Delinking the internet and relinking the brain

This is a topic that’s been on my mind for a while: Claire Handscombe has a commitment problem online. Like a lot of Web surfers, she clicks on links posted on social networks, reads a few sentences, looks for exciting words, and then grows restless, scampering off to the next page she…

Egyptian wants to sue Israel for biblical plagues

Sure, why not. We want compensation for the plagues that were inflicted upon [us] as a result of the curses that the Jews’ ancient forefathers [cast] upon our ancient forefathers, who did not deserve to pay for the mistake that Egypt’s ruler at the time, Pharaoh, committed,” the cranky journal…

Who says you can’t have fun playing with dog poop?

Bought the SKOOP-N-PAK in preparation for my visit to Colorado this May, where I’ll be semi-training with what I hope will be my future hearing dog. One thing I can’t abide by is the thought of cleaning up after the dog on walks, using nothing but a mere trash bag to grab that…

Psych going off the air? You know that’s right.

Psych could quite possibly be the best show I’ve ever watched.  After a quiet start waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2006, I was hooked after initially watching a few episodes out of sheer boredom.  I saw so much of myself in both Shawn and Gus that I couldn’t stop watching, and before I k…

Of mice and geeks

My 4 year old mouse (which came with my computer) finally bit the dust, so I’ve been using this opportunity to see if I can finally find a reliable wireless mouse.  I’ve tried the Logitech Anywhere MX, the M510, and will probably check out the M705 as well.  I’ve relegated my A…

Why I hate Long Island with all my heart and soul

Those people who talk about cities like Detroit being the worst places to live have clearly never been to Long Island.  Having been a lifelong native here, I can say without any shadow of doubt that this fish-shaped extension of sewage material, located due east of Manhattan, is one of the most …

Hey Hollywood, get off my lawn

My parking space at work literally turned into a Hollywood set today.  I couldn’t see who they were doing filming for, but I know it’s one of the primetime TV shows.  Kinda weird to go into work and suddenly be surrounded by a buzz of crew workers setting up spotlights, cameras, et c…
