Don’t You Love Pharmaceutical Warnings?

I know it’s not the usual type of thing I post but I can’t resist. My favorite part of any pharmaceutical ad is when they list the warnings, often in a different voice and said very quickly. It’s always amazing to hear the things one might risk...

Make Your Check Engine Light Useful Again

The problem with one light to cover so many things that can be wrong with a car is that you don’t know how bad it is, or even what you’re being told. A couple of months ago, our family van started having a problem that the mechanic assured me doesn’t...

My Mouse from Microsoft

As far as tools go, I am really picky. Really, really picky. For a long time I had the Logitech Touch Mouse M600 which is a lot like a wireless mouse with a touchpad on top of it. But it’s mouse shaped and full size. I liked it just fine. Unfortunately the...

Working Heterogenously

Every time I start consolidating on a single platform, something happens that completely throws that into disarray. With Ubuntu and other flavors of Linux, I would inevitably hit a point trying to use just that platform where something couldn’t be done well or...

My wife and I were talking about government a few nights ago and how the federal government’s checks and balances are partly in place to assure the rights of minorities as well as to prevent any faction, or minority, from having total control. When it comes to...

Dairy Queen Mess

We went to Dairy Queen last night, thinking that it would be cheaper than Jake’s Over the Top. Boy were we wrong. Not only was the blizzard cup a mess, and the look of the blizzard was that it was partly eaten, but it was roughly a third of the size of the...

Church and State

Let’s say for example that Congress passes a law that says that we’re going to give $10,000 to the First Christion Church of Pennsylvania because it needs repair and we want to save it as a national treasure. Ignoring any fiscal qualms with this,...

Lord of the Rings

What great movies! I was a little surprised to hear that it won best picture at the Oscars since it was such a great movie and they usually don’t pick ‘good movies’. I’ve seen Return of the King three times now, and it is just awesome!
