Real Red/Blue Map Of Votes By County Shows Reality – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on August 9, 2017

I do not belong to any political party and was not a fan of Hillary Clinton. But I knew, and publicly stated, why Donald Trump would be the worst thing to happen to the USA.

The non-stop crisis, chaos, collusion and scandals are bearing it out. Every day he says something that makes things worse.

Almost every day something new and more shocking is revealed. His actions literally are the opposite of everything he claimed in his election campaign.

By now even people on Mars (the red planet) and endangered penguins in Antarctica have seen Trump’s Red/Blue map which he whips out all the time — even when he is asked about something else!

Yes, this Russia-funded Putin puppet won Electoral College with his message (of hate & lies plus Russia’s help).

But for the sake of understanding the real state of the union, take a look at this real counties’ voting map (from the Washington Post) shows voters’ choices by county. America is not as crazy as Trump’s Red/Blue map would make the world think!

The intense red spots are the areas where the fringe/lunatic/rabid people who love the man who lied to them are based in highest concentrations. I wish someone would overlay this map on a map of percentage of people with a college degree. Or a map of people and iQ scores, or SAT scores for that matter!

Not all of the people in these red spots are terrible. Many are simple minded, mostly undereducated folks, who are gullible to any snake oil seller’s claims.

Thankfully,, these people are not the sharpest tools in the shed. They are by no means the majority of the country. They, and their limited ability to admit to their mistake.

Their delusional, often moronic, statements that Trump is right next to Jesus in being a gift of God, show that Trump can fool some of the people all of the time. Don’t believe me? See this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YC6wc03OjhY . Also, https://goo.gl/images/LFvsCN shows how correct the late George Carlin was!

And that’s how Trump, and his supporters, like it. They embrace living in a world of delusion, hatred, bigotry, illiteracy and falsehoods that sound good. Some openly admit to not wanting to know real facts!

They are the ones demanding and expecting great things in life, like well paying jobs, without even being able to speak, read or write proper English. Many of these areas are the biggest users of ObamaCare, but yelled asking for the failed Repeal & Replace effort.

God save their children from growing up with such ignorance and stupidity. God save our country, and our planet, from the damage Trump and his cronies are doing to it.

When Being Boiled Alive Is Not Punishment Enough – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on August 6, 2017

I am sickened reading about this triple-murderer. Even a simple death penalty would not have been enough for his first murder!

Why was this man not fried for the first murder? Then he was let out and allowed to kill again…! Why was he not BOILED alive for that? But he was then let out AGAIN to murder AGAIN?

I generally do not support violence. But in this case I would not shed a single tear if the victims’ loved ones seek vengeance on the parole boards and judges who let this son of Satan continue living and being set free so he could continue taking lives. 

What do you think?

Using CVS App A Prescription For Invasion Of Privacy – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on August 2, 2017

Why is CVS Pharmacy trying to track #consumers’ #location even when we are not actually using their App? Sleazy invasion of #privacy and a #security risk! Shameful #UX design decision. Maybe the Federal Trade Commission can find out.

Spectrum’s DialUp Age Service & Stone Age CRM – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on July 22, 2017

Spectrum‘s DialUp Age Service & Stone Age CRM – IMRAN™

I had to tweet about the “Moronic #UXdesign POS #UserExperience Spectrum. Dead service.Stupid phone menu identifies my account from callerID but doesn’t know what service I have!”

Even a caveman era CRM system would know I do not get any shitty service from Spectrum other than Internet, which is that lame asymmetrical 200/20.

Yet, their retarded CustomerService number (20 minutes to get a rep) lists through their various services I do NOT have to ask if I am calling about those. Retards.

Spectrum is shitty enough to make me give sleazy Frontier another chance for the symmetric speeds.

Get Passing Lane Hog Drivers Off The Road – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on May 28, 2017

One of my pet peeves on the highway is the morons and deliberate jerks who have some genetic need to hog the passing lane even if the middle and first lane are empty for miles.

This phenomenon is common in all states but Florida literally has the worst cases. And in Florida the most egregious cases I have seen have been on I-4 near Orlando. With literally SIX LANES and no traffic I have seen a dozen cars late at night, heading west on I-4, each one in the passing lane and not moving over for traffic coming up behind and even signaling.

The Tampa Bay Times had an article about how a lack of highway patrol staff is reducing the number of speeding tickets getting issued. Yes, irresponsible speeding can cause loss of control but the worst hazard are the brain dead jerks who hog the passing lane.

IMHO, In My Humble Opinion,
1. A responsible driver driving even 20 mph over the posted limit in a straight line in the middle lane on a HIGHWAY with little traffic is not the problem, but is still more likely to get ticketed.
2. The brain-dead or fat-necked or lazy slob or deliberate jerk who does not move over from the PASSING Lane deliberately forcing people to go around on the wrong side is MORE likely to cause
– a) road rage and
– b) collisions of other cars) but can go driving like that for miles, but no one pulls them over. I literally have seen only ONE case of it. (Read that at the end below).
3. If the fewer officers available targeted these types of callous and obnoxious drivers with higher fines, it will have many benefits.
– a) revenue for the state
– b) target the real menace on the roads who endanger others
– c) make people actually use turn signals AND stay in appropriate lanes
d) create fewer hazardous situations
e) create fewer road rage reasons, and
f) will automatically be a deterrent even to the speeding drivers as it is human nature to behave when seeing someone else pulled over.

So, that one time I saw someone get puled over. A total jerk in a huge black SUV who was not letting me pass on I-4 near Tampa. He did not move over even when a Florida Highway Patrol car came up behind him after I moved to the next right lane. The guy did not let the cop pass either!

I never cheer any regular non-drunk driver getting pulled over for ‘normal’ non-aggressive speeding. But, oh, the joy, when the FHP officer had enough and blared his sirens to pull that prick over.

That LITERALLY is the ONLY case I have seen in 30 years of driving in USA. Please, Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, and Florida Highway Patrol Training Academy, target the real menace on the roads, the passing lane hogs!

HappilySingle™ vs Open Marriage vs Fake Monogamy – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on May 12, 2017

I’m happily single, never married. I would consider marrying the person I fall in love with deep enough but do not feel the need to be married for the sake of being married.

I also joke that I am waiting to find my fourth beloved so that I can marry all four of my future wives together. (Muslim joke).

The reason I created the HappilySingle™ brand was to ridicule the fallacy of society’s “Happily Married” marketing of an obsolete failure of an institution, marriage. 50% end in divorce as we all know.

I believe at least 25% others are having affairs. Another 12.5% are staying together unhappily for the sake of the kids, or out of fear, or because divorce would be economically impractical.

In my opinion, maybe 12.5% couples can fall under the happily married umbrella.

I would ask the married ones among you which category you fall under but for obvious reasons no one would be able to speak the full truth.

I do have dear friends here who are in beautiful open marriages. So, when I saw this article in The New York Times, I had to share it here and ask your opinions on both the institution of marriage, non-traditional marriages, and non-marriage relationships (that often last longer than real marriages).

Tell me what you all think.

(Still The) World’s Most Powerful Medium! – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on April 19, 2017

#TelevisionIn4Words is a trending hashtag on Twitter right now. I contributed to that stream with:

“World’s Most Powerful Medium!”
Yes, better believe it, it still is.
You get, as I tagged the post, “#media #news #entertainment #opinion #history #music #comedy #politics #sports #weather” all in one ‘box’!
How many heads of state, or sports champions, or politicians, or businessmen, refuse to be interviewed for TV and say, “No, no TV interviews, tweet me or ask me on FaceBook.” ?
Much that many of us complain about how TV quality sucks these days, very few spend hours daily watching TV reruns from the ‘good old days’. If anything, more and more global citizens are now getting and experiencing the power of television.
Its influence will get even greater as even greater network bandwidth and Internet technology takes global TV to every corner where traditional TV antenna broadcasts could not reach.
And, news flash for those who claim that TV is dead. When you watch video programming, dramas, sports, music, and entertainment on your iPad or smartphone, you are still watching ‘television‘ programming, even if you are not sitting in front of a television set.
Just because the shape and size of the screen change, it does not mean the medium has died.
Stay tuned… television imagery may become holographic or directly tuned into our heads one day in the future, but TV is here to stay. In many ways, it is up to the television industry on how much of the best is still to come.
What do you think?

Penny For Your Thoughts But Not Your Services – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on December 15, 2016

Some photographer posted in a FaceBook group about a model hurting their feelings by saying the photos they took (including location, hair, makeup) weren’t worth more than $10 each. I think a dozen people commented on that post. 

As I clicked to post my response on the original post it disappeared. Maybe the original poster deleted their post. I’m just sharing my “comment” here for everyone, as there will always be unappreciative and ungrateful clients in every field. 

I wrote: “Most people do not appreciate intangible expertise or subtle specialization or soft services nor put real monetary value on it. 

They’ll pay a plumber $200 for fixing a $100 leaky toilet but will have a heart attack paying $300 for cloud & technology or management consulting advice they hit you up for regarding their million dollar business.  

I haven’t seen the work the original poster did but assuming it was well done I’d say, go with the attitude, “Yes, the photos were worth just $10 each because the ungrateful model wasn’t worth more. 😋

😋

Driverless Cars Better Than Brainless Drivers – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on December 10, 2016

Michigan is about to approve cars without drivers or steering wheels on its roads. Some people will worry. But a driverless car is better than cars with moron drivers, especially the ones I see everywhere in the USA, but especially in Florida or in NY on the Long Island Expressway.

You know the types of drivers I am talking about. The ones with a genetic inability to turn their fat neck to look over their shoulder, the ones without a brain capable of processing moving over from the fast/passing lane, or the ones without a decent upbringing to know now to be @a$$#0¬3$ on the road.

At least driverless cars will signal when turning or changing lanes, not hog the passing lane like a fat stupid obnoxious pig, or drift between lanes while texting. And I am being polite. LOL

That’s Not A Phone Ringer, It’s The Death Bell For WindowsPhone – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on August 18, 2016

Microsoft Windows smartphone sales collapse. Down 76%!” reports Computerworld.

That’s not a WindowsPhone ringing but death bell of Microsoft’s phone platform strategy that you do not hear, because when was the last time you heard a WindowsPhone ring except for the expensive product placements on TV shows and in movies? 

It was a mere $8-10 BILLION write off which destroyed the lives of tens of thousands of Nokia employees. Please stand by for a similar LinkedIn write off in 3 years for about $30 Billion. They could have cured Cancer or built 1000 hospitals worldwide with that money!

Imagine me, a MacOS lover from Day 1, working at Microsoft (in strategy / cloud / consulting though) for 3 years. Ironically, I was already sick and tired of the 200 years old iOS UI (user interface) that has STILL not changed since it launched, and the UXdesign (user experience getting worse) from Apple in EVERY area. 

So I was actually happy to see Microsoft’s WindowsPhone interface as one of the few things they did not steal from, I mean, copy from Apple, and something actually better. But, the problem was not the technology. It was, and likely still is, the people of Microsoft.

It is a company with MANY smart people who made so many stupid decisions again and again, but never learned. A most senior leader liked some ideas I had to build a WindowsPhone ecosystem. He connected me with an Indian guy (not Satya Nadella) who was the VP responsible for WindowsPhone app and ecosystem development. I wish I remembered his name now. 

On each proposed step I discussed, he laughed and said, “We are Microsoft, We do not need to do that.” And, “Developers are begging us to develop on our platform.”

I wish I could have recorded that conversation for entertainment value alone.
