Temporary Hiatus Starts Now
So starting tomorrow I shall be on my way to the west coast of Newfoundland. Needless to say posting will be difficult without internet access, so expect some interruption in the post schedule. Many photos of the journey will be posted (or linked as the case may be) after I return, however, until then one will have to make do with whatever I manage to place in the queue and what other things line...

This guy is awesome, and yeah that game is really hard
With every high in life, there seems to be a corresponding low. While I’m yet to think I’ve found the low for this one, I hope it comes and passes before midterms. On a related topic, remind me not to turn off my brain next time. Or in the very least, not to be rudely jolted by reality when I turn my brain back on.
The Jury's Verdict
New theme. Yes? No?
Because That's How I Like It
Some people can’t live without the amenities that modern life provides. Other people can’t live without a way to get away from modern life. I fall into the latter category. Camping has always been a passion for me. This probably has something to do with the fact that my family went camping every summer throughout my cognitive memory. The last few summers, however, we have not...
It's a Wonderful Thing
You know that thing called the internet? You know they never charge you for anything after the flat monthly rate? Sure is nice that email is free, and the news sites don’t charge anything, but in order to get anything like that outside your webzone you gotta sacrifice an arm and a leg. Ex. Online music vs satellite radio: free vs subscription + monthly fee per station Ex. Google Maps vs...

Only in China
For once, China has beaten the west to the latest thing. After years of cheap knockoffs and lookalikes, they’ve made something all their own. Yes it is the “straddling bus” or, as I call it, the urban whale shark. Great in concept and price [at only $73 million], but here’s a question for designers. If each bus is to hold 1200-1400 passengers, that would make it about...
It's called the Specis Aurbry
Well, Spore may not be amazingly entertaining, but at least it acts as a very good time-sink.
Separate, Linked Thoughts on Page
Life is what it is. What that means is up to you. To have someone or something define you is good, but to define yourself through those things is better. This is not to support the materialistic nature of western culture, but rather an attempt to universalize the way in which people communicate their differences to each other. One was once defined by the job one held. Now one is defined by what...
You Own You, Until You Get a Credit Card →
azspot: For their part, the major credit-reporting bureaus—Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion—don’t seem to care much about the accuracy of their credit reports. In fact, they actually have a positive incentive to let ID theft flourish. Like mobsters offering “protection” to frightened store owners, credit-reporting agencies have recently begun taking advantage of the identity-theft boom to offer...
So Stay Awake While Driving
Every so often chunks of ice fall from the clear blue sky, some weighing as much as 200 lbs. No one is sure why. ohyeahfacts: (The Essential Book of Useless Information)
