Anon Videos, Punisher Dating, and Vaping Marijuana

Dear Brian,
What would the Punisher add as his best quality on a dating website?

He has a job, a vehicle, and his own place. After that, anything but a bathroom selfie would get him laid on Tinder, Match, OKCupid, etc. I don’t think he’d make it through the eHarmony screening process. It’s pretty selective…

Dear Brian,
What are 4 things I can do to get a guest blogging gig with The Huffington Post?

1) Write about subjects you know – If you’re a student, be a student. Don’t act like an expert on a subject you have no professional experience in. HuffP Post has dozens of verticals, and they love user-generated content from experts, so write about something you’re an expert on.

2) Create an Account – Huff Post is a community-oriented site. Creating an account and commenting on articles involves and exposes you to their community. It’s kinda like your resume or a frequent shoppers club.

3) Email the Right People – Most HuffPost writers and editors include their email address with articles because they enjoy being contacted. Several have mailing lists and are happy to respond to inquiries and pitches. Find the editors for each vertical by checking the HuffPost masthead. Their email addresses follow the same basic convention

4) Cite Your Sources – Cite everything by linking to the source within the article. A well-cited article is more likely to be viewed as professional and picked up. It also helps your SEO ranking, as Huffington Post is the most trafficked blog on the Internet. Be sure to include a high rez, black and white bio pic and short bio that includes a link to your social media profiles and website.

Good luck…

Dear Brian,
How can i see the image of my camera in my computer while I’m still filming?

I’m starting a YouTube account an I would like to see what I’m filming (me), while I’m filming. Like when photographers can see the images that they just took in the screen of their computers without the need to take the sd card from the camera to the computer. I want to use the computers screen as the camera screen. I don’t have the money to buy a PRO camera with the flipping screen yet, but in a near future I will do it, so for now that’s the way that I will go around this problem.
You need a webcam. These will typically come with webcam software that will allow the functionality you’re looking for.

Be careful with “professional” video equipment. For example, a GoPro can’t stream live video, even though it can be plugged directly into a computer. Check webcam. There are hundreds, ranging from $20-200, and most are designed to clip or stand on your monitor.

Dear Brian,
How do you know if a video released by “Anonymous” is really from someone affiliated with the group?

So far it appears that ‘anyone’ can claim to be a member. If this is the case that would mean the “Anonymous” label has zero credibility.

Why does news media continue to report on the group’s activities as if it were a legitimate organization making verifiable claims?

Everyone is affiliated with the group. It’s a collective (not an actual organized group), and the only barrier to entry is saying you’re anonymous. If the video says it’s from Anonymous, it’s from Anonymous.

Dear Brian,
How would I go about using marijuana in a nicotine vaporizer?

(how about hash oil)?
Vegetable glycerin is the same stuff used in over-the-counter cough syrup (along with a variety of other products, including fast food eggs). You can purchase it for $35 a gallon on Amazon. Vegetable Glycerin Food Grade 99.7+% Pure Kosher – 1 Gallon

Any drug can be dissolved in glycerin to vape in an eCig, and codeine syrup can be vaped straight out the bottle.

Hash oil is something different entirely, and you won’t be able to make a decent one at home. In dispensaries, it’s difficult to tell what’s hash oil, and what’s cut with glycerin, coconut oil, etc.

As a general rule of thumb, anything at 60% THC or higher is probably pure (minus pesticides, and other things not tested for since it’s not federally legal yet) hash oil. Hash oil percentages should be in the same range as shatter, wax, and other concentrates, as the extraction process remains the same, but with another added processes during curing to affect the viscosity so it can be absorbed by the wick.

Of course if you live somewhere like Phoenix, AZ, you can just go outside and melt any concentrate enough to soak into a tank wick.

All of this is assuming you want to use the same tanks and juice as a nicotine vaporizer.

Because just about every eCig battery and mod has an adapter to vape dry herb, and another to vape concentrates. Your local smoke or vape shop should have these (and if they don’t, another one in town does). They can also be ordered online overseas like all vape equipment, as none of it is made in America – just imported and branded.

Dear Brian,
How can medical marijuana dispensaries be assets to their community?

Many marijuana dispensaries already are assets to their community simply by existing. Just like any other business, look into philanthropic and community service projects. Since dispensaries are cash-only businesses, they have plenty of cash to pour into the local economy, charities, etc.
