Some things I just do for my personal amusement

Some time back, when I was tinkering with my WiFi set-up, I changed the SSID to “FBI Surveillance Van #2″.  Just a bit of personal amusement. I found out today that my younger niece completely freaked out recently because she thought the FBI was in the neighborhood snooping around.  (Given the legal history of her […]

Biathacross

I’ve had a couple of road jobs recently and have been contemplating the verities of the universe, the meaning of life, and other assorted very deep thoughts.  Well, that’s always what I plan to do on a road trip.  It usually doesn’t work out that way. This week I wasn’t able to get my new […]

My Idea for a new Winter Sport

This is a team competition combining Snowboard Cross with Biathlon. 2 snowboarders and one shooter per team.  The shooter uses a paintball gun and gets one round only.  The shooter can set up anywhere on the course and can shoot either a snowboarder or another shooter.  If you’re hit, you’re out (shooter or boarder).  3 […]

Motivation

I’ve been having some trouble getting anything accomplished the past few days.  For example, this morning I planned to drink heavily all day, but I just never got around to it.

An added bonus

I picked up a new firearm today.  Details aren’t necessarily important.  I’ve been saving a bit here and there for almost 2 years to be able to do this, and I finally got it.  I know this is kind of perverse, but when I got it home, I noticed there is a sticker on the […]

Video of the Day

I’m not sure exactly what the point of this video is, but if I ever need ice cubes in glasses I know who to call.

Getting to know you

Well, school has started again.  I’ve got two online classes this semester in addition to my “on campus” classes.  One of the things I find truly fascinating about the online class experience is that the instructors insist on trying to develop something akin to a sense of community for each class.  Every semester, every class, […]

Just can’t help myself

I’ve been plugging along all semester in an online introductory IT class.  Now, it hasn’t been worthless; I’ve been exposed to quite a bit of stuff I didn’t know or was only vaguely familiar with, but the whole experience has been rather frustrating.  Feedback from the instructor has been minimal.  Out of assignments for 23 […]
