Let's talk about gun control

Let’s talk about gun control

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

I don’t own a gun. I want one… heck, I’ve made lists of guns I’d want to buy… but this post isn’t about that. It’s about the absolute insanity of “gun nut” types when it comes to even trying to have a discussion about gun control. So I figured, why not take this gun debate […]

Feds push for mobile phone tracking, even when idle

Feds push for mobile phone tracking, even when idle

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

When people think somehow “they” are able to track me by RFID implant, aside from trying to explain the limitations of the technology and the actual effective range of the implant (2 inches), I also point out that cell phones are able to pinpoint your exact whereabouts at any time. Private companies providing location based […]

The first really interesting news about cancer in a long time

The first really interesting news about cancer in a long time

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Something that’s always bothered me is this feeling that everyone in the cancer industry (yes, it is an industry) is hiding something. Like they are keeping the simple truth in the shadows, while searching desperately for a more complicated “cure” that only they can make/control, and does not involve something people could easily do on […]

Exploding implants: The new face / breasts / buttocks of terror

Exploding implants: The new face / breasts / buttocks of terror

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

I just posted a couple weeks ago that all this airport scanner security is pointless because people will always be able to get things in to places and on to planes… and that a real security includes diplomacy, castigation, and a complete overhaul of our priorities and perhaps our point of view both domestically and […]

Full body scanners at the airport are pointless

Full body scanners at the airport are pointless

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

After the shoe bomber we now have to remove our shoes at the security line. After the liquid bomber, no more water bottles or liquids over 3oz. After the underwear bomber, airports are deploying equipment to essentially remove our underwear for us. As shown in these images, scanners are great for catching weapons stuffed into […]

My favorite “Auto-Tune The News” is still #3

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

Sometimes it’s hard to top yourself, you know? My favorite Auto-Tune The News vid is still #3. The Ron Paul segment is great, but I think the Cheney stuff is the best bit which starts at 3:03 and ends with a surprisingly good vocalization that, ironically, isn’t auto-tuned.

Why the "internal customer" really shouldn't be

Why the “internal customer” really shouldn’t be

Friday, December 18th, 2009

Something that has always bothered me about working a “corporate job” is the idea of treating your co-workers like customers. The idea of an “internal customer” is everywhere, and is commonly taught at colleges and business schools. Just as satisfied external customers lead to financial success, satisfied employees can also lead to long-term success of […]

Omitting data to make a completely inaccurate point

Friday, October 9th, 2009

In this article “More women than men dismissed from military for being gay” about the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, the author (Adam Levine) is basically saying the military is being unfair to women. The article never states this outright, but even the title is written in such a way that is trying to […]

Local politicians with unfortunate names

Local politicians with unfortunate names

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

On my way to work today I finally noticed some of the names on the political signs that have been posted all over town. I had to laugh as I came to two consecutive stop signs which stood watch over two different political signs of two unfortunately named men running for a superior court judge […]

Beijing Olympics artistic social commentary

Beijing Olympics artistic social commentary

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

Remember kids: This post is probably going to get my blog censored in a certain very large Asian nation, but I thought it was quite interesting to see all the political commentary buzzing around the internet in editorial style cartoon format. Even though this was one of the most protested Olympic games since Berlin 1936, […]
