Dallas city council is an intellectual black hole!

Dallas city council is an intellectual black hole!

I can’t let this go without commenting on it. For those who haven’t heard (and you are the lucky ones) there was a recent controversy on the Dallas city council over one commissioner[white] using the term “black hole” to describe the city’s central collection office… because paperwork goes in and never comes out. Another commissioner[black] [...]

Ebola, Arsenic, Peanuts, Cyanide… Killers! (whatever)

Ebola, Arsenic, Peanuts, Cyanide… Killers! (whatever)

Compassionate Disclaimer: Jesus loves everyone mentioned in this post. So what’s the deal with these lethal peanuts? Not to sound old and cranky, but when I was growing up there was never such a thing as a so-called “peanut allergy”. No student was ever punished for bringing a PB&J sandwich to school… and surely no [...]

So Much For The Laws of Physics

While returning from Cape Cod this past Memorial Day weekend we stopped at the Prime Outlets in Lee, Massachusetts. When I happened across a store directory I was a bit stunned… for as you can see in the attached picture the laws of physics cease to exist at these outlets!? While viewing the directory I [...]

Global Hysteria is Man-made

This Valentine’s Day is a cold one. Despite being Wednesday, my place of employment is closed… for the first time since I can remember. I just got done snow blowing my 150ft driveway and it took me twice as long as usual because the snow was coming up over the top of my Briggs & [...]

Nuke is Green… Duh!?

Nuke is Green… Duh!?

So one of the founders of Greenpeace, an environmentalist wacko organization that does more harm than good in more ways than I could possible scratch with a solid day of typing… and will henceforth be lovingly referred to as GreenBleach, just came out of the proverbial closet in favor of nuclear power. Why? Well… because [...]

Geekonomics Makes WarCraft Flow

Geekonomics Makes WarCraft Flow

A recent article in Wired Magazine (Geekonomics, April 06) asks “What if everything in the world were free?” At first the brief mental dream of this utopia may be alluring, but the inevitable consequences would surely be societal disaster.

Math x Science = Possible Headache

Math x Science = Possible Headache

They say the more you know, the more you realize you don’t know. This is very true. Take teenagers who think they know everything (for instance)… idiots, on marijuana. Then take some wise old sage at the end of their days and they’ll tell you that contentment of knowledge can only come from accepting what [...]
