First of all, if there are any copyrights that belong to the Daily Mail, then I acknowledge them all, I would hate to ignore their fine journalism qualities!
I’m showcasing 15 screenshots of the Daily Mail at its finest, all the photos were taken in July and there were many more pointless articles that had either a lack of substance, spelling mistakes, or both in some cases!
Some of the stories are so poorly written, what ever happened to proof-reading? Their articles are full of spelling mistakes and missing words, mostly the online articles consist of this.. Maybe because the article is ‘virtual’ and can be edited at anytime, they feel the need to just publish the rough version? Is that how much they value their readers – we deserve the un-polished version?
One of their ‘apprentices’ shall we call them, is a woman called Samantha Brick, she rose to ‘fame’ after they published her article “women hate me because I’m beautiful”, since then, even after all the bad press and red arrows she has received, the Daily Mail now have her as a writer for them, her latest article is basically about why her best friends should not have the bad taste to honour her as a godmother!
Photo number 12, is a floater. They’re still in the wrong for publishing it, because its one of 2 things, scenario 1 is Miley Cyrus recently got some young dogs, now I myself know that excitable young dogs accidentally scratch your arms and legs, when my dogs were at that not full Adult but not Puppy stage, they are so playful, that they scratch. The Daily Mail claimed that the scratches on Miley’s arm were Self Harm injuries, they did not even mention they could be dog scratches despite the fact they were very irregular for ‘typical’ self injury cuts. But scenario 2, is that Miley did the marks on her arm, which was wrong for tabloids to cling to the ‘Miley is a cutter’ image, because it ridicules the person, rather than helping.
I hope you enjoy these photos!

What have I been saying all along? Facebook shares flopped yesterday, after being hiked up, they fell by 11%! The Zuck dropped by double figures in one go, surely THAT has to be an achievement all in itself? Because of that lovely big drop off they wiped off a tidy $11 billion off their capitalisation (whoops!).
From the day I heard they were joining the Stock exchange, I knew it was a bad idea, facebook itself as a social network, takes 5 steps forwards and 3 steps back, there’s too much emotional attachment to it, for example, they roll out a new feature, people hate it and they take 3 steps back, then they fix a bug and take 5 steps forward. There is a constant fluctuation in the social network alone, so why they put in on the LSE and the NYSE is beyond me.
Still, we don’t see any of that profit being rolled back in to Joe Public, if it wasn’t for us, Facebook would be another wannabe social networking site gathering virtual tumble weeds.
I have no training or experience in stocks and stuff like that, because to be quite honest, its all pretty much BS, so alas I am just a mere girl, but I can see a bad idea when I know it, you wouldn’t let a recovering sword addict visit the Japanese museum of swords would you? Well its the same with facebook, in Myspace’s heyday, they didn’t go hopping around in shares did they?
Maybe, just maybe, facebook might be up there with the big daddies Gold, Silver and Banks (slow and steady wins the race and all that jazz) in 10 years time and if that happens, I will eat the entire Oxford dictionary!
Who knows, maybe stock predicting is a hidden talent of mine, but I sure as hell won’t be honing in on that, until its my very last resort.
“You can put a makeup on a pig and put it in a dress, but its still a pig!”
So after all my anti facebook drum banging that I did, I reactivated *cues gasps*.. But I did it for a rather selfless reason, I went back to find out some birthdays and emails, oh and to status update about the beautiful Supermoon out there!
Am I disappointed with myself? Not in the slightest, because I wasn’t cowtowing the Facebook norm, nor was I attention grabbing by saying ‘this is the last time I’ll ever be online people’ I thought it was nice to talk about the Supermoon and if I ever do reactivate for good, its a nice post to have taken a break from.
Though, to set the record on the day that I decided to leave the facebook pirate ship, I also deleted my facebook app (clogs up valuable memory) and I’m quite glad to say, that the little blue f gremlin wasn’t sitting on my shoulder screaming ‘poke someone’ or ‘like me’ which I think is good going, which just goes to prove that if you decide to boycott Facebook, you won’t shrink up and die!
Have any of you gone back momentarily on your virtual word?
You learn something new everyday.
How true is that saying? Today, I have learnt something new, I learnt about pingbacks..
I kept getting pending comment notifications for these funny looking comments, so I just ignored them and deleted, I just got another one and I was like ‘sod it’ and clicked approve, turns out, I had been deleting pingbacks all this time!
I would like to apologise to all those whose pingbacks I deleted.
I’m still new to this whole blogging thing, but I promise not to delete another pingback!
Really sorry about this guys & girls!
To put me back at ease again though, would you like to share your totes awks online story? Don’t forget, if its really embarrassing, you can comment anonymously!
