    Default Charlatans, Hucksters, and Highway men

    There is a growing cohort of real estate and Nica centric pages in both blogs and YouTube items

    The "You tube of the day" place is not really the right place for some of these I think..


    This one is a guy named Paul - I have seen him going by for a few years. He is one of the sunshine and lollypop guys. He just strikes me as the Huckster category and the interactions I have had with him in on Da Fazebook he strikes me as an "Enclave" living sort of buyer and seller.

    But - He does have some data. And the data seems somewhat valid, and it is delivered monthly.

    For his example of "Leasing drop" he spins it to people buying while I would tag that more to people leaving.

    This is his May report and I did check out his January one as well.

    Lot of the travel pages that I enjoyed are now flooded by You Tubers, some admins have started cutting them off.


    I never got into You Tube much, like everyone I have used it to fix shit, but my internet was so bad for years that attempting to watch a video was beyond comprehension, Hell some days checking email was a chore.

    Any youtube video that has an ad in the middle gets an immediate down arrow from me. Age and living in Nic. have damaged my power of concentration so I don't tolerate idiots and hucksters as well as in the past.

    Product reviews are among the worst, they waste your time and are just fronts for sales commishes on amazon. I saw an interesting photography video yesterday where the man (not a "guy" as in youtube Newspeak) said most youtube photographers make more money from youtube than photography and many are better at marketing themselves than taking fotos. i have seen several who specifically spell out their income streams and real photography is the minor one. Doing a good youtube channel and presenting weekly is a full time job, not a lark.

    Other than that, water has been out in this part of the Broken Glass of the Segovias for over a day. No warning, no estimate of when it will return. Looks like they are replacing a major pipe. FOF flew in from the US yesterday. Welcome home, no shower!

    This cap'd fellow has been slathering it on for 6 or 7 months... He is a FuckleChuck... and I would call him a Huckster as well.

    This is the sort of bottom feeder that gives the Sandies something to point to.... He paces content on da JewToo but most of it is viewed (I guess) within the FB pages.

    And it's filmed in someone's bedroom or bathroom, and they have to whisper so the wife won't know she's married to a Chew Tuber.

    It helps a lot that you only have to deal with these people a small handful of times in your life.

    Some real gems from Fuckle Chuckie with the cap from a couple posts back..

    Potential client for consultation Q: What is the cost of Gas...

    Fuckle Chuck A: I don't know man but I just filled up my tank for $55


    Worked with a fellow from TN back in the early 00's - His favorite saying was - "Bill - It you payed a Nickle for that information would you want change?"

    Here is a new one although they seem to be only selling their social media views and experiances to get said views.

    Looks like a very white couple from northern Alberta who have done pretty well in life and have good google skills looking up facts.

    It _appears_ they have bought a house sight unseen in Nicaragua all though they do not say so explicitly.

    I probably give them 4 to 5 yrs before they cut bait and run. Reason - They seem logical and reasonable - Two things Niclandia is not...

    Some day we won't remember much of anything, and will live in a state of contented bliss

    If we find a kind caretaker who rubs Desitin on our butts after she changes our diaper.

    Like Joe, we'll look forward with eager anticipación to our 2PM ice cream and nap.

    "Come on, man!
    Strawberry again ?"
