To say I was watching television the other night isn’t exactly true, it was more like I was using the laptop in the living room and the TV was on in the background. My wife went to bed and handed off the remote and the TV just stayed on. After a few minutes the Democratic [...]

Needless to say, he ended up arrested for disorderly conduct, reckless discharge of a dangerous instrument and disrupting an educational facility. I bet he is very popular with the girls.

Me and Michael Phelps

Apparently Michael Phelps and myself are not all that different. I just read that as a child, he threw a screaming fit about getting his face wet during his first swimming lesson. Me too! Ok, so that about ends the similarities… Curse you “Swimmy the Clown”! If it wasn’t for him ruining my swimming career [...]

Wrong House Home Invasion Causes Scare in CA.

No matter what the subject matter, there will be skeptics, opponents and non-believers. Personally, I’d rather converse with like-minded people rather than try to convert opposing or narrow-minded viewpoints. You either believe in something or don’t, only you can change your own mind. Usually when you do change your mind it is most likely the [...]

Who Would Win a Fight, a Taser or a Stun Gun?

VS.

How many volt stun gun should I buy?
I’ve seen them online from 80,000 volts to 2 million volts. Does the voltage really matter? What is the difference between lower and higher voltage?
Is it the amount time the attacker is disabled, or the amount of pain he will feel?
What is the advantage to buying higher voltage [...]

Woman Mauled by Bear, Yogi has Alibi

There are plenty of good-natured bears in the world. Yogi Bear and Boo Boo do steal picnic baskets, but I’m not scared of getting physically mauled by them. Winnie the Pooh is harmless, unless you choke on one, Gummi Bears are fine. Who else? Paddington Bear and Corduroy from the children’s books are nice. Bear [...]

Seriously, If not now, then when?

Everyone procrastinates. No big deal right?
I hate mowing the lawn. More often then not, the grass in my yard ends up taller then it should be by the time I get around to cutting it. Oh well, no one is going to die over it.
I’m sure you can think of several things you should [...]
