Off-Topic / I'm Back
« on: April 09, 2023, 04:14:16 am »Message ID: 1374973
Happy Easter!

I have returned from my self imposed 90 day hiatus. First time I've missed hitting the 30 posts a month in quite a few years. I see that no bonuses have been awarded in that time off - so it looks like I didn't miss out on anything.

I hope everyone has been behaving themselves and all are doing well!

Greetings all,
I am going to be on a temporary hiatus from FusionCash. Starting a program on Monday which will require me to take an absence from all non-essential computer and smartphone activity which runs through early April. This will be the first time that I miss getting 30 posts a month in the forums since I joined in 2015. From a money standpoint, I'll only miss out on $9.00 in bonuses - if those ever do get paid up again. But the bigger sacrifice is the regular communication and check-ins with the rest of you regulars. So after today, you likely won't hear from me for a few months, but I'm still around and I'll have a lot to catch up on when I return.

Tomorrow my daughter and I are making a day trip to Pittsburgh to watch the Steelers beat the Browns and hopefully have help from Buffalo and NY Jets to gain entry into the playoffs. That seemed like an impossibility a few short weeks ago when they were 2-6, but now another non-losing season is easily within their grasp. So my last day of non-essential Internet activity is instead going to spent in a six hour car round trip ride and several hours at Heinz Field (I refuse to call it Acrisure Stadium - that just ain't right).

Enjoy your progress into the Spring months!
 :peace: :heart: :thumbsup:

Offers / Media Survey
« on: November 13, 2022, 12:59:34 pm »Message ID: 1372885
Just completed the $5.00 survey called Media Survey. VERY EASY - and I also discovered a new podcast to add to my playlist in the process that I had to listen to as part of the survey - a 30 minute commitment. Very fun and Very positive experience!

FusionCash / Survey Topics

I LOVE the surveys that are listed as "Fun Survey" then the very first question asks if you have or are the care giver for anyone who has: [and then it lists off several horribly debilitating and/or possibly terminal health conditions]. I click "none of the above" and then am taken directly to the DQ screen for not meeting the demographics they are looking for.

So are they saying that it is FUN to ask questions about these horrible health conditions?

Debate & Discuss / Political Surveys

I am loving all of these surveys that ask me over and over again whether I approve or disapprove of Joe Biden's administration and ask me who I am going to vote for next month and in two years from now. FC is actually paying me money to shout out "Let's Go Brandon!"

Off-Topic / Fall is officially here

I don't care about the Autumn Equinox or whatever it is... The first full weekend of NFL football and several days of northern Ohio weather in the 60's = the happiest season of the year for me.

Until the recent return of the TapResearch Surveys, I had pretty much given up on trying to complete the higher paying surveys on FC. Never getting any credit or the ability to complete the daily PTC and always getting DQ'd just soured me on even trying. But today after a few consecutive days of the daily PTC, I decided to give a regular survey a go. It was about my experience with convenience store/gas stations.

Early in the survey, they asked me to describe about a dozen different store brands in one word. You KNOW these stores! They are ALL the same - cookie cutter with the things that they offer and even the layout of their items. So feeling a little unoriginal and unmotivated to be creative, I typed in "convenience" about a dozen times for each and every option. How do you differentiate twelve different words for twelve different, but no so different, stores?

I completed the survey - about 20 minutes long - all very honestly and with thought to my answers, other than that one question (which I legitimately forgot about by the end of the survey). I got to the demographic questions and had one of those excitement moments! "I'm getting close to the end of the survey, and they are actually going to give me credit! W00t!"

Then I hit the submit button and it threw up a page that said there were some problems with some of my answers and I was informed I would be getting no credit for the survey!


I deserved that.  But really... How can you legitimately come up with 12 different one word descriptions of twelve identical businesses without literally making *bleep* up?

Payment Pictures / When did Payment Pictures become an athletic shoe forum?
« on: August 23, 2022, 03:27:38 am »Message ID: 1371474
You can tell that I haven't browsed this forum section in quite a while and I am looking for creative ways to get in my 30 posts (like that ship hasn't already sailed)... but why are there so many foreign language athletic shoe posts in here?

EDIT: Joke's on me! I forgot that posts to this forum don't count toward the 30!  :angry7:

Offers / Tips for writing a good college essay
« on: July 02, 2022, 07:22:05 am »Message ID: 1370526

Since this seems to come up quite often in the forum, I figured that there must be a demand or a lot of people who truly do not know how to write. good essay. So I thought I would throw my expertise into the mix for those in need:

1. Research your topic.
2. Write about your research in you own inspired words.
3. Accept the grade that you earn by honestly completing your own work.
4. Feel good about yourself.

Four easy steps (or better stated: three easy steps and one positive result).

You're Welcome!

Off-Topic / Celtics/Warriors... Who you got?
« on: June 01, 2022, 02:41:25 pm »Message ID: 1369922
As a Celtic fan, I know who I WANT to win - and I think they have about a 50/50 shot with that suffocating defense that they play. But those with a less biased and more objective point of view - who do you have winning the 2022 NBA Finals?

Debate & Discuss / Roe v. Wade overturned?
« on: May 03, 2022, 04:03:26 am »Message ID: 1369393
Breaking news... A draft of the Supreme Court majority opinion, which is not yet official, was leaked overnight. Cue the riots and the Karen craziness.

How do YOU feel about this one Donnamarg323? The TRUMP appointed Justices made this happen. Let that fact sink in and let us know what you think. No talk about 1/6. No talk about 2020 COVID. No talk about how Donald Trump is equivalent to Charles Manson. Let's talk about the babies that Donald Trump's SCOTUS appointees are going to SAVE... Can't do it, can you?

Support / Close this category?

Is there really a need for this "Support" section in the forum anymore? Or maybe it should be rebranded as the "Complaints" section. Or maybe this and the "Suggestions" group should be combined.

Off-Topic / New Job

After working for 24 years in the same office, I was recently offered and accepted a new job in a completely different field and start later this month. Hoping to get in at least another 15 to 20 doing bigger and better things.

Off-Topic / Corn on the Cob [part 2]
« on: June 20, 2021, 06:46:32 am »Message ID: 1358571
There is a great question asked elsewhere in the forum about the best way to prepare corn on the cob, but IMHO the bigger and more important question (one which I recently asked in a poll to my acquaintances on Facebook) is how do you EAT your corn on the cob: Do you eat it longways in a row down the cob - like you are typing on a typewriter, or do you spin the cob as you eat - like when you are first inserting the paper into the typewriter - completing that full circle before moving down the cob?

Both techniques are used in our house and both my wife and I believe there is a RIGHT way and a WRONG way. I am happy to say that my right way has far received the most votes in my scientific Facebook poll, but I now wonder if Fusion and Facebook agree.

So what say you?

Today I saw a man riding a motorcycle in town. He was wearing a face mask. He was not wearing a helmet.
