Some, well, most religious fundamentalists and their minions refuse to acknowledge evolution as fact. They say the only proof it has that it exists lies in the drawings of Darwin’s notebooks. These are also the same folks that believe Earth is only 6000-10,000 years old. I am fine with people having faith and religion. Really, […]


I need to briefly comment on some cultural practices among homo sapiens that I find incredibly unusual. These are practices we do each and every day and probably are so accustomed to them, that we would never even stop to think about how odd, and frankly, disgusting they truly are. The first is public restrooms with multiple […]


Seriously though… these photos are pretty spectacular. As much as I wish we lived in the days of “Star Trek Technology”, I’m pretty freaking amazed at the technology we possess that allows us to take photos like the ones HERE      


The best day of my life was February 8, 2010. It was 4am. I had been up for too long.  I stood outside Kennedy Space Center wrapped in a blanket, shivering in the surprisingly brisk Florida air that year. Didn’t matter. What I was about to see would make it all worth it. 4:15am the […]


I keep promising myself I’m going to go to bed at some point tonight. You know that Heineken commercial with that uber catchy tune? I’ve been wracking my brain for weeks on who this is. Then I just asked Skynet google.


Super Rad Video

05May11

OK – so two super rad videos of the same song… Peter Schilling’s “Major Tom (Coming Home)” as done by himself, and remake by Shiny Toy Guns. Can I just say that Shiny Toy Guns version is fantastic… I can close my eyes and really imagine being “Major Tom”. /sigh. I’ll never be in space […]


I am glad that Osama bin Laden is dead. I am not happy about how this country celebrated the death. I can’t dance in the street over something like that. However – we certainly had the right to do what we did. I do not know how you could argue against it, but, some extremists […]


Bin Laden is a jerk. He’s a murderer, he’s a manipulator of Muslims, he lives with riches while he instructs his followers to die. He’s scary as hell, he cares about no other human being, and I certainly have no interest in running into him or his posse in a dark alley. Well, as of […]


OK – so I don’t KNOW we’re not alone in this universe… but I’m fairly certain. I find it hard to believe that the size of this universe is only home to one measly planet fostering life. I’ve never seen an alien. I’ve never seen a UFO, but my logic tells me they must exist. […]


Three years ago I saw my first episode of Fringe. Hooked since episode 1, I was literally fuming when I heard Fox, and the geniuses that run that channel, moved Fringe to the dreaded Friday time slot. This time slot killed another smart show from the past, one called “Firefly” – you may remember. Well, […]
