Protect & secure your Facebook account! [2FA]

Previously, I wrote about how to protect your Instagram account. Here is how to do this on Facebook!

Note: I would recommend doing this on the desktop version.

(Right-click and click on “Open image in new tab” to see them in full resolution)

Click on the arrow on the top-right and click on “Settings”

Click on “Security & Login” and click on “Edit” beside “Use two-factor authentication”

Click on “Get Started”

Choose “Authentication app” on the left and click “Next”

On your smartphone, down an “Authentication” app, like Authy (I personally recommend this) and set up an account.

On your authenticator app, scan the QR code and note down your backup codes and click “Next”

Your backup codes should be stored on paper in a secure location somewhere!

Enter the 6-digit code from your authenticator and press “Next”

And you are done!

As you have made a change to your account, you will need to enter your Facebook password to proceed!

This page now confirms that 2FA has been turned on.

Now when you go to log into Facebook on any device (Desktop, Laptops, iOS, Android, etc), you will not only be prompted for your password, but also your 2FA code.

[The JukeBox] S6E8 – Kero Kero Bonito – Flamingo

With the rise of the short-form video sharing servie, Tik Tok, (formally known as Musical.ly), it has allowed users to lipsync themselves with audio clips such as music pieces and audio recordings of people talking.

There has been also exposure of edited songs such as ‘bad guy but with a twist’ where they edit Billie Eilish’s ‘bad guy’ with a soundclip from Spongebob Squarepants.

One thing that TikTok has also exposed is indie artists with their lyrics being dubbed or acted out by users of the app.

A song called “Flamingo” from British/Japanese star “Kero Kero Bonito” was made famous to highlight that no matter what colour you are, you are ‘pretty cool’.

Here it is:

Lyrics:

 

How many shrimps do you have to eat?
before you make your skin turn pink
eat too much and you’ll get sick
shrimps are pretty rich


Nande aitsura wa pinku?
Doubutsu-en de omou to pinku
Tabemono de, sou nanda
Jitsu wa watashi wa tarako ga daisuki
Purasu ebi kani tabeyo
Pinku iro ni naru no
Dakara minna chigau iro
Ningen-de kanchigai
Shiteru yo ne


Black, white, green or blue
show off your natural hue
flamingo, oh oh owoah
if you’re multicouloured that’s cool too
You, dont, need to change
it’s boring being the same
flamingo, oh oh oh
You’re pretty either way


Tsuru no shippo shita ni mukatte magetara FURAMINGO〜
Imi fumei dakedo omoshiroi deshou
Niji iro ni somatte sekai
Kyou mo chikyuu no doko ka de
Ebi wo mushamusha tabete
Furamingo wa, pinku iro ni
Somatte ikuze 123!

Black, white, green or blue
show off your natural hue
flamingo, oh oh oh
if you’re multicouloured that’s cool too
You, dont, need to change

So about Wrestlemania 35

The following is a cross-post from my Wrestling site, SquaredCircle.ie

So about Wrestlemania 35… It was brilliant! Well, about 95% of it anyway. The only match that let it down was the Baron Corbin vs Kurt Angle match. Other than that, it was a solid way to begin the 2019/2020 season of WWE.

Without further ado, let’s have a recap of last night’s show!

WWE Super Show-Down PPV Predictions

The following is a cross-post from my Wressling blog at https://wressling.blog
Wressling.blog is a finalist in the Sports Category for the Blog Awards Ireland 2018.
More info about the event will be on my personal Twitter @PadraigFahy and of course my Wrestling Twitter: @Wressling_


From Melbourne, Australia, it is WWE Super Show-Down. These are my predictions for the upcoming PPV which is being shown at 10AM (UK/Irish time) on Saturday October 6th on the WWE Network!

The show is being held in the Melbourne Cricket Ground which normally hosts 100,000 people but I believe the numbers are close to 75,000.

With that said, let’s get into the predictions for this PPV.

WWE Money in the Bank 2018 PPV Predictions

This was originally posted on Wressling.blog

Hi everyone and welcome to my 3rd Money in the Bank PPV Predictions.

Once again this year, we have 2 Money in the Bank matches…One for the women and one for the men. There was supposed to be a 3rd Money in the Bank match for the Tag Teams but they scrapped that idea fairly quickly.

There is 4 men from RAW taking on 4 men from SmackDown (Yes, I am counting The New Day as 1) and the same amount of women for the Women’s match.

But what IS Money in the Bank? I explained this good detail in my predictions post from last year. You can read that explanation here: https://padraig.blog/wwe-money-in-the-bank-2017-ppv-predictions/

Also with this PPV, we will see the singles debut of Ronda Rousey against Nia Jax for the RAW Women’s Championship.

Anyway, let’s get into it. Oh and I am going to lob the MITB matches in as a Title Match.

NON-TITLE MATCHES
Singles Match
 Roman Reigns VS Jinder Mahal
PREDICTION: At this point, I am sick at looking at Roman Reigns…He is not doing anything and is basically filling his time until he can face Brock Lesnar again at SummerSlam. This is really a nothing match and Jinder is going to end up losing. I really doubt that Jinder is going to go far in this run of WWE.  Roman Reigns to win

 

Singles Match
 Bobby Lashley VS Sami Zayn
PREDICTION: After this week’s RAW, I started to question as to WTF WWE are smoking when it comes to making up storylines. An obstacle course…I didn’t know I was watching Ninja Warrior…but OK. This is going to be a squash match in my opinion where Bobby is going to flatten Sami. In my opinion, this match should have been on the kickoff show and not the SmackDown Tag Team Match. Bobby Lashley to win.

 

Singles Match
 Daniel Bryan VS Big Cass
PREDICTION: This is also a nothing match where Big Cass has to prove to himself that he can do it on his own in WWE without Enzo Amore. This is literally a David vs Goliath match and the build of this feud was pretty horrible. Daniel Bryan to win.
TITLE MATCHES
Tag Team Match for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships (Kickoff Show)
 The Bludgeon Brothers (C) VS Luke Gallows &
Karl Anderson
PREDICTION: I will never understand WWE…WHY IS THERE A 4-HOUR PPV AND YET YOU STILL HAVE TO PUT THE SD TAG TEAM MATCH ON THE PRE-SHOW?!??! This is insane and I feel bad for all involved as they should be on the main card. If anything, put Lashley/Zayn or Bryan/Cass on the pre-show…It would make more sense. There is no feud here. Nothing match. Bludgeon Brothers to retain!

 

Singles Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
 Seth Rollins (C) VS Elias
PREDICTION: This is the probably the best match that Elias has ever had in WWE. Seth and Elias seem to have good chemistry and the feud has been good, and I know that it is going to be a enjoyable match at the end of it all. Let’s hope it doesn’t end in a DQ if Elias decides to hit Seth Rollins with a guitar. Seth to retain.

 

Singles Match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
 Carmella (C) VS Asuka
PREDICTION: Well, after Carmella tapped out to the Asuka Lock, we can kinda see what way this is going to go. I have a feeling that Asuka is going to make this look easy. I have never been a big fan of Carmella, so it would be nice for her to pick up her first WWE Main Roster title. If this match is AFTER the Women’s MITB, I doubt that they will cash in on the same night. Asuka to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion.

 

Singles Match for the RAW Women’s Championship
 Nia Jax (C) VS Ronda Rousey
PREDICTION: Well, you don’t have to be a WWE viewer to know which way this going to go. Yes, Nia is big and strong but she ain’t a ‘Ronda Rousey’ and it is this star power that is going to allow Ronda to pick up the victory against Nia Jax. It will be a submission that allow her to get the win. Ronda Rousey to become the new RAW Women’s Champion.

 

Last Man Standing Match for the WWE Championship
 AJ Styles (C) VS Shinsuke Nakamura
PREDICTION: I shall ask this again.. WHY DOES HE KEEP HITTING ME IN THE DICK!? AJ…Please, just wear a cup because it is a ‘Last Man Standing’ match and he is going to low-blow you all the way to NXT. It is not worth it… Despite saying this, Nakamura is not going to win because I would like to see Styles lose it at SummerSlam…He is not ready to drop the title now. AJ Styles to retain!

 

Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match
 The Miz
Braun Strowman
Bobby Roode
Kevin Owens
Samoa Joe
VS Rusev
Finn Balor
Kofi Kingston
Big E
Xavier Woods
PREDICTION: Well, this always becomes the most difficult part of the night…Finding out who is going to win the Money in the Bank match. I have a really bad prediction on what’s going to happen here.

I think it going to be one of the members of The New Day and I honestly believe that it is time for Big E to go back our on his own and turn heel on the other two breaking The New Day up.

I know, I know…sounds crazy, but it has been on the cards for a while, so I could see it happening. If not, I would like to see Finn Balor winning it. (Not because I am biased, but just that he COULD be Mr. MITB) – Big E to win the Money in the Bank Contract!

 

Womens’ Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Charlotte Flair 
Alexa Bliss
Natayla
Lana
VS Ember Moon
Becky Lynch
Naomi
Sasha Banks
PREDICTION: Likewise, this could go to anyone bar Naomi. They wouldn’t allow Naomi to win the Wrestlemania Battle Royale and Money In The Bank (But hey, I could be wrong). The other girls all have a serious good chance including Becky and Charlotte (I smell a heel turn by the way).

Ember Moon is a recent NXT Call up and I feel that she may not be ready to be lobbed in the same pool as Ronda Rousey should she decide to cash in on the same night. Sasha Banks could gun for it as there is a bit of heel-ish work that she can do between her and Bayley.

The underdog for all of this is of course, Lana! Lana has been getting better and better in the ring in the last year and it would be nice for her to have a big of boost of momentum and could possibly challenge Asuka for the SmackDown Women’s Championship but will probably end up losing that match.

And that is my predictions for WWE Money in the Bank PPV. I will try to do my best to Livetweet this over on @PFWressling – But with scheduling, this may not happen (Or it’ll happen late)

Let me know who you think is going to win the matches and why!

WWE NXT TakeOver: Chicago II Predictions

This post was originally posted on Wressling.blog

Hi everyone and welcome to my predictions for NXT TakeOver: Chicago II.

There is 3 title matches tonight where the NXT Championship, Women’s Championship and Tag Team Championships are all on the line.

Non-Title Matches
Chicago Street Fight
Johnny Gargano VS Tomasso Ciampa
PREDICTION: This was a hard choice for me as both are really good and I can see both of them going to the main roster either now after MITB or Summerslam, both of them are fantastic! Johnny Gargano to win!

 

Singles Match
Ricochet VS Velveteen Dream
PREDICTION: This is going to be my ‘Match of the Night’ and the two of them will put on a great match together. I feel that Velveteen Dream could come up to the main roster after this match as he has served his purpose. Ricochet is just a fantastic athlete, brilliant spot monkey and he will do well in NXT and WWE. Ricochet to win!
Title Matches
Singles Match for the NXT Women’s Championship
Shayna Baszler (C) VS Nikki Cross
PREDICTION: Nikki Cross is ready to leave NXT to join Sanity and be on the main roster, but I suppose she wanted to have one last title match in NXT against Shayna. I absolutely love Nikki. Her little Scottish devilish heel persona really suits her well but I do not see her claiming the title. Shayna to retain.

 

Tag Team Match for the NXT Tag Team Championship
The Undisputed ERA (C) VS Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch
PREDICTION: ERA are on a roll as one of the best tag teams in WWE of all time and they are only in NXT!! With their superb match at NXT Takeover New Orleans against AoP and Pete Dunne/Roddy Strong and then going on to defend them again at the UK Championship Tournament a few days afterwards makes them the best workers in the WWE. As for Lorcan and Burch, it is simply not their time but should still be a entertaining match none-the-less. The Undisputed ERA to retain!

 

Singles Match for the NXT Championship
Aleister Black (C) VS Lars Sullivan
PREDICTION: Well, this was a shock. Lars in a championship match. This monster is a wreking force in NXT and has become a literal monster and could easily go up against someone like Braun Strowman on the main roster. There isn’t enough of ‘big men’ on the main roster now since most of them have retired and it would be fitting for him to lose the match just for him to get to the main roster. He has done very well in NXT and I can only see him do bigger things in the future.
As for Aleister, there is no one that can stop him at the moment. Maybe EC3 or Ricochet at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn but this is a minor TakeOver in my opinion and he doesn’t need to drop it yet. Aleister to retain!

 

And that is my predictions. If there is any more matches announced on tonight’s NXT, then I will update this post with those matches and updates for this will be posted on Twitter @PFWressling where I will be live-tweeting NXT TakeOver and Money in the Bank PPV!
