Isi and I started today with kibbles this morning at 8:30am, following a good workout to start the work-week out. The most obvious challenge at the moment is how to meter the food properly. 5-6 cups of dry dog food is quite a lot now that I’m ingesting it. It also requires considerable water. I… Continue reading Kibble – Day 1

Tuesday Marks the Day
On Tuesday we really, really start the dog food experiment. We’ve delayed long enough and the energy that persuaded us to get into this was starting to wane.
Dear Sports Racer Fans
Ze Frank is making a cult and it’s called Sports Racer. The most ridiculous stream of knowledge and comedy interwine in a delicate fabric each day for a broad array of both old and new viewers. As a new viewer, there’s even a short segment at the beginning to welcome you. You people really need… Continue reading Dear Sports Racer Fans
Childhood Memories Crushed
A friend of mine at work asked me the other day if I had played with G.I. Joe toys when I was a kid. I had, of course, and quite fondly remembered them. Unlike many small boys, I did not indulge in morbid acts of violence against said heroes. No, I had a respect for… Continue reading Childhood Memories Crushed
In Memory of Douglas Adams (1952 – 2001)
Today is Towel Day throughout the Universe. If you know of and love Douglas Adams, you will wear your towel in reverence of his comedic brilliance. Pictures are everywhere, though Flickr is a good start. And here’s mine. More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker)… Continue reading In Memory of Douglas Adams (1952 – 2001)
The Wee People of Indonesia
I was impressed to hear in a podcast (SETI) recently that a new hominid skeleton was found on an Indonesian island from 18,000 years ago. It’s another win for evolution as this new form is yet another intelligent hominid and just over 3 feet tall. By now, many skeletons have been found as well as… Continue reading The Wee People of Indonesia
Adventures in Manhattan
I spent the greater part of this week in Newark, NJ where we have two offices – the other in Jersey City on The Hudson River. It was my first time to New Jersey and I got the opportunity to visit Manhattan for another first. I was prepared for more dangers than actually existed. The… Continue reading Adventures in Manhattan
A New Era
Today is a day I may well regret for a year to come. I introduced Balthazar, the three-year-old, to cheese fries. This marks the end of most any other food, I’m sure.
Nobel Peace, Only Weirder
A new new reader of Gradin.com, Donna Hadden, was recently so inspired by the Kibbles experiment that she wrote a poem about it.
Soylent Green is People, This is Not
Earlier, I said dog days are coming and I meant it. It has taken a while to get everything worked out, but Monday begins something a little different. A friend and I will commit ourselves to eight weeks of dry dog food-eating experimentation for the betterment of mankind. I know you have lot’s of questions,… Continue reading Soylent Green is People, This is Not
