Holy moley! You can’t go wrong with 2008 Tai Chi masters in a sychronized routine!!! # Is it just funny to me that they have “tremendous national pride” having just gotten some astronauts in space a couple of years ago? # I’ll bet the Bejing Olympics fireworks blow Disney World…Continue Reading

No Polluter Commuter!

I’m not much of an activist, but I have taken action in support of our environment.  As of this past Monday, I began what I hope to be a consistent plan to reduce my gas consumption, reduce mileage on my car, and increase my fitness level.  I am currently riding…Continue Reading

The Guerrilla Tipster

The Guerrilla Tipster invokes his mighty right, passed down by the hands of the gods, to assert wisdom upon the unwitting. Today I find the signature of the Guerrilla Tipster upon the windshield of a car in the Barnes and Noble parking lot of Duluth: LEARN HOW TO PARK DUMB…Continue Reading

*@%! Road Trash

I’m driving to work this morning, minding my own business, when I notice a monstrous bag skulking across the road. It’s one of those clear cellophane bags; the kind you get at the grocery store to hold your vegetables, only this one can probably hold the whole “Fresh Foods” section.…Continue Reading

A Surreal Morning

Monday morning I began my day like many others. It was the first day of school for many, and it was the beginning of the work week for me. I also managed to get out the door in record time (related) that morning; the sun was just creeping up above…Continue Reading

I Wish I Bought Electric

Omnifi is Here!

I got my Omnifi bundle today from woot.com. I was so eager to get into it that I immediately opened the box and grabbed the documentation to begin reading. I knew I wouldn’t have a chance to play with the parts until much later, so I figured this would satisfy…Continue Reading

Über-Aggressive Lemmings

Those of you who know me, know that I’m a very tolerant guy.  There are, however, a few things that I just despise. On my way home last night, I encountered the most loathsome of my pet-peeves (maybe not the most, but at the time it was).  Having driven through…Continue Reading

Commuter Blues (Cont.)

So I didn’t actually get up in time to be at work at 6:00am the other day. I missed my ride and had to drive myself through annoying traffic. However, I was able to comprehend the alarm clock this morning and proceeded to get up and begin my morning duties.…Continue Reading

Commuter Blues

For those of you who commute, this is an all too familiar problem to you. It took me slightly more than two hours to get to work this morning. This is ridiculous, perhaps not to some, but to me. It’s only thirty-seven miles from my doorstep to my chair, and…Continue Reading
