    In Crowd

    Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

    Hello ‘The One’, So, it has come to my attention, that the only people who can have valid opinions on certain things are the people that actually do that thing.  This is opinion is almost exclusively to sports, where people argue, especially players, that you cannot judge because you have little experience.  This has mainly [...]

    Free Agency

    Saturday, July 30th, 2011

    This last week has been incredibly entertaining in the NFL. Since the new CBA was agreed to (not yet in place, legalities), free agency has been moving at a fast and furious pace. My team, the Packers, have not really done anything. This is not surprising, as they haven’t really done anything in the last [...]

    Citation Needed

    Friday, July 8th, 2011

    So yesterday, I was reading an article regarding the NFL lockout.  The content of the article was immaterial, but what struck me was that unnamed sources continued to supply information about the status of the lockout.  I was curious what incentive sources have for leaking information.   Clearly, if you work for the Government or a [...]

    E Sport

    Friday, June 24th, 2011

      Hello Mr. or Miss Reader, In this post, I’m not going to rant about something thats bothering you, but simply pose a question that I’ve been pondering.  There is no right or wrong answer here;  I’m simply thinking aloud.  In fact, in reality, I don’t even care what the answer is.   The question here, [...]

    Elevator 101

    Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

    Hello Blog Reader, Today, I’m going to discuss how to properly use an elevator (lift for UK speakers).  I realize that all one of you probably already knows this, but in case this blog ever gets more readers, I felt I’d share this.  This won’t be a discussion of elevator basics, like not standing in [...]

    Getting on the Freeway 101

    Thursday, June 9th, 2011

    Hello Dear Reader, Freeway Meter Sign Many freeway on-ramps tend to have metered entrances.  These meters are designed (self-referential definition incoming) to meter the rate of traffic that enters the freeway, thus reducing congestion.  While we could argue the merits of meters, that is not the point of this lesson.  Like it or not, they [...]

    Half Don’t

    Monday, June 6th, 2011

    Hello Reader, So my Girlfriend and I are planning on taking a trip to Yosemite this fall.  The two of us are rather avid hikers and were planning on hiking Yosemite’s majestic Half Dome.  Half Dome We quickly learned that a permit is required in order to hike Half Dome.  This is apparently because too [...]

    Difficulty

    Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

    Hello possible blog reader, So this is going to be a little bit of a different rant than my previous rants.  This time, I’m going to talk about difficulty, specifically in video games.  Apparently there has been a bit of a tiff with the WoW players.  No, I do not play WoW.  But as a [...]

    Freedom of Speech 101

    Thursday, May 26th, 2011

    Hello Blog Reader, Today, I shall resurrect the 101 classes to teach everyone about Freedom of Speech.  One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone gets banned or kicked from a forum, chat room or game, or gets fired from their job, for saying something dumb.  They, or their defenders, inevitably come back with, [...]

    Alive, and possibly well.

    Monday, May 23rd, 2011

    Hello Blog Reader (singular), Apparently people do in fact read this blog, even though clearly we haven’t updated it in 2 1/2 years.  Well, maybe I’ll change that.  My partner in crime may also post some things, we’ll see.  It is not that we ran out of things to complain about, just decided to stop [...]
