Jeff Nix's Facebook profile

Laffs at Life doubles as a test blog and my answer for the near-uselessness of Facebook.         Sticky Post – NEW stuff below

People said, “are you on facebook” and until Jan of 2009 I had NO idea what that even meant. Then came the business blog task, a facebook account and a logical next step…this practice blog was born. 

So how does Facebook *Really* make you feel?  I mean really… I’m 40 (something) and I don’t quite get it… admittedly it is a GREAT procrastination tool – and it’s interesting to see what my actual friends are up to (sometimes) but do I really care about knowing that one of my “friends” is making adjustments to the zig zag attachment on their sewing machine?  


While I do see a practical application for exploring the aspects for cross pollinating with business interests, for the most part, Facebook is just goofy. This inclines me to then elaborate on the goofiness quotient by elevating this aspect to its logical highest potential.   


Since I’m kinda lost on the real values of FB, I have now converted my FB profile into an occasional, if not daily posting place for my personal brand of off beat humor. So there.. that’s my grand purpose for FB… Enjoy!

The Guy’s manual for getting tough things done

Like so many nuggets of interest brought to us by the MSN homepage, here is a humoristic look at some typical life issues for us guys.

The video shorts cover the following man-centric topics; all sponsored by, of all things, grape nuts cereal.  

There are also some article shorts as well, plus some neat e-cards following the same humor line.

Dropping a belt size before a reunion

Lots of others, just look!



The end of the world

OK,  If you’re adverse to humor that sprinkles in the occasional profanity, you’d probably need to skip this one. Otherwise, Its brilliant.

From the Ridiculous new items, intended to separate you from your greenbacks department…

We have the amazing Rolling Razor.


Ok, here are the world changing claims:

Ok it has a great site, nice photos, good overall idea but the product.. Well, I “found” it on or about 5/15/09… Check back in a year and see if it is still as amazing as they claim.


If possible, The world domination bunny would give this two thumbs down!

Memories of Etchasketchistan

When I was a but a yute, whilst traveling the world during my dad’s stint with the international zig zag attachment association,  (IZZA)  we lived for a short while in small country of Etchasketchistan. It was there I discovered the unparallel wonders and unending joys of the dual knob wonder called the Dial O writer. Eventually, the toy gained world wide acclaim and the local government changed the toy’s name to Etch-a-Sketch.


From that memorable time spent with the amazing time consuming and not-so-educational mechanical inscription device until now I have been fascinated with the toy. In what will very likely be the crowning event of my professional career I am currently on track to become the President of the International Etch-a-Sketch Association in 2018


For your own Etch-a-Sketch skip through memory lane, you can play around with a new electronic but 63% realistic version at this link:  http://www.etchy.org/ 



There Are No Stupid Questions

But There Are a LOT of Inquisitive Idiots


As you know if you have kept up, I started a test blog to learn how to link social networking to business development. Recently, I have added some developments, as follows:


On the LAFFS blog, I’ve added a section called DEMOTIVATORS, inspired by http://despair.com/


You’ve seen beautiful photographs coupled with utterly ridiculous versions of impossible notions and platitudinous psychobabble; they’re ubiquitous in today’s corporate ivory towers… DEMOVITATORS turns that nonsense on its ear while elevating insensitivity to its logical conclusion. 


If you’re a hypersensitive ninny, you’ll need to thicken your skin to enjoy these pearls of real wisdom from our friends at despair.com.


I have also added a new business and general interest blog, http://jeffnix.wordpress.com/

It has now and will be expanded to include business as well as personal interest topics inserted as categories.
