    Just a guess, for a survey, that the best way to conduct a survey is to put it up as an ad on some sites asking someone to take a survey. You could ask questions about age, gender, how long they have been using the internet, occupation, etc. The thing that works well with this is that the people who click on it to take the survey will be the same people most likely to click on ads.

    I think the dumbest people on the web tend to hang out in the comments sections of YouTube videos and start a flame. So there is a great opportunity for baiting this target audience there I think.

    I have one site where 75% of visitors are females from age 17 to 35.

    I am getting bunch of clicks there daily, over 100. However its on serbian language
    so earnings are very low

    Anyone between the ages of 14 and 18 with a MySpace and a tendency to type either 1) as if they were texting, or 2) LiKe ThIs. They are usually the most gullible and tech-unsavvy (this, my friends, is not a word). This is just what I have realized through my years of experience on the internet.

    This is an excellent point.

    It's a puritanical impulse to look down on people who do things only to increase their own happiness.

    I am guilty of this myself. I hate malls and I hate people who shop in malls. They are buying overpriced crap that they don't need.

    But, it makes them happy, so it really is not morally correct for me to look down upon them for this behavior.

    I'm sure there are people who don't understand why I own some of the crazy stuff I own, but it's my business -- not theirs.

    Yes I am in shock with the bad purchasing habits of the society we live in Will.
    My own propensity towards purchasing is more along the line of Ebenezer Scrooge. (Which actually was inspired by the real life miser John Elwes. )
    I find no interest in purchasing take out food or buying that lastest gadget.

    Have you ever read this 18th century book called Lives and anecdotes of Misers [pdf]. ? There is a lot be learned of money by the people mentioned in this book, but some of it I would say is going to too far in the pursuit of avarice, even for myself.

    I haven't read it. My miserly impulses derive from a several factors:
    • Growing up poor
    • Wasting the first $1M I earned
    • A real lack of interest in the crap most companies are selling
