Today's WTF moment - oxygenating plants makes them grow?

Today’s WTF moment – oxygenating plants makes them grow?

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

I was checking my local hardware store’s website for available 50CFM vent fans and this ad caught my eye. I couldn’t let this one go, so I found the manufacturer’s site and it also expounded on the virtues of oxygenated water for plants. Checking their site and FAQ section, they had plenty of marketing material […]

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus sucks

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus sucks

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

UPDATE About a month ago, I got my hands on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Right out of the box, battery life REALLY sucked. I couldn’t go more than a couple hours before my 100% battery would be warning me it needed juice. In the last 30 days however, my phone has had two forced updates […]

Spied this on the floor of the bathroom and actually laughed out loud. Thanks Glamour for getting both sides of the story. What a bunch of morons.

I wish there was a way to rob banks, but there isn't

I wish there was a way to rob banks, but there isn’t

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Almost everyone knows the house always wins in Vegas, but there are a few cases where the house doesn’t win. In some cases, professional gamblers are able to make a very good living by taking the house to the cleaners month after month. I wish there was a way to win with banks, but there […]

DocumentIO - You suck.

DocumentIO – You suck.

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

I normally don’t like publicly flaming companies… there are a multitude of reasons why a transaction might go bad, none of which deserve public ridicule. Usually if one puts in enough effort and explains themselves clearly, things get resolved. I started out my relationship with DocumentIO.com really liking them. They shipped out my order very […]

I just lost The Game

I just lost The Game

Monday, January 25th, 2010

It’s easy to lose The Game. In fact, you can lose The Game the very same second you understand exactly how to play it. I did. The Game is everywhere, and some people are so upset by constantly losing, they write angry emails to bloggers detailing how hurt they are over people even posting anything […]

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 […]

The other side of the coin, when the handicapped go too far

The other side of the coin, when the handicapped go too far

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

This article (PDF) kinda makes me want to find a blind guy and sucker punch him… just because he wouldn’t see it coming. I know I just ranted not too long ago about people abusing the handicapped, but this is asinine. Universities can “not purchase, recommend or promote use of the Kindle DX, or any […]

Now THAT is a sport!

Monday, December 21st, 2009

Police said members of a hunting party opened fire on Christos Constantinou as he moved through the undergrowth dressed in an animal hide. Forget those loud neon jackets! I think all hunters should dress in animal hide during hunting season. It would definitely make the whole thing a heck of a lot more “sporting”!

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 […]
