Sunday’s Entertainment Blog Post #4
Last Update: Jun 8, 2014
Hello my WA Family!
Yes it’s me Robert, aka boomergp08, back with another entertaining WA blog post for this Sunday, June 8th, 2014. I hope you enjoy it!
Practice! Practice! Practice!
When we create our websites we are in a constant state of practice. I know many of you when you first started were a little bit scared about writing content. I know I was long ago when I started writing my content for my eBay listings.
Yes, I write content for my eBay listings. There are too many people on eBay that just list what the item is that they are selling. BORING!!! When I list an item on eBay I always write at least a little content and if it is something like a collectible, I attach a little story behind it. Doing that really helps in completing the sale over that of my competitors.
But my point is that the more you practice at doing something the easier it gets. So don't let the fear of writing content for your websites keep you from trying and trying often. The more you write content the better you will get at it and the more you will be able to perfect it as time goes by.
For example, Danny MacAskill in his entertaining video below (click link above the picture), says that when he sees something new that he wants to do, he will spend the time trying it over and over again until he gets it right. This can be applied to anything in life, even our website creations.
Shall We Play a Game?
Okay now it is time for some interactive fun between you and your computer with another hidden Easter egg. In last week’s blog I introduced you to a few hidden Easter eggs within Google, well this one is hidden inside YouTube. So this is what you need to do.
I hope you remember how to play that classic arcade game called Missile Command, where you have to prevent the missiles from hitting the ground and your gun batteries? You would aim for and shoot in front of the incoming missiles so they run into the explosion and hence get destroyed.
What you need to do is go back to YouTube and start to play any video. After the video starts playing (not during the pre-ad) just type on your computer keyboard 1980. The video will slide down half way off the bottom of the screen. Above the top half will appear some text. Just click on the red text to start the game.
After the countdown the video will begin to play again and you will have to defend it. If too many missiles hit the top half of the video screen the video will become broken and stop playing and you will have lost. NOTE: Sometimes you will have to do this on a new video because it’s hard to initiate this on a video that you have already played and/or lost a Missile Command game to.

Some More Google Easter Eggs
REMEMBER – To click the “I’m Feeling Lucky” link on the right of the Google Instant drop down or the link on the main Google Home Page to get these to work.
Type in, google 1998
This will show you what the Google Home Page looked like in 1998, the year Google started.
Type in, google sphere
This will create a spinning sphere of the different screen icons around the Google logo. You can manipulate the movement and speed of the spinning depending on how far away from the center of the screen you move your mouse pointer. You can also bring in other icons by doing a search in the search bar.
