The best laid plans of mice and men…

“In every bit of honest writing in the world there is a base theme. Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love. There are shorter means, many of them. There is writing promoting…

Why do people suck?

It is a univerally agreed upon and understood truth that people are the worst. A person is not people. A person can generally considered to be intelligent, understanding, caring, thoughtful, and compassionate. People on the other hand, are ridiculous, narcissistic, indolent, short-sighted, and decietful. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule. There are…

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. We had a nice day. I woke up to the smell of cinnamon rolls and pumpkin pies. We watched the parade together, then, I spatchcocked the turkey and we put it on the smoker. It took longer than last year, but it was a larger turkey than last…

A shameless self-promotion

I’ve been in the workshop the past few nights making pens. It had been a while since I turned a pen and I wanted to try a few different things. The first night, I turned a few blanks of Wenge which was a type of wood that gave me some difficulty the last time I…

Not enough time

The shorter days are starting to wear on me. I wake up in the morning and it’s still dark. By the time I get to work, the sun is just coming out. When I leave work, I have about 45 minutes before sunset. By the end of next month, it will be completely dark when…

With this machine, I could…dare I say it? Take over the world!

Ahem. Sorry about that. My evil genius was showing. I made a few things this past week. They’re nothing too special, but I think it’s cool because I’m finally putting some of the self-taught 3D modeling skills together to make things that are functional and not just fun. Going on the internet and finding designs…

Star Trek: Prodigy

I just finished watching all 3 episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy. I recommend you give it a try. I thought the first episode, which was a two-parter, was a bit difficult to follow because there wasn’t much ado about the Federation. In fact, my wife came into the room while I was watching the first…

Shower thoughts

I was in the shower this morning running the hot water over my head. It felt good and it got me thinking. If the internal body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, and I can feel the heat from the shower, how quickly does the temperature conduct to the brain? The brain can’t feel, so the…

Oops I did it again

I forgot to take my medicine yesterday. I didn’t realize it until dinner last night. By then it was too late to take it, so I had to wait until this morning. By the time I woke up, my head was splitting from the pain. I could actually hear my eyes rolling around in their…
