I never got into social media. I have the pages, but I rarely post anything. My Facebook page has been hijacked by my wife with pictures of our kids. With Twitter I'll re-tweet something I find interesting, or maybe post a YouTube video but that's about it. I never created an Instagram or SnapChat account, although I hear SnapChat has been dying out. RateItAll though, I love. I have talked about this before but I have made a few very impactful relationships through this site. As more of an introvert, I guess it makes sense, because RIA allows for that individual interaction if you want, while still keeping your anonymity. I was telling Chalky the other day that it's not completely anonymous because I've met a few of you, but those I've met or had significant interactions with, I trust and am completely ok with sharing my thoughts with. Posting for the masses on Facebook though, I really just can't. I wind up second-guessing my posts, and then I feel like I need to engage with anyone who comments...it's just exhausting. I guess that's my introversion at heart. Sometimes I feel like I get a little braggy or self-indulgent on here, which I occasionally regret but I can deal with far better than if I were to post on Facebook; again it's probably because of the relative anonymity. Maybe it's that I sometimes crave writing or talking about myself which is really something I don't do much of during general conversation.

I have enjoyed coming back to RIA on occation to vote for political leaders or favorite fruit or vegitable, but someone appears tp be having a great laugh at my expense, finding more and more ways to mess with my mind. It's like that new show on cable called ''Wayward Pines'', where in the end it will turn out to be some sort of FBI experient on humans to see how much people can tolerate from one web site. They keep fucking around by taking it down for days on end, putting robot-defences in place, making it less and less easy to float from rate to rate. Lately it has taken the patience of Job to save a review, its like AOL has taken over and it is the 1980s again. They are still accepting advertizing here, but no one, I mean no one, is minding the store. What the fuck is with these people?

Original 10/26/12: Oh, ghee, I'm sorry. I thought the sign on the door said "RIA". I'm really sorry. I'll knock next time.

Bye.

Up Date: I'm not exactly sure what motivated my original review back in 2012.

But, now, after four days of down time for tweaking and improvements (of a yet to be determined nature), RIA is back up and running. Great news, eh?

First comes the ooooohs and ahhhhhhs.

Then comes the running and the screaming.

Physics: Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity
Simplifying the Metaphysics of Einstein's Special and General Relativity

Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity - Physics constitutes a logical system of thought which is in a state of evolution, whose basis (principles) cannot be distilled, as it were, from experience by an inductive method, but can only be arrived at by free invention.(Albert Einstein, 1936) When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence:
Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter.
(Albert Einstein)

Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity - Evolution is proceeding in the direction of increasing simplicity of the logical basis (principles). .. We must always be ready to change these notions - that is to say, the axiomatic basis of physics - in order to do justice to perceived facts in the most perfect way logically.(Albert Einstein,1936)Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended (as fields). In this way the concept 'empty space' loses its meaning. ... The field thus becomes an irreducible element of physical description, irreducible in the same sense as the concept of matter (particles) in the theory of Newton. ... The physical reality of space is represented by a field whose components are continuous functions of four independent variables - the co-ordinates of space and time. Since the theory of general relativity implies the representation of physical reality by a continuous field, the concept of particles or material points cannot play a fundamental part, nor can the concept of motion. The particle can only appear as a limited region in space in which the field strength or the energy density are particularly high. (Albert Einstein, Metaphysics of Relativity, 1950)

Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity - I hold it true that pure thought can grasp reality, as the ancients dreamed. (Albert Einstein, 1954) Physics constitutes a logical system of thought which is in a state of evolution, whose basis (principles) cannot be distilled, as it were, from experience by an inductive method, but can only be arrived at by free invention. The justification (truth content) of the system rests in the verification of the derived propositions (a priori/logical truths) by sense experiences (a posteriori/empirical truths). ... Evolution is proceeding in the direction of increasing simplicity of the logical basis (principles). .. We must always be ready to change these notions - that is to say, the axiomatic basis of physics - in order to do justice to perceived facts in the most perfect way logically. (Albert Einstein, Physics and Reality, 1936)

UPDATE: On the ups, you really can talk about anything you like here and some of you motherfuckers are about the funniest people I've had the good fortune to bullshit with. On the downs, there really are some mindbogglingly stupid people that come around, but we have ways of dealing with that, ranging from ridicule to the wonderful sounds of silence. Despite those sorts of idiots I still think we come in well above the retarded average of the internet. Thumbs up to most of you and middle fingers for the rest.

Costa Rica is a truly amazing country, and the homestay program is definitely the only way to really experience the tico way of life, as well as learning loads of Spanish. My stay with my Costa Rican family was the best time of my life - it was all I could have hoped for and more. I visited so many different places and made friends for life, I would recommend it to anyone wanting to experience a different culture and learn a new language. Keep up the good work guys... Liz :-)

Costa Rica Homestays was an amazing experience. I'm planning on relocating to Costa Rica soon. Cost Rica homestays gave me the opportunity to practice my Spanish. On top of everything this trip save me MUCHO dollars! Lol.... It's much cheaper than checking into a big hotel and feeling that hole burning at the bottom of your pocket. Steve and Jason were very accomodating and answered all my questions. Thanx guys and I'll be back in 6 months... Bill ;p

All in all, a pretty good site to visit, but I think people are too busy Facebooking and Twittering to give RateItAll a fair chance anymore. But I say if Twittering makes someone happy, then by all means they should Twitter.

We've stayed at this home twice in the past and are scheduled there again this April. The owner is very nice and accommodating. It's very comfortable and the pool and tiki bar are lots of fun. It's in an upscale area of beautiful homes. If you're a boater, there is quick access to the bay and ocean. Islamorada is our favorite spot in the Keys with the best restaurants and things to do. Can't wait for April! http://lodging4vacations.com/tropics/

Excellent location with a great view of the Canal. The Pool was the right size for our family and the Outside bar was Outstanding. The deck and dock were perfect for my 25' boat with ample room for my Grandson to fish for snapper. The Upstairs kitchen and living area with the high ceilings was fantastic. The downstairs bedroom was also great. The whole experience was truly enjoyable for my family.

RIA, how do I love/hate thee? Let me count the ways...
RIA could perhaps be described as a website with a split-personality disorder. It began in 1999 as a product-review site, more or less, but it morphed into a social-networking site, particularly after the dot-com bubble burst in 2000, and the hopes of the dozen or so of RIA's creators were dashed, and they trotted off to other things, leaving only poor Lawrence C. to run the site, although I see shroomwoman pop in now and then, and perhaps a few others...
As the social networking aspect grew, it slowly became the predominant feature of RIA. The problem with RIA has always been that, despite its claims, there are usually only a few hundred "regulars" who post with any consistency, and there are scores and scores of one-timers, the "Zorros" who come in, make their "Z" and get out, many of whose reviews are in the "This product sux!" category. The social networking aspect and the product review aspect often work against each other, making the site a tad schizophrenic at times. You will find a nice, thoughtful post about something (such as, say, a post by abichara) followed by a ranting post by some 14 year old (THIS CD SUX!!!!) followed by three dozen one-liner posts by the same person about 44 different anime shows you've never heard of.
My two cents: RIA should eliminate the product reviews. I know this was what the owners were hoping would sell the site for 4.8 bajillion dollars back in 1999, but no one cares anymore. They could turn it into a much better social networking site without the spare garbage they haul around, product reviews about many products that aren't even made anymore.

I love the site! You can generate unlimited rating lists in all applicable areas. I am using these lists in my blogging discussions. When the lists are not imposed on the blog post, any adjustments are easy to make, and they do not require blog posting modification. Also, the AdSense traffic I get from RateItAll is the highest among non-blogging sites, I am member on.
Long Live RateItAll! The highest grade possible!
