When I woke up this morning I had a revelation.. “catastrophe” is like “cat ass trophy”.

“The wages of sin are death, but after taxes are taken out, it’s more of a tired feeling” — Paula Poundstone (a)
If you’re going to tell someone they’re wrong, make *sure* you’re right – otherwise you’ll look like a fool.
“We’ve got a TTL that’s a hidden value in life.” —DefCon Radio quote I just heard
I’m impressed with reCaptcha v3. I haven’t gotten any spam through my contact forms on various sites I manage since I installed it. The best part is that I don’t have to subject any innocent people to clicking on endless pictures of storefronts, cars and traffic signals. I fucking hate that shit. I hate it […]
It would be nice if Reddit kept track of posts you’ve seen and omitted them from your feed if someone else posted it.
There are events in my life that have evoked immense feelings. These feelings are very much personal in that I cannot transfer them to another person in a loss-less format. Meaning, I cannot create the exact same feelings in someone that I felt myself during those events. And logically so – we are all individuals […]

“Hyper[insertwordhere]” is becoming annoying. I noticed this buzzword during the 2016 U.S. presidential elections and it seems to still be going strong. It’s annoying, but also interesting as a study in popular journalism trends. Trendsetters can use words like this to ‘boost’ their stories and ideas because of the effect of familiarity and repetition. Which […]
I had a dream this morning about a building. I had to go to the bathroom I had apparently been working I.T. in floors 1-3 of the building for the entirety of my career (20+ years) I went up to the 4th floor of the building (toward the top). When I got there, there were […]
“Become a merchant in the gift economy” I am saddened this morning at a news story about a couple who had been cycling across the world who were killed by supposed ISIS members for no real reason other than the reported ‘they were non-believers’. However, their story is much more than that as I found […]
Maybe the Amish are on the right track after all. It’s going to continue to get harder and harder for the general population to discern between reality and a fabrication. I feel a recursive trend here. Maybe we really are living in a holographic universe.
When I was 5 or so I’d get to this point in the game every once in a while. It’s always stuck in my mind. Back then, “Shamus” was its own universe to me, an entire world in and of itself – and I’d found a “dead end”. It was mystifying to me, like standing […]
I don’t think “My Sweet Lord” sounds anything like “He’s So Fine”.
Music is an ART, not an INDUSTRY.
I think I ‘sync’ more with 3/4 than 4/4.
Where sound lacks, looks help.
“A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.” I fucking love that quote.
Damn, if I just lose 1 more subscriber..lol
She’s just gone to bed.
There is inherent beauty in minimalism.
Desalinization technologies Renewable (solar/wind) energies Open and moral A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) systems Autonomous vehicles (cars, but moreso drones/quadcopters, including passenger and freight/non) and autonomous vehicle networks Freight/shipping services (FedEx/UPS/etc.) Open Source security-focused hardware and software Electronic voting machines with paper receipts
“The media” is. Rather, the media is simply a conduit. A platform. A “thing”. It can be used for good or for evil – to spread truth or spread lies. It 100.0% relies on whomever is using “the media” to choose the context, accuracy, editorial spin, on whatever facts or incidents have occurred. I think […]
You crave the wonderful heightened sensations and pleasures given from food, music, touch, and sight but your general stability becomes compromised – which manifests itself as anxiety to non-real issues, apathy towards effort and ultimately altogether creating an aversion towards the (at that point in time) seemingly underwhelming and boring world of sobriety.
Livestreaming platforms are all the same. Why do there have to be 5 different apps/platforms (Periscope, live.me, Stre.am, YouNow, UStream, I could name more) that all feature people doing nothing?
I remember my alternative name for this was, “International STFU Day” =p~
Does anyone really need instructions these days on leaving a voicemail? “Please leave a message after the tone. When you are done, hang up or dial # for more options. Press # to send a fax.” Seriously? Can I just have an option for a BEEP after the last ring finishes? Or, at the least, […]
