or not because expiration dates on jamaican juice products are like juxtaposition. I knew the juice did not taste right but I could not remember what real orange taste like. I was thirsty so I drank it anyway.

  3. nobody posts comments on my site."

    The whole content posting thing is something I haven't quite figured out. Even if you make it extremely easy for a people to post content, people still might not post. You could try icons, or even putting the form on the actual page with a big blinking heading that says "Add Content".

    Its a combination of popularity, usuability and accessibility. you could post the submit content links on the front page of you website. There are various strategies that you could try. making links bigger or writing you url in the girls bathroom.

    Also take not of you google hits. if you notice that people come to a particular page repeated looking for something try to get them to do something.

    make somethings more obvious than others. Its a lot of trial and error, something which I'm still trying to figure out.

  4. and another thing you could do is have multiple sidebars that are specific to certain pages/sections. Instead of the same one on every page. context sensitive sidebar, short with only the important stuff on it.

    I could write a article on this but I'm too lazy.

  5. i'm getting lots of hits on 'belgian waffles' lately. also: 'american football'.

    content-quantum-social-dynamics are easy. it's the thinking up good content and writing a nice post about it, which is tough.
