Welcome to Pixyland

At first it was just weird, but then I recognized people (metaphorically speaking) and all was answered. When seen alone, the Pixyland Peter Pan is peculiar at best. He looks a lot like the “Stewart” character from Mad TV. Among friends in costume, he’s much more naturalized. It’s more something you would see at DragonCon… Continue reading Welcome to Pixyland

Human Feces Powers Rwandan Prison

Disinformation \ Wired News Imagine eating food that was cooked using natural gas generated from your own human waste. Thousands of prisoners in Rwanda don’t have to imagine it — they live it. Prisoners’ feces are converted into combustible "biogas," or methane gas that can be used for cooking. It has reduced by 60 percent… Continue reading Human Feces Powers Rwandan Prison

BoingBoing Tidbits

BoingBoing was particularly informative yesterday. I learned of the Lapjuicer, a chair designed for lapdancers to make juice. I found the invention completely vile, but found myself wondering if there was really a request for that in the community. I haven’t asked anybody yet, but you can let me know if you have a fancy… Continue reading BoingBoing Tidbits

Population Limiters in Effect

I read Darren’s comments on an article regarding the cancer-causing agents in red meat. Not that anyone has said there are carcinogens in steak, but there seems to be some sort of accusatory game going on. I’m neither a vegetarian nor a carnivore, but rather what humans were meant to be; omnivores. Darren is too,… Continue reading Population Limiters in Effect

Creation Museum

I have mixed feelings about this one. The Answers in Genesis group is working to put together the funds for the “Creation Museum” in Cincinnati. On the one hand, it seems really cool that a creationists natural history museum includes such things as dinosaurs in their perspective. I may not know enough about creationism, but… Continue reading Creation Museum

Nature Abhors a Vacum

The mind is a vacum. In the beginning, it draws information unending. As the vacum is naturalized, the consumption is slowed until it finally stops. At that point, some informational back-pressure occurs and something goes missing. If you attempt to add to the mind at this stage, you only force something else out. This is… Continue reading Nature Abhors a Vacum

2005 and All’s Well

In spite of the latest horrid events and natural disasters, the new year is here and appears to be sticking around for the moment. The sky over my head is blue and mostly cloudless; certainly a sign of serenity here. We celebrated with Gainesville’s First Night event on the downtown square. The weather has been… Continue reading 2005 and All’s Well

Garden State – Zach Braff Blog

My wife and I saw “Garden State” recently. It was only playing at Phipp’s Plaza for this area, but it was well worth the trip. We both enjoyed the film so much. Zach Braff (Scrub’s) wrote and directed “Garden State,” in which he co-starred with Natalie Portman (Star Wars: Episode I,II). The most interesting aspect… Continue reading Garden State – Zach Braff Blog
