Dippin’ Dots are so 2000…E Ink is the future. Esquire magazine is making a bold move to use E Ink on the cover of their October magazine. What’s more, they snagged the rights to the deal from E Ink Corporation for a year. That gives them megacreds towards the potential future of magazine design. Remember… Continue reading Esquire, Magazine of the Future!
My son, at nearly 5 years of age, is big into the whole good vs. evil concept. He loves superheroes, Star Wars, and nearly every incarnation of fictional character one can imagine serving one of the aforementioned roles; good or evil. We played “superheroes” most of the day, Sunday. I was “The Oxidizer,” or “Flame… Continue reading Reading Boy
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

Today, for the uninitiated, is Christmas Adam. As many of you know, Adam came before Eve ergo today’s celebration. I’m not sure when in history we collectively decided to end our recognition of the first homo sapiens, but the choice to embrace this *truth and honor it for a day can be made. Since I’ve… Continue reading Adam & Eve
Since Halo 2’s substantial release into the wild, new phrases have entered the every-day. Among them is “tea-bagging.” Not something I’d recommend using in mixed company, but I’m guessing it’ll be on the sitcom’s soon. Wikipedia says: The term tea bag is also slang for a homosexual sex act that involves the scrotum (the tea… Continue reading Tea Bag Phenomenom
Once believed to have occured approximately 13,000 years ago, new estimates were made to push man’s (homo sapiens) arrival into North America to around 25,000 years ago. This changed yet again when John Topper discovered what appears to be man-made implements several meters below the current Topper site. The radiocarbon date testing pushes these items… Continue reading CNN.com – Man in Americas earlier than thought
