Zune 30 Pandemic

Oh, good grief! I awoke this morning to find my Zune in a less than pleasing way. I was concerned that the number of times I’ve dropped the device had finally caught up with me and I was paying the ultimate price. However, I decided to check out what was…Continue Reading

Scientist Poop and the Epic Fail

Our son recently contracted Streptococcus within his person. We’re all familiar with such things, but the signs of this particular infection alluded us.

Threadless: “Seaside”

Federal Bureau of Inefficiency

However, the real world of federal investigative services is far different than the portrayal delivered through metaphor and…Continue Reading
