Big Update to LinkWorth System

rawrLast night we made a pretty sizable update to our system that is significant enough to let you guys know about. Up until last night, we’ve considered listings as “sites” or “blogs”. Blogs were setup more for LinkPost where the rest of our products were geared towards a regular “site”. With the majority of sites being a blog these days, it was more of a headache than anything else, so I say with great pleasure, it’s all one listing now!

You no longer have to submit your blog as an entirely separate listing! (insert crowd raawr!) If you had a blog listing previously, no worries, we’ve merged everything over to the “site” side of things and this is how you list everything now. There’s no more managing your blogs or anything else that used to come with the blog listings, it’s all been merged with your normal site listing.

As we’re testing and really getting a good live run-through today, we’re on the hunt for any bugs or problems that we might have missed during testing, so if you see something, PLEASE click the “FEEDBACK” icon in your lower right-hand corner and let us know. Include errors or pages, as much detail as possible so we can quickly jump into action.

This is one small part of several big improvements we have on the list. Soon, our control center will be as simple as pie…something we’ve “ALL” wished for, for a long time.

Hypothetical – How Lonely Is Lonely?

Thanks to Christine for this hypothetical idea!

Let’s say you are so tired of being lonely, you just want to find “someone” to be able to talk to about things, basically a friend and a mate. The problem is, you don’t have the time to spend looking for that special person and what time you do have, all the wrong places bring all the wrong faces.

How about a hypothetical to help? 🙂

You are at a point in your life where you are ready to settle down and find a life partner. You have tried dating and keep meeting people that are nothing but a waste of time. While at a bar drowning your sorrows away, you meet a guy that says he has the solution. A 100% legal solution to cure your loneliness.

  • 1st Choice – You purchase a life-like doll that feels like a human, can perform some human movements and functions, like say comforting things when you get home from a long day of work. He or She also has some bed etiquette where depending on how you lay down in bed, it can snuggle up to you.
  • 2nd Choice – You purchase a ‘companion computer’ that is programmed to display your perfect mate. He or She; looks hot and loves to lay in bed with you when you sleep. The only problem is this is only an image, nothing physical. The program makes the image roll around and spoon with you, but that is the extent of it.

So it comes down to just ‘how lonely you really are’!

Hypothetical – Google or Yahoo

Here’s an interesting hypothetical:

You have a business that both Google and Yahoo are interested in buying. Both have given you offers, but each offer has a unique situation (obviously, this is a hypothetical!):

  • Google offers you $100 million dollars cash. If you accept the offer, you also have to agree to spend the next 2 years working on an oil rig in the middle of the ocean. You will not receive a single dollar until 2 years have passed while sitting on a chunk of metal out in the empty ocean.

    or
  • Yahoo offers you $1 billon dollars cash. If you accept the offer, you have to live the next 10 years in a 3rd world country where there is no electricity or running water. You basically live off the land and struggle to survive. Once you have completed 10 years, you get your $1 billion dollars and the option to move back to society.

Hypothetical – Hitchhiking or UFO Riding

Do you have any good hypotheticals that you would like to have included in our rotation? If so, please send them to admin [at] linkworth {dot} com. If we use your submission, we’ll reference who sent it and a link to your website, if you would like us to.

If sending a hypothetical, mention the word ‘hypothetical’ in the subject. In the email body, after your hypothetical, give the name you’d like to be published and the website address you want published. If you are unsure how to make a hypothetical, it is real simple, present a situation and give two solutions. The idea is to make both solutions gratifying but with some sort of consequence.

Ok, back to the hypothetical at hand: Hitchhiking or UFO Riding.

You are in dire need to get on the other side of the world for a serious family matter. You have just a few days to get there but only have 2 options of transportation. Both will get you there, but what happens while in transportation is unknown. Which would you choose:

  • You can reach to your destination by hitchhiking in cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats or any other land/water based vehicles. Flying is not an option. You will arrive in time, but the people you will come across will be some of the shadiest characters you’ve ever met in your life.

    or
  • You can reach to your destination being abducted by a UFO. No one knows what or who is in the UFO..violent, happy, peaceful, hungry, a complete mystery. You will be pulled into the spacecraft and leave the planet, maybe even the galaxy. You could be gone a million years, but they know how to time travel and will get you to your destination in time.

Which risk sounds more appetizing?

And don’t forget to send in your hypothetical if you want to participate!

Hypothetical – Land or Water

Here’s a good survival hypothetical. I’m a huge fan of Survivorman and Man vs. Wild, which made me think of this one.

Would you rather be stranded in the middle of the hot Amazonian forest for a minimum of one month, but you are stranded without any food or water? You would have to live off of the land around you, which is full of food and water.

or
Would you rather be stranded on a raft in the middle of the ocean where you are not rescued until a month into it? You would have enough water and food to get you through the entire ordeal, but you will have to ration yourself to ensure it will last the full month.

Hypothetical – Pick Your Unhappiness

We’ve been on more of a bi-weekly hypothetical Wednesday’s lately, so my apologies if you’ve missed them.

Today’s hypothetical revolves around something that goes on here at the office. I realized that when it comes to being healthy (eating and exercise), there are those that are good at it and those that are not. Which one are you? Which one would you want to be?

The hypothetical:

Would you rather be extremely healthy, in shape, basically in the best health possible and have a clean living, however, you have the unhappiness of never being able to eat all of the things you absolutely love to eat? You could only eat mulch from the mower, few fruits, shaved wood and dry baked potatoes, as an example. You’re just never happy with what you’re eating and find it difficult to deal with most of the time, but the important thing is, you are as healthy as you can be.

or
Would you rather be out of shape, eating anything you want, whenever you want, unclean living, however, you have the unhappiness of always wanting to be an extremely healthy person? You would not be to a point of life or death, more like 20-25 pounds overweight, maybe a bad habit, but the important thing is you eat whatever you want, whenever you want.

Pick your unhappiness

Hypothetical – Reality Show or Bust

This hypothetical has to do with Reality Shows. We’ve all seen them, loved them, hated them or just flat out ignored them.

You have the chance to be in a reality tv show. The outcome could make the rest of your life financially comfortable. If you chose to do it and actually win the grand prize, you would never have to worry about money again.

The flip slide would be that the world may view you in a negative way and your life would be hell due to the amount of negativity received from the reality show. There would be nothing you can do about it, once it’s done, it’s done.

Would you take that chance of possibly ruining your reputation with the opportunity of winning and making your life financially stable, or would you pass the entire thing up and keep things as they are right now?

Hypothetical – Perfect Crime

Quick hypothetical this week.

You have the chance to pick 5 human beings in the world and end their lives by any method you feel is necessary. It would be the perfect crime because authorities are on board with what you’re doing and will clean the scene up after you’re done and make it all go away. Would you take this opportunity and take out people you think are bad for the world, someone you just hate, someone due to religious beliefs or maybe someone that is suffering and it could be a gift? The only catch is, you have to write a personal letter to each family explaining why you terminated someone from their family.

Hypothetical – Fortune and Fame or Fortune and Lame

I think it’s safe to say all of us would love to have a fortune. Crappin’ on solid gold toilets that wipe your ass for you, sleeping on mattresses stuffed full of one hundred dollar bills for comfort or having the ability to buy ANYTHING in the world you wanted. We’ve all heard it before, money does not buy happiness, but I think we all agree it makes life more comfortable.

The hypothetical today deals with the type of filthy rich people that exist, well known and unknown. Everyone has heard of Bill Gates who’s worth $56 billion, but not many of us have heard of David Thomson who’s worth $22 billion. If you had the chance, which would you be?

  1. Receive $25 billion and have absolutely no life or notoriety in society, but you obviously live a comfortable, yet lame life.
    or
  2. Receive $50 billion and be the most famous and most recognized names in the world. You live a high profile life with everything you do being monitored by reporters and paparazzi. You really have nowhere to go for privacy due to your fame.

Hypothetical – Male or Female?

A friend forwarded me a link to a wiki site. As I was looking, I realized that females are often hit with a lot of options that men never will and it gave me the idea for this weeks hypothetical. Male or Female?

Let’s say you have the opportunity to experience life as the opposite sex. You would become an extremely blessed male or female in all areas that are possible; looks, personality, wisdom, brains, perfect body and all of the opportunities that typically come to these people. This would be for a minimum of one month.

Would you take this chance and if so, which sex do you think would be the most fun?
