Man caves…can we just stop?

      4 Comments on Man caves…can we just stop?

You know why I hate this term? The implication is that men are not as in charge of the things in the house as women. It also lends an air of a “clubhouse” where women are not welcome. When, why, and how did this crap start? I know men used to have a den. I have no idea what went… Read more »

That thing called duh.

      No Comments on That thing called duh.

Common sense isn’t common because it’s part of Darwinism. If survival of the fittest is the case, then common sense can’t be common. Only the strong survive. Unless insurance companies step in to protect the idiots who don’t have enough sense not to suck down some freon from a HVAC unit because they don’t want to pay out on ridiculous… Read more »

Is it just me, or is it crazy out there lately?

Yes, I know astrology is pretty much hokum, but I really have no other way to explain the crazy crap that’s been happening lately. First a freaking train crashes in Canada practically blowing up a whole town…OK, maybe just a very large chunk of it, still…awful.  And why did this happen?  It looks like someone forgot to check the breaks. … Read more »

Video games: Mario weeps for you.

I’m worried about the next generation of kids.  I read this article yesterday on Play4Real and it basically says they can’t finish the first level of the original Super Mario Bros. That’s world 1-1…they can’t get to the flag at the end.  My junior high school self scoffs at them. Seriously, what is wrong with these people?  The game couldn’t… Read more »

Equality for all: Single does not equal broken

In light of the recent developments in marriage equality, I’d like to address the concerns of single people. There’s nothing wrong with you. There’s nothing wrong with being single. I’m sick and tired of society pressuring everyone to couple up as quickly as possible and if they don’t (or can’t) then they are obviously broken. I’ve seen the most fucked… Read more »

Crowd, fund this!

      No Comments on Crowd, fund this!

Maybe I’m just a fuddy-duddy, but I don’t “get” the whole “crowd funding” thing. OK, I can understand if you are a starving artist and you are trying to create your art.  I’ll give you money because then I’ll feel like a rich patron of yore. And I love various forms of art, musical, visual and written. But sometimes I… Read more »

Minnesota: What Gives?

      No Comments on Minnesota: What Gives?

Minnesota, I’ve noticed something lately.  You don’t have helmet laws with regards to motorcycles.  It’s odd to see men with naked heads riding around on Harleys and various other makes of “hog” if you will. I mention men because I haven’t seen any women driving around without helmets. Regardless, while I’ve never been a fan of “nanny” laws that force… Read more »
